Invisalign is the market-leading aligner system, offering a discreet way to straighten teeth effectively. However, its success relies on the experience of the clinician planning and overseeing your treatment.
If you’ve had a consultation and been told that you might not be suitable for Invisalign, it’s worth considering seeking a second opinion from a specialist orthodontist.
Understanding the Invisalign journey
Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually move teeth into the desired position. Your journey will begin with a consultation with an Invisalign provider who will evaluate your suitability through a thorough examination, including photos, scans and X-rays if necessary.
While general dentists can provide Invisalign treatment, specialist orthodontists, with their extensive training and expertise, often bring an added layer of precision and experience to the process.
Our experienced orthodontists in Surrey, Dr Faiza Lewis and Dr Richard Williams, treat a wide range of orthodontic cases on a daily basis, including complex ones that might initially seem unsuitable for Invisalign treatment.
Why a second opinion matters
Invisalign, like any orthodontic treatment, is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Each patient’s case and needs are unique, and the success of your treatment is closely tied to the expertise of your Invisalign provider.
By seeking a second opinion from a specialist, you increase your chances of a successful Invisalign experience.
A second opinion from a specialist orthodontist ensures a comprehensive assessment of your teeth and jaws. Our specialists can identify nuances that may have been overlooked, providing a more accurate evaluation of your suitability for Invisalign.
Customised treatment plans
Specialist orthodontists possess the knowledge and experience to develop tailored treatment plans that address your specific needs and challenges. If your case is complex, we can combine other techniques with Invisalign to achieve the desired results.
Peace of mind
Getting a second opinion offers peace of mind and reassurance. Knowing that you’ve explored multiple professional perspectives allows you to make an informed decision about the best course of action for your transformation.
Choice of alternatives
If you’re among the few people not suitable for Invisalign, specialists usually offer a choice of alternatives. We can explore other discreet options like Incognito lingual braces, which are hidden behind your teeth, so they’re virtually invisible.
Reasons to get a second opinion
It’s never a bad idea to have more than one consultation if you’re considering orthodontic treatment. Especially if your case is more complicated, for example, you have severely misaligned teeth or bite issues.
As well as comparing the treatment plans for your chosen providers, you can see which clinician you connect with and weigh up other important factors like whether they offer payment plans and what their patients have to say about their standard of care.
We offer face-to-face consultations at our practice in Ewell in Surrey, or you can get started with a free virtual consultation online.
