3 Reasons Why Invisalign Providers Should Consider Additional Orthodontic Training

Modified: July 10, 2017 - 12:39 PM

Are you among the 80,000 plus dentists who are trained to provide Invisalign treatment? If so, you are providing a very popular and viable method of orthodontic treatment for your patients. As an orthodontic provider, you understand that the Invisalign technique has some limitations and disadvantages and have also realized that not all patients are candidates for Invisalign treatment.  If your orthodontic training is limited Invisalign or any of the removable clear aligner techniques, you are restricted in the ability to inform your patients.  You have an obligation to inform and advise your patients about possible treatment alternatives so the patient can make an informed decision.  When delivering orthodontic treatment in your office, you should have a clear understanding of comprehensive orthodontic treatment and should seek additional orthodontic training.

Choosing to enroll in Gerety Orthodontic Seminars offers both classroom training and online programs for dentists like you who wish to increase your orthodontic knowledge and understanding of clinical techniques. With onsite training in Tulsa, OK and Nashville, TN our classrooms are convenient and available year round. You can also join us in our virtual classroom online.

Here are the top reasons why we recommend every orthodontic provider to consider additional orthodontic training.

1. Access a Broader Range of Cases

Although Invisalign or a comparable removable clear aligner technique may have you gotten you interested in orthodontics, a comprehensive program of orthodontic training can open many more possibilities and options of treatment for your patients. Gerety Orthodontic Seminars will provide you the guidelines for case selection for your first cases, enabling you to gain confidence and have success. Once you have mastered the comprehensive orthodontic training, you will feel confident to treat 80% of the malocclusions that you encounter in your practice.

2. Removable Aligners Isn’t the Only Clear Option

Some patients demand braces that are not so visible but that doesn’t mean their treatment is limited to aligners. It could be that your patient feels uncomfortable with their braces visible. An alternative is to use clear ceramic brackets. Although the connecting metal wires will be visible with the brackets, clear brackets are definitely harder to see and provide more precision control than clear trays. When you choose Gerety Orthodontic Seminars for your continuing education, you will get more information about the different types of orthodontic treatment, techniques and appliances.

3. More Knowledge Improves Your Orthodontic Skill

When all you have in your tool box is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. Increasing your understanding of orthodontics, will give you the confidence you need to diagnose and treatment plan each case individually, assuring that the patient receives the care and services they deserve. What is your approach for addressing the issues of severe malocclusion, an uncooperative or unmotivated patient, high treatment costs for clear aligners, skeletal issues, and tooth size discrepancies?  If these cases have been referrals in the past, they could easily become orthodontic patients in your practice with the right training.
