At Ridge Meadows Orthodontics in Maple Ridge Invisalign® treatments allow you to straighten your teeth without wires and brackets, using clear, removable aligners that are customized just for you.
The Invisalign System combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with the 100-year-old science of orthodontics.
Invisalign aligners are designed to move your teeth in small increments to the desired final position prescribed by your orthodontist. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan.
Your first step is to visit our office for an evaluation, to determine if Invisalign is a good option for you.
Then, after sending precise treatment instructions, Invisalign uses advanced computer technology to translate these instructions in a sequence of finely calibrated aligners — as few as 12 or as many as 48.
These aligners are worn for about two weeks each, and are taken out only to eat, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will gradually move – week by week, until the final alignment prescribed is attained. Then you'll be smiling like never before!

Invisalign is not intended for children, and is not necessarily appropriate for all adults. Only an orthodontist can determine if this treatment is an effective option for you.
To ensure the best possible Invisalign results, only an orthodontist, like Dr. Couto, who has been trained and certified by Align Technology can diagnose and treat using Invisalign.
Dr. Couto has been treating orthodontic patients using Invisalign for many years. She has helped hundreds of patients, both teens and adults, to benefit from more confident and more beautiful smiles.
Dr. Couto helps patients achieve more beautiful smiles with minimal discomfort during treatment, and loves watching as their confidence grows as a result.
It's always a rewarding experience. One of Dr. Couto's favorite parts of her job is to see her patients' excitement as they see their treatment progressing.
She is deeply honoured to have contributed to the improved lives of her patients.
