Invisalign is a popular treatment option for patients with dental misalignments. If you have a slight overbite, crooked teeth, or any other similar dental issue, you can benefit from the procedure. Invisalign is popular because it is convenient, discreet, and effective. At Peters Dental, we offer expert dentist services and honest advice. Whether you want to get new aligners or a 2nd opinion for Invisalign, our dentist can help.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a treatment involving a series of customized aligner trays. These trays move your teeth over the course of several months until they’re in the desired position. The aligners are made from a clear plastic material, making them discreet compared to traditional metal braces.
The treatment lasts for around 12 months on average, though the duration depends mostly on the current condition of the patient’s teeth.
Getting your teeth straightened involves time and expense. It is a good idea to get a 2nd opinion before you spend your time and money on the procedure.
Why Is A Second Opinion Important?
Invisalign is an excellent treatment, but it isn’t for everyone. Some patients require full metal braces to correct their alignment issues. Most dentists offer straightforward advice and will help you understand the difference between the two options. Getting a 2nd opinion for Invisalign from us allows you to double-check whether the information you have is accurate. Here’s a look at why a second opinion is essential:
- You can ask questions your dentist hasn’t provided clear answers to.
- It is easier to check whether your dentist has your best interests at heart.
- You can double-check whether Invisalign is the right treatment option for you.
- Our dentist might notice things your current expert missed.
Most reliable and well-established dentists won’t be offended if you get a second opinion. They will even encourage it and welcome any feedback the second dentist provides.
A second opinion consultation is relatively straightforward and doesn’t take much time unless you have many questions. Our dentist reads your past dental records and studies the x-rays. They then conduct a thorough examination of your teeth, which includes a visual inspection and can include getting new x-rays. Once we have a good understanding of the condition of your teeth and the extent of the alignment required, we will provide our detailed recommendations.
Patients can use this opportunity to ask more questions about the treatment. Our dentist will either agree with your dentist’s recommendations or will offer an alternative and provide reasons for their opinion. You can study all of the facts involved and make a decision accordingly.
We believe in complete honesty and truthfulness with our clients. You can trust our advice and know that our dentist will always have the patient’s best interest at heart. Once the second consultation is done, you can go back to your original dentist and compare notes or switch dentists if needed.
