In today’s age of e-commerce, mail order services and do-it-yourself (DIY) projects, it seems like a new company offering DIY clear aligners pops up every week. While the promise of a beautiful bright smile at a reduced fee might be alluring, it’s important that consumers stay well informed about the significant differences between DIY aligners and Invisalign clear aligner therapy under supervision of Board-certified orthodontists, Drs. Jesse Teng and Cristiana Araujo (JT Orthodontics in El Paso, TX).
First of all, we must remember that straight teeth are not just about a good image and feeling confident. Aligning teeth can impact your long-term dental and physical health so it is important to see a dental professional who can closely plan and monitor teeth movement. An orthodontist has the additional years of specialty training in Orthodontics after dental school to give you a beautiful smile and a properly functioning bite. JT Orthodontics proudly offers Invisalign, one of the most recognized and advanced systems in clear aligner therapy. What makes Invisalign the front runner in the industry and our preferred method of choice?
Being at the forefront the development of aligner therapy, Invisalign leads with innovative technology and expertise in the different stages of treatment:
A great smile begins with a high-quality digital 3-D scan. No goopy-gooey trays here! The iTero digital scanner takes an astounding 6,000 images per second and renders a precise 3-D image. With the Invisalign treatment simulator you can see what your smile will look like in the end. Then, with the Invisalign Clin-Check software, our doctors can analyze, plan, and modify your treatment in detail.
Invisalign techs follow a treatment plan created by Drs. Teng and Araujo, Board-certified orthodontists, to fabricate your aligners. These are no ordinary aligners. Invisalign aligners are made with a special patented material which moves teeth with greater precision and less discomfort. The custom precision tooth attachments also work with your aligners on difficult and detailed movements.
Invisalign treatment is a breeze because the ultra-thin aligners are comfortable to wear. Due to all the awesome built-in technology, tray changes can happen at shorter intervals than other aligners. As an added bonus, our office offers Propel accelerated treatment to speed orthodontic movements and get you out of treatment in record time!
