Caudill Orthodontics Makes Top 1% of Invisalign Providers
Dr. Ryan Caudill and his associate, Dr. Angela McNeight, are stoked to announce their practice as Brevard’s first Top 1% Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen® Provider. Dr. Caudill is in the top 1% of all Invisalign® providers in North America! He's essentially the big Kahoona, hanging 10 on the crest of a giant wave. No local provider has a more thorough knowledge of the product and patient case experiences.

 
Invisalign® is a series of clear plastic aligners that steadily move teeth over time based on 3D computer modeling. Patients wear their Invisalign aligners all the time except for eating and brushing. This ensures their result will be as good as braces and as fast as braces. Invisalign® has become a popular alternative to braces since its release almost 20 years ago due to its esthetic advantages as well as ease of use.

Invisalign® has brought orthodontics into the digital age. Caudill Orthodontics is fully converted into this digital process and has invested in a dental intraoral scanner in each of their Suntree and Merritt Island offices. This eliminates the infamous goopy impression that often makes patients feel like they are going to lose their lunch. In as little as few minutes, a 3D digital image of your teeth is taken so the doctors can start the digital planning process.

However, buyer beware - Invisalign providers aren’t one size fits all. You can get Invisalign treatment from either your dentist or an orthodontist. Most people know that orthodontists have extra years of specialized university training but still regretfully decide to treat with an inexperienced Invisalign provider. Even among orthodontists, many still only practice in the analog braces age and tell patients they are not candidates for Invisalign. Caudill Orthodontics recognized about 10 years ago that Invisalign was going to be the digital future of orthodontics and invested hundreds of hours of education to become Invisalign experts. We can now comfortably say almost every orthodontic problem can be fixed with Invisalign.

Dr. Ryan Caudill has been recognized by Invisalign for his mastery of the technique and was honored to be asked in 2012 to teach for the company. He is the only orthodontist in the southeastern region of the United States to be on Align Technology’s (the parent company of Invisalign) teaching faculty. He has taught Invisalign to nearly a thousand orthodontists across North America. Learn more in our recent blog.
