Introducing Invisalign – The clear alternative to metal braces

Invisalign-Toronto-DentistI am happy to announce that we have introduced Invisalign at Cherry Blossom Dentistry. Invisalign straightens your teeth using a custom made, virtually invisible series of aligners made just for you, before getting invisaling we recommend you get a Wisdom Teeth Removal Surgery. The aligners fit right over your teeth and are made of smooth, comfortable plastic. They resemble whitening trays in appearance but that’s where the similarity ends. Each set of aligners incrementally shifts teeth into a desired position using smooth, gentle forces. With invisalign there are no brackets and wires bonded to your teeth and the removable aligners allow for ease of brushing and flossing throughout your treatment. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks and then you simply switch to the next set.

One of the most innovative aspects of Invisalign is that a digitized treatment plan is created using a model of your teeth. You will be able to see what the aligners will be able to achieve during your orthodontic treatment on a computer image before you even commit to start.

We offer complimentary invisalign consultations. I review the entire process, risk, benefits, fees, and show you a set of aligners and before and after case photos.

I am very excited to be an Invisalign provider. I consider it a revolutionary alternative to conventional braces and I am confident in what it can offer to my patients.

Digital X-Rays, Tablet Check-In, TV’s

photo 4Cherry Blossom Dentistry has recently undergone several exciting new upgrades in the last three months.  One of the most important has been introducing digital imaging in place of conventional x-rays with film.  The benefits include a minimum 60% reduction of radiation exposure per film for the patient as well as reduced chemical waste from the processing of film.  Along with this, the entire office has converted to a paperless system, allowing all patient records and treatment to be recorded digitally.

Patients will also enjoy convenient check-in when they arrive with our brand new tablet.  Patients will be able to update personal information, medical and dental history and insurance information with this handy device.  They will also have the option to select automated email confirmations and reminders for appointments, rather than a phone call.  With an easy click in your email, we will know that you are confirmed for your visit.

Lastly, our treatment rooms have new televisions for both patient entertainment during treatment as well as treatment discussion.  I can project x-rays and photos onto the TV to help explain clinical concerns and recommended therapies.  This helps to keep you informed and involved.

We are all excited about these new changes and we are anxious to share them with all of our patients.
