Here is a brief video about Invisalign treatment, an orthodontic alternative to straightening teeth without braces.
Invisalign® is a series of removable appliances called Aligners. Incrementally, the Aligners move your teeth and straighten them. They are removable, but to be effective, the Invisalign Aligners have to be worn for at least 22 hours per day. This discipline required to wear the Aligners is far outweighed by its advantages. They are not easily seen by your friends, family and colleagues, more comfortable to the lips, and cheeks, and can be removed for ease of eating, brushing, and flossing.
Our office is proud to be one of the most experienced Invisalign providers in the Markham and Greater Toronto area and first offices in North America to offer and initiate treatment using the new Invisalign Teen product.
Invisalign is a fantastic treatment, but a firm understanding about the way teeth are moved with Aligners versus braces is extremely important. While many dentists and orthodontists can be Certified Invisalign Providers by taking a one day course, Dr. Tam has attended numerous continuing education courses about Invisalign, including the by-invitation-only Invisalign Summit in Las Vegas. He has been invited to go back again this coming November. We have proudly treated local dentists, their dental staff, and family members with Invisalign.
Dr. Tam works with Invisalign as well as other aesthetic orthodontic options. Invisalign is a great treatment method and gets great results. However, not everyone can be treated with Invisalign. You should see Dr. Tam for an examination to determine if you are a candidate. He will also make you aware of all the aesthetic orthodontic alternatives before choosing to proceed with Invisalign®, such as "clear" brackets, veneers, or crowns. Note that sometimes traditional braces and appliances must be used before or after treatment with Invisalign®.
