If you’re looking for orthodontic treatment, you may consider mail-in orthodontics. While this is a convenient option, there are some things you won’t get with this type of treatment. This blog post will discuss 5 things you won’t get with mail-in orthodontics. We’ll also provide information about the benefits of in-office orthodontics. At Szymanowski Orthodontics, we are passionate about smiles and want you to know exactly what you’re getting yourself into!
What are mail-order aligners?
Mail-in orthodontics involve a series of aligners or clear retainers sent to you and an app that is essentially a stand-in for a professional orthodontist. They differ from traditional braces in that they are not custom-fit for your teeth and, therefore, will not provide you with the same level of treatment.
Unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to orthodontic treatment, and aligners that have not been custom designed by an orthodontist may end up causing you more damage in the long run. Additionally, you won’t know if your treatment is going according to plan without regular checkups.
What you won’t get with mail-in orthodontics
With mail-in orthodontics, you don’t get the benefit of a dedicated professional who has an intimate understanding of your unique case. Instead, you may be sent pre-made trays or aligners that are not tailored to your specific orthodontic needs. In addition, in-person locations for mail-in orthodontics are not always easy to come by and are often difficult to access due to the volume of people seeking assistance. In contrast, when you visit our office, Sacramento orthodontist Dr. Damon will thoroughly evaluate your teeth and create a customized treatment plan to ensure the best results.
With a mail-in service, you are essentially on your own without an orthodontist overseeing your treatment plan. This makes it difficult to tell whether your progress is on track. And who wants to act as their own orthodontist, anyways? At Szymanowski Orthodontics, we have a team of orthodontic experts who will be with you every step, providing professional oversight and making adjustments to your aligners if needed.
Mail-in aligners don’t provide the resources to ensure your aligners or trays fit correctly. In addition, there is no way to verify their quality. On the other hand, Dr. Damon uses advanced technology to scan and fit orthodontic appliances to ensure the highest quality and a tailored fit for your unique needs.
Once you get your mail-in orthodontic aligners, any questions must be directed to a customer service line that won’t provide you with professional advice from orthodontic specialists. You won’t be able to receive specialized feedback about any issues that arise during treatment. When you get customized aligners, Dr. Damon is always available to answer your questions and advise on the best practices for the best results.
