What is Invisalign & Why Dr. Abraham?
Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten teeth without braces using a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth, without metal or wires. Have you been told your smile is too complex for aligners? Dr. Abraham’s training and experience (and being the only Platinum Plus Provider serving these areas) allow families in Leamington ON, Essex County ON and all of Chatham-Kent ON to now have Invisalign aligners as a true alternative to braces.
What is the cost of Invisalign?
Abraham Orthodontics is the most affordable way for you and your family to have the smile you deserve with Invisalign. There is no cost difference compared to braces at Abraham Orthodontics, even though traditionally aligners have a premium charge of $1000-$2000.00!
How does Invisalign work?
Dr. Abraham uses 3D computer imaging technology to digitally create the perfect smile for you or your child! A series of custom-made, clear “aligners” are produced to express this movement, step-by-step. Each “aligner” moves teeth incrementally and is worn for about one to two weeks, then is replaced by the next in the series at home until the final position is achieved. Therefore, visits to our office is usually every 3 months and treatment lasts six to twenty-four months, depending on your smile.

What are the primary benefits of Invisalign?
First, Invisalign is clear. You can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.
Second it is removable, but worn 22 hours/day. Unlike braces, you can eat and drink what you want during treatment. You can also brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene.
Third, it is comfortable. There are no metal brackets or wires as with braces to cause mouth irritation, and no metal or wires means you spend less time in the doctor’s chair getting adjustments.
Finally, it allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan before you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
What are aligners made of?
Aligners are made of clear, strong medical grade plastic that is virtually invisible when worn.

Is this a new way to straighten teeth?
Previously, orthodontists have used removable appliances for limited treatment. Today, with the application of computer technology and Dr. Abraham’s specialty training and commitment to excel with aligners, most cases can be treated with aligners at Abraham Orthodontics!
Do doctors need special training in order to use Invisalign?
Other providers may provide Invisalign for very mild cases. Dr. Abraham is a specialist trained to provide Invisalign’s aligners for all types of cases!
How does Invisalign effectively move teeth?
First, like brackets and arch wires are to braces, Invisalign aligners move teeth through controlled force on the teeth. Thus, the difference is that Invisalign not only controls forces, but also controls the timing of the force. At each stage, only certain teeth are allowed to move, and these movements are determined by the orthodontic treatment plan for that particular stage. Therefore, this results in an efficient force delivery system.
