5 Questions To Ask Before Getting Invisalign

screen_shot_2016-08-11_at_12.05.40_pm_480Are you considering Invisalign treatment for yourself or your child? If so, it is best to be prepared when you visit your healthcare provider. You will probably discuss many aspects of the treatment, and it can be easy for you to forget some of the questions about Invisalign that you want to ask. Taking a written or printed list with you can help prevent that. Doctors want you to ask questions, and most of them appreciate it when you do bring a list, because they want to offer you the most comprehensive care possible, and for you to be pleased with the results.  So don't be shy.  Read over the questions below and add a few of your own to take with you to your consultation.
