Invisalign has become a mainstream orthodontic appliance and deciding on an Invisalign provider can be time-consuming and a difficult job especially in big cities with numerous providers.
Choosing the right Invisalign Provider will provide security and peace of mind that your smile will be the one to keep for the rest of your life!
Experience and qualifications can vary widely between Invisalign providers which are categorised in 5 different levels, based on their experience in providing Invisalign treatments.
The levels of Invisalign provider
Level 1 – Bronze Provider
A bronze provider would have completed up to 10 cases per year.
Level 2 – Silver Provider
A silver provider would have completed between 11 and 20 Invisalign cases per year.
Level 3 – Gold Provider
A gold provider would have completed between 21 and 50 Invisalign cases per year.
Level 4 – Platinum Provider
A Platinum provider would have completed between 51 and 150 Invisalign cases per year.
Level 5 – Diamond Provider
A diamond provider would have provided more than 151 Invisalign cases per year. This is the highest level an Invisalign provider can obtain. The higher levels are usually obtained by bigger practices however a patient would be better off looking at the individual doctor’s achievements.
Is the provider’s level the most important thing?
For every patient, the most important thing is the certification of the provider. Look for certifications from established universities and institutions in the United Kingdom. Having a specialist orthodontist providing you with treatment ensures that they can accurately diagnose your problem and know the right course of action to take.
Naturally, apart from certifications and qualifications, experience goes a long way.
What is the first step to have Invisalign treatment?
It is important to schedule an initial consultation with an Invisalign provider. This provides a great opportunity to get to know them and what they can do for you. The provider would outline the benefits and risks and outline any difficulties or restrictions that might be met along your treatment path.
The consultation should be with the Invisalign provider himself/herself. Having a consultation with a coordinator or therapist might not provide you with the answers to all the questions you might have.
