Invisalign

My doctor does Invisalign treatment in our office, but she usually doesn’t push it towards patients since it can be expensive. What is an effective way to recommend invisalign to patients who need it? And compared to braces, which is more effective in your opinion?

I have seen some great results with Invisalign. However, whether traditional ortho or Invisalign, the benefits of straight teeth is the same (easier to clean, less perio…).

I’m not a fan of Invisalign except for minor tooth movements. The main reason I don’t like it is because the teeth have to be stripped in between to cause movement and you cannot move molars correctly. Tradition Ortho will work best and even the lingual braces are great if pt is concerned with other people seeing that they have braces. I think Invisalign has some advantages, but only for small movements.

I am with Hygenius. If all that is needed is small movements, say to restraighten anterior teeth following full ortho, it can be helpful. Ortho is a tricky specialty and should be done by orthodontists that have all the tools to do what is needed for proper alignment and occlusion, in my opinion.
