Disappointed that you’ve been told you are not a candidate for Invisalign?
You are a professional whose image means success.
You are a student who wants to improve their smile.
You are a person who wants more confidence by having straight teeth.
You did your research.
Your mind is set – you have decided that the Invisalign® program is for you for various reasons, but mostly, because it is nearly invisible and removable.
So you visited a local orthodontist or dentist and was informed that your case would be too difficult to correct using the Invisalign® program.
You were told that metal braces are your only option.
“What!” “How can this be? If I am not a candidate for Invisalign, then who is?”
Hearing this news, your excitement had been deflated like a balloon.
Don’t give up!
If you were told you are not a candidate for Invisalign – there may still be hope.
Not all Orthodontists are Alike
At Miller Orthodontics, we often hear that people are told that they don’t qualify for Invisalign.
This is unfortunate and disappointing for you.
But what you need to know is that you may very well indeed qualify for Invisalign® treatment to enhance your smile and your confidence.
Not all orthodontists have the same level of experience and training.
Invisalign is one of many tools orthodontists have at their disposal to correct smiles.
And like any tool, it is only as good as the person using it.
Executing a successful plan for an Invisalign case requires art, science, and experience.
Ask someone who has never been trained on mixing paint colors or using a paintbrush to paint a replica of a Monet – rest assured, the result will not look like a Monet.
In this case, the paintbrush is the tool.
There are trained artists who are capable of duplicating the look of a Monet painting.
Another might get it close.
And yet another has no chance.
The point is – the tool is only as good as the person using it.
Steps to take to be a candidate for Invisalign
If you are rebounding from being rejected for Invisalign or considering it for the first time, this guide will help you determine an orthodontist best suited to your particular case.
- Select an orthodontist with a substantial record of Invisalign patients.
- With many ortho practices offering (free consultations), get opinions from at least two.
- Evaluate how your situation diagnosed. Was is extensive? What technologies and testing were utilized for the diagnosis? Do you feel confident after the consultation?
- Request to review (before and after photos) of actual cases treated.
- Determine the competency of your practitioner and whether they thoroughly discuss your issues and the length of treatment to get the results you want.
Your smile, more specifically, your teeth, project how you look and feel.
A great smile provides confidence in our lives – socially and professionally.
When we look good, it makes us feel good too.
Lives are changed when smiles are corrected with Invisalign.
