Invisalign and Invisalign Teen in Coquitlam

Coquitlam Family Orthodontics is recognized as a 2010 Preferred Invisalign Provider.


Our office takes a special interest in Invisalign orthodontics.


In fact, especially in our teenage and adult patients that qualify, it is many times our preferred choice of orthodontics treatment due to its increased benefits of being able to remove the invisible Invisalign trays when eating.


Consider Invisalign to get the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted without braces. A consultation with Dr. Couto can determine if Invisalign is right for you.

What is it?

Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners. Invisalign is made with 3-D computer imaging technology, and has been proven effective for certain orthodontic problems.


What are some advantages?

Not only are the aligners not visible, 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 comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And, no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor's office getting adjustments. Invisalign 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 2 to 3 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 the final position Dr. Couto has prescribed. You'll visit our office about once every 6 to 8 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9 to 15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from patient to patient.

Please contact our office at 604-949-0654 for a free Invisalign consultation to see if you or your child is a candidate.
