Invisalign Clear Aligners vs. Metal Braces
Invisalign® aligners are made from clear plastic. There are no visible wires or brackets to see when you smile, laugh, or talk. This can make you feel more confident in social situations.
Removable at Mealtime
Regular braces are fixed to your teeth, meaning certain foods can damage them. Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can eat and drink whatever you want, whenever you want.
Better Oral Hygiene
Brushing away food that gets stuck in braces can be difficult, which can lead to decay. Since Invisalign uses removable aligners, brushing and flossing are more effective.
Patients with braces have frequent dental appointments with an orthodontist for wire tightening. This can be inconvenient and costly. There is no tightening involved with Invisalign, and you can expect fewer appointments throughout your treatment.
The brackets and wires in metal braces can irritate gum tissue and the inside of your cheeks. Invisalign aligners may feel snug at first, but once you get used to them, you may forget they are even on your teeth.
How Long Will
Depending on your misalignment and the number of aligners you need, full Invisalign treatment could take 12 months or longer, similar to traditional braces. Very mild misalignment could be corrected in as little as six months.
Orthodontic Treatment That Fits Your Schedule Contact Us Today to Get Started
Because Invisalign takes time to achieve results, it's important to visit your dentist several times during treatment to check your progress. At Norris Dental, we want to make your regular checkups as easy as wearing your aligners. We have flexible hours and offer late and weekend appointments so that your treatment works with your busy schedule, not the other way around.

Candidacy for Invisalign Treatment
Degree of Misalignment
These clear aligners are designed to address cases of mild to moderate misalignment. If your teeth are more seriously misaligned, you will likely need treatment with traditional orthodontics. We can connect you with an orthodontist in Vancouver if we determine that Invisalign isn't the best choice for you.
Commitment to Results
The majority of your treatment will take place without direct supervision from a dentist or orthodontist, so it's important that you closely follow your treatment plan to achieve the best results. You'll have to wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day, only removing them for eating and cleaning.
What Does Invisalign Cost?
An investment in a balanced, healthy-looking smile is worth every penny.
The final treatment cost will depend on the severity of your misalignment and the number of aligners in your plan. Invisalign is comparable cost-wise to regular braces.
Many insurance policies will contribute to the cost of Invisalign. Talk to our knowledgeable staff to discuss costs, potential coverage, and other aspects of treatment.

Will My Teeth Stay
Once treatment is finished, your smile will remain balanced with the use of a retainer, which should be worn at night. In many cases, you can simply continue to wear the final aligner in the series as a retainer. If needed, we can also create a custom retainer for you.
