Invisalign offers many benefits for those who desire the benefits of braces. With so many dentists now doing Invisalign, how do you know who to choose?
Like a general dentist, an orthodontic specialist must first receive their doctorate in general dentistry. After this, they must complete an additional two to three years of graduate training in orthodontics. As a specialist, the orthodontist limits their time exclusively to orthodontic treatments. When you choose to go to a dentist for Invisalign, you are able to get the treatment itself, but you don’t get the additional education and experience that comes with choosing an orthodontist. The patient benefits from the additional training the orthodontist has acquired.
Invisalign consists of clear aligners that cover teeth like molds. The aligners resemble at-home teeth whitening trays. Your orthodontist customizes the treatment plan specifically to you before the aligners are made. Each set is worn for about two weeks. Aligners are only removed to eat, drink, brush and floss. With every upgrade, teeth get a little straighter. Every couple of weeks the patient has a new set of precise aligners. Each set of aligners is shaped differently to account for the changes in a patient’s teeth and the goals of each stage of treatment.
For the best treatment results, choosing an experienced doctor can make all the difference. By selecting a Premier Invisalign Provider, you are choosing a provider who is ranked in the top 10 percentile of all Invisalign providers. This ranking is based on the experience of the doctors and the number of patients they have successfully treated.
