Dr. Sperber is a Certified Invisalign® Provider in Whitby, ON!

Consider Invisalign treatment to get the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted — without braces. A complimentary consultation with Dr. Ronald Sperber at our Whitby, ON orthodontic office can determine if Invisalign clear aligners are right for you.

Dr. Sperber is a certified specialist in orthodontics and a Premier Preferred Invisalign Provider, which means you are in expert hands when you visit Whitby Orthodontics for your Invisalign treatment. Unlike a general dentist, Dr. Sperber specializes in the science and art of moving teeth. He has more than 15 years of experience with Invisalign and proven results: hundreds of happy patients with beautifully straight teeth.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign treatment uses a series of virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that allow you to smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign clear aligners are made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to administer Invisalign treatment.

Why would I want Invisalign?

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 also more comfortable than traditional braces, with no metal or wires, which also usually means you spend less time in our Whitby orthodontic office getting adjustments. Invisalign treatment also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.

How does Invisalign work?

Once a thorough examination is completed, Dr. Sperber will explain his findings to you and answer any treatment questions you may have. After Dr. Sperber has made his treatment recommendation, our treatment coordinator will guide you through our flexible payment options and next appointments required. If you would like to proceed with treatment, diagnostic records are needed as the next step and can be done on the same day as your consultation.

You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to their final positions. You'll visit Whitby Orthodontics about once every four to ten weeks, depending on your stage of treatment, to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 18 to 30 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.

When your treatment is completed, Dr. Sperber will provide you with a retainer to wear full time initially, then nightly for a prescribed period of time, and eventually on a limited basis indefinitely. As you age, tooth movement is possible, and wearing a retainer on a regular basis can help reduce the potential for future tooth movement or relapse.
