Why Should I Use a Qualified Provider for Invisalign Treatment?
These days, it seems that just about everyone is offering Invisalign treatment. You might be wondering why you should take the time to go to an orthodontist to get your treatment. After all, if the clear aligners are designed via software, then anyone should do, right?
Nothing could be farther than the truth! It’s true that Invisalign uses software to create the plastic aligners; however, because of this, Invisalign is vulnerable to a principle that affects virtually all software: GIGO, or “garbage in, garbage out.”
The treatment provided by Invisalign is only as good as the data provided by the treating provider.
That’s why you need to go to a highly qualified provider, like Adirondack Orthodontics, for your Invisalign treatment. Only a qualified provider can discuss your chief concerns, conduct the examinations, review the treatment options, and design a treatment plan that fits your needs and lifestyle. The provider has to use his or her orthodontic knowledge and skill to work with Invisalign to design the specific tooth movements. It’s the skill and knowledge of the provider that make the system work. Without them, Invisalign would just be some software and some trays.
The Importance of Experience
However, simply choosing a qualified provider isn’t enough. You need to work with a provider who has plenty of experience with Invisalign. Even though many dentists are advertising Invisalign, many of them don’t have this experience.
Although clear aligner treatment first became widely available around 1999, for the first 15 years or so, there were very few orthodontists opting for this kind of treatment. Orthodontists needed time to learn more about this new technology and perfect their skills. But over the past 5 years or so, there has been an explosion of interest in Invisalign. As a result, while there are many providers offering Invisalign, not all of them have equal experience with it. For your treatment, you want to choose an experienced specialist.
