Your Certified Invisalign Provider in Ajax, ON!

Consider Invisalign treatment to get the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted — without braces. A consultation with Steiman Smiles Orthodontics in Ajax, ON can determine if Invisalign is right for you.

Dr. Howard Steiman is an Invisalign Premier Preferred Provider. The Premier level indicates a high expertise level with clear aligner orthodontic treatment. Patients who are interested in Invisalign treatment can rely on Dr. Steiman’s vast experience with Invisalign. He has used Invisalign treat a wide variety of cases, including those including extractions, impactions, and jaw surgery.

What is it?

Invisalign treatment uses a series of virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. Invisalign clear aligners are made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective.

Why would I want it?

Not only are the aligners virtually invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also more comfortable than traditional braces with no metal or wires.  The number of treatment appointments at our Ajax office is much less than with traditional braces.

In order to achieve the best Invisalign tray fit and enhance your start-up experience, digital scanning is done as opposed to unpleasant alginate teeth impressions. These scans also allow you to view your virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete. This digital scan is sent to our dedicated Invisalign technician who will create your customized trays to Dr. Steiman’s exact specifications.

How does it work?

You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to their final positions. You'll visit Steiman Smiles Orthodontics about once every eight to 12 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.

Invisalign treatment times are typically the same as braces; however, Dr. Steiman offers accelerated Invisalign with AcceleDent®  which can decrease the treatment time by 30-50%! This new, high tech device not only allows you to progress through your trays faster, but makes the transition from tray to tray much more comfortable.

Is Invisalign right for you?

In our office, any patient is a candidate for Invisalign! However, Invisalign may need to be mixed with short-term braces in more complex cases in order to achieve some movements unable to be completed with Invisalign. This may not necessarily be full braces, but only in small sections pertaining to the specific teeth in question.
