Invisalign Treatment
in North York

Invisalign clear orthodontic aligners straighten teeth, close gaps and align your bite. Complete treatment in as little as 6 months. Invisalign is the clear alternative to braces.

Invisalign has earned a name for itself as the most advanced clear aligner system in the world. Your treatment may be completed in as little as 6 months, but you will start to see a difference in just a few weeks. Your trays are easily removable and easy to clean so you can enjoy all the foods you love and still keep that clean-mouth-feel.

Why choose invisalign?

Comfort is key for Invisalign. Invisalign are the only clear aligners that use Smart Track Material® for optimal comfort and precision. Your trays are hand-trimmed to match your gum line to prevent irritation or scratching. You will start noticing changes with just a few weeks of treatment and see the results you want in 6 to 18 months. You’ll be smiling big in no time!

    Patients may prefer wearing Invisalign because of how convenient it is in comparison to wearing traditional braces.
  • The aligners are clear so they don’t distract from your smile.
  • They are only worn for 22 hours a day so you can take them out to eat dinner, go on a date, or make an important presentation at work.
  • You can brush and floss your teeth like normal, and no special tools (or special floss) is required.
  • There is less of a risk that your teeth will become stained as compared with wearing metal or “invisible” braces that can be difficult to clean.
  • The procedure is more comfortable since the aligners move teeth into place slowly and only focus on a few teeth at a time.
  • Aligners are easy to take care of, and you only use the same aligner for a couple of weeks.

How does it work?

Your Treatment Plan

The process begins by taking an impression of your teeth to create your treatment plan. Once the impression is taken we will be able to capture the specific details we need to create the most effective and comfortable Invisalign treatment for you.

The First Aligners

Once the aligners arrive, special fasteners are often necessary. These are bonded temporarily to your teeth so that you can easily clip in your aligners but don’t worry, they’re mostly invisible and come off at the end of treatment.

Follow up Appointments

We will provide you with each set of clear aligners to wear for 1-2 weeks. Your teeth will shift into place a little at a time as the aligners are changed for the next in the series until your teeth have been moved to their final, correct position. Visits to the office will be scheduled roughly once every 1-2 months to ensure that the treatment is going as planned.

Cost of Invisalign in North York

With a typical insurance plan, Invisalign treatment usually averages between $3000 and $5000+ out-of-pocket. After an oral exam, we would be happy to provide you with an accurate quote so you can find out how much your insurance plan will cover and what your actual out-of-pocket expenses would be. Without insurance, Invisalign treatment typically costs about $4000 to $6000+.

    How do we actually determine the cost of your Invisalign treatment and why does it seem so expensive? When considering the cost of orthodontics, there are a few things to consider:
  • The current condition of your overall oral health.
  • How much your teeth need to shift.
  • The length of your treatment.

Because every smile is so different, the only way to find out for sure if Invisalign is the best solution for you and how much it will cost you out of pocket is to come in for a consultation. Tell us your personal goals for your smile, let us examine your teeth and we will tailor a personalized treatment plan that will accomplish your wants and needs. Even if you’re not sure if you qualify for Invisalign because of your age, or particularly ambitious goals, it never hurts to ask. There are solutions available for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Invisalign is both more comfortable and more discrete than braces. The clear custom-fit trays are hardly noticeable and most people won’t even realize you’re wearing them. Plus, they can be removed for important presentations or dates! The clear trays are also smooth against the inside of your mouth and don’t pinch or scratch like the brackets from braces. If your trays rub on your gums, they can be easily adjusted. Invisalign trays exert a gentler pressure compared to braces and only shift a few teeth at a time. That makes Invisalign orthodontics far more comfortable than conventional methods.
Invisalign makes changes to your teeth very gradually. Minor changes can be made in a few short weeks with little discomfort, and more complex changes can occur over a longer span of time to ensure you stay as comfortable as possible. There may be some discomfort, but if your Invisalign hurts, let us know.
On average, it takes anywhere from 6 to 12 months for your teeth to move into the correct position with Invisalign. Most people start noticing some movement, however, within the first 6 weeks after getting their first set of aligner trays. The more changes you would like to see, the longer it will take no matter what orthodontic option you choose.
Twice a day, remove your tray and clean it and your teeth before putting it back in. If you take your aligner out at any time, always rinse it before you put it back in, and try not to let it sit in open air when you aren’t wearing it. You may soak your aligners in denture cleaner or Invisalign cleaning crystals and carefully rinse them before putting them back in your mouth. Do not eat or drink with your trays in, and do not use toothpaste to clean your trays. We will provide you with detailed home care instructions when you receive your first trays.
Don't eat with your aligners in your mouth. If you expose your aligners to the strong chewing forces that your teeth are trained to exert, you can damage or even crack your aligners, plus it's just messy and not easy to eat with Invisalign in your mouth.
Yes, even when you sleep. They should be worn all day and night, except when eating and drinking. Your clear aligners won't work if they're not constantly shifting your teeth over time, which means you've gotta wear them!
