If you or your teen is looking for an Okotoks Orthodontist
to help to straighten teeth, consider Dr. Dustin Wilson in Cornerstone Dental Clinic for Invisalign treatment. Invisalign is clear, removable orthodontic treatment, virtually invisible, so that practically no one will know that you’re having your teeth straightened.
Dr. Dustin Wilson and his team at Cornerstone Dental are pleased to be able to offer Okotoks patients the option of new Orthodontist’s clear, invisible braces. Invisalign is considered to be the virtually invisible method of straightening teeth without the need for conventional wire braces.
Traditional teeth straightening appliances such as wire braces have a reputation for being uncomfortable and unattractive. Food can get trapped in the brackets and wires and not only are they hard to keep clean, but braces can also cause plaque to accumulate and the tooth decay process to speed up.
Dr. Dustin Wilson at Cornerstone Dental is the Okotoks Orthodontist who wants to change the way you look at teeth straightening. Although traditional orthodontics, using wire and brackets, are still recommended in some complex orthodontic cases, there is now an alternative that answers all of these challenges! And it is available to you.
If you or your teen need orthodontic treatment today, you might find that Invisalign is the solution. Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners, making it easy to continue brushing and flossing your teeth the way you normally do, and they’re hardly noticeable to those around you. With Invisalign, you don’t have to stop eating all the foods you love. Invisalign’s comfortable and clear aligners gradually begin to move your teeth into the proper position and allow you up to 2 hours per day to remove them.
You may have many questions about Invisalign, such as how to get started or how to learn more about the treatment plan. That’s perfectly natural. Your Okotoks Orthodontist at Cornerstone Dental would be happy to answer all of your questions through a consultation in the office. That’s really the first step. To set up a consultation, call 403-995-1800. During the consultation Cornerstone’s Invisalign dentist will discuss your case in detail to determine if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign. You can even write your questions down before your visit to make sure that you get answers to them all.
Dr. Wilson will take x-rays, pictures and impressions of your teeth, which will be used to create 3-D digital images. From these images, his team will map out a treatment plan, which includes the proposed movement of your teeth. This will enable the Orthodontist and you to see what your teeth look like at each stage of treatment, not just the end.
Invisalign treatment varies by the case, but typically treatment takes about none months for adults and perhaps longer for teens. For best results, Invisalign aligners must be worn for 20 - 22 hours per day throughout the entire treatment.
