There are many reasons why an adult may wish to have orthodontic treatment. It may be to correct a problem with the alignment of teeth caused by an accident, to treat a malocclusion or to treat an imperfection in their smile for aesthetic reasons.
If you have always wanted to improve the appearance of your smile, but were concerned about the impact of treatment on your life, Invisalign is for you!
Make an appointment with Dr. Victoria Klimovich. She will perform a complete check-up with x-rays of your teeth.
A 3D scan of your teeth and gums is performed. You can already see a simulation of your future smile on the screen.
The Dr. gives you your set of aligners. You wear them about 20 hours a day and then change them according to the treatment plan, every 7 or 10 days.
You can see the alignment of your teeth over the course of a few days and enjoy a brand new smile after only a few months.
Fixed appliances (braces) are the most widely used treatment in the world.
Each bracket is individually fixed to the teeth with dental bonding glue, then a thin metal wire connects the teeth together. Braces act as pressure points on the wire, that moves the teeth in specific direction.
This type of orthodontic treatment creates many spaces that trap food. It is therefore important to brush your teeth immediately after each meal or to rinse your mouth thoroughly with water if you can’t brush your teeth at all.
In-Ovation R brackets are made with great attention to detail. Self-closing gates eliminate the need for elastic ligatures, and therefore, provide a cleaner, more aesthetic look.
Reduced friction between the brackets and the orthodontic wire helps teeth move more freely. This speeds up the alignment phase. So you will see results more quickly.
At the end of your orthodontic treatment, the teeth are perfectly aligned and the braces are removed.
However, it still takes several months for your teeth to stabilise in their new position. We recommend permanent retention as teeth may still move throughout life.
The retention is carried out using a transparent retainer similar to the Invisalign aligners, and/or using a wire bonded on the inner side of the teeth.
It is therefore intended to keep the teeth in a perfect position.
