Have you been told that you are not an Invisalign® candidate?

We hear this frequently in our office. When patients come to our office for a second opinion, it is common for us to hear that they have been told by other dentists or orthodontists that they are not a candidate for this method of treatment. Due to the technological advances within the industry made in the last several years and coupled with the skills possessed by Dr. Patras, MOST of the time, this is not the case. But it is not just the technology you need to think about when selecting your orthodontic provider — it is important to consider the doctor’s experience as well.

It is in your best interest to talk to an orthodontist and not a general dentist about shifting and realigning your teeth. You may wonder, why? An orthodontist has had approximately three additional years of education and has gone through a more rigorous course to become a certified orthodontist. The additional education is centered specifically on jaw structure, teeth, and how both major and minor orthodontic conditions can be corrected with different appliances. If you are interested in realigning your teeth, orthodontists are the experts! It is also important to keep in mind that Invisalign® aligners are a tool utilized by orthodontists the same way a camera is a tool for a photographer or a paintbrush is a tool for an artist. The aesthetic and functional results of your teeth upon completing treatment are dependent on the knowledge possessed by the doctor you select. This is why it is of the utmost importance to choose wisely and avoid unwanted complications that can cost additional time and money.

If another doctor has told you that you have an orthodontic issue that they are not able to correct, Dr. Patras may be able to. She has taken over several cases from general offices and, with a fresh and skillful approach, has successfully treated those patients and helped them achieve the most beautiful results. The best way to find out if you are a candidate is to come in for a complimentary consultation. This free consultation is not billed to your insurance provider, and there is no out-of-pocket expense for your initial orthodontic exam.
