But first things first – a lot of invisalign reviews that you find online are nothing more than muck. Those are most helpful to misguide you. Therefore you must be careful what you are feeding on. Else you will easily fall prey to that bogus information and end up dissatisfied with the treatment.
Real life invisalign experience
The blogger underwent invisalign treatment to fix teeth that were slightly crooked. The bite was also slightly misaligned, as it is obvious. Fixing those problems with virtually invisible aligners was little doubtful at the beginning. Thus the blogger searched the web for information – authentic and unbiased. But most dental websites reveal only positive reviews about the treatment which are little drifted from the truth.
Therefore it is better to search for negative reviews and only then you will come across complaints, problems and mistakes. If you can search properly there are lots of cases of invisalign failure in the virtual web. There is even a section of patients who think invisalign ruined their teeth. Now the question is what is your takeaway from those negative reviews? What will you infer from those untoward experiences? How those negative, unfortunate developments help you separate the truth from the muck that most dental websites present?
There is no better option than digging deeper to find answers to the questions above.
The journey at the initial stages
Before going for the treatment this blogger had created a list of questions that would shed light on the procedure. You may do the same and prepare your own query list. The questions that may be included are –
- Does the procedure hurt?
- How does the procedure work?
- Will the teeth appear absolutely flawless after the treatment?
- What things could go wrong in the treatment?
- How long will the treatment last?
- How much is the cost?
- Post-invisalign will I be prone to gum recession or black triangles?
- Can invisalign lead to cavities?
If there is anything, any topic, any query that strikes your mind in addition to the ones mentioned above just include that in your query list. Place the questions one by one in front of the invisalign provider before you decide about the treatment. Listen to the answers carefully. That way you will have a lot of necessary facts in hand to take an informed decision.
Choosing your invisalign provider
Let us discuss how the process works as a whole. First there is an evaluation that is done by your dentist or orthodontist. If there is no trust and transparency with your invisalign provider right from the beginning things may turn out to be unnecessarily complicated in the course of the journey. And choosing an invisalign dentist whom you can trust blindfolded is a crucial part of the overall process.
You have to feel comfortable raising your concerns and asking questions to the dental practitioner. Ofcourse, you get every answer to your questions on the web. But it is more important for you to feel confident discussing treatment procedure and options with your provider too. This is why it is utmost important to choose your invisalign provider with little care and patience. Do not start your treatment in haste. If you tie up with a provider with whom you cannot build up the bond of trust, your treatment has greater chances of ending in failure.
When the treatment goes wrong
Do you know negative feedback of the treatment mostly comes from people who are dissatisfied with their final result? Invisalign as such cannot give you a negative experience or, have negative feedback. It is nothing but a concrete and tested technology to move the teeth. Most negative reviewers blame invisalign providers who fail to move the teeth correctly.
What are the possibilities that may occur when invisalign goes wrong? Let us explore the aspect now to get a better grip on the overall matter. The bad results with invisalign treatment include the following –
- Crooked teeth
- Tooth cavities
- Pain in the jaw
- Misaligned bite
- Gum disease
In other words, invisalign failure puts you in a position where after spending a huge sum of money you end up with more issues related to your oral health than you ever imagined.
Common complains in invisalign
Complaints of dissatisfied invisalign patients can easily be grouped under the following five sections – Crooked teeth, treatment time, misalignment of the teeth, cavity formation and black triangles. If you want to avoid the bad treatment outcome then it is important to understand the role of your provider in your invisalign journey.
In contrast to the popular notion invisalign treatment is not just about those clear, transparent plastic aligner trays. Unlike many home aligner procedures this technology provides you with a skilled and qualified professional to monitor the overall teeth straightening process.
A leading orthodontist dealing in Invisalign braces says, without proper experiences of a provider the treatment is more likely to go awry. Although every treatment plan is generated by computers, a provider keeps making innumerable refinements to it in course of the treatment to facilitate movement of the stubborn teeth. When the experience is lacking in a professional, the technology may ruin the teeth.
