When many people think of straightening their teeth, they think of traditional dental braces that are metal, require frequent tightening, and may have to be worn for years. However, for those who don’t require traditional metal braces–and most cases do not–Invisalign is an ideal choice as it gives you all the benefits of traditional braces with none of the negatives. Dr. Parsyeh is one of the top Toronto Invisalign doctors.
What Is Invisalign
Invisalign is a set of clear aligners that are worn on the teeth as directed by Dr. Parsyeh. The aligners are often compared to the essex (clear) retainers worn after braces. The difference, of course, is that while retainers maintain the teeth, Invisalign actually straightens the teeth gradually.
Invisalign aligners (also known as trays) are nearly invisible to others, so you won’t have to worry about them getting in the way of your life. They can be taken out while you eat, unlike traditional braces which are on all the time. This means you can continue to enjoy foods such as nuts, chewy foods, candy etc. while undergoing treatment. These are usually offlimits to those who wear metal braces.
The trays are replaced frequently to gradually straighten your teeth over a set period of months. After your last set of trays, you’ll simply wear an essex retainer as directed to maintain your beautiful new smile.
Does Invisalign Hurt?
One of the biggest problems associated with metal braces is that they tend to hurt whenever they are tightened or otherwise adjusted. With Invisalign, pain is minimal as there are no braces to tighten. Dr. Parsyeh and his team will do everything possible to keep your treatment as pain-free as possible.
How Can I Afford Invisalign?
Like many dental services, Invisalign is not inexpensive. However, it is made affordable with the many financing options that are out there. These allow you to spread the cost of Invisalign out over many months, thus making it a very affordable option. Ask Dr. Parsyeh and his team about the options that exist for you for affordable Toronto Invisalign.
