When you’re looking for a doctor in any field, it’s important to choose one who specializes in your area of need. This is how you ensure the greatest possible results from treatment.
The same goes for your smile! If you or your child is in need of Invisalign® treatment, it’s important that you choose a specialist who has considerable Invisalign experience. Your smile deserves the greatest quality of care, and that means choosing an expert with years of experience in Invisalign treatment.
Dentist Vs. Orthodontist for Invisalign Treatment
Many dentists offer Invisalign treatment, but dentists actually don’t receive the same training that orthodontists do. There are particular distinctions between an orthodontist’s training and a dentist’s training. Both an orthodontist and a dentist complete dental school, but to become an orthodontist, one has to devote an additional 2 to 3 years to orthodontic specific training.
After receiving a certification, orthodontist schooling for the most experienced orthodontists continues. Dr. Insoft and Dr. Hurst are members of numerous ongoing education organizations, because they’re dedicated to staying on the cutting-edge of orthodontic technologies and techniques to create the perfect smile and an exceptional experience for each patient.
2. Customized Treatment Plans
We create custom treatment plans to achieve the utmost level of personalization throughout the entire orthodontic process. Through personalized treatment plans, our orthodontists create a custom plan using different techniques, appliances or treatments that cater to the individual’s condition.
Before beginning any orthodontic treatment, knowing the provider’s experience in orthodontic diagnosis is essential! Along with that, the provider must be up-to-date on the customized treatments available for you.
During your first visit to one of our offices in Seminole or St. Pete, Dr. Insoft or Dr. Hurst will complete a thorough examination of your teeth. Your orthodontist will use your exam results to determine the best treatment approach for your condition!
3. Diagnosing the Root of the Problem
Although a dentist may have some Invisalign experience, an orthodontist has special expertise in the positions of the teeth and the bite, as well as facial aesthetics.
Orthodontists have special training in understanding how your smile can change your facial profile. Orthodontists identify and treat the root of the bite or tooth misalignment, while dentists are mainly focused on the appearance of the teeth. Successful Invisalign treatment requires an approach that includes both aesthetics and functionality.
4. The cost of Invisalign
Many people believe choosing an Invisalign specialist is more expensive, but this isn’t the case! In fact, the more experience an orthodontist has in Invisalign treatment, the lower they’re able to offer the cost of treatment.
The cost of your Invisalign treatment will depend on:
– Your orthodontic condition and its severity
– The length of treatment required for your condition
– Your individual smile goals
– The payment plan you choose
A dentist or orthodontist who doesn’t specialize in Invisalign may require additional resources to treat your condition. This can end up costing you more money!
At Insoft & Hurst Orthodontics, we offer Invisalign at the same price as traditional braces. It all comes down to your preferences. We don’t want finances to be the determining factor in the type of treatment you choose.
Plus, if you or your teen begins treatment with Invisalign, and you realize you’d prefer braces, you can switch to braces (within 6 months of beginning treatment) at no additional charge. Due to our Invisalign expertise, we’re able to offer these benefits that other orthodontists cannot.
5. Experience Treating Hundreds of Unique Cases with Invisalign
