Myths and Facts About Invisalign®
These common myths might mislead people into believing that Invisalign is not for them. So let’s clear up some of these misconceptions and give you the facts about Invisalign right now:
MYTH #1: Invisalign is only for simple problems.
FACT: Invisalign can be used to fix just about any orthodontic problem. Cell phones used to be just for phone calls. Now you can text, listen to music, play games, surf the web, answer emails, and take pictures with the new smartphones.
Like cell phones, Invisalign technology has also evolved over the last 5 years. In the past, for example, Invisalign could not correct overbites. Now it can do just about everything that traditional braces do, but more comfortably and without the “metal mouth.”
It’s important that your Invisalign treatment is done by a skilled, experienced orthodontist. As an Invisalign Premier Provider in Wellington and Boynton Beach, Florida (FL) and one of the top 5% Invisalign providers in the country, Dr. Petrover has the expertise and knowledge to design the most effective treatment plan for you with Invisalign.
Which brings us to…
MYTH #2: All Invisalign providers (even regular dentists) will get the same results for their patients.
FACT: Not all Invisalign providers are created equal. In fact, your results will vary based on the expertise, knowledge, and skill of your provider.
There are some general dentists out there now offering Invisalign. Yet they do not have the years of formal orthodontic training and the thousands of successfully treated patients necessary to get the best possible results for you.
Wellington & Boynton Beach orthodontist, Dr. Petrover has the experience, training, and expertise to get the results you want – and a caring, friendly approach that will make the treatment fun and easy.
MYTH #3: Invisalign treatment takes twice as long as regular braces.
FACT: Teeth move at the same rate no matter what is moving them. And your treatment time should be the same with Invisalign as with regular braces. In fact, many of our Invisalign patients finish treatment earlier than expected.
MYTH #4: My Insurance won’t cover Invisalign.
FACT: Invisalign is FDA approved. If you have insurance for orthodontics, you have insurance for Invisalign. Many people worry about their insurance benefits and the cost of Invisalign. But money shouldn’t be a barrier to starting treatment. We’ll work with you to make sure that your treatment is covered by insurance and other financing options.
MYTH #5: I’m too young/old for Invisalign.
FACT: With Invisalign Teen we can now treat patients as young as 9 years of age. If you have lost most of your baby teeth, you are probably eligible for Invisalign. We also have patients who are in their 60s and 70s who are being treated successfully with Invisalign. Just because you’re “getting older” doesn’t mean you shouldn’t look and feel your best. Orthodontics can be done for adults of any age – even those in the later seasons of life.
In fact, a 73-year old grandmother came into our orthodontics office recently wanting to know if Invisalign could straighten her teeth. She told us, “I spent my life doing everything for my kids and grandkids. Now it’s time to do something for me.” Dr. Petrover is making sure that she will get excellent results with Invisalign.
We actually prefer Invisalign over braces for our older patients, because they tend to have more dental work such as crowns and fillings. Regular braces are more complicated to fit over dental work, but Invisalign is easy and avoids the pain and discomfort of regular braces.
Speaking of braces, here’s another common myth:
MYTH #6: You’ll need braces to finish treatment after Invisalign.
FACT: You won’t need braces to “finish” your treatment. If a doctor tells you that you’ll need braces after Invisalign, look for a second opinion! Invisalign replaces traditional braces and accomplishes the same treatment goals as braces do.
MYTH #7: Invisalign costs a lot more than regular braces.
FACT: In our office Invisalign costs about the same as clear braces. Other orthodontic practices in Wellington or Boynton Beach may charge a lot more for Invisalign, but we believe that the best technology should be affordable, and that cost shouldn’t stand in the way of the best possible braces and orthodontics for you.
So forget about the myths. The facts are CLEAR: Invisalign by Dr. Petrover is the clear choice for your smile.
