Invisalign® in New Westminster, BC 

Is a crooked smile preventing you from smiling confidently or enjoying social activities with family and friends? Misaligned teeth not only appear unattractive but also cause a number of dental problems if left uncorrected.

Our team of dentists near you will evaluate your teeth before creating a treatment plan for Invisalign® clear braces. Unlike standard metal braces which are visible, Invisalign® braces are virtually unnoticeable when you speak, eat or smile.

Problems Caused by Misaligned Teeth

A loss of self-esteem is only one of the problems caused by a crooked set of teeth. A misaligned dental arch may result in:

Periodontal Disease: It’s hard to clean between crooked teeth that are too close together, and decay may set in.

Excess Wear and Tear: Crooked teeth often lead to excessive wear on surrounding teeth, gums, and jaw muscles.

Speech Problems: Crooked teeth can result in difficulty in articulating certain sounds and make it hard to speak clearly.

Chewing Issues: A misaligned dental arch can interfere with the way the upper and lower dental arches meet. You may find it difficult to bite and chew, and this may result in digestive problems.

Our dentists offer Invisalign® braces in New Westminster, BC, for patients looking to straighten their teeth, correct bite problems, and transform their smiles.

Invisalign® Works to Rectify Several Problems

Invisalign® is not only an aesthetic alternative to traditional braces; it works efficiently to resolve several orthodontic issues. Invisalign® near you can effectively correct the following problems:

  • Underbite (when the lower jaw protrudes over the upper one)
  • Overbite (when the upper jaw protrudes over the lower one)
  • Crossbite (when a few upper teeth overlap the lower ones)
  • Malocclusion (bite misalignment)
  • Gapped teeth

After a detailed assessment of the oral cavity including a 3-D intraoral scan and necessary records to plan your case, our dentists in New Westminster, BC, will provide the first set of Invisalign® aligners, personalized to your unique needs. Our dentists at Asante Dental Centre will check carefully for fit and make adjustments wherever needed. Typical Invisalign® orthodontic treatment may take between 6 and 22 months to straighten your smile, depending on the degree of correction required.
