We often get asked about the different options for orthodontic treatment. While direct-to-home aligners such as "Smile Direct Club" may seem convenient and affordable, choosing clear aligners such as Invisalign, through a dental office with a dentist's oversight, offers many benefits for your oral health and treatment success.
Firstly, when you choose clear aligners from a dental office, you work with a professional who understands the science behind orthodontics. We check your teeth, gums, and jawbone to assess your oral health and ensure you are a good candidate for clear aligner treatment. We oversee your treatment from start to finish, monitor your progress, and make any necessary adjustments along the way. This personal attention is not possible with direct-to-home aligners, which can lead to poor results, bite issues and even tooth loss.
Another advantage of choosing clear aligners through a dental office is precision and accuracy. Direct-to-home aligners often rely on self-impressions and DIY techniques, which can result in incorrect measurements and damage to your teeth and gums. In contrast, clear aligners from a dental office are custom-designed using digital scans and x-rays, ensuring a perfect fit for your teeth and jaw. In-office treatment also allows the use of “attachments” which are clear bondings that helps the aligner move your teeth with more precision.
Choosing Invisalign through a dental office can give you peace of mind knowing that you are receiving high-quality care and support during your treatment journey. We are here to answer any questions or concerns you may have and provide ongoing guidance and instruction to ensure you use your clear aligners correctly and get the best results possible.
