Types of treatment .....
is a series of clear plastic aligning braces that can allow
you to have your teeth straightened without the need for
metal braces and wires in your mouth. Invisalign®
aligners are custom moulded to your teeth after some
detailed impressions are taken. Each set of aligners are
worn for 22 hours per day over a 2 week period before
proceeding to the next stage.
The advantages of Invisalign® are:
1) They are clear i.e. they are nearly invisible.
2) They are comfortable (there are no sharp wires or brackets that rub against your lips and cheeks.
3) They are removable. This enables you to clean and floss your teeth easily.

What patients at St. Michael's say ...
"Using Invisalign® to straighten my teeth has been a great experience. The aligners are comfortable and easy to wear. They are also very discreet. As a dentist, I have felt confident wearing them while at work.
I had had orthodontic treatment as a teenager which had relapsed. I have found Invisalign® much more comfortable to wear than the fixed appliance I had previously".
Leila Hankin (age 31)
"Invisalign® has given me the confidence to smile as I approach my 50th birthday. As an adult the treatment has been so easy to adapt to my lifestyle and no one really noticed I was wearing braces".
Joan Atkinson (age 49)
"Simple, easy with rapid results. Slight discomfort during tray change. Other than that, no issues whatsoever".
