Your Particular Situation…

The most important factor that determines whether or not you are an ideal candidate for Invisalign is the severity of your condition. Invisalign can treat overbites, underbites, crossbites, crowded teeth, and gaps in teeth as long as the patient does not have an intense situation that measures at the far end of the spectrum. If your circumstance is beyond the abilities of Invisalign, you may have to decide upon an alternative procedure namely conventional metal braces or clear braces.

Your Age…

Invisalign is more appropriate for adults as well as older teenagers rather than children. Since children’s teeth are still in the process of growing, the Invisalign method is not the proper route of treatment. Older teenagers and adults are quite partial towards Invisalign to remodel their smiles due to the product’s appealing transparency.

Your Stick-With-It Power…

You are required to remove your aligners when you eat and drink anything with the exception of water. Otherwise, it is pertinent that Invisalign is placed within your mouth for at least 22 hours per day without fail.

Patients are instructed to wear retainers as aftercare following the removal of traditional braces. Although the wearing of retainers is paramount in preventing the teeth from shifting, it is not uncommon for patients to ignore this important guideline. Invisalign is no different in terms of consistent compliance to achieve successful results.

Your Invisalign Smile Assessment…

Invisalign offers a free Smile Assessment. All you have to do is supply some information about yourself and what you would like to correct regarding your teeth. Then, the assessment will give you an idea of whether you are a potential candidate for treatment. As this general test cannot give you a definitive answer. Either way, you must consult with a knowledgeable dentist to find out if Invisalign is right for you.
