Invisalign Orthodontists Passamano Orthodontics CRIn 2012, Dr. James Passamano had the opportunity to meet our Invisalign technician, Edward. At the time, Edward was our main Invisailgn technician.  As our number and complexity of our Invisalign Orthodontics office has grown, so has the need for another technician and hence Gabriella was added to our team. Instead of having a rotating technician, Passamano Orthodontics have two dedicated technicians who have an established relationship using specific treatment preferences for higher difficult tooth movements.

How does the Invisalign manufacture process work?

At Passamano Orthodontics, we use a 100% digital process rather than using impression molding. Our patients teeth are 3-D digitally scanned and sent to Costa Rica.  A team of 3-D model technicians create working teeth models for Edward and Gabriella to modify tooth movements.  Drs. Passamano go back and forth through Invisalign Orthodontic simulation software to allow predictable tooth movements.  Once approved, Invisalign Orthodontic trays are manufactured and sent to our office.
