Orthodontics & Invisalign in Port Hawkesbury
Orthodontic treatment for teeth straightening can play an important role in the creation of a beautiful smile. Your team at Port Hawkesbury Dental Group is proud to offer two options: Invisalign® and braces.
The beauty of Invisalign®
Invisalign® is a modern, metal-free way to straighten teeth as an alternative to braces. The benefits are clear:
- Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible
- The aligners are smooth and comfortable
- Aligners can be removed for easy cleaning
- You can eat whatever you want!
- There are no wires or brackets to irritate your mouth
- It's easy to floss and brush your teeth
Invisalign in Port Hawkesbury: Is it right for you?
If you’re a candidate for Invisalign®, our team will take impressions of your smile and use 3D imaging software to create a series of virtually invisible aligners.
You’ll wear each aligner in the series for approximately two weeks before moving on to the next.
The result is a beautiful straight smile with no wires! Patients opting for Invisalign® orthodontic treatment will need to attend appointments at our office every four to six weeks, so our team can monitor their progress.
Braces in Port Hawkesbury
Unlike Invisalign®, braces cannot be removed and must be tightened at regular dental appointments. Over time braces can correct problems with your teeth, bite and jaw – while also improving the overall look of your smile.
Today, there are plenty of options available that can make braces much smaller, less noticeable, and more comfortable.
Retainers in Port Hawkesbury
A retainer is an orthodontic appliance (usually removable) that is supposed to be worn after your orthodontist removes your braces. When braces are removed, the teeth have a tendency to want to return back to their original positions. Retainers prevent this from happening.
Most upper retainers are made of wire and hard plastic and fit in the roof of your mouth. A lower retainer can be removable or permanently cemented to the lower teeth so that it doesn’t come out.
