Straight Teeth from Home: Too Good to be True?
I think we would all agree that straight teeth are preferred over crooked teeth. When given the choice, most people would choose the former over the latter. However, just having a desire for a great smile doesn’t eliminate the obstacles that can get in the way: obstacles like the cost of treatment, fear, and the time commitment required to obtain the smile of your dreams.
In the fast-paced and very busy world in which we are living, the advertisements for the invisible braces that are shipped straight to your door seem like the perfect option. But the skeptic in everyone cannot help but wonder if it is too good to be true.
Dr. Bockus, one of our three awesome dentists at Reflections Dental Care, is passionate about making sure you are informed before deciding which path you take.
At Reflections Dental Care, all three of our doctors provide Invisalign in Oklahoma Cty as an option for orthodontic treatment. However, not everyone is a good candidate for clear aligner therapy. When you come into our office, our doctors are able to determine if clear aligner therapy would be the best for you and your situation.
If you were to order online, skipping the expertise and monitoring of a doctor, it is possible that you might be getting a treatment that is not the best for you and could eventually even be dangerous.
Another benefit of completing orthodontic treatment under the supervision of your dentist is the ability of your dentist to adjust your treatment as it progresses. During your check-up visits, the doctor is able to make sure everything is on track and can immediately make any necessary improvements.
Without these visits, it is impossible to know if your treatment is going well and if any changes need to be made. The doctor is also able to place composite buttons (made out of the same material used for a filling) on the front of specific teeth in order to facilitate very intricate and specific movements.
In conclusion, the time commitment of Invisalign might seem like an insurmountable obstacle in straightening your teeth but will be well worth it in the end. Under the direct supervision of one of our highly-skilled professionals, you can have the smile of your dreams.
The convenience of having your aligners shipped straight to your door seems too good to be true because it just might be.
