The Best Way To Straighten Teeth.
Teeth can be straightened with the use of clear aligners or traditional braces.
Since it’s introduction, Invisalign has earned a name for itself as the most advanced clear aligner system in the world. Here at Tomken Dental, we are happy to use Invisalign to provide our patients with the opportunity to discreetly straighten their teeth.
Custom trays are made using intelligent 3D digital scans, and they are fitted in-person to ensure your comfort. Treatment time varies for each case; yours may be completed in as little as 6 months, but you will start to see a difference in just a few weeks as the aligners work to correct your teeth. Your trays are easy to remove and clean; you can continue to enjoy the foods you love and maintain a fresh, clean-mouth feel.

For A Beautiful Smile And A Healthy Lifestyle
A straight and even smile looks phenomenal, but it can also prevent costly dental and medical problems that may arise with crowding or misalignment.
For some, it might be a little hard to believe, but having straight teeth is very important to leading a healthy life. You may feel that the misalignment of your teeth doesn’t matter much; you may feel that since they don’t bother you, so there’s no point in fixing them. But the truth is, teeth need to be in the correct position in order to function correctly and promote overall wellness.
If you struggle with the alignment of your teeth, you’re not alone. Nearly 9 out of 10 people have at least mild crowding or misalignment of their teeth, which can contribute to:
- Chipped front teeth or tooth loss.
- Food getting stuck between teeth.
- Difficulty flossing and cleaning between teeth.
- Increased risk of cavities between teeth.
- Gum disease – which can increase your risk for several systemic health problems such as Heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Arthritis and Increased risk of stroke.
If you are experiencing any of the above conditions, it’s crucial that you schedule an appointment at our Mississauga dental office for a full evaluation of your oral health.
When Is A Good Time To Start?
Maybe you’ve been thinking about straightening your teeth for as long as you can remember. Perhaps you just recently had the recommendation from your dentist, or perhaps you have just discovered that it’s necessary for keeping up with your oral and overall health.
No matter what your situation is, waiting to get started with straightening your teeth will only give you more months or years of dissatisfaction and insecurity about your smile. Not only this; teeth that are out of alignment tend to lead to an increased risk of tooth decay, damage and various health problems. An investment in the alignment of your teeth is an investment in your future.
Most importantly, remember that teeth continue to shift; while you may not experience issues now, it’s likely that you may further down the line as time passes.
Starting your treatment sooner rather than later is crucial; the more movement your teeth require to straighten, the longer you’ll need to undergo treatment. It’s easier, faster and less expensive to straighten teeth before they become severely misaligned.
Worried about what your treatment might cost you? Don’t worry, Invisalign treatment in Mississauga is affordable. Here at Tomken Dental, we think that everyone should have access to the dental care that they need; that’s why we offer comprehensive payment plans to our patients for their treatment.
What Can You Expect Once You Start Your Treatment?
Our mission is to help our patients achieve optimal overall health and a beautiful smile by starting with a good foundation. That means straightening and aligning the teeth so that they are in proper alignment and are functioning correctly. You’re never too old to benefit from straightening your teeth and achieving a beautiful, healthy smile!
Your Treatment Plan
The process begins with intelligent digital scans of your teeth to create your treatment plan. Using Invisalign’s software, we can accurately predict how your teeth will change over time with treatment. We can also show you how your teeth will look after weeks or months of treatment, and you’ll be presented with a representation of what your tooth will likely look like at the end of your treatment. Once your digital plan is finalized, your custom aligners are made using Invisalign’s state-of-the-art printing process.
The First Aligners
Once the aligners arrive, special fasteners are often necessary. These are bonded temporarily to your teeth so that you can easily clip in your aligners, but don’t worry, they’re mostly invisible and come off at the end of treatment.</span
Follow up Appointments
Throughout your treatment, you will receive a new set of aligners every two weeks. Each set of aligners focuses on aligning a different part of the mouth bit by bit until at last, your teeth have been moved to their final and correct position. Visits to the office will be scheduled roughly once every 1-2 months to ensure that the treatment is going as planned.
A Beautiful Solution
We’ve helped hundreds of patients not only in achieving the cosmetic smile they’ve always wanted, but improving their oral health and their overall health as well, giving them the confidence and wellness they need to fully enjoy each day.

Frequently Asked Questions
Invisalign is both more comfortable and more discrete than braces. The clear custom-fit trays are hardly noticeable and most people won’t even realize you’re wearing them. Plus, they can be removed for important presentations or dates! The clear trays are also smooth against the inside of your mouth and don’t pinch or scratch like the brackets from braces. If your trays rub on your gums, they can be easily adjusted. Invisalign trays exert a gentler pressure compared to braces and only shift a few teeth at a time. That makes Invisalign orthodontics far more comfortable than conventional methods.
Invisalign makes changes to your teeth very gradually. Minor changes can be made in a few short weeks with little discomfort, and more complex changes can occur over a longer span of time to ensure you stay as comfortable as possible. There may be some discomfort, but if your Invisalign hurts, let us know.
On average, it takes anywhere from 6 to 12 months for your teeth to move into the correct position with Invisalign. Most people start noticing some movement, however, within the first 6 weeks after getting their first set of aligner trays. The more changes you would like to see, the longer it will take no matter what orthodontic option you choose.
Twice a day, remove your tray and clean it and your teeth before putting it back in. If you take your aligner out at any time, always rinse it before you put it back in, and try not to let it sit in open air when you aren’t wearing it. You may soak your aligners in denture cleaner or Invisalign cleaning crystals and carefully rinse them before putting them back in your mouth. Do not eat or drink with your trays in, and do not use toothpaste to clean your trays. We will provide you with detailed home care instructions when you receive your first trays.
Don’t eat with your aligners in your mouth. If you expose your aligners to the strong chewing forces that your teeth are trained to exert, you can damage or even crack your aligners, plus it’s just messy and not easy to eat with Invisalign in your mouth.
Yes, even when you sleep. They should be worn all day and night, except when eating and drinking. Your clear aligners won’t work if they’re not constantly shifting your teeth over time, which means you’ve gotta wear them!
