The first question people tend to ask about Invisalign in Montreal is, “How much does Invisalign cost in Montreal.” We’ve answered that in a previous post here. With an idea of the costs, there’s the question about how you find an Invisalign specialist in Montreal. If you are unsure, you can take a look at the official Invisalign website to search for a professional that offers Invisalign in Montreal.
To get Invisalign for your teeth, you need to visit a professional that is Invisalign certified. Luckily in Montreal, most orthodontists and even some dentists are certified to fit you for Invisalign braces. You can choose to start looking for Invisalign in Montreal right off the bat, or after visiting with a few orthodontists to see what your options are.
By then, you should have a better idea of what Invisalign does, but in case you’re just beginning to do research now, you can find more information about what Invisalign is by visiting the company website. In short, instead of having braces permanently attached to your teeth, Invisalign consists of several clear plastic trays that change ever two weeks. These trays are designed for your teeth and will slowly move your teeth to the right place over time.
They’re removeable which has several advantages. The first is that you can brush and floss much more easily than with normal braces. Even lingual braces which are installed behind your teeth can be problematic for flossing and brushing. As you will get your teeth scanned during the Invisalign installation process, you will also get to see digitally what your teeth will look like when everything is done! The other main advantage is that there are no sharp metal bits that can irritate your mouth and gums. Unlike traditional braces, you will never have issues with an arch wire poking you or requiring emergency dental work.
Some of the more common issues that Invisalign can fix include:
- Overcrowded teeth: this happens when there isn’t enough room in your mouth for all your teeth to fit.
- Widely spaced teeth: this happens when you have too much space in your jaw and as a result you have unsightly gaps between your teeth.
- Crossbites: this happens when your upper and lower jaws aren’t aligned properly left to right which leads to premature wearing on the sides of your teeth.
- Underbites and overbites: This happens when your upper or lower teeth overlap the other.
