Frequently Asked Questions
How is Clear Aligner Treatment Different at Fine Orthodontics?Imagine orthodontic treatment that straightens your teeth discreetly, without anyone knowing. Yes, continued innovation in clear aligners has made aligner treatments far more capable. Many are surprised at what can be done with aligners when compared with conventional braces. Not only has Dr Fine been working closely with Invisalign® since 2000, he has also kept a close watch on new developments and has now developed his own system of manufactured Aligners: FineLine. So you can be assured that the latest innovations will be applied to your or your child's treatment at Fine Orthodontics. (Yes, we offer Invisalign® and other types of Clear Aligners for children as well). Dr Fine's own aligner system FineLine is a great option in many cases, and is available exclusively at Fine Orthodontics. FineLine uses the best available materials and the latest technologies and techniques in Clear Aligner design and manufacture. FineLine offers substantial value, as we are often able to offer it at a lower cost than using external aligner manufacturers like Invisalign®. When choosing where to have your treatment, it is important to remember that the success of your treatment will depend on the experience and ability of the clinician who plans and manages your treatment. This is why it's crucial to choose the right orthodontist to ensure the best outcome for your smile. The orthodontist's knowledge, skills, and dedication are essential factors in determining the success of your treatment. Whilst general dental clinics may offer orthodontic services (including clear aligner treatment like Invisalign®) only qualified specialist orthodontists have the necessary skills and education to ensure that you get the very best result possible. Orthodontists have an additional qualification on top of general dentistry, with 2-3 years extra specialist training. In addition, experienced specialist orthodontists have spent countless hours planning and carrying out orthodontics exclusively. With over 30 years of specialist experience, Dr. Fine is highly-skilled and knowledgeable, and is an expert at using clear aligners to create beautiful, healthy smiles.
Why do people usually choose aligners over braces?People usually choose aligners over braces because: they are less noticeable than metal or even clear braces clear aligners are removable, so brushing and flossing is easier they are more comfortable than clear, metal or lingual ('behind the teeth') braces there are fewer dietary restrictions aligners require less maintenance and fewer office visits many office visits can be replaced by remote monitoring they can be removed for special occasions Clear aligners are only as good as the dental professional managing the process. A highly trained orthodontist can use the Invisalign® clear aligner system to its full potential. Orthodontic specialists also utilise advanced aligner accessories and tooth attachments. These accessories allow for more complex treatments previously only possible with braces. While there are many different aligner systems, clear aligners aren’t a fix-all just on their own.
