Adults with misaligned teeth—this message is for you. If you have simply resigned yourself to crooked teeth because you feel like you are too old for braces, we have good news. There are options today that can straighten your smile without brackets and wires. With Invisalign clear braces, you can get the orthodontic treatment you need—and no one will be any the wiser.

We welcome you to contact our Calgary, AB dental clinic to find out more about how Invisalign can change your smile—and maybe your whole outlook on life.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign straightens teeth through a series of clear plastic aligners. These aligners are worn for 22 hours a day—compliance is key for successful treatment—and they gently move the teeth into the desired position.

The clear aligners are virtually invisible, so if you have an important business meeting or social occasion, those around you will likely not even notice them. (Pro tip: You can remove them for an event that is really important, such as wedding pictures.)

Treatment is usually faster with Invisalign, taking most patients about 12 to 18 months rather than the nearly three years it can take with traditional orthodontics.

Benefits of Invisalign

Obviously, the fact that they are clear is a major advantage for most patients, as is the faster treatment. But there are other benefits as well:

  • You remove the aligners for eating, so you will have no food restrictions with Invisalign.
  • Without brackets and wires, cleaning your teeth is easy as well.
  • There are no “adjustments” needed at the dentist, so you’ll have fewer visits. Instead, our dentists will provide you with a few months’ worth of aligners to swap out.
