Miami and South Beach, FL Orthodontist Busts Myths Associated With Invisalign

December 22, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
BRICKELL, MIAMI AND SOUTH BEACH, FLORIDA - Our staff at the offices of Dr. Stephen Grussmark, a Coral Gables, Brickell, Miami and South Beach orthodontist who owns the Centre for Invisible Orthodontics, encounters plenty of myths about Invisalign as new patients inquire about the invisible orthodontic treatment.

Here are the four most common myths:
Myth 1- Only simple orthodontic cases can be treatment with Invisalign.
Fact- Most malocclusions can be treated with Invisalign alone, or with a combination of Invisalign and traditional braces. In October 2010, Align Technology, Inc., the makers of Invisalign, introduced a series of features that facilitate treatment of Class II (overbite) and Class III (underbite) malocclusions, said Grussmark, a Miami and South Beach Invisalign provider who has offered the treatment since it was introduced in 1999. Even patients requiring complex surgical intervention can be treated with Invisalign.

Myth 2- Invisalign treatment is not as stable as traditional braces.
Fact- Most people will experience movement- particularly in the lower front teeth- as they age if they don't continue retainer use. There is no scientific evidence of any difference in stability between an Invisalign or braces treated orthodontic case.

Myth 3- Invisalign treatment takes longer than other types of orthodontic treatment.
Fact- Invisalign treatment usually can be completed more quickly than treatment with braces. Average treatment time with Invisalign for our patients is one year.

Myth 4- Invisalign treatment is more expensive than traditional orthodontic treatment.
Fact- Since being introduced in 1999, Grussmark's Miami and South Beach orthodontics offices have seen the cost of Invisalign treatment decrease by about one third. Today, Invisalign treatment cost is comparable to traditional braces.
