Improve your Smiles with Invisalign in Lloydminster, AB
For patients who have lapsed in their previous orthodontic treatment, or who require minor adjustments to create a healthy and attractive smile, Dr. Schmidt and Dr. Bexson provide Invisalign® in Lloydminster, AB. SmileWorks Dental Group
uses these trays to correct minor to moderate issues of misalignment for patients throughout Lloydminster, Blackfoot, Vermilion, and the surrounding communities of central Alberta.
How Does Invisalign® Work?
This system of clear aligner trays is designed to move teeth into their ideal position using several phases of treatment. In order to create your aligner trays, our Lloydminster Invisalign® provider takes digital impressions of your bite. These impressions will then be used to fabricate your trays and will provide us with a time-frame based on how many sets of trays your treatment will require before final results are achieved.
Once your treatment plan has been created and your initial aligners are sent to our office, you can expect to wear Invisalign® throughout the day and night, only removing the aligners to eat and brush teeth. These trays will be changed out for the next set every two weeks, gradually shifting the teeth into proper alignment, and correcting crowding and spacing issues.
The Benefits of Invisalign®
Clear aligner treatment has several benefits for patients who qualify—the most immediate benefit being that the trays are virtually unnoticeable. In addition to the discreet nature of treatment, clear aligners can be removed during meals, allowing you to continue your regular diet and at-home oral hygiene routine.
Patients with straighter teeth are more likely to have better dental and periodontal health. With improved alignment, teeth can be more easily brushed and flossed, limiting chances for developing decay in hard-to-reach areas between tight or overcrowded teeth. Adjusted bite—also known as occlusion—can also make for better jaw alignment, and helps patients to avoid complications of TMD (temporomandibular joint dysfunction).
Candidates for Invisalign®
While beneficial for many, Invisalign® is not ideal for every patient. Clear aligner orthodontic treatments are best suited for patients exhibiting mild to moderate bite or teeth misalignment issues. This makes Invisalign® optimal for patients who have previously undergone orthodontics and are experiencing a relapse in alignment problems, and those whose jaw development is matured and does not require excessive correction. Should you need more comprehensive treatment through traditional orthodontics, we work with you to ensure that you have access to the care you need.
