Maintaining Your Oral Health:

A good dental cleaning is essential to maintaining your oral health.  Even the most conscientious patient cannot reach every deposit of plaque or tartar that accumulates in the mouth with daily brushing and flossing.  We encourage our patients to maintain good oral health by coming in for a twice yearly dental exam and by staying current with the dental cleaning schedule prescribed by your hygienist. If you are diagnosed with gum disease, (which is an infection around the base of the teeth causing the bone around the teeth to dissolve), we will bring you back in either four months for moderate disease or three months for advanced disease to clean below the gums, removing the harmful bacteria.

 

Invisalign

If you’re looking to improve your smile without braces you’ve come to the right place.

Step 1: Visit one of our Whitemud Dental Centre Doctors

During the initial visit, the doctor will evaluate, assess, and discuss the course of treatment with you. She will take bite impressions of your teeth and will send these along with instructions to Invisalign for processing.

Step 2: Invisalign® makes your aligners

Invisalign® uses advanced 3-D computer imaging technology to transform your bite impressions into a custom-made series of clear and removable aligners.

Step 3: You receive your clear aligners in a few weeks.

During your next visit to your orthodontist or dentist, you will receive your first set of clear aligners. Your doctor will most likely give you a few additional sets to wear before your next visit.

Step 4: Wear your aligners.

You’ll wear each set of clear aligners day and night for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. Patients, on average, complete treatment in approximately a year. You’ll visit us at regular intervals to check your progress.

Step 5: You’ve finished treatment!

Congratulations! When you’re finished wearing each clear aligner in the series, your treatment will be complete and you will have straighter teeth and the beautiful smile you deserve.

Please call us  to schedule your free initial consultation. We look forward to hearing from you!
