Beware of receiving too many Invisalign trays

Beware of receiving too many Invisalign, or other brand, orthodontic trays at once. It may be more related to dentist convenience than ideal dentistry.  This video on beware of receiving too many Invisalign trays was created in our Braces Orthodontics office.

Hi this is Dr. Jeff Dorfman at The Center for Special Dentistry in New York City talking about Invisalign trays. In our practice, the orthodontist is the only person who treats our patients orthodontically. We well know that in many practices general dentists and orthodontists treat patients and will offer them many Invisalign, and many other like-brand trays, many of them at one time. At our office, we will only offer our patients one or two trays to take home at a time, because we feel that it is particularly important to keep close supervision on these patients while their teeth are being moved. We offer an opinion that perhaps in many cases it is merely a dentists’ convenience to offer their patients many trays at one time rather than necessarily ideal dental care.
