Questions to ask at your dentist or orthodontist appointment.

If you are looking to improve your smile, the first step towards straighter teeth is booking a dentist or orthodontist appointment. Dentists and orthodontists specialise in the correction of misaligned teeth and jaws. If you are experiencing common dental issues such as crowded teeth, gapped teeth, underbite, overbite and crossbite, a dentist or orthodontist will be able to help. In many cases, Invisalign clear aligners can help correct these problems.

By meeting with an Invisalign trained orthodontist or dentist for a consultation, you’ll be able to find out if Invisalign clear aligners are right for you.

Try to be proactive and ask lots of questions to get the most out of your Invisalign appointment. Your Invisalign Doctor should be able to give you all the answers you need, so you can begin your personal treatment plan with confidence.
