Invisalign® is for more than just a straighter smile; it is a part of your complete healthcare plan! While supervised by your general dentist, Invisalign® provides benefits such as gum disease prevention, better blood flow, an improved bite, and more. Although straightening your teeth can lead to a better appearance and higher confidence, the benefits go further than that. That’s why we believe Invisalign® needs to be recognized as part of your overall healthcare and dental plan.
If you live in the Marlton, NJ area and you or someone you know is interested in Invisalign®, Drs. Rosen & Dworkin can provide the guidance you need for a healthier, happier smile. Contact us today to learn more!
Your Dentist Knows Your Teeth
When considering straightening your teeth, you may see ads for direct-to-consumer orthodontic treatments. There are many issues with getting your teeth’s corrective treatment in the mail. One is that the company sending you your corrective trays doesn’t know you. Your current general dentist knows your oral history better than anyone. Since you already have a relationship with them, they know if your bite is off, if you’re susceptible to cavities, and if your teeth are crowded or spaced. Continue to put your trust in them with your teeth alignment.
In-Office Visits are Necessary
It’s recommended to schedule dentist appointments every six months for general check-ups and cleanings. This includes monitoring your teeth’s movement. Teeth may shift for a variety of reasons. Your dentist may recommend Invisalign® treatment to adjust your teeth into a better place. When you have Invisalign®, it’s important to see your dentist regularly so they can watch the movement and make adjustments when necessary. Direct-to-consumer orthodontic treatment companies can supply trays but won’t know if they are working correctly, which can be detrimental to your health.
Trust the ADA & AAO
The American Dental Association (ADA) has been fighting against direct-to-consumer orthodontic treatment companies for years. They have asked the FTC to investigate claims made by Smile Direct Club that the ADA considers misleading and false. The letter “focuses on SDC’s failure to comply with the FDA’s Class II Device ‘prescription only’ requirement applicable to plastic teeth aligners and on the clinical dangers that conduct poses to public health and safety.” The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) has also filed complaints against Smile Direct Club, alleging that they are practicing dental treatments illegally.
Good for Your Entire Dental Plan
Invisalign® aligners do more for you than create an aesthetically pleasing smile. They also help to prevent gum disease, prevent bacteria from building up, correct your bite, and more. When you make Invisalign® part of your healthcare plan, you can set yourself up for dental success in the future!
