    2. Invisalign Insertion... the first day!





    3. Placement of Invisalign attachments

    Excellent video! Very informative.
    Experience is not something you can buy, but it is something you will pay dearly for.




  3. That is exactly what I wanted to do for future invisalign patients. I know I was looking through a lot of videos to keep me motivated. Another suggestion, would be to add HD progress updates on participating patients.

    Excellent camera too, video quality looks very professional.
    Starting refinements in 2 weeks. :party:

    Thanks for the feedback and suggestions. These videos have been a work in progress for over half a year. We had to take impressions, wait for aligners, insert them, wait until the attachments visit, and then wait for IPR required.

    I wish we could have had great HD videos of each visit. Logistically, it was very difficult and costly to get the camera crew in so many times as is. To have them film at every visit presented too many challenges. It is something we may consider doing with an HD video recorder on a more amateur scale if there is a patient who is willing :).

    I would of loved to see those before my first appointment! So far, getting the impressions done was probably my worst part of the experience, but I also had no idea what to expect so seeing this would have possibly made me less anxious. I had metal/mirror type things in my mouth to take photographs as well as the impressions, this was unpleasant as it felt like it was slicing my cheek, but the experience got a lot better from then!

    Thanks Phantom, Mike, and, liccledevil for the compliments. A lot of people are interested in Invisalign treatment, but don't know what it involves. We just launched a new site at Toronto Invisalign | Straighten your teeth with clear, removable braces from Toronto's Invisalign Premier Provider discussing what a potential Invisalign patient should know before starting treatment. You'll find before and afters, criteria for selecting a doctor, as well as the videos. Hopefully it helps members and guests of Bracesreview.com make informed choices, and set them up for the best Invisalign experience possible :).

    The videos looks awesome. I wish I had a good dental insurance plan to cover it.

    Here's a video of the iOC Invisalign Scanner. Align Technology bought out Cadent Incorporated in early 2011. In some cases, the scanning may take slightly longer than taking an impression, but the accuracy and time-savings in steps/shipping are serious advantages. Enjoy!

    Thanks Farrah! When done properly, there should be no pain, discomfort, or damage to the teeth. I usually describe it as a vibration between the teeth, let our patients know they will feel me going down towards the gums, and not to worry about that feeling. I've done this procedure thousands and thousands of times now, so it's quite a good experience for our patients :).

    Good luck with your IPR!

    I enjoyed the videos. Thought the impression was interesting - I didn't have one done. They just digitally scanned my teeth there at the doctor's office.

    The scanner has only been used in the last couple of years now and there are still the majority of providers using impressions due to the cost of the machine. It is definitely the gold standard for Invisalign records right now.
