Custom Invisalign Teeth Aligners in Ottawa

For a modern solution to straightening your teeth in Ottawa, Invisalign aligners are the way to go for patients of all ages, according to Dr. Ian M. Milne. He has the experience to coordinate treatment objectives and tooth movements using the Invisalign system to obtain the correct results efficiently. He has travelled to the Invisalign laboratory to ensure that they follow his instructions and specifications for all of his patients. Many practitioners expect Invisalign technicians to diagnose and decide treatment directions for their patients - this is not what happens with Dr. Ian M. Milne. He directs the technicians as to the proper direction and sequence of individual tooth movements.

How It Works
Invisalign aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you simply wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements Dr. Ian M. Milne plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You simply pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete and you achieve the confident smile that you've always wanted. The best part about the whole process is that most people won't even know you're straightening your teeth.

What Is Invisalign and How Does It Work?

The virtually invisible aligners, which are made of a thermoplastic material uniquely developed for the Invisalign treatment plan, look similar to teeth-whitening trays. A series of Invisalign aligners are custom-made for you, to move your teeth in the sequence determined by Dr. Ian M. Milne.

How Will It Affect My Life?

Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. No one may even notice that you're wearing them, making Invisalign a seamless fit with your lifestyle. Invisalign aligners are removable. For the best results and a timely outcome, aligners should be worn for 20 to 22 hours per day. However, unlike with braces, you have the flexibility to remove your aligners to eat and drink what you want during treatment. And you can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would, for fresh breath and good oral hygiene. There are no metal brackets or wires that could cause irritation to your mouth, an advantage over traditional braces. Plus, since your office visits during treatment don't involve metal or wire adjustments, you'll likely spend less time in the doctor's chair. Invisalign allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you start so you can see how your straightened teeth will look when your treatment is complete. Instead of imagining how much better it can be, you'll be able to see it for yourself.

Why should I feel confident about Invisalign?

More than 1.3 million patients worldwide have been treated with Invisalign. The number of Invisalign smiles grows daily.

How Do I Take Care of My Aligners?

The best way to clean your aligners is to use the Invisalign cleaning kit. As a secondary method, however, your aligners can also be cleaned by brushing them and rinsing them in lukewarm water.

What Happens After Treatment Is Completed?

This varies from person to person and depends on the outcome of the treatment. Some patients might need a positioner, or conventional retainer. Other patients might need a clear plastic retainer similar to the ones Invisalign makes, such as Align Technology's Vivera Retainer, which is worn at night. Discuss this with Dr. Ian M. Milne. Every patient is different, and outcomes vary.

What if I've had braces, or other special dental conditions?

Doctors are treating a significant number of patients with a combination of braces and Invisalign. Consult Dr. Ian M. Milne to determine the best treatment for you.

What Are the Costs and Payment Options?

We know cost is a big question for anyone considering orthodontic work. In most cases, Invisalign treatment is comparable to the cost of traditional braces. However, as with other medical treatments, Dr. Ian M. Milne can determine the cost, based on your specific needs. Other factors may include your treatment goals, the difficulty of your case, how long you are in treatment, where you live, your orthodontic insurance coverage, and additional factors determined by Dr. Ian M. Milne.
