Invisalign in Calgary


Invisalign is a popular orthodontic treatment that uses clear aligners to straighten teeth. Here are some key points about Invisalign:

Clear Aligners: Invisalign consists of a series of clear, removable aligners that are custom-made for each patient. These aligners are made of a flexible plastic material designed to gradually shift teeth into the desired position.

Custom Treatment Plan: Treatment begins with a consultation where the dentist or orthodontist assesses your teeth and creates a custom treatment plan. Using 3D imaging technology, a series of aligners are created specifically for your teeth to achieve the planned movements.

Wearing Aligners: Each set of aligners is worn for about 1-2 weeks, depending on your treatment plan, before progressing to the next set. They should be worn for 20-22 hours per day, only removing them for eating, drinking (except water), brushing, and flossing.


  • Appearance: Invisalign aligners are clear and virtually invisible, making them less noticeable than traditional metal braces.

  • Comfort: The aligners are smooth and comfortable compared to braces, which can sometimes cause irritation to the gums and cheeks.

  • Convenience: Since they are removable, you can continue to eat your favorite foods without restrictions and maintain your usual oral hygiene routine.

Treatment Duration: The length of treatment varies based on individual needs, but typically ranges from several months to a few years, depending on the complexity of the case.


Retention: After completing the series of aligners, a retainer may be recommended to prevent teeth from shifting back to their original position.

Invisalign is suitable for treating a wide range of orthodontic issues, including crowding, spacing, crossbite, overbite, and underbite. It's a popular choice among adults and teens who prefer a more discreet orthodontic treatment option compared to traditional braces.
