Invisalign is the Digital Choice for Orthodontics in the 21st century
Braces were the Analogue answer to orthodontics for 100 years. It’s time for a change. Digital orthodontics is so far ahead in so many ways that it must be embraced for efficiency, comfort, aesthetics and life style. Invisalign is the Digital tool to take advantage of the these advantages.
I will always have some braces in my practice to use in unique situations; however, almost every orthodontic treatment can and will be treated more efficiently and faster with Invisalign. Also, Invisalign is more comfortable than braces and looks a lot better.
The benefit of having a certified orthodontist do the Invisalign comes down to training and experience.
Although a general dentist can treat orthodontic problems with Invisalign, without proper training the general dentist may miss diagnostic information that can only be learned with years of training. Often the general dentist is not even aware that they have missed anything.
Another issue is that some general dentists delegate the Invisalign care to the hygienist who has even less training in orthodontics.
An orthodontic specialist will ensure that the patient is receiving the best level of orthodontic care. Often the fee will be the same or less than the general dentist would charge. Hopefully, the general dentist will concentrate on delivering the highest level of dental care to their patient. If an orthodontic problem is present, it is the duty of the general dentist to ensure that the patient receives orthodontic care of the highest level as well, regardless of who delivers it.
