What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment that utilizes clear aligners to straighten teeth discreetly. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, offering a more aesthetically pleasing option for achieving a straighter smile.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign treatment begins with a consultation with Dr. Mehrzad Hakimi and his team at 5 Corner Dental in Surrey, BC. During this consultation, we will assess your teeth and create a customized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs.

Once your treatment plan is established, a series of clear aligners will be custom-made for you. These aligners are worn over your teeth and gradually shift them into the desired position. Approximately every two weeks, you will switch to a new set of aligners, each one designed to continue the progression of your treatment.

What are the Benefits of Invisalign?

Discreet: Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, allowing you to straighten your teeth without drawing attention to your orthodontic treatment.

Comfortable: The smooth plastic material of Invisalign aligners is gentle on your gums and cheeks, reducing the discomfort often associated with traditional braces.

Removable: Unlike braces, Invisalign aligners are removable, making it easier to maintain good oral hygiene habits. You can also remove them while eating, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods without restrictions.

Effective: Invisalign can effectively correct a wide range of orthodontic issues, including crowded teeth, gaps, overbites, underbites, and crossbites.

What is the Invisalign Procedure Like?

The Invisalign procedure at 5 Corner Dental in Surrey, BC, begins with a consultation to discuss your goals and assess your suitability for treatment. If Invisalign is the right option for you, we will take digital impressions of your teeth to create a precise 3D image.

Using advanced computer technology, we will then map out the precise movements of your teeth throughout the treatment process. This allows us to create a series of custom aligners that will gradually move your teeth into the desired position.

Throughout your treatment, we will monitor your progress to ensure everything is proceeding according to plan. Most patients achieve their desired results within 12 to 18 months, although this can vary depending on individual factors.
