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
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.
