Is It Better to Go to a Dentist or Orthodontist for Invisalign?

November 23, 2022
Posted By: Dr. Daniel Seger

Invisalign is an excellent solution to most mild to moderate orthodontic issues. Over the past few decades, Invisalign has transformed millions of smiles worldwide. With Invisalign, you can achieve a healthier, more aligned smile in about 12–24 months. Schedule your appointment with Dr. Daniel Seger today to learn if Invisalign is right for you. 


What Is Invisalign and How Does It Work?

Invisalign is an advanced orthodontic system that uses clear, plastic aligner trays to straighten teeth and correct malpositioned bites. Patients wear clear aligner trays over their teeth; over time, their teeth move into the desired position. These removable clear braces are more comfortable and convenient than traditional metal braces. Invisalign clear aligners can correct mild to moderate cases of the following concerns:

  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Open bites
  • Crossbites 
  • Crooked teeth
  • Overlapping teeth 
  • Gaps or uneven spacing between teeth
  • Twisted or protruding teeth 

General Dentist vs. Orthodontist for Invisalign 

A general dentist can treat mild malocclusions with Invisalign. However, patients with severe or more complex alignment issues may need to seek treatment from an orthodontist. An orthodontist exclusively specializes in tooth alignment using various orthodontic technologies. 

Dr. Daniel Seger is a skilled and experienced dentist who provides Invisalign at The Dental Health Center in Aston, PA. Dr. Seger can offer an initial consultation and evaluation for Invisalign clear aligners. 

We recommend speaking with an orthodontist if you have more complex orthodontic issues. Our friendly and knowledgeable team at The Dental Health Center is pleased to refer you so you can receive the specific treatment you need.
