Your Markham and Greater Toronto Orthodontist is Invited to the Invisalign Summit

This past weekend, Dr. Tam attended the annual Invisalign Summit at the Sands Expo and Conference Centre in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Summit is a wonderful opportunity for the most experienced Invisalign orthodontists to share ideas and information that can be implemented in their offices. This in turn results in greater quality results, while reducing treatment times for you, our patients. Dr. Tam was honoured to be invited back for a second consecutive year.

Malocclusions, bad bites, and crooked teeth that were once thought treatable only with braces are now increasingly being corrected with Invisalign. Keep in mind that as with conventional braces, the ability of your orthodontist to straighten your teeth with Invisalign requires careful planning and individualization. However, because Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners, additional knowledge on the way teeth move differently with Invisalign than braces is essential. General dentists and orthodontists can become certified in Invisalign by taking a one-day course. You should feel confident with having treatment at MCO, as Dr. Tam has extensive experience with Invisalign, including treatment on local Markham and Greater Toronto dentists, their family, and even himself!

Many of our teenagers, parents, and adults wish to have straight teeth, but without the embarrassment and discomfort of braces. Dr. Tam and Markham Centre Orthodontics are committed to delivering a "clear" solution to our patients whenever possible. Of note, Dr. Tam was a part of the Invisalign Teen pilot project, a new Invisalign appliance that has allowed more of our teen-aged patients to have a "wireless" treatment. We also know that many parents would love to have straight teeth, but would never think of getting braces. Invisalign has given us the ability to allow our parents to smile widely alongside their children!

Please feel free to contact us for your complimentary, no-obligation consultation. We look forward to meeting your needs to help you achieve that beautiful, straight smile you've always wanted.
