5 Things to Consider Before Starting DIY Orthodontic Treatment

Five things to consider - Invisalign

Do-It-Yourself (DIY) teeth alignment has become all the rage over the last few years. Why? Time! Everyone is looking for more time in their day, and yet we all still seem to be running out of it. Getting the smile of your dreams without having to schedule progress appointments or have routine office visits seems like a dream come true. Well – it can be!

From what we’ve heard from our patients and community members that have given “the other guy” a try, that dream can quickly turn into a nightmare when things aren’t done right. We’ve heard countless horror stories of teeth immediately shifting back, intense nerve pain, jaw movement, receding gums and even, in worst cases, teeth falling out completely!

We finally said enough is enough. Clear Convenience, by Bubon Orthodontics, was created to give our community an option that allows for both expert care and the convenience of straightening your smile at home. Using Invisalign clear aligners, our doctors will oversee your case and give you the smile of your dreams in 6 months or less, and an average of only two office visits!

We’ve put together a list of 5 things you need to know before starting at-home orthodontic treatment.

1. Who oversees your smile transformation?

A smile is one of the first things you notice about a person, and likewise it’s one of the first things people will notice about you! A smile is more than just a set of teeth. It’s confidence, a strong first impression, nailing a job interview, or getting a second date. Smiles can change our lives – so why trust it to a stranger?

When you go with “the other guy” you’ll likely never meet your doctor. From what we can see in their social media comments, robots aren’t the best at customer service. Emails aren’t replied to, phones aren’t answered, and their guarantee is useless because there is no one to hear your complaints.

Clear Convenience, by Bubon Orthodontics, is right in your backyard! We treat patients located in Southeastern Wisconsin, so we’re here if you need us. We pride ourselves on being local, friendly, and available!

2. What products are being used to change your smile?

We use only Invisalign’s patented SmartTrack material and exclusive software, which is the most advanced technology in the industry. We take a 3D scan of your smile to ensure accuracy as well as convenience. Other companies often use cheap plastic aligners and goopy impression material (which is both messy and challenging to properly do yourself). Inferior materials lead to underwhelming results.

3. Are the “experts” really experts?

DIY smile companies have been popping up all over the place in the last few years. They’re fun, new, and exciting – but is that really what you want to base a medical decision on?

Bubon Orthodontics was founded in 1993. Our team of doctors have over 50 years of combined experience and we’ve been awarded Invisalign’s VIP Diamond Plus Provider status. This means we are the most experienced Invisalign provider in the state and are within the top 1% in the nation.

4. How much is this going to cost and what’s the overall value?

On average, treatment with Clear Convenience lasts 6 months or less and costs $2,450. This is a better deal than what some of “the other guys” can offer you. When you consider the experts behind the treatment, the overall value becomes even better!

Unlike “the other guys” we process insurance for you. We offer interest free payment plans and our consults are completely free (and can now be done virtually). To top it all off, your first set of retainers are free, and we throw in free whitening as well to add even more value. It’s clear our value is unbeatable!

5. How long will I have to wait to begin my smile transformation?

With Clear Convenience, you can get started today! We offer same day smile assessments within two hours of booking your consult. Book your consult online (or give us a call), choose any of our 16 convenient locations, and an expert will meet you there even if the office is closed that day! Or you can even complete a virtual consult completely online from home. Talk about convenience!
