We’ve been staying home and staying safe for months, now. Since the first stay-home-stay-safe orders, experts say that the use of social media has increased by 61%. Social media offers the opportunity to connect more easily with loved ones. It also presents advertisers with more opportunities to reach prospective customers. Of the online advertisements that have inundated America’s eyes in the past year, most are benign. Some need serious consideration. Mail-order teeth-straightening is one of them. Here, we discuss why, even in light of the pandemic, Invisalign makes more sense.
Invisalign Has a Low Margin of Error
One of the appealing aspects of mail-order braces may actually be one of the most hazardous. Especially in the time of COVID, patients may assume it is less risky to work with a mail-order distribution service than to visit a dentist in person. We understand. And yet, we encourage you not to take that route. Our office has implemented excellent infection control protocols knowing that this was a vital necessity over recent months. Invisalign is not a cosmetic treatment. It is no less meaningful than traditional orthodontic care because it treats the whole mouth, not just its appearance. When you visit an Invisalign dentist, your treatment is carefully planned and monitored to ensure the best results.
Invisalign is Approved by the American Dental Association
When you’re dealing with misalignment, you are dealing with a problem that has both cosmetic and general health implications. To correct this problem, you want to trust the best. In this instance, the authority is the American Dental Association. This organization was established to vet products and services to confirm their safety and efficacy for patients of all ages. Knowing that Invisalign has earned the ADA seal of approval gives you another level of confidence that your treatment will result in your desired outcome.
Having a straight smile is a goal that remains important this year, even with all we have been through. To learn more about Invisalign and how we are protecting our patients’ health, call our NYC office at (212) 974-8737.
