When choosing an Invisalign provider, it can often be confusing who to pick. Patients can choose an orthodontist, a general dentist or a Preferred, Premier, Premier Elite or Super Elite provider. How do you know who will treat your case best and what the difference between these providers is? It is always best to have more than one consultation when deciding between providers. Invisalign is a decision that will change more than just your smile, so find a provider you trust so your relationship with them will create the best situation for you during your treatment.
Occlusion can be described as the way your teeth bite together. Not only is correcting the alignment of your teeth (straightening) with Invisalign important, but correcting your molar relationship is just as important. When malocclusion (misalignment) occurs it can have expensive and damaging effects throughout your entire mouth. These can include but are not limited to hypersensitivity, mobility, abfractions, excessive wear, temporomandibular (TMJ) pain, and even tooth fracture. The above mentioned conditions can cost thousands of dollars to repair if not treated proactively.
When deciding if orthodontics is right for you, cost becomes a large determining factor, especially for someone on a budget.
