Dr. Schatz is a “Silver level” Invisalign provider. This means he has achieved a satisfactory level of treating a particular number of patients with Invisalign within the past year. He has the official endorsement from Invisalign to provide basic treatment for patients qualified for this method of straightening teeth.
Orthodontic Treatment You Can Trust
After a thorough examination and making an assessment of your case, if Dr. Schatz determines you are a good candidate for the Invisalign method of treatment, he will explain the details of the process to you. Keep in mind that not all patients are suitable for this method of orthodontics.
Invisalign uses clear aligners to gently move teeth into the correct position. This process is easier and more comfortable for the patient than traditional braces. Instead of metal brackets and wires, clear plastic aligners are used and changed every two weeks. You can expect treatment to last from 9 to 15 months, depending on the severity of the misalignment of the teeth. Most patients change aligner sets between 18 to 30 times. The number of sets used is determined by the amount of movement needed to provide the optimal results.
Dr. Schatz is committed to providing each patient with the treatment best suited for their particular situation. This may or may not include Invisalign as an option. He will discuss all the available treatments and their advantages and disadvantages. This way you can make an informed decision on which type of orthodontic treatment will fit your lifestyle.
