Teeth straightening with Invisalign aligners is more reliable and has a higher chance of success when treatment begins with a face-to-face examination and continues to be supervised by a qualified dentist or orthodontist throughout the treatment duration. Face-to-face examinations allow your dentist to pick up on any oral health concerns that may not have otherwise been identified, prior to starting treatment.

Moving teeth when a patient has untreated tooth decay, gum disease or another dental issue may cause irreversible damage to teeth and gums. Another reason for seeing a dentist for clear aligner treatment is because they can monitor your progress, adjust trays when needed and address any concerns you have.
