What to Look for in an Invisalign Dentist

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.

Should I go to an Orthodontist or General Dentist for my Invisalign?

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.

What to look for in an Invisalign Dentist:

Here is a checklist to go through to find the best dentist for your Invisalign treatment.

  • Proper certification. Does the dentist you are considering have the proper experience and education? This information should be readily available on their website.
  • Specialization. Does the dentist specialize in Invisalign treatment? The more experience the dentist has with this specific type of aligners, the better.
  • Read reviews. Read reviews from previous patients to get a good idea of what the dentist represents and what other patient experiences have been like. You can usually find these on a Google My Business page or on their practice website.
  • Request a consultation. If you are favoring a dentist to perform your Invisalign treatment, request a virtual or in-person consultation. The best way to get to know the dentist and for the dentist to understand your unique case is by contacting them.
  • Ask about additional costs. It is also important to understand all the costs that are included in your Invisalign treatment at a certain practice. Check the dentist’s website or contact the office to inquire about costs.
