1. Our invisalign cases are Treated by Orthodontists

What is the difference between a dentist and an orthodontist?

Your invisalign treatment is diagnosed and treated by orthodontists. Orthodontists are braces dentist that has undergone additional years of training at their university to specialize on the area of prevention, diagnosis and treatment of dental and facial irregularities.  Similar to becoming a medical specialist, such as a surgeon or an internist, orthodontists complete orthodontic residency program for two to three years after their dental school.

What does this mean if I am treated by an orthodontist?

Opting your invisalign treatment with an orthodontist ensures for successful treatment results. Although aided by computerized technologies during treatment plan, your dentist will still need to provide instructions to invisalign on the mechanics and overall treatment plan for your treatment. An experienced and trained orthodontist will be able to determine minimal teeth stripping and proper steps to expand or shift teeth positioning into place. This ensures that your invisalign treatment is successful within the given period of time and teeth moves into correct positions with proper occlusional bite.  

In Thailand, all general dentists are licensed to provide braces treatment. Dentists do not need to be orthodontists to be provide invisalign treatment and can undergo a few day invisalign training course to be invisalign doctor. At BIDH, we only permit orthodontist to treat our invisalign cases. Not only do they have to be an orthodontist, they must have also completed the invisalign certification course and have treated personal cases before treating our patients.
