Generally, EXCELLENT INVISALIGN RESULTS can only be achieved with informed and cooperative patients. Invisalign treatment remains an elective procedure. It, like any other treatment of the body, has some inherent risks and limitations. These risks are seldom serious enough to contra-indicate Invisalign treatment, but should be considered when you decide to begin Invisalign treatment. You are therefore urged to read the following information, ask any questions which come to mind, then consent to our treating you or your child by initialing after each statement and signing at the bottom of the form.  AS YOUR DENTIST, I feel that the benefits from Invisalign treatment do outweigh the risks; however, I need you to make your own decision.

PATIENT COOPERATION                  

 

The total time required to complete treatment may exceed our estimate. Excessive bone growth, poor oral hygiene or poor cooperation in wearing the appliance 21 to 22 hours per day, broken appliances and missed appointments can lengthen the treatment time, increase treatment costs, and affect the quality of the end results.

COMPLETION OF TREATMENT WITH or WITHOUT BRACES

 

Our office is proud of our results with hundreds of patients that have completed treatment with 100% Invisalign.  We have offered approximately 3% of our patients the option of clear standard braces to achieve more ideal results than we were able to get with Invisalign alone.  If this option is offered, it is without additional fee and the final decision is made by the patient, not the doctor.

DENTAL DISEASE, DECALCIFICATION

 

Tooth decay, gum disease and permanent markings on teeth are fully preventable, but can occur if Invisalign patients eat food containing excessive sugar and/or do not clean their teeth frequently and properly.

NON-VITAL TOOTH

 

An injured tooth can die over a period of time with or without Invisalign treatment and it may not be obvious that a tooth was previously injured. This tooth may flare up during Invisalign movement and  require root canal treatment. This occurrence is seldom due to Invisalign and is more frequently related to a previous accident. Your general dentist would need to perform a root canal treatment if the tooth should flare up before, during, or after Invisalign treatment.
