Invisalign treatment in New Westminster

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an almost invisible way of helping to treat crooked teeth using plastic aligners. They are placed over the teeth so that they can gradually move and straighten the teeth’s alignment without interrupting the recipient’s lifestyle too much.

The Invisalign process 

There are several steps involved in preparing your teeth for Invisalign, which are:

  • your dentist, who specializes in Invisalign in New Westminster, will undertake a 3D scan of the teeth;
  • a straightening strategy will be prepared based from the results of the scans;
  • the aligners will then be custom made;
  • the recipient will have to wear these aligners in three to four sets at one time, which will be replaced at two week interval until the best outcome for straightening  the teeth has been achieved;
  • Your dentist, who has experience with Invisalign in New Westminster, will tell you when the treatment has been successfully completed.

Invisalign New WestminsterSome things you should know before choosing Invisalign

  1. You’ll experience little or no discomfort.
  2. Invisalign treatment is twice as fast as using a traditional metal brace to straighten teeth.
  3. Rubber bands might be used with the aligners.
  4. Retainers will need to be used following Invisalign treatment.
  5. The aligners must be worn for 20–22 hours every day.

The use of Invisalign has changed the teeth alignment process forever, as all you require are clear plastic aligners, which will shift your teeth so that they are far straighter and will allow you to smile without worrying about your teeth’s appearance.

What benefits are there for Invisalign?

  • They are more comfortable than traditional braces.
  • Because they can be removed easily for eating, the recipient can eat normally.
  • Most people don’t know that you are wearing a device that is actually straightening your teeth. 


1. What happens if you are invited to dinner for two hours but you forget to put on your aligners?

You will have to make up for the time lost, so if you have lost 2 hours, then it is important to wear the clear aligners for those two hours for the remainder of that day or the day after.

2. How long does the Invisalign treatment take?

Minor tooth crowding or the presence of small gaps in the teeth may only require 7 aligners, and as long as each aligner is in place for seven days, the treatment could take only 7 weeks.

3. Is the Invisalign treatment painful?

Most patients may experience pressure, not pain, for the first 2 days of beginning Invisalign treatment.

4. Will my speech be affected when wearing Invisalign aligners?

To begin with, your lips and tongue will have to adapt to the presence of the aligners. This will take about 2 weeks.  

5. Do I have to be careful what I eat while being treated with Invisalign?

You don’t need to alter your diet with the Invisalign treatment.

You can expect the dentists who specialize in Invisalign in New Westminster to make the best choices for your dental treatment, which will help to maintain your smile.
