Oshawa Invisalign Orthodontist- How to Choose a Doctor Part 4 of 5

In Part 4 of How to Choose an Invisalign Provider in Toronto, we suggest you ask your provider if they have a dedicated Invisalign technician working with them.  At this time, despite the advanced computer algorithms, orthodontic treatment planning using Invisalign still requires excellent communication from the doctor to the technician in Costa Rica, with that technician needing a keen understanding of what the doctor is looking for in planning the movements for the teeth.

The other reason to ask about this is because only those doctors who have performed a certain number of treatments are granted dedicated technicians by Invisalign.  Working together with the same person over the course of hundreds and thousands of treatments is going to obviously produce better simulations.  Of course, the volume of treatments certainly does not speak to the quality of the care provided, but it does give a good indicator that your doctor has at least a base volume of experience.

This is where Toronto Invisalign plans get developed...  lack of personal detail and attention for most treatments.
MCO Orthodontics has created well over 1000+ beautiful smiles using Invisalign and Invisalign Teen.  When our technician changes or is away, we can very much see the difference in the simulation produced.  Of course, with our doctor’s direction, we are still able to help achieve the smile we are looking for our patients.  Our team has been to Costa Rica to meet with our technicians many times and speaks with them regularly to make sure everyone is on the same page.

Our MCO Invisalign team is in regular communication with technicians, doctors, and team leads.

Stay tuned for Part 5, asking how often Invisalign treatment is not successful and requires braces.

Oshawa Invisalign Orthodontist Recognized by Align Technology

If you've been following our blog, you understand that Invisalign is a technique, not a product.  It is like a guitar and a guitarist.  Just having a great guitar doesn't mean the result will be beautiful music.  I takes a skilled guitarist to use that guitar to make the music.

Choosing an Oshawa Invisalign Provider Part 3: Show me your work!

In Part 2 of this series on how to choose the best Invisalign Provider in Toronto for yourself, we looked at the difference between an orthodontist and a dentist.  In Part 3, we will look at figuring out if a doctor has experience with orthodontic treatment with Invisalign.

One of the best ways to figure out if someone has experience with Invisalign is look at a portfolio of their completed treatments.  Now there are privacy issues surrounding sharing all work from every patient, but doctors who have worked with enough happy patients will generally have a large selection of various treatments to show you.  This could be in print, on a website, or in a video.  Beware also that many doctors take treatments from stock photos or from other sites to show as examples.  They are technically not doing anything wrong because they are not saying it is their work, so a clarification asking about this might be in order.

When looking at these Invisalign treatments, see if there is a variety of different types of correction required.  Many cases involving crowding and spacing are simple, but treatments involving correction of Class 2, Class 3, open bites, deep bites, crossbites, and extractions will generally show a greater experience level with the Invisalign appliance.  In other words, showing a greater range of treatments with higher complexity is generally a good way to determine how skilled your doctor is.

For those of you who still think Invisalign is only for simple treatments, here's are two great videos to show you what can be done with Invisalign with an experienced team and cooperative patient.
