Recently, our very own Dr. Williams appeared on Breakfast Television to discuss South Surrey Smiles’ wonderful Invisalign treatment options for patients. With help from one of our current patients, Michael, Dr. Williams gave a brief explanation of the amazing capabilities of Invisalign when it comes to straightening teeth for a healthier smile. Unlike traditional braces with wires and brackets that are cemented to the teeth, Invisalign provides patients a much more comfortable and flexible option for teeth straightening. As mentioned by Dr. Williams on the broadcast, Invisalign offer numerous oral health benefits beyond correcting the position of crooked and misaligned teeth.
Since they can be removed and replaced so easily, Invisalign allows patients to brush and floss their teeth regularly, without having to worry about cleaning in hard to reach places as is the case with traditional braces. Invisalign treatment is more than just straightening teeth. According to Dr. Williams, patients receive a very sophisticated diagnosis and treatment plan that is specifically tailored to their oral health needs with Invisalign. Specific bite problems concerning the structure of the entire mouth can be addressed with Invisalign treatments from South Surrey Smiles. Dr. Williams describes Michael’s treatment as an example of a case where Invisalign is used to correct jaw relationship issues as well as dental crowding. With the convenience and sophistication of Invisalign treatments, Michael will get the care he needs in less time than if he had traditional braces, and with fewer required visits to the orthodontist’s office. This will allow him to travel while in treatment.
Michael describes his Invisalign treatments as easy and generally convenient, which is a plus for anyone thinking about having their teeth straightened. Whether you’re interested in maintaining your oral health, or you are looking to improve the overall appearance of your smile, Invisalign can be the perfect option for you. At South Surrey Smiles, we are extremely dedicated to our patient’s comfort and satisfaction. We will work with you to help determine which orthodontic care options will be ideally suited for your needs.
