We’re sometimes faced with the decision of what type of doctor or specialist we should see for a diagnosis or treatment. If our condition is in a certain field, say heart health or general health, we’re likely to choose a specialist in that field.
In other words, would you schedule a cardiology appointment with your family doctor? Hopefully not! Family doctors don’t necessarily have the same experience as cardiologists. 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.
Top 4 Reasons to Choose an Orthodontist with Invisalign Experience
1. An Orthodontist’s Education
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 to3 years to orthodontic training.
After receiving a certification, orthodontists continue practicing in their field. The best orthodontists pursue ongoing education and stay on the cutting-edge, using the latest technology to ensure outstanding results.
“Continuing education is the key to maintaining the highest level of excellence possible, and I am a staunch advocate of pursuing it. Attendance at study clubs, seminars, and lectures is on my agenda often throughout the year so that I remain on the cutting edge of orthodontic technology,” says Dr. King.
Dr. King is dedicated to continuously improving his technique for his patients! Ensuring the best results with Invisalign requires this level of care and education.
2. Customized Treatment Plans
We use The King Method approach for the utmost level of customization. This method involves a custom selection of specific techniques and tools 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 our office, Dr. King will complete a thorough examination of your teeth. He uses your exam results to determine the best treatment approach for your condition.
Using the unique King Method approach, Dr. King will use a combination of all orthodontic methods fused into a single method to treat patients in a more effective and efficient manner. Through a combination of Dr. King’s Invisalign expertise and his King Method approach, patients can experience faster results with shorter treatment periods and superior results!
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
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 Jupiter Orthodontics, our mission is to provide affordable, high-quality treatment to everyone, regardless of their financial situation. We offer several payment options and accept a number of insurance plans to meet the needs of our patients. In other words, the cost of Invisalign is affordable with us!
5. Google Reviews
Pro tip: When choosing an orthodontist for Invisalign treatment, how can you ensure that he or she provides excellent care?
Take a look at their Google reviews!
When picking your specialist, look for reviews online, testimonials on their website, as well as other review sources to ensure that the orthodontist provides a high quality of care. People leave genuine reviews all the time—especially if they’re dissatisfied with treatment! Looking at the orthodontist’s reviews on their Google listing and their website will give you greater insight into their approach to orthodontic care.
At Jupiter Orthodontics, we value our patients’ feedback. (Take a look at our patients’ testimonials!) We are constantly assessing our patients’ feedback to improve our processes and techniques.
