Richmond Hill Invisalign Before and After - Class 3 Invisalign Treatment

Many will say that Invisalign can only be used for simple treatments.  Others believe that they are purchasing Invisalign as a product rather than purchasing the services of an orthodontist using Invisalign.  The fact is the results of your treatment will vary depending on where you get your Invisalign in Richmond Hill.

Here is a sample of an Invisalign patient with a Class 3 malocclusion.  Elastics and buttons were used.  Total treatment time was just over 1 year.  Treatment completed by Dr. Jason Tam.  Visit for more information about Invisalign cost and to see more Invisalign results.

Toronto Invisalign Results: Open Bite Before and After

Traditionally, open bites are addressed with braces to extrude the anterior teeth, but those patients always experience relapse afterwards since there is nothing to hold the teeth in place.  Many doctors would also consider jaw surgery.

This case was first presented by your Stouffville Invisalign orthodontist, Dr. Jason Tam, at the New York Metro Area Invisalign Expo to about 70 orthodontists.  It has also been selected for publication in the 2014 Invisalign Case Gallery as one of the top treatments in the past 2 years.

Most of this work was completed with intrusion of the posterior teeth so that the regular bite is able to keep the open bite closed afterwards.  Nightly wear of Vivera retainers will continue to help keep the bite closed and the upper fixed retainer was placed to prevent that space from coming back during the day, due to a tongue thrust.  Remember that Invisalign is a technique and your results and method of treatment will differ depending on the experience and skill of your doctor.  For more, visit .

Toronto Invisalign Specialist Speaks to Metro New York Orthodontists

Those seeing Invisalign in Toronto should understand that Invisalign is a technique, rather than a product.  This is why, whenever seeking treatment, price is not really something that can be compared fairly, since your treatment results will differ depending on the doctor you choose.

Last Thursday, Dr. Tam taught a focused group of 8 orthodontists from the New York City area, followed by a full lecture Friday on moving teeth with Invisalign to about 70 doctors.  His primary message was that Invisalign movements are the responsibility of the doctor and that telling patients Invisalign doesn't work is not because Invisalign doesn't work, but rather because the doctor has not learned to feel comfortable using it.

Speaker list:  Dr. Nicozicis, Dr. Tam, and Dr. Kottemann
Other renowned Invisalign speakers included Dr. Jonathan Nicozicis in Princeton, NJ speaking about deep bite and open bites, Dr. Bill Kottemamn from Minneapolis, MN talking about class 2 correction, and famed consultant Rosemary Bray in the staff treatment coordinator session.  Congratulations to Dr. Tam on being invited to speak at one of the most famous areas in North America at the Metro New York City Invisalign Expo!

Toronto Orthodontist Visits Maritimes Invisalign Specialist

Dr. Tam is always interested in seeing the way orthodontic practices are run all over the world.  Recently he was in PEI and visited the Charlottetown office of the largest orthodontic practice in Eastern Canada at docbraces.  Their office is the hard work of Dr. John McManaman, an orthodontist serving New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and PEI.  Thank you to Dr. John for having Nancy show Dr. Tam around the office.

Your Markham Orthodontist also had a chance to speak with Mr. Charney, from King Street Capital, regarding the trend of corporatization of dental practices.  They had some very candid discussion about what this means for private practice and patient care.

Richmond Hill Invisalign Orthodontist in Las Vegas at Work and at Play

Your Stouffville Invisalign Orthodontist believes in an active life in the world of orthodontics, but feels there is a lot that can benefit his patients with input from industries outside of orthodontics.

Recently, he was in Las Vegas to meet with life consultant Kyle Ray, who has gone through the 21st Century Leadership Program.  With a special interest in life direction and perspective, Ray has continually provided Dr. Tam with stimulus to keep challenging himself.

He also sat down with Dr. Alice Chen, a pediatric dentist at Red Rock Kid's Dentistry, pediatric dentist in Summerlin, Las Vegas.  They discussed the ongoing interactions between pediatric dentistry and orthodontics, as well as the use of Invisalign for teenagers as well as adults.  Dr. Tam emphasized the use of Invisalign as a technique rather than as a product.

Dr. Tam was able to arrange a second meeting with Mr. Richard Brodie, the author of Microsoft Word.  He is also the author of the bestselling publications, Getting Past OK: The Self-Help Book for People Who Don't Need Help.  They sat down to again discuss various issues along with Mr. Brodie's friend Nick, an electrical engineer working for the US Government.  Dr. Tam feels it a great privilege to be able to spend time with Mr. Brodie to gain his insights and perspectives.
