Second Opinion For Invisalign

santa clara invisalign patient Invisalign is a successful and effective alternative to traditional braces. Instead of wearing noticeable metal braces, patients can wear discreet clear aligners that provide similar results. At Santa Clara Family Dental, we have administered this treatment several times with excellent results. Our dentist is very familiar with how the aligners work and how patients adjust to it. Whether you want to get treatment or are looking for a 2nd opinion for Invisalign, we can help. 

Is A Second Opinion Necessary?

Clear aligners aren’t attached to the teeth and are removable, but you still need to consider the treatment carefully. The aligners will loosen the teeth imperceptibly and gently move them into the desired position, which means you need to make sure the procedure is the right choice for you.

Most patients trust their dentist to provide straightforward and unbiased advice on Invisalign. However, it is still a good idea to get a second opinion as it can help you make decisions with much more certainty. It can help confirm that your dentist will provide you with trustworthy and reliable advice.

  • Bring your past dental records and any brief your current dentist provides to the appointment.

  • Your current dentist is pushing Invisalign treatment on you. 
  • The treatment seems more expensive than the average market rates in your area.
  • You have a severe overbite or underbite and don’t know if Invisalign will help. 
  • You don’t have a good rapport with your current dentist and need someone else’s input. 
  • The current dentist doesn’t have good feedback from past patients who have undergone Invisalign treatment. 
  • The dentist isn’t answering all of your questions clearly, and you’re still uncertain about the procedure.

If you experience any of these problems, it is a good idea to find a trustworthy professional for a 2nd opinion for Invisalign. You can contact us immediately and explain your concerns to our dentist. Don’t hesitate to get a consultation if you’re uncomfortable with the procedure and feel like your dentist isn’t addressing your concerns. 

It isn’t uncommon for patients to get a second opinion even during the treatment.

We can help you in such situations and ensure your treatment goes more smoothly.
