Orthodontists vs. Dentists for Invisalign

Dentists or Orthodontists for Invisalign?

Let’s set the record straight about Invisalign practices!

We are blessed to live in an era and country that we have so many choices for every decision that we have to make. But unfortunately, that also means that we can make a lot of wrong decisions. I have witnessed this several times in the last month. In August, I had five patients that are currently undergoing Invisalign treatment in other offices by their general dentists. They came to my practice for second opinions. They all had pretty easy cases and their dentist had suggested that they start Invisalign and they did.

So why were they seeking second opinions? Because after months of treatment, nothing was really changing and in one case, a patient’s teeth looked much worse than they did before treatment started. Of course, to the patient, that meant Invisalign doesn’t really work. Well, nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, in my opinion, Invisalign works faster and better than braces in most cases and some problems in adult dentition can only be addressed by Invisalign.

So I asked these patients that if they need a plastic surgery procedure done, who would they want to go to? Would they choose to go to their family practitioner that has lower prices or their surgeon? Of course, they all said their plastic surgeon! What about delivering a baby? All the internal medicine practitioners have delivered babies during their training, so why bother going to an OBGYN?

The same argument works for dentists and orthodontists. As an orthodontist, you have to become a dentist first and then go to school for three additional years to receive your orthodontic degree. That is what I did in 1987, and since then I have ONLY treated orthodontic patients. I do not do other procedures, no fillings, no crowns or root canals. All my time and expertise is focused in one area, straightening teeth. Doesn’t that mean that I have so much more experience than a general dentist? Also with Invisalign, I had to almost relearn everything again. Braces and Invisalign both work, but in very different ways. In order to learn how to work with Invisalign, I have had to attend countless hours of continuing education, seminars, and workshops.

So I think having options is great, only if we have the knowledge to evaluate our options objectively. Keep in mind that the quickest, easiest and cheapest is usually not the best way to go. The clear choice is to look for experience and not expense.

P.S. INVISALIGN ROCKS!
