Richmond Orthodontic Centre is now Orthologie Richmond! We welcome you to visit us at our convenient new location in Richmond.
Orthologie Orthodontics in Vancouver is a leading Invisalign® provider for adults, children, and teens. We create custom treatment plans for each patient to ensure the best results.
Our clear aligners are an effective treatment option for most orthodontic misalignments - whether or not you’ve had orthodontic treatment in the past.
A gentle early treatment option, our Invisalign® First solutions are designed specifically with small smiles in mind and are suitable for patients as young as seven years old.
The teen years are a common time to receive treatment - and our removable, nearly invisible clear aligners are a very popular choice for on-the-go teens.
Regular teeth brushing and flossing are highly recommended. We also suggest using a fluoride rinse. Last but not least, don’t skip your regular dental cleanings - you should schedule an appointment every 6 months.
Brush with a soft toothbrush and use mild toothpaste to clean your aligners each time you remove them. For excessive stains, soak the aligners for five minutes in water mixed with 50% hydrogen peroxide. Remember to keep the case nearby so you have a clean place to put them when not in use.
Ideally, you should wear your aligners for 22 hours a day. You can take them out when eating, drinking, brushing, practicing sports and instruments, and flossing (or other important events).
Since you’re an Invisalign® patient, you have access to Orthodologie Monitoring. It’s a downloadable app that allows you to send weekly selfies to us for progress monitoring, from wherever you are!
Some people may have a slight lisp for a day or two while wearing their clear aligners for the first time. However, any speech issues go away over time once you’re used to wearing them.
