Despite what you may read on the internet or what you may even be told by a dental professional, not every patient can be treated effectively with Invisalign. There is a plethora of mis-information and dis-information on the internet that can be dangerous for patients seeking information about Invisalign.
The goal of orthodontic treatment should not only be the alignment of the teeth, but correction of the bite, and Invisalign cannot always achieve these goals and traditional braces may be necessary. To determine if you are truly a candidate for Invisalign, you can contact our orthodontic office for a complimentary consultation. Orthodontic treatment should not be like shopping for toys or clothes. You should trust your smile and bite only to a certified orthodontist who has an additional three years of training following dental school and who knows how to effectively move teeth with controlled forces in three dimensions. Invisalign offers weekend courses to dentists who are then able to use the system and who do not understand the intricacies and true nature of tooth movement. You wouldn’t trust your family doctor to do heart surgery, you should trust your smile, alignment of your teeth and bite only to a certified orthodontist.
If you have questions about Invisalign, or would like to find out if you are a candidate for Invisalign treatment, please give Orthodontics at Don Mills a call at 416-447-1515 for a complimentary consultation. We are team of committed professionals who look forward to meeting with you, listening to your concerns and discussing your options with you.
