Dr. Elaine Sunga has joined a select group of dental professionals who have been certified as a “Preferred Provider” of the Invisalign tooth-straightening system. Only clinicians who have undergone a special training course and achieved and maintained a high level of experience in using the Invisalign system are named to this group.
“Invisalign uses a clear, virtually invisible series of removable series of aligners to straighten teeth, without any restrictive or uncomfortable wires and brackets,” Dr Sunga explained. “They are incredibly popular with patients of all ages who appreciate the convenience of the system and how easily it suits their lifestyle.”
Before being authorized to prescribe Invisalign treatment to their patients, dentists and orthodontists must attend a special training course offered by Align Technology, the makers of Invisalign. The training focuses on clinical principles and successful treatment techniques as well as Invisalign’s unique software and manufacturing process. After completion of the course, doctors are able to combine their clinical expertise with proprietary 3-D Invisalign software to order a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that move teeth in precise increments according to the doctor’s personalized patient treatment plan. Doctors can only be named “Preferred Providers” when they have reached a high level of experience with the Invisalign system.
Dr. Sunga has been providing Invisalign treatments to her patients for more than 10 years. To learn more about Invisalign treatment or to schedule a free Invisalign consultation, please call Dr. Sunga’s office at (619) 591-5950 or online at SungaOrtho.com.
