Preston Dental Saskatoon Dental Clinic Services

Did you know that the position of your teeth and jaw is critical to the function of your bite? When your top and bottom teeth do not fit together correctly, it can make chewing some foods difficult and may cause teeth to wear down over time. Many people have overcrowded teeth which can make hygiene more difficult to maintain and can lead to cavities and gum disease.

There are a variety of orthodontic options available to solve bite issues, including clear aligners. Clear aligners are an alternative solution to traditional braces and are often referred to as Invisalign or SureSmile. While traditional braces are very effective, some patients prefer the more aesthetic option that clear aligners provide. Invisalign and SureSmile offer the orthodontic correcting power of braces but without the added challenge of wires and brackets, replacing them with a clear tray that is virtually invisible.

Invisalign & SureSmile combine advanced digital planning and clear aligners to achieve precise tooth movement. The process starts with a consultation: the dentist will personalize your treatment through digital planning, photos and records and answer any of the questions you have about the treatment. Additionally, patients will see a digital animation of the proposed tooth movement. A digital scan is taken of your teeth, which is then used to create your trays. Each new set of trays will result in incremental movements, building off the last tray until the desired result is achieved. Invisalign and SureSmile treatments are designed to enhance bite and function along with aesthetics.

One of the best things about clear aligners is the ability to easily remove them. Unlike traditional braces, you can take them out to eat, brush, and floss. Some patients drink coffee with their clear aligners in which may cause them to stain, but there are cleaners available to minimize any staining. Keeping up with your dental hygiene is as easy as removing your trays and proceeding with your regular flossing and brushing routine. Invisalign and SureSmile take away the hassle of emergency orthodontic visits for broken wires or brackets. Treatment times average between 918 months as long as the aligners are worn for the recommended 22 hours per day.

Invisalign & SureSmile treatments provide a convenient and discrete means to improve function and alignment of your teeth while achieving your smile goals.
