Clear Aligners

Clear aligners are an effective alternative to traditional braces, because they use a system of clear, removable trays used to straighten teeth. Each aligner is custom-made to fit over your teeth and is designed to gradually move teeth into their proper position. Using clear aligners for orthodontic treatment is not for everyone. The best way to find out if clear aligners are the right option for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Andreea Birsila

Friendly and easy to use, the clear aligners are used as an alternative to traditional braces to align and straighten teeth in order to improve a person’s bite and tooth position, while also working to improve overall dental health. They are commonly used to correct underbites, as well as malocclusions, overbites, open bites, deep bites, cross bites, crooked teeth, and various other flaws of the teeth and jaw.

Just like braces, clear aligners use gradual force to control tooth movement, but without any metal wires or brackets. The aligners are made with a strong plastic material that has been fabricated to fit your mouth. As treatment progresses you switch aligners. Each aligner is a little different, so your teeth move a little more with every change.

Invisalign® teeth straightening for teens and adults.

Invisalign is an orthodontic device that uses transparent, incremental aligners to adjust teeth as an effective alternative to traditional wire braces. These virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners allow you to smile more during treatment as well as after.

Invisalign Treatable cases

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 free from intrusive metals and wires, making them more comfortable to wear than traditional braces and which also means that less time needs to be spent coming in for adjustments.

How does it work?

Invisalign clear aligners are made with 3D computer imaging technology and have been proven effective in treating tooth alignment issues. The aligners are made with a strong plastic material that has been fabricated to fit your mouth. Each aligner is custom-made to fit over your teeth and is designed to gradually move teeth into their proper position. The treatment progresses a little more when you switch aligners.

You wear each set of aligners for about 7-10 days, removing them only to brush, floss, eat, and drink anything other than water. As you advance your aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, day by day, week by week — until they have straightened to their designated final positions.

We will see you about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages about 9 to 15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from person to person.

They are commonly used to correct underbites, as well as malocclusions, overbites, open bites, deep bites, cross bites, crooked teeth, and various other flaws of the teeth and jaw.

However, not all patients are suitable for Invisalign treatment. Only a trained and licensed Invisalign provider can determine if you will be a suitable candidate.

We, at Bonavista Dental Centre Bonavista Dental Centre, are experienced with both Invisalign and dental braces. Therefore, at the orthodontic consultation, we can give you options and will let you know which treatment can provide you with the best result.
