Invisalign in Bowmanville

Clarington Dental Centre is proud to offer Invisalign®—a revolutionary option to straighten your teeth outside of metal, ceramic, or clear braces. Invisalign® involves the use of clear aligners to achieve similar effects. 

You may want to visit a dentist in Clarington, Durham, and Whitby to start the Invisalign treatment, and you probably want to investigate your options between braces and aligners. Perhaps you have general questions as well since this decision affects your overall quality of life. We’ve got the answers below!

Until recently, orthodontic treatment was focused mainly on children or teenagers and the preferred method was metal train-track braces. Today, about 20% of orthodontic patients are between 20 and 60 years of age, which is why Invisalign is becoming so popular as most adults find metallic braces on their teeth to be a bit of an eyesore. For Invisalign treatment near you, you can rest assured that Clarington Dental Centre has got you covered.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign aligners are almost invisible. Metal-free Invisalign aligners are made from BPA-free clear plastic and are custom made for your teeth. Our dentist in Clarington, Durham, and Whitby will use x-rays, pictures, and impressions to create a precise image of your teeth and configure your aligner trays accordingly. 

Every two weeks, you will receive a new set of aligners that slowly move your teeth towards their ideal positions. As opposed to metal braces that are adhered to your teeth, the Invisalign process allows you to take the clear aligners off whenever you want. 

However, for optimal results, it’s best to wear clear aligners for 20–22 hours every day. As it is a new piece of hardware in your mouth, you may encounter some pain and may need to spend a few days adjusting to speaking.
