Consider Invisalign treatment to get the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted — without braces. A complimentary consultation with Dr. Chow can determine if Invisalign clear aligners are right for you.
Dr. Chow is an Invisalign Preferred Provider in Surrey, BC, with nearly a decade of experience using Invisalign to give teens and adults beautiful, straight smiles.
What is it?
Invisalign treatment uses a series of virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that allow you to smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign clear aligners are made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to administer Invisalign treatment.
Dr. Chow uses the iTero® Element digital scanner, eliminating the need for traditional impressions, and significantly improving the accuracy of the impression. This allows improved fit accuracy of the aligners and more precise tooth movement.
Why would I want it?
Not only are the aligners virtually invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also more comfortable than traditional braces, with no metal or wires, which also usually means you spend less time at Panorama Orthodontics getting adjustments. Invisalign treatment also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
How does it work?
You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to their final positions. You'll visit our Surrey, BC orthodontic office about once every eight to ten weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 12 to 18 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
