What role do Orthodontists have in your Invisalign , ClearCorrect or other aligner treatment?

Orthodontists have an important role in ensuring you have the smile that you are seeking. There is a common misconception that clear aligners like Invisalign and ClearCorrect straighten teeth. These are just the name of the clear retainers. It is up to the doctor to move your teeth, using his knowledge and expertise with teeth moving.

Orthodontists and specialized dentists that have undergone 3 years of additional full time training in moving teeth. This is all we do. This is different from general dentists where moving teeth may just be one of the procedures they do, asides from fillings or teeth removal. Its like seeing a medical GP versus seeing a cardiac surgeon for  heart surgery.

In a series of videos, I hope to show you the detail of planning that goes into your new smile and how this benefits you, from seeing an orthodontist for your Invisalign, Clearcorrect or other clear aligner treatment.
