Dr. Ben Fong - Ottawa Invisalign Dentist

Dr. Ben Fong, a 1983 graduate of the University of Toronto Dental School, started Herongate Dental Clinic as a family and cosmetic dental clinic in Ottawa south. In 1996 he realized orthodontics was a crucial part the cosmetic dentistry, and he started to use conventional braces for the orthodontic treatment he offered in his Ottawa clinic. In 2003, Dr. Fong implemented Invisalign, a new alternative method of orthodontics to his general practice. It was well received by his patients, as compared to conventional braces, since Invisalign is virtually “invisible”, comfortable, easy maintenance, less appointments, and because it is removable, the patient could eat whatever they like. Through the years, his practice has grown significantly and the demand for orthodontics in Dr. Fong’s practice increased significantly as more adults chose the Invisalign treatment to straighten their teeth. In 2013 the clinic was completely revamped to a new location nearby to the original office.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign corrects overcrowding, overbites and mild to moderate spacing problems with teeth. Invisalign— unlike conventional braces— is preferred by patients because the aligners are virtually invisible. The aligner can even be removed when eating, drinking, brushing teeth or flossing. Invisalign’s discreet teeth-straightening option has minimal impact on a patient’s lifestyle, while still achieving the same results as braces. Invisalign aligners are made from medical grade polyurethane resin (plastic). There are no visible brackets or metal hardware on the teeth. This means there are no sharp metal pieces that can irritate your cheeks or gums.

Invisalign can work for any age. Regular invisalign is designed for patients with permanent teeth, while invisalign teen is designed for teenagers that do not have fully developed teeth yet. Choosing Invisalign vs braces means you will make fewer visits to your dentist and have fewer adjustments made.

While the cost of Invisalign can be more expensive than braces, Dr. Ben Fong strives to offer comparative rates. During your free consultation, Dr. Fong will determine if Invisalign is right for you. He makes sure clients have the whole picture before starting this journey. Invisalign is not just about having a nice smile. Correcting crowded teeth and poor bites have a major benefit to your oral health as well as your overall health. Straightening teeth can improve and facilitate oral care such as brushing and flossing. This will help prevent cavities in the long run. Improving poor bites will help with chewing food properly and lastly, improving your jaw and overbite will help improve your air way and decrease the chance of future jaw problems such as TMJ dysfunction.

Dr. Fong has changed the lives of many people with the help of Invisalign. By visiting Dr. Fong’s Youtube Page, you will be able to see the testimonials of his patients expressing their experiences and joy of using Invisalign.
