Look natural while getting a straighter smile with Invisalign treatment in Calgary, AB
Most people, from teens to seniors, would like to have attractively straight teeth. Yet, few are enthusiastic about wearing obvious bands, brackets, and wires for several years. In many cases, Invisalign can be a terrific alternative. These clear aligners are barely noticeable, so your smile looks natural during treatment. Dr. Palka Sawhney Sharma offers this option at Lake Chaparral Dental Care in Calgary, AB.
A different approach to orthodontics
Conventional orthodontic treatment moves teeth through bone remodeling. Brackets and wires apply steady, controlled pressure. That causes a little bone to dissolve on one side of a tooth and new bone tissue to form on the opposing side, allowing teeth to settle into straighter positions.
Invisalign uses a system of aligners to accomplish similar results. Dr. Palka Sawhney Sharma takes precise impressions of your mouth. Computer software transforms that data into a series of 3-D printed aligners that move teeth with low force. Meanwhile, you see a computer-generated representation of how your smile will change, before you commit to treatment.
In Dr. Palka Sawhney Sharma’s experienced care, Invisalign is suitable for teen and adult patients. A typical treatment plan involves wearing the first set of aligners for one week, before progressing to the next pair, and so on. Each patient’s care is personalized, but depending on how crooked your teeth are, you may be able to complete treatment in a year or less.

Do you offer Invisalign at your practice?
Invisalign has become revolutionary in the world of orthodontic or teeth straightening. It allows patients to take trays home that are specifically treatment planned and design just for them.
The patients change trays every week to achieve their desired results under direct dental supervision.
How does Invisalign work?
In order to aid teeth movement, a white attachment that matches the shade of the patient’s tooth is bonded to specific teeth in a particular fashion. Because the Dentist is monitoring the treatment closely any unwanted movements are corrected right away in order to avoid long term issues.
Although the results are great and predictable, they don’t always replace traditional metal braces. Ask your dentist which is best suited for you.
What is the benefit of Invisalign?
With Invisalign therapy one of the biggest benefits is the relatively pain-free experience you have as a patient. In addition to that when you are eating, when brushing and flossing you are able to remove the aligners and eat and brush afterward in a very comfortable fashion.
This allows patients to care for their oral health in a much easier and effective manner.
