Invisalign Success Cases

Invisalign for a Working Professional This patient had very flared teeth and was initially advised to do complete full metal braces.  She did not want the metal braces as she travelled out of town alot for work and didn’t think she would be able to tolerate them very well. She decided to try the Invisalign treatment and you can see that the results were amazing.  She is extremely happy with the final results and has a new found confidence about her. See the results of this patient’s invisalign treatment for yourself in the following before and after pictures. Note that the treatment occured between November 2011 and March 2013 – just 16 months!

Teen Invisalign Success Case

The following testimonial came from a Nanaimo teen who began orthodontic and bite correction treatment with Dr. Mahara at age 13.  This teen’s adult teeth came in crooked and tilted, which not only created a smile problem, but more seriously it also generated an uneven bite that led to the early symptoms for TMD, a jaw disorder characterized by soreness in the jaw, popping and locking jaw and headaches related to jaw pain. “Two years ago, like many people, I was stuck with crooked teeth.

My teeth were coming out in bad angles and, I even had pain in my jaw from the mess of it all. Smiling was always a hesitation, I couldn’t smile for more than a quick second for fear that people would see my messed up teeth. When I first started my braces I was bit nervous. I didn’t know how some simple wires could turn my teeth the right way around. Well it didn’t happen over night, but as time went on I could start to see the changes. I didn’t mind having braces after seeing the good it did. I kept my teeth clean and got new wires regularly.

After two years passed, I had a set of amazing straight and tight-knit teeth! The day I got my braces off, I couldn’t stop smiling! I had the best smile and loved showing it off. I smile whenever I want now, having my great smile really helped in my confidence. Although braces weren’t my most favorite thing, I’ll always appreciate having them. Making my smile from bad to amazing took time but it was all worth it. A great smile can go a long way.”
