Invisalign is just a tool that orthodontists use to move teeth, much like a hammer is a tool used to build a house. The point is, the hammer doesn’t build the house; the person using the hammer builds the house. The final product is only as good as the professional using the tool. Invisalign alone doesn’t do anything, it does what the orthodontist tells it to do. Invisalign is a great tool and with proper diagnosis and planning, almost any orthodontic issue can be corrected using Invisalign. We can use Invisalign to close spaces, solve crowding, improve overbite, and correct underbite, among other applications. On top of that, Invisalign is a great tool for the treatment of kids and teens, too, not just adults.
Invisalign has several benefits over braces. There are virtually no emergencies with Invisalign treatment: you never have to worry about a wire poking your cheek or a bracket coming unglued from a tooth. You can remove Invisalign to brush and floss your teeth so you don’t have to modify your hygiene routine. Also, you can have longer intervals of times between appointments, which is convenient for our busy lifestyles.
If you are considering Invisalign, make sure you pick the right provider. Dr. Hodge has three extra years of Orthodontics training in addition to attending and graduating from Dental School. During those additional three years of training, she learned only about moving teeth with braces and Invisalign. In addition, she completed an Aligner Intensive Fellowship that focused only on moving teeth with aligners, so you’ll be in great hands with us! And remember that carpenter, if you hired a carpenter to build your house, wouldn’t you like to know that he had extensive training in building houses and had built many houses before he ever got to yours?
