Not too thrilled at the thought of getting braces? Join the club! Hometown Orthodontics offers more and more teens the choice to straighten their teeth using Invisalign Teen – a clear alternative to traditional metal braces. Invisalign aligners are a series of custom-made, virtually invisible, plastic trays that are specifically created to fit over your teeth. These removable trays are worn 22h/day and are changed regularly so that your teeth gently shift into their correct positions. Dr. Virdee is the leading provider of Invisalign Teen in Sudbury and enjoys helping her patients get an A+ smile without ever using braces.
Why are so many teens pumped about Invisalign Teen? Because it lets you LIVE, LAUGH, SMILE…..even while you’re in treatment!
SHOW YOUR SMILE!
Because Invisalign Teen aligners are virtually invisible, there is no need to be self conscious about straightening your teeth. In fact, hardly anyone will notice that you’re wearing your trays. Whether it’s picture day, graduation, prom or you’re just hanging out with your friends, there’s no need to worry – you’re smile will always look great and you’ll always feel confident.
DO YOUR THING!
The convenience of Invisalign Teen allows you to carry on with your life uninterrupted. So whether you’re playing basketball or volleyball, have a solo in the school play or love to share a tune on your clarinet, you can be sure that orthodontic treatment with Invisalign will not get in the way. Go ahead – LIVE, LAUGH, SMILE! .
GO AHEAD – EAT WHAT YOU LIKE!
Since Invisalign Teen aligners are removable, you can eat your favorite foods. All you have to do is pop your aligners out when you eat and pop them back in after you’re done. There are no limitations to what you can eat – pizza, candy apples, popcorn, ribs, or wings. You can even chew gum! There’s no need to worry anymore – LIVE, LAUGH, EAT!
BRUSH, FLOSS….REPEAT! .
Dr. Virdee loves that patients can continue brushing and flossing with ease when using Invisalign Teen – all you have to do is pop your aligners off and you’re good to go. Since metal brackets and wires aren’t used, there is less chance of plaque buildup and embarrassing food stuck between your braces. Even dental cleanings are a breeze! Of course, as your teeth begin to straighten, you will notice that brushing and flossing becomes increasingly easier.
FAST SMILES, WITHOUT ANY HASSLES.
Invisalign Teen aligners are made of clear, smooth plastic material that move your teeth in increments, just as fast as braces. You will be in and out of treatment before you know it! Because each tray moves your teeth gradually, there is no pain associated with tightening braces. And since there are no brackets or wires that could possibly poke your gums and cheeks, there are seldom any emergency visits. The best part about treatment with Invisalign is that the frequency of your visits to the orthodontic office is limited to every 8-12 weeks. This means that straightening your teeth doesn’t have to get in the way of that big football or volleyball game, band or choir practice or an important study session before the big test. So go ahead, LIVE, LAUGH, SMILE.
Clear or Ceramic Braces
Ceramic braces (also known as “clear braces”) are one of the best aesthetic alternative to traditional braces. These braces look and function the same way as traditional braces with the exception that they are virtually clear or tooth-coloured. They are fast and efficient and give you a healthy, confident smile without the attention that metal braces may give. Ceramic braces are just one way that Hometown Orthodontics strives to deliver you the latest technological advances in orthodontic care in Sudbury and Oakville.
Self Ligating Braces
Self-ligating braces are unlike conventional braces that require tying or ligating the wire with a rubber tie to the bracket itself. Self-ligating braces have a smooth metal door that helps to hold the wire in the bracket and, unlike a rubber tie, allows free movement of teeth along the wire. Ultimately, this results in less discomfort, faster overall treatment, shorter adjustment appointments, less frequent visits to the orthodontist and better oral hygiene. Self-ligating brackets are another way that Hometown Orthodontics delivers the best that orthodontic care has to offer.
Lingual Braces (3M-Incognito)
Unlike conventional braces that are bonded on the front of your teeth, lingual braces or hidden braces are bonded to the back of your teeth. Because they are completely hidden, no one can really tell that you are wearing them – unless of course you tell them! Using CAD/CAM technology, the braces and wires are engineered and manufactured exclusively for your teeth. This means that treatment is more efficient and generally, the overall treatment time is shorter. Lingual braces are also comfortable because they are custom-made to fit the contours of your teeth and since they’re made of gold, they’re also a great choice for patients with nickel allergies.
Dr. Virdee regularly treats patients in Port Credit Mississauga and Greater Sudbury area with lingual braces. So if you really don’t want anyone knowing you’re straightening your teeth – she’s the orthodontist of choice!
At Hometown Orthodontics, we make a commitment to introducing some of the latest, state-of-the art technologies that have sound, scientific backing in treatment effectiveness and safety. Acceledent® is the newest orthodontic device that we are pleased to offer to our patients. Currently, Hometown Orthodontics is the only orthodontic practice in the Greater Sudbury area offering this technology. Acceledent uses SoftPulse TechnologyTM to generate micropulses or tiny vibrations that help remodel bone and accelerate tooth movement. Acceledent can complement conventional braces or Invisalign. The results show that tooth movement is accelerated by 106% during the initial stages of treatment and up to 50% during the later stages of treatment. This means you can be in and out of treatment in no time at all!
How does AcceleDent Work?
AcceleDent is easy to use. All you have to do is insert a mouthpiece around your existing braces or Invisalign aligners and turn on the Activator for 20 minutes per day. Not only does accelerating tooth movement get you to the finish line faster, AcceleDent has also been shown to make your orthodontic journey more comfortable. AcceleDent has been approved for use by Health Canada and the US Food and Drug administration. So sit back, relax, use Acceledent while you’re watching TV, reading a good book or relaxing on the beach and let the gentle vibrations of AcceleDent accelerate your smile and confidence. LIVE. LAUGH. SMILE!
