Mail Order Braces are they Really Worth It?


Share This Post

Buying things on the internet is risky business, especially if you have been eyeing those mail order braces. Unlike prescription clear braces, those clear plastic aligners that look too good to be true really are.

Mail Order Braces Could be Problematic

According to Bela Family Dentistry, not everyone is a good candidate for invisible braces. People with severely tipped, tilted, or crooked teeth may fare better with traditional wires and brackets.

If you are a person with a very wide space between your teeth or a prominent under or overbite, mail order braces may do more harm than good. Remember, there is no monitoring when it comes to online braces. 

Invisalign® Aligners for a Safe and Straight Smile

Bela Family Dentistry is a proud provider of the Invisalign® clear braces system. As licensed and experienced Invisalign® providers in South Carolina and Georgia, Bela Family Dentistry would never recommend mail order braces nor would they provide Invisalign® to a patient who wasn’t a good fit.

Providing a customized fit is crucial when it comes to clear plastic aligners for tooth straightening. If the aligners are off by the slightest you could experience problems. 

Invisalign® Candidates

Your Invisalign® provider in South Carolina offers Invisalign® to patients with the following criteria:

Crooked and Crowded Teeth
Cross Bite
Under Bite
Over Bite
Gapped Teeth
Open Bite

Of course, only the team from Bela Family Dentistry can determine if Invisalign® is the best solution for you and your smile. As previously mentioned, patients with severe dental issues may need to consider conventional braces.

How Invisalign® Works

If you and your Invisalign® provider in South Carolina deem you a good candidate for Invisalign®, pictures and impressions are taken. These are used to make your new clear plastic aligners.

You will receive between 11 and 31 sets of aligners that you wear for 20 to 22 hours each day. You will only remove your clear braces when you eat, drink, brush, and floss. Depending on your customized Invisalign® prescription, you’ll swap for a new set every 7 to 14 days.

Unlike braces found on the internet, Invisalign® is monitored. That means you will visit Bela Family Dentistry every six weeks to make sure your prescription is going according to plan.

Invisalign® Instead of Mail Order Braces

Forget about mail order braces and straighten your teeth the professional way with Invisalign®. The licensed Invisalign® providers in South Carolina and Georgia will make sure you finish your cosmetic dentistry treatment with a beautiful and healthy smile.

Best of all, it takes less time to straighten your teeth with Invisalign®. Conventional braces can take up to two years. With Invisalign® patients are seeing results in 12 to 18 months.
