Harvest Pointe Dental is a dentistry practice where we focus on all your oral health needs. We provide many services to our Edmonton community including general dentistry, cosmetic and orthodontics. Our focus has always been to treat every individual with care and listening to their specific needs. We strive to ensure our patients leave our clinic feeling welcomed, educated on their treatment and pain free.
We see many cases for orthodontic treatment, and now Invisalign is becoming more popular than ever. The idea of wearing clear aligners instead of metal braces is often preferred by many of our patients and it can be a great option for the right case and individual. We are proud gold status providers for Invisalign and have worked with Invisalign for over 10+ years. No more worries of the uncomfortable feeling of dental impressions, and long process of receiving dental treatments. Everything for your Invisalign consultation is digital with the newest technology that makes your visit as comfortable as possible.
Invisalign treatment has many benefits over traditional braces, and if often preferred by patients. We use a ClinCheck software to scan your smile to ensure the Invisalign treatment will shift your teeth to the right location. The 3D images in the software will allow you to visualize and see the shifting of your teeth, and how your final smile will end up looking. This also allows our dentists to make adjustments and customize your treatment. Depending on your case the amount of aligners you will need to wear will vary. Each new set of aligners will be placed in roughly every 6 weeks, and these visits to your dentist at this time will allow us to ensure your treatment plan is going according to plan.
The benefits of clear aligners with Invisalign is that it allows you to enjoy food you often cannot eat with braces. You will not have the discomfort of cleaning food stuck in braces and maintaining your oral health will be a lot easier. The aligners are clear and often people may not even notice you’re wearing them! It is recommended that you wear your trays for 20-22 hours a day, and brush them out at night. However this also may be a disadvantage if your daily activities don’t allow for you to wear them for the recommended time. You will need to remove your trays to drink and eat and should brush your teeth before putting them back in. The beauty involved with Invisalign is that you’re able to see your smile transform every step of the way!
