Markham Centre Orthodontics: Your Markham Orthodontist and Richmond Hill Braces at Work and At Play

New features available for Class 2 Toronto Invisalign Correction in Canada

It does not happen often, but Align's next new feature is one that will be released in Canada before it is released anywhere else.  Your Toronto Invisalign orthodontist will provide more details as they become available.

As many orthodontic cases require "class 2 correction", Invisalign has developed a new feature that will allow doctors to try this feature in lieu of the use of elastic for class 2 correction.  The early indication are that it will act to reposition the mandible anteriorly, likely similar to a MARA appliance.  For doctors who have had trouble correcting larger class 2 malocclusions with Invisalign, this may be a useful tool.

For many years MCO Orthodontics has been providing world-class Invisalign in Toronto in the 905 regions of York and Durham.   Patients have often sent requests for us to be more accessible to those in Toronto.  Last week, we saw patients at our new Toronto Invisalign Office across from OCAD with several happy patients beginning treatment in our new facility, and a few of our patients who had made the trek to one of our other offices, happily being seen in our clinic that is now much more convenient for them.

York Region Orthodontists Meet in Florida

One of the most important factors in choosing an orthodontist in Markham is experience.  The experiences should have a couple a components that do not simply factor in the number years in practice, but that include the number of treatments per year (this can vary greatly), and the desire to continue to change and progress with new technology and patient trends.

Markham and Newmarket Orthodontist Meeting
Recently, Dr. Jason Tam and Dr. Mitch Miller from Newmarket met at the W Hotel Fort Lauderdale during a time which would normally be reserved for holidays and family time.  Both share a great passion for continuous improvement, spending time discussing treatment philosophies, treatment techniques, customer service, and staff training.  Undoubtedly, this commitment to their patients and practices shines through, resulting in beautiful smiles and memorable experiences!

Choosing your Invisalign Dentist or Orthodontist in Toronto- Part 5 Do You Need Metal Braces?

In Part 5 of Choosing the Best Oshawa Invisalign Orthodontist, we look at suggesting potential patients ask how often metal braces are required to finish Invisalign treatment.  There are a few reasons for this.

Many Invisalign providers do not actually do braces.  They have taken an Invisalign certification course for a weekend and may not be orthodontists.  General dentists provide braces as well but not nearly as many as provide Invisalign.  This will give you a decent indication of how experienced the doctor is with orthodontics.  Having an understanding of braces is an advantage for the doctor when planning Invisalign treatment and being able to help you achieve your smile if the Invisalign treatment does not run on track, or if you feel you are struggling with wearing the aligners.

One of the biggest factors here is that there are still some movements that will work better with braces than Invisalign, although not many.  It is important that the doctor have this as a part of their “arsenal” to help you achieve the exact results you are looking for.  Common issues that might require braces might be severely tipped molars or extreme rotations that might move faster with braces.  In these situations, the treatment should still be completed 90% with Invisalign and about 10% with braces.  Be cautious if there is a doctor who is regularly finishing treatments with braces after Invisalign.

Metal braces or Invisalign
Almost everyone can get Invisalign in Whitby.  Some might require 10% of the  work done with braces.
Knowing that your doctor has experience with metal braces is certainly a good thing, although it does not always translate into an ability to perform treatments with Invisalign.  When all else is equal, an orthodontist is going to likely have a greater understanding of how to move teeth, and what the final results should look like from the perspective of health and aesthetics.

Hopefully this 5 part series has been helpful in helping you ask the right questions before you choose your Invisalign provider.  Remember that Invisalign is a technique, not a product.  Price should only be a small factor because the results will be different depending on the doctor you choose.  For more information, please visit the most comprehensive Invisalign site around for Toronto Invisalign.  Good luck with your treatment and we’d be happy to hear about how it goes!
