Top Toronto Invisalign Orthodonitst visits Costa Rica Invisalign Treat Facility for 2nd time

MCO Invisalign orthodontist, Dr. Tam, has always aimed to be the best Invisalign dentist in Toronto.  In order to do this, he has traveled extensively to meet top doctors all over the world, visited the Invisalign Treat Facility, and attended numerous Invisalign seminars.  MCO is also one of the few offices in Canada using the Invisalign scanner to replace impressions!

One of the key aspects of proper Invisalign treatment is the planning of the ClinCheck.  While many potential patients consider Invisalign to be the same no matter where you go, this is not the case.  It is up to the doctor and their experience to determine when teeth move, how they move, and how much they move.  When simulations are created, they are done so by technicians who do not have training with orthodontic tooth movement.  Anything can happen in a video, but it doesn't mean it will happen inside the mouth. The above photo is only one section of the facility where the techs create simulations.  As you can imagine, there is a lot of variability!

In early November, Dr. Tam went to meet his team leader Alex, his current tech Auxi, and their back-up tech Roberto in Costa Rica.  This was his 2nd visit in 2 years.  He went to discuss his preferences for treatment, and to ensure that there is a smooth transition whenever Auxi is away.  Alex sported his TeamMCO t-shirt and it was fantastic to see them, as they are truly a part of our Invisalign team at MCO.  Special thanks to Alex and Auxi for the gift they got for Dr. Tam's son, Isaac!

Remember that Invisalign is a technique, not a product, and seek out the most experienced Invisalign doctors to ensure you have proper care.
