Invisalign Invisible Braces in Halifax & Clear Braces Halifax, NS

If you are looking to alter the alignment of your teeth but the thought of braces is holding you back from taking steps to correct them, there are other options!

The office of Halifax dentist Dr. Daniel Tam can help. We offer a revolutionary new way of altering the appearance of your mouth without the need of metal wire or braces - Invisalign Invisible Braces.

Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners that gradually shift your teeth into the desired alignment. Unlike braces, the plastic aligners are not bonded and can be removed at any time. This means that you can easily remove them for brushing, flossing, cleaning, or to clean them. Once you’re finished, you’re able to put them back in yourself without the help of your dentist in Halifax.

Another feature of Invisalign is that the aligners are clear. This is because they are made of a high-grade plastic material which allows the transparent aligners to show the features of your teeth underneath. This allows you to retain much of the natural aesthetic of your mouth when speaking or chewing.

During your consultation, your dentist in Halifax will examine your teeth and go over your goals. If you’re a suitable candidate for Invisalign, we will take impressions of your teeth which will be used to create your custom aligners. The number of aligners that you will need to wear depends on your individual circumstance. Overall, treatment time will typically last approximately one year. You will also have to return to our office every six weeks to pick up new aligners as each set of aligners is customized for different stages in the process.

To ensure that the aligners work effectively, you will have to wear each set of aligners for at least 21 hours per day, for two weeks at a time. You can remove the aligners when eating, brushing, and flossing, but they should be worn the rest of the time. While this may initially seem like a lot of time, it is important to have the aligners stay in contact with your teeth to effectively shift them into place.
