Their clear design allows for a subtle alternative to conventional orthodontics, making them especially attractive for our adult patients.

Advantages of Wearing Invisalign

  • Eat anything you want. Just remove your aligners during meals and clean your teeth before putting them back in
  • No tedious appliances to clean around – brush and floss as usual
  • Shorter dental appointments, because there are no wires to adjust
  • A clear design that makes your treatment nearly invisible
  • Predictable results that are great for adults and teens
  • BPA-free plastic is non-toxic and easy to clean

More Than a Straight Smile

Having crooked teeth can be embarrassing, but they’re also a risk to your oral health. Investing in orthodontic therapy like Invisalign can significantly lower your risk of common dental problems like cavities, worn teeth and gum disease.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign uses digital mapping to guide your teeth into proper alignment with a series of interchangeable and removable trays. Each set of clear aligners is worn for a minimum of 22 hours per day. Two weeks later, the trays are replaced with the next set in the series.

Since we send you home with several trays at a time, you’re able to progress your tooth movement on your own. We’ll see you for brief follow-ups every six weeks to ensure everything is responding correctly.

Most of our patients complete their Invisalign treatment in about 12 months. We’ll be able to provide you with an individual estimate at the time of your initial exam and X-ray.

Are any Essential Care Dentists trained on Invisalign?

Yes! We are proud to have a number of Invisalign-trained dentists in our team. All dentists and orthodontists who offer Invisalign treatment must complete specialised training.

How do I know if I’m a candidate?

We’ll let you know during your initial consultation with us, which you can schedule now for free–a savings of $300.

How long does it take to complete treatment?

A typical course of treatment may last anywhere from several weeks to two years depending on the severity of misalignment. We’ll let you know exactly how long your treatment will take after we evaluate you.
How often should I wear my trays?
You should wear your trays for 22 hours each day for best results. You must also wear trays while sleeping, though they can be removed for eating.

How many trays will I need?

This depends on the length of your treatment. Typically, you’ll wear a new set of trays every two weeks, with each tray shifting your teeth into proper alignment ever so slightly. The number of trays needed will depend on the current state of your teeth and misalignment.

Is Invisalign painful?

Most patients find Invisalign to be entirely comfortable. You may experience slight pressure when wearing new trays for the first day or so, but this should subside quickly. If you have any issues, please let us know.
