A Group of Specialist Orthodontists
Dr Theo Baisi is a Sydney Orthodontist and a member of The Invisible Orthodontist group. This group was formed with the specific goal of providing Invisible Orthodontic treatment to as many patients as possible.
Many patients believe that they are not suitable for Invisible orthodontic treatment. It may be because they have been told by another doctor that their case is too difficult, or they may have even read negative comments online. The reality is that the expertise and experience of the provider have a significant impact on the range of cases they can successfully treat using invisible orthodontic techniques. The Invisible Orthodontist group has over 250 years of orthodontic experience and have treated in excess of 1,300 Invisalign cases.
Just like any medical profession, dentistry has various different types of specialists. Qualified orthodontists are required to complete an additional 2 to 3 years of full time study in order to be registered. In addition to this, Dr Baisi has over 20 years experience practicing as an orthodontist. While any dentist is permitted to treat orthodontic cases, we believe that each patient should do their own due diligence to ensure they are being treated by a provider with the necessary amount of skill and experience.
Invisalign currently treats less than 5% of all orthodontic cases in Australia despite the fact that it's capable of treating over 60% of cases. Additionally, in many cases, Invisalign is a actually a preferable treatment option, both cosmetically and clinically. One of the main reasons for the slow acceptance of Invisalign is the unwillingness of orthodontists to treat cases using this new method. After all, orthodontics has been around for over 100 years and Invisalign was only invented 10 years ago. The Invisible Orthodontist group are attempting to change the perception that Invisalign only treats simple cases by using their combined experience to learn from each other. As a group, the members participate in a clinical case study series aimed at increasing the range of cases each member can treat.
