I am going to get my teeth straightened and I am doing research on how to do it best in the least expensive way. I am looking at Invisalign and wondering it is something that I can buy online. If not Invisalign, is there something similar that I can get online? Thanks Meisha
Meisha – Invisalign is only available through dentists who have been trained and certified to provide patients with the aligners.
Orthodontics requires the planning, placement, and care of a skilled dental professional. There are some important factors that you won’t get if you buy braces or aligners online. Before you receive orthodontic treatment, x-rays and diagnostic studies need to be taken of your mouth and teeth. Based on the diagnostics, a dentist comes up with a treatment plan for you. Impressions of your mouth are taken to customize the braces or aligners for you. The aligners or braces you receive will need to be regularly checked or adjusted by your dentist or orthodontist. Who will fill these necessary roles if you buy braces online?
When you receive your aligner or braces from a qualified dentist, you and/or your insurance will pay for quality care. You want your orthodontic treatment to be successful. It is uncertain what kind of results you will get if you purchase braces online. It can be a waste of your time and money.
Find a skilled Invisalign provider to find out if the treatment is right for you, and to discuss your options for payment plans, or how it can be made affordable for you.
