Get Your Smile from
A Licensed Orthodontist, Not a General Dentist
Did you know? Orthodontists are dentists, but dentists are not orthodontists. There’s actually a big difference between dentists and orthodontists. That’s because orthodontists receive additional education to become licensed practitioners of orthodontia. They’ve received specific training in the safe and effective movement of teeth, and their practice is 100% dedicated to the art of healthy teeth alignment.
Dentists, while legally allowed to provide orthodontic care, lack the specialized training of orthodontists. Since their practices are usually devoted to many kinds of dental care, they spend less time straightening teeth than orthodontists.
Treatment costs are generally lower at an orthodontist’s office, as well: higher case volume usually lowers costs for all patients , whereas a dentist’s office will need expensive equipment and tools for just a few cases at a time.
Invisalign aligners are a valuable tool for achieving a beautiful smile, but their success largely depends on the expertise of the professional handling them. To ensure the best results for your health and smile, it is advisable to consult a licensed and experienced orthodontist who practices exclusively in orthodontics.
When seeking treatment with it, finding the right Invisalign provider is essential. An experienced orthodontist in a dedicated orthodontic practice can maximize the effectiveness of Invisalign in addressing various cases and helping you achieve a beautiful smile.
