Mail order braces ads are all over the internet, in magazines and your social media feeds. Sadly, some people are not suitable for online braces. That means you could actually damage your smile.
What are Mail Order Braces?
Mail order braces are clear plastic aligners that are designed to gradually push teeth into the desired position. Unfortunately, you will never visit a dentist if you order braces online.
Pictures that you take are sent to the manufacturer. While some companies claim that a dentist looks over the pictures, you can never be too sure and that’s where your cosmetic dentist in Delray Beach comes in.
A Patented and Preferred Tooth Straightening System
A patented tooth straightening system, Invisalign® uses 11 to 31 sets of clear plastic aligners. Unlike online braces, Invisalign® requires a preferred and licensed dentist to administer.
Not all patients are suitable for clear braces. People who have severe under or overbites, or people with seriously tipped teeth may fare better with conventional wires and brackets. Anyone can order braces online and that is where the problems arise.
How Invisalign® Works
Your dentist in Delray Beach takes pictures and creates a blueprint for your Invisalign® prescription. Dr. George Sanchez will then order your new aligners. When your aligners arrive, you will wear them for 22 hours every day removing when you eat, drink, brush, and floss. Because they are removable, you will not have to worry about the problems that come with old school braces.
While some patients see results in as little as six months, most have a straighter smile in 12 to 18 months.
If you have been considering mail order braces, call and talk to Dr. George first. After all, you only have one smile, make sure you keep it healthy.
