Surrey Invisalign Dentist in Surrey BC
We dedicate our time and energy towards providing you with
excellence in orthodontic care. We believe that excellence in orthodontic care involves informed patients. Our strength goes beyond the presence of any one individual. It is our team effort that maximize your comfort and the quality of your orthodontic results. Though an orthodontist can enhance a smile at any age, there is an optimal time period to begin treatment. To provide the best possible treatment at the most ideal age, both the Canadian Association of Orthodontists and the American Association of Orthodontists recommends that the initial orthodontic evaluation should occur at the first sign of orthodontic problems or no later than age 7. At this early age, orthodontic treatment may not be necessary, but vigilant examination can anticipate the most advantageous time to begin treatment. Align Technology, the company that invented Invisalign, has bestowed Dr. Larry Lu with the certified provider designation. The Invisalign System is a series of clear orthodontic appliances, called aligners, which allow you to straighten your teeth without having to wear traditional braces. Invisalign is an esthetic orthodontic appliance that corrects malocclusion using a series of custom-made, nearly invisible, removable aligners. Each set of custom-made aligners is worn for about two weeks and moves the teeth in small steps to the desired final position. All of the benefits of traditional braces while being almost invisible.

Straight teeth help an individual to effectively bite, chew and speak. Straight teeth contribute to healthy teeth and gums. Properly aligned teeth and jaws may alleviate or prevent physical health problems.
It contributes to self-esteem, self-confidence and self-image - important qualities at every age. A pleasing appearance is a vital component of self-confidence. A person's self-esteem often improves as orthodontic treatment brings teeth, lips and face into proportion. In this way, orthodontic treatment can benefit social and career success, as well as improve a person’s general attitude toward life.
You may be surprised to learn that straight teeth are less prone to decay, gum disease and injury. Straight teeth collect less plaque, a colourless, sticky film composed of bacteria, food and saliva. Decay results when the bacteria in plaque feed on carbohydrates (sugar and starch) we eat or drink to produce acids that can cause cavities. Plaque can also increase the risk for periodontal (gum) disease. When teeth are properly aligned, and less plaque collects, these risks decline. And when teeth are properly aligned it is easier to keep teeth clean. As for injuries to teeth, protruding upper teeth are more likely to be broken in an accident. When repositioned and aligned with other teeth, these teeth are most probably going to be at a decreased risk for fracture.
By age 7, most children have a mix of baby (primary) and adult (permanent) teeth. Some common orthodontic problems seen in children can be traced to genetics, that is they may be inherited from their parents. Children may experience dental crowding, too much space between teeth, protruding teeth, and extra or missing teeth and sometimes jaw growth problems. Other malocclusions (literally, “bad bite”) are acquired. In other words, they develop over time. They can be caused by thumb or finger-sucking, mouth breathing, dental disease, abnormal swallowing, poor dental hygiene, the early or late loss of baby teeth, accidents or poor nutrition. Trauma and other medical conditions such as birth defects may contribute to orthodontic problems as well. Sometimes an inherited malocclusion is complicated by an acquired problem. Whatever the cause, the orthodontist is usually able to treat most conditions successfully.
Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten teeth using a series of custom made nearly undetectable aligners. It has been proven to be effective in both clinical research and in practices such as ours nationwide.

Orthodontics consists of diagnosing and treating malocclusions or "bad bites" such as teeth crowding, spaces between teeth, overbites and under bites. These conditions may be inherited or caused by trauma, habits such as nail biting or thumb sucking, and drifting of loose teeth due to gum disease. Misaligned teeth contribute to poor dental health because they are hard to clean. Difficulty in cleaning can lead to decay and gum disease, chewing problems and jaw, head and neck aches. Teeth that are in proper alignment are more attractive, younger looking and healthier. There are several ways in which teeth can be guided into proper position within an efficient treatment time to create a pleasing facial balance. The good news is that teeth can be moved at any age! This has helped many of our patients by building their self-confidence and helping them with their social and professional success.

Dental implants are titanium "roots" carefully placed in positions that were once occupied by your natural teeth to support replacements that look and feel like your teeth. The dental implant procedure is performed at our state of the art office in Surrey on Fraser Hwy.

Dental implants can be an excellent way to solve each of the above situations and are the next best thing to a 3rd set of teeth. Proper planning, implementation and maintenance are the three keys to successful dental implant treatments.
