Hi Dr. Kamel,
I was wondering about Invisalign for gaps between my front two teeth and want to know if Invisalign can help. I have heard that Invisalign works on crooked teeth, but does Invisalign for gaps?
Invisalign braces are great for closing gaps, fixing overbites, and straightening crooked teeth. I customize every Invisalign plan based on your specific smile needs and frequently use Invisalign to fix gaps between front teeth like yours.
Metal Braces Vs Invisalign
Invisalign can straighten your smile just as well and has several advantages over metal braces. And you won’t have to wear brackets, wires, or endure inconvenient (and often painful) adjustment appointments. Invisalign uses removable aligners to apply mild pressure to your teeth in specific points, triggering movement in the right direction.
You wear the aligners for about two weeks before switching them out with the next set of trays. After a few sets, you will start to see results. To save time, you’ll take three sets of trays home with you after each quick check-up.
Do Invisalign Braces Really Work?
Absolutely. Invisalign has helped straighten thousands of teeth in Ottawa. And because Invisalign is completely clear, most people never realize they are wearing braces.
You can see how well Invisalign can work for you by scheduling a free consultation. I can take a virtual scan of your teeth and use 3D planning software to address specific concerns, like the gap between your front teeth.
How Does Invisalign Move Teeth?
Invisalign aligners use mild pressure to gently move your teeth into the right location. You’ll wear each set of removable trays for two weeks and then switch them out with the next one. Instead of moving your teeth in my office, you move your teeth at home. And after a couple of months, you’ll see a significant improvement in your smile.
How Well Does Invisalign Work?
I recommend Invisalign braces for most of my patients. It’s certainly what I would want for myself. Invisalign works just as fast as traditional braces, but they are much more comfortable and easy to care for. My Invisalign patients usually have better oral hygiene and home care than people that wear metal braces because of how simple the process is.
Clear or Metal Braces – Which Is Faster?
The convenience of Invisalign means more people are willing to follow the treatment specifications, so we see great results in very little time. I also offer Acceledent in my office, which can cut your Invisalign treatment time in half.
