Invisalign® at Morton Dental

Is the idea of wearing metal braces preventing you from taking steps towards straightening your teeth? Then we have the perfect solution: Invisalign!

Invisalign braces use clear, thermoplastic aligners to reposition and straighten your teeth without wires or fixed brackets. Instead, you wear your set of trays for the prescribed time frame (usually two weeks) and switch them out with the next in the series. Gradually, your smile straightens before your eyes.

Advantages of Wearing Invisalign

  • Ideal for smiles of all needs

Invisalign Step by Step

  • Your Consultation — Book an exam and consultation with our practice to find out if you qualify for Invisalign treatment. During your visit, we’ll take a series of photographs, X-rays and moulds of your teeth to use as part of the treatment planning process. If you’re ready to start treatment, just let us know, and we’ll move on to having Invisalign labs fabricate your customised aligners.
  • Picking Up Your Trays — About two weeks after your consultation, your digitally designed Invisalign trays will be ready to start wearing. Every 6-8 weeks, you’ll need to stop by our practice to pick up your next several sets of trays. We’ll take a couple of minutes to evaluate your bite and ensure everything is moving along properly. Unlike traditional braces, you won’t need any “adjustments,” so these visits go by fairly quickly.
  • Everyday Maintenance — Remove your aligners for meals, brushing and flossing. Clean them each night with a soft toothbrush and lukewarm tap water. Avoid hot water or abrasive toothpaste, as they can warp or scratch your trays. Be sure to wear your aligners for a minimum of 22 hours per day, so that your treatment schedule stays on track.
  • Retention — Each case is different, but most of our patients will complete their orthodontic therapy within 12-18 months. When it’s over, you’ll need to have a set of clear retainers on hand to preserve the positioning of your teeth. Your retention system will mimic the appearance of your aligners, so they’re discreet even when worn during the day.
