Why Choose an Orthodontist for Invisalign?
Orthodontists specifically study the science of teeth straightening with a full understanding of oral-facial harmony and function, and go through additional years of board-certified education in order to ensure maximum understanding of all the science involved in straightening teeth. This level of specialization allows orthodontists to have a more thorough understanding of teeth and jaws in a way that other forms of dentistry do not study.
In addition, orthodontists can provide:
- Feedback/Guidance – Invisalign is an outstanding treatment. But it is not right for everyone. Some individuals may benefit in the short or long term from metal braces, ceramic braces, and other types of tooth and jaw treatments, especially if they have severe tooth crowding, bruxism, and other related dental issues. Orthodontists are trained to provide better recommendations, and ensure that you’re receiving the ideal smile treatment for your mouth, and help you maximize the benefit of your Invisalign or braces treatment.
- Handling Challenges – If your teeth are not adjusting properly, orthodontists are able to provide alternative strategies to help you handle setbacks, and make sure that you are going to have the straighter, healthier smile that you want.
- Next Steps – Orthodontists are equipped to help you with any additional steps you may need, such as fitting you with your retainer or checking to ensure that your teeth will be able to remain in their current final position.
- Most Importantly – It is the benefit of taking advantage of orthodontist specialists and their full understanding of how your final bite will relate to all the supporting muscles/ligaments/jaw joint/air way/alignment in order to prevent any future unwanted problems.
The field of orthodontics is one of the most specialized and scientifically researched and examine in all of dental medicine, and it helps to work with a trained orthodontist so that your smile is exactly as you envisioned, and that you are able to maintain that smile for years to come.
