There are many options available for clear aligners, and there is always something new coming on the market. At DeDomenico Orthodontics, we work hard to keep up-to-date on these and other new treatment options but, when it comes to clear aligners, we haven’t found any product that we would trust with our patients’ teeth except for Invisalign.
The Invisalign Difference
There are several reasons why we believe Invisalign is the best clear aligner option for our patients, which includes:
- Durable. These aligners are twice as durable and 30% stronger than other aligners which means that they won’t lose their shape and potentially misalign teeth. In addition, Invisalign products are less likely to break than other products, which saves our patients time and money while reducing frustration.
- Reliable. Invisalign products have been on the market for many years and we know how well they work. There is no guesswork or “hoping” that these aligners will be effective, which makes it a product we trust.
- High Tech. Many products have you bite into a mold compound and send them to the company to manufacture the clear aligners. The process is inherently flawed because it requires the patient to do their best to get a perfect impression and it doesn’t address other issues. With Invisalign, we use their 3-D mapping system to assure that aligners are designed to perfectly fit your unique smile. And, in addition to mapping your teeth, this system also calculates the exact amount of force needed to move each individual tooth, which is something that molds just can’t tell us.
- Comfortable and Discrete. Invisalign products are made from SmartTrack material so they are comfortable and easy to take on and off, while providing the perfect fit for your teeth.
- Responsive. In addition to addressing teeth that are overcrowded or have gaps, Invisalign has developed products to address more complex issues such as overbites and underbites. These options are not reliably available with any other products on the market.
- Orthodontist Supervised. In our practice, we have worked with patients who achieved poor, and even painful results using other clear alignment options that did not require professional supervision. Orthodontic issues are more complex than simply moving teeth, as they involve the jaw, neck and tongue, and you need to work with someone who understands all of these issues and how to manage them together to achieve beautiful, lasting results.
We know there you have choices when selecting an orthodontist and clear aligner options, and we highly recommend Invisalign over everything else we have studied. In addition, our patients think that we offer a great service.
