Toronto Dentist Dr. Carol Waldman helps offers better alternative to traditional braces with Invisalign
Toronto, ON -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/29/2015 --Dr. Carol Waldman is helping Toronto patients achieve straight, beautiful smiles with some of the latest dental technology that is eliminating the need for traditional brackets and wires. With Invisalign therapy, patients can feel confident about their smiles even while undergoing orthodontic treatment.
Invisalign clear braces are customized clear plastic aligners that fit snugly over the teeth and are virtually invisible at speaking distance. The aligners are designed using 3D computer technology and a series of aligners is created for each patient to switch out every two weeks throughout the treatment period. In addition to being virtually invisible, patients also enjoy the lifestyle flexibility that Invisalign offers, with the aligners being completely removable for eating and other special occasions.
Prior to the start of treatment, Dr. Waldman works with each patient individually to create a computerized video of the treatment progress from beginning to end. She and the patient discuss desired outcomes for treatment and images from the video are used to design the series of aligners that gradually shift teeth into position.
Although patients are instructed to wear the aligners 22 hours per day, they are able to easily remove them while eating, brushing and flossing. This presents Invisalign patients with several distinct advantages compared to patients with conventional braces as it eliminates the problem of food getting stuck in between wires and brackets, and it also doesn't interfere with the patient's brushing and flossing routine. On average, Invisalign patients have less instances of staining, plaque, and decay upon the completion of their treatment compared to patients with conventional braces because the aligners have not interfered with their oral hygiene routine.
Patients who complete Invisalign over the course of 9-18 months often choose to undergo tooth whitening services to make their new, straight smiles truly gleam. Dr. Waldman offers Zoom! teeth whitening services in-office that leave patient's teeth dramatically whiter after just one hour.
