Invisalign® Dentist vs Orthodontist: Does It Matter?
Invisalign® has become the #1 patient-requested way to straighten teeth.
Today, most dentists and orthodontists offer Invisalign® treatment. Does it matter which you use for your treatment?
Let’s find out!
But first, let’s talk a little bit about Invisalign® treatment.
What is Invisalign®?
As we mentioned earlier, Invisalign® is an extremely popular orthodontic treatment. It straightens teeth utilizing a series of clear, progressive aligner trays, which gently and gradually move teeth into their proper position.
What are some of the advantages of Invisalign®?
Here are a few perks our patients appreciate:
- Virtually invisible – the aligners trays are made of a clear polymer that won’t draw attention to your orthodontic treatment.
- Comfortable to wear – the thermal plastic trays are designed to fit your smile. No pokey and irritating metal wires to deal with.
- Removable – You can take out the trays to eat and brush your teeth or temporarily for a special occasion.
But aren’t orthodontists specialists in orthodontic care? Wouldn’t that make them the best choice for Invisalign® treatment?
Invisalign® Dentist vs. Orthodontist: Which one should you choose?
The answer to this question is less about a dentist’s specialty and more about his/her experience.
Invisalign® is unique among orthodontic treatments because unlike traditional braces that must be modified and fitted manually, Invisalign’s® aligner trays are created by their manufacturer.
Digital impressions are taken of your teeth by Dr. Madhavan and sent to the Invisalign® manufacturing team. They create a series of aligners with their proprietary equipment explicitly designed for Invisalign®.
The completed set of aligners are returned to our dental office in Sammamish, WA, and Dr. Madhavan oversees the rest of your treatment with Invisalign® until the desired result is achieved.
Having your dentist rather than an orthodontic specialist handle your Invisalign® treatment offers you some real advantages, such as:
- Your treatment costs less than it would with a specialist
- You save money by not seeing both a general dentist and an orthodontist
- Your treatment is done by a dentist and team who you know and trust
You get the same great result as you would with an orthodontic specialist, without all the extra hassle and expenses!
With Invisalign®, the best results will come from a dentist who is experienced and highly-trained in cosmetic dentistry.
