3 Surprising Facts About Invisalign and Invisalign Teen
November 2, 2018
Invisalign is a clear BPA-free plastic appliance that offers patients an alternative to traditional braces. Your orthodontist takes a digital scan of the teeth which creates a 3D image that’s used to produce a series of trays made from clear plastic material worn by the patient almost all day. Each tray or aligner is configured to adjust the teeth according to a predetermined treatment plan mapped out by the treating orthodontist. Lately you may be hearing more about Invisalign both from the company itself (Align Technology, Inc.) and from professional providers like orthodontists. Yet there are three surprising facts about Invisalign that many don’t yet know:
1) Invisalign can treat most orthodontic cases.
You may have been told that you’re not a good candidate for Invisalign, however more experienced orthodontists can treat even some of the most complex cases with Invisalign. Be sure to talk to an orthodontist that has top Invisalign provider status and experience leveraging Invisalign for different types of treatment.
1)2) You can spend less time at the orthodontist with Invisalign.
When you’re treated with Invisalign it often requires less time with your orthodontist than necessary with traditional braces. There are no adjustments to make, no brackets to re-glue and no broken wires to fix. After the initial appointment, follow-up appointments are usually scheduled every eight to twelve weeks.
1)3) The orthodontist’s experience matters.
As amazing as Invisalign is, it’s just a tool in your orthodontist’s toolbox. It’s the doctor that programs the plastic and makes the smile. You know the old adage that in real estate, it’s LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. Well, in orthodontics (and especially with Invisalign) it’s: EXPERIENCE, EXPERIENCE, EXPERIENCE! Drs. Morrone & Kaye have treated thousands of patients with Invisalign and have attained Diamond status (no other practice in the area comes close!). Don’t trust your smile to just anyone - choose an orthodontist with proven expertise at Morrone & Kaye Orthodontics.
