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

Toronto Invisalign Orthodontist Selected for Media Training and Informational Videos

Recently, your Scarborough Invisalign Orthodontist was in Denver to receive media training for upcoming local Toronto news spots.  Dr. Tam trained with Mark Bernheimer, a 16 year veteran reporter for CNN, to help deliver succinct and accurate information with regards to Toronto Invisalign and Oshawa Invisalign Teen questions.  He was chosen because of his experience in working with Invisalign treatment and Invisalign patients, as well as his ability to produce excellent results with this clear aligner technique.

These questions include:

1.  What would you tell a parent of a teenager who is concerned that their child will not be compliant with aligners?

2.  What would you tell a parent of a teenager who has been told that they are not a candidate for Invisalign treatment?

3.  What types of questions would you suggest a parent or patient ask with regards to financial considerations for Invisalign?

We'll address these questions in near future!

Toronto Invisalign Hands-On Training by MCO Orthodontist and Team

As many of our readers know, Invisalign results will differ depending on the doctor and team you work with.  Recently, MCO Orthodontics, your Invisalign specialist in Toronto, taught some general dentists as a part of a pilot project, sanctioned by Align Technology, in a hands-on demonstration.  These dentists wanted to learn more about how to direct patients during their initial insertion, how to perform interproximal reduction (IPR), tips on taking records/scans, and were shown two different techniques for attachment placement.

There was an emphasis that the ability to produce an excellent Invisalign result is highly dependent on the planning of the case by the doctor, and not the responsibility of Align technicians.

Oshawa Orthodontists Teach Invisalign to Oshawa Dentists

Invisalign treatment planning and diagnosis is extremely important in the success of a patient's Invisalign treatment.  Align Technology has recognized this and recently started a Pilot Project in 5 sites in North America.  MCO Orthodontics was chosen as one such site due to our expertise and teaching experience for Invisalign in Oshawa.

Dr. Jason Tam, Dr. Mariam Haroun, and Jenny Wong put on a 3-hour presentation for some Oshawa dentists who have entered into a mentorship program with MCO Orthodontics.  The idea is that there are treatments that can be done well in the hands of general dentists, but there has to be a good support system and the ability to refer to an Invisalign orthodontic specialist as well.  These dentists will benefit from the expertise of our doctors and ultimately result in improved patient outcomes.

Remember that Invisalign is a technique, not a product, so the results you end up with will depend on the doctor and office you choose.  Our experience at MCO Orthodontics is one of the reasons why so many patients in the Toronto area begin Invisalign treatment with us every year!

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.
