When opting for Invisalign, you want a service that is worthwhile of the money spent. For the Invisalign process to be successful, you will need a dental or orthodontic practice that can carry out the Invisalign process with great success. So when deciding upon using Invisalign, you need to also find a qualified and experienced provider of Invisalign.
Invisalign is supplied through dentists or orthodontic dentists, who all have a great number of years of experience and qualifications. A dentist Invisalign provider has trained for a number of years at University in the field of dentistry, but may have little experience when it comes to orthodontic procedures, such as Invisalign. If you are opting for a dentist to provide Invisalign, look out for highly qualified dentists who have a number of certificates under their belt, including Invisalign training courses. Dentists often take a short Invisalign course, which enables them to carry out this procedure; however, the more training in this field the better, so look out for dentists who have extensive training.
Experts often recommend seeing an orthodontic dentist for Invisalign; this is simply because they already have extensive knowledge upon the straightening process due to their specialist field. With this choice, it is more likely to be more expensive, adding a few extra costs to the Invisalign process. However, an orthodontic dentist is more likely to have more experience with teeth straightening due to spending years studying dentistry and then orthodontics.
Although, this may help you make the choice between dentist and orthodontic dentist - how do you still find a good Invisalign provider, whether it be dentist or orthodontic dentist? Well, the best way is to do some snooping. Ask how many full cases they have completed - this will give you an idea on how experienced they are. You can as well find out about the dentist's rating by Invisalign on the Invisalign website, which rates providers by how many cases they have fully completed.
Also look out for well established practices and practitioners, who will have rather more experience that a newly established dentist. Research how long the practice has been around and the period of time your dentist has been working. Secondly, look out for practices that encourage up to date training for all their staff - this should be noted on their website - as it will tell you how competent they are with the latest techniques in dentistry.
