Covertly Straighten Your Smile with Invisalign
Traditional braces straighten and align mouths efficiently, but they fill your mouth with metal brackets and wires in the meantime. If you don’t want that metal obstructing your smile, consider other alignment options, like Invisalign.
The team at Today’s Dental in Edmonton can help you straighten your teeth with this treatment. Invisalign consists of a series of transparent plastic aligning trays that mould to your teeth, pushing them gradually.

If you are considering Invisalign Today’s Dental will be happy to provide the information you need. It’s important to note that the overall treatment time varies per individual. However, for must adults, you can expect the process to take approximately one year.
Invisalign treatment is completed using a series of custom-made aligners. You will wear each set of aligners for a specified amount of time and your teeth will gradually shift into place. The aligner material is clear, virtually invisible, and will not irritate your cheeks or gums. X-rays and impressions of your teeth are necessary at the start of the process to create the aligners and understand your unique treatment plan.
When your treatment is complete, you get to enjoy the results. In some cases, we may recommend the use of a retainer to keep your teeth in their new position. Again, each treatment plan is different. It’s important to note that you should wear your aligners 20 to 22 hours per day to ensure results during the expected time frame.
