Are you considering Invisalign to correct teeth misalignment or an overbite but a little lost on how to begin the process? The first and most important step is selecting the right dentist. We will walk you through what to look for when choosing your Invisalign dentist.
The first step is to know what type of doctor to search for to administer your Invisalign. Invisalign is a treatment that is available for general and cosmetic dentists as well as Orthodontists. However, Orthodontists are the most qualified to administer Invisalign treatments. Orthodontists have additional training in the science of moving teeth. They are dedicated to the art of healthy teeth alignment. Selecting an experienced and qualified dentist is crucial to your Invisalign treatment. After all, Invisalign doesn’t straighten your teeth, your dentist does.
There are a few other advantages to selecting an Orthodontist for your Invisalign treatment. Invisalign is the only orthodontic treatment that general dentists are able to perform. Consequently, they have less options to offer you if your unique case calls for additional aligning treatments. Orthodontists also have more experience correcting misaligned teeth. Sometimes Invisalign treatment does not go as planned and your dentist may need to make alterations mid-treatment. An orthodontist would be best suited to spot and correct any unexpected concerns or issues. Treatment costs for Orthodontists are also generally lower than at a general dentist since they are administered in higher volume at the Orthodontist office.

Avoid mail order aligner brands as well. It is best to receive Invisalign treatment from a certified professional. There have been many complaints against these companies. Improper treatment can cause permanent damage to your teeth. Take the time to select the right dentist for your Invisalign treatment.
