How to Choose an Invisalign Dentist

There are several criteria you should review before choosing a cosmetic dentist, especially if you want Invisalign clear braces, a popular option to metal wire braces. Such criteria include:

  • Experience. Before choosing a cosmetic dentist, ask him or her (or research on your own) how long they have been practicing cosmetic dentistry. Of course, if you already know you want Invisalign clear aligners, specifically ask him or her how much experience they have with Invisalign technology. Invisalign requires strategic, precise skills that an experienced cosmetic dentist acquires throughout the years. It is important to choose such an experienced cosmetic dentist for Invisalign. This will help you feel more secure and confident in the results you can expect for your brand new smile.
  • Education and credentials. It is important to learn about the education and training the cosmetic dentist has regarding Invisalign. There are several types of classes and training levels that a cosmetic dentist can complete, along with a D.D.S degree (for cosmetic dentistry). Cosmetic dentistry involves precise, accurate skills since he or she will be creating flawless dream smiles. Therefore, ensure that the cosmetic dentist has the educational requirements and credentials to utilize Invisalign.
  • Sedation dentistry options for cosmetic dentistry. For patients who are afraid of going to the dentist, or who get overly anxious, it is a great idea to find out if the cosmetic dentist offers sedation dentistry. It is possible to receive sedation for your Invisalign appointments, if needed. Sedation will help patients obtain their dream smile while feeling relaxed and at ease, rather than stressed out and anxious. So find out if the cosmetic dentist offers sedation, and also ask which types of sedation are available. From there, the cosmetic dentist will be able to help you determine which type of sedation is best for you.

When choosing a dentist for Invisalign, you should trust your instincts, and think about how well the cosmetic dentist relates to you, and vice versa. For instance, does he or she listen to your concerns as a patient?

It is important to choose a dentist who listens to your concerns. That way, you can be more confident that you will receive the results you deserve.
