Invisalign®An Overview

2018_gold_plus dentist for invisalign stittsville onVillanova Dental Studio in Stittsville, ON offers Invisalign®, a clear braces system to straighten crooked teeth and address mild to moderate malocclusion. Virtually invisible, Invisalign allows patients to discreetly straighten their teeth without the stigma of traditional metal braces. With cosmetic Invisalign aligners, anytime is a good time to get a straighter smile.

The evolution of clear braces has dramatically changed the treatment options and accessibility for patients. One of the first developers of a clear aligners system, Invisalign remains a leading provider of effective orthodontic treatment for teen and adult patients with mild to moderate concerns.

Ottawa dentist Dr. Ami Barakat has years of experience and advanced training in the use of Invisalign for orthodontic care and is an Invisalign Preferred Provider located in Stittsville.

Invisalign can enable adult patients who have previously resisted orthodontics to enjoy the benefits without feeling embarrassed or self conscious about their appearance. When appropriate, Invisalign is also a great option for teens who have cosmetic concerns or malocclusion but don’t want the stigma of metal braces at a sensitive time in their lives.

Invisalign is recommended for:

  • Malocclusion: overbite, underbite, crossbite
  • Mild to moderate bite problems
  • Crooked teeth
  • Adults who have experienced a relapse of tooth movement after previous orthodontic treatment

Invisalign® What to Expect

The first step is a free consultation with Dr. Barakat at Villanova Dental Studio. This will include an oral exam to evaluate your dental health and the opportunity to discuss your cosmetic concerns and goals. During this visit, Dr. Barakat will determine if Invisalign is the solution for you and present a personalized treatment plan. We will discuss all aspects of the plan including expected results, treatment time estimates and cost.

The next step is a visit to get things started. This will include taking digital impressions of your teeth with a hand held device- no messy impression trays- which are used by our CAD/CAM software to plan your custom aligners and determine tooth movement. Dr. Barakat will send this information to the Invisalign lab where your new aligners will be made.

In a couple of weeks, your aligners will be ready and we will meet with you to go over daily use instructions and make a check up schedule. Most patients will be instructed to wear the aligners 20-22 hours a day, removing them as needed for oral hygiene, eating and sports.

It is recommended that you continue to wear a retainer after your treatment is completed to keep your smile looking good and reduce the risk of tooth movement.

Real Patients, Real Results

…The process was simple and AFFORDABLE! When I finally made my appt and visited the Kanata location, the office was beautiful and inviting, the staff was friendly, knowledgeable and very professional. I received a total of 10 trays of Invisilign (for both top and bottom) and after only a few weeks I noticed a drastic change! I just completed Tray 8 and I am beyond excited with my results! I can’t say enough wonderful things about Dr Barakat and his staff! I am just completely thrilled with my decision to do this…even at age 54! I 100% recommend Villanova and Dr Barakat! Go see them! You will not be disappointed! Villanova has given me an even bigger and brighter smile 😀 Thank You! Kayla

Invisalign® FAQs

Is Invisalign painful?

Most patients experience no discomfort wearing the smooth, invisible aligners. There may be mild pressure associated with tooth movement when the aligners are changed, but this is temporary and typically resolved with over the counter pain medication.

Is Invisalign more expensive than metal braces?

While the total cost of your Invisalign treatment depends on the number of aligners needed to achieve the desired outcome, Invisalign is typically no more expensive than the cost of traditional metal braces. In some cases, it may be less costly. Dr. Barakat will provide cost information for all treatment options for your consideration.

Can my child participate in contact sports wearing the aligners?

It is generally recommended that the Invisalign aligners be removed and replaced with a more durable custom fit sports mouthguard during contact sports.

Are the aligners easy to care for?

Yes. Your Invisalign clear aligners can be cleaned when they are removed for daily oral hygiene. Because they are also removable for eating, they can be kept cleaner than other appliances that are not removable. Invisalign offers a convenient care system that Dr. Barakat can discuss with you.

What happens if I lose an aligner?

If an aligner is accidentally lost during treatment, contact us right away so that a replacement can be ordered and we can provide advice on which remaining aligner to use in its place. It is important to always save aligners as they are used in case of an emergency such as a lost aligner!
