Invisalign® Alternatives- Alternative Aligners – “your own brand” Aligners
Did you know that we are the only orthodontic consultants in the industry who can advise on every appliance available in the market? We are not bound to any one brand or type – whether you are working with “your own brand” aligners, alternative aligners, generic aligners, or brand-name aligners, we have seen it all, worked with it all, and continue to strengthen relationships with all orthodontic vendors. There are so many options for creating your own in-house or alternative aligner systems. Many involve little or no lab work. The savings can be up to $1500 per case.
Ortho For Everyone
We are firm believers that there is a brand, an appliance, and a budget for every patient. We can help you determine which systems will work best for your practice. We do this on both a case by case and a larger vendor-client relationship basis, and it is all done online. Simply send us your case photos and notes via our HIPAA-compliant portal, and we will advise you on whether the patient is a good candidate for Invisalign®, traditional braces or an alternative system. StraightSmile Solutions™ will be with you at every step of the way with unlimited access included with your monthly subscription.
Saving On IDB Lab Fees and OVERHEAD
Some orthodontic systems and brands require you to use specified labs, but others do not. Save money and have better control over the final product by making use of your own chosen laboratory. The trick is knowing which cases can safely and effectively be completed this way – StraightSmile Solutions™ will help you decide. If you are looking to lower your lab fees, we can connect you with labs that will support you and help to negotiate reasonable fees.
The incorporation of teledentistry and attachment-free aligners is also a great idea to help to save on overhead. Saving chair time is a simple way to grow your practice while supporting your bottom line.
Some branded indirect bonding companies charge $700-$800 a case for access to a forum and a treatment plan. Our team can refer you to labs that charge only $200-$400 for a full IDB set-up and StraightSmile Solutions® comes with unlimited coaching on unlimited cases each month.
Using the OrthoTain® Guided-Eruption Technique is an amazing way to grow your pedo-ortho practice. Fundamentally different biomechanically from aligners, this low-force method to early orthodontics reduces the need for long-term retention. The night-time only appliance systems make compliance easy and are an excellent patient experience.
