What are Invisalign Braces / Clear Aligners?
Finding a Dentist for Invisalign in Collingwood is a great option for those looking to improve the appearance and function of their smile! Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that is completed to help straighten teeth using a series of clear ‘mouthguard style’ aligners.
Invisalign is the original clear aligner company that has many years of experience over its competition and is considered to be the best clear aligner option on the market. Invisalign mandates that any dentist providing Invisalign treatment be Certified, specifically by Invisalign. Great news – our dentists at Collingwood Family Dental are all Invisalign certified!
Invisalign treatment options are available for adolescents, teenagers, adults, and even early seniors! Treatment options range from minor crowding to the severe overlapping of teeth. Some Invisalign treatments last only a few months, while more complicated cases can take multiple years.
When are Invisalign Clear Aligners Recommended?
Invisalign treatment has a wide range of benefits and can typically provide the same results as traditional wired braces. Invisalign Clear Aligners are not only used for Cosmetic Dentistry purposes, but to help improve jaw function, bite alignment, and overall oral health.

How Does the Invisalign Process Work?
Invisalign treatment starts with a consultation with our dentist at Collingwood Family Dental. The dentist will complete an oral examination and ask you about your oral health and cosmetic goals. During this consultation, our dentists will be able to answer any questions you may have about the process, treatment plans, and financial options.
After performing an examination, our dentists will conduct a series of photos using the Invisalign App. These photos allow our dentists to discuss with Invisalign’s Orthodontists about which clinical application of Invisalign is best suited for your situation. Invisalign’s team will send back an after treatment ‘rendering’, which allows you to see what your smile may look like after treatment!
Once these results are received and you have viewed your future smile, you have the opportunity to:
1. Accept treatment and get started
2. Make adjustments to the treatment plan and ask for another assessment
3. Decline Invisalign treatment altogether
If you decide to move ahead with the proposed treatment, our team will send away your impressions to have your first set of Invisalign trays custom made! We also have the option to make adjustments to the treatment plan and ask Invisalign for another rendering. You always have the option of passing as well. There’s no pressure to move forward with the treatment if you don’t love the look of your potential Invisalign smile!
Over the course of Invisalign treatment, you will typically receive a new set of trays every 1-2 weeks. To achieve the best results, it’s recommended that you wear your Invisalign trays 20-22 hours per day. Our team will provide you with instructions on how to clean and maintain your trays between visits. Our dentists are always available to help answer any questions you may have during the process.
