Is Invisalign right for me?
December 4, 2010
InvisalignTM is the ""clear alternative"" to braces, and patients have become more and more interested in this option for improving the look of your smile over traditional braces. Your orthodontist can assess whether or not you're a candidate for Invisalign. Our orthodontic patients at First Choice Dental love the way Invisalign works. Instead of traditional wire and bracket braces, we use a series of clear aligners to straighten teeth. This option has become popular among adults and teens. Since the aligners are clear, they're nearly invisible, which many people prefer. You can take them out for easy brushing and flossing, or for a special occasion.
When selecting an orthodontist to help you improve the look of your smile with Invisalign, make sure you look for expertise and experience. You should select a licensed, experience orthodontist, as opposed to a general dentist, who is supremely expert in providing orthodontic treatment. While some general dentists are licensed to provide Invisalign, it's not their specialty, nor is it the sole focus of their practice. When undergoing Invisalign treatment, health-conscious patients want to know that they're being cared for by someone who focuses solely on orthodontic treatment. Also, select an orthodontist with sufficient experience in Invisalign specifically. We have two orthodontists, including Dr. Sarah Santos who's a Premier Invisalign Provider, among the top 5% of providers in the state of Wisconsin. This designation is based on case volume, which means that Dr. Santos is among the most experienced Invisalign providers in the state of Wisconsin.
