Invisalign® is a great way to straighten teeth and achieve that confident, beautiful smile. This orthodontic treatment involves wearing clear plastic aligners rather than using typical metal braces. Before choosing this dental treatment option, you should find out if you are a candidate for Invisalign®. You can schedule your consult with Royce Family Dentistry today by calling 704.540.5440.
The first issues you will have to think about are the nature and severity of what you want to fix. Some of the situations that Invisalign® can fix include overbite, underbite, gapped teeth, crowded teeth and cross bite. However, since Invisalign® has a difficult time fixing severe cases, you should consider advanced procedures if the case is too severe.
Age is a factor
Generally, Invisalign® is a suitable treatment option for older teenagers and adults. Young adults will not make good candidates for the procedure since their teeth are still growing and changing. As such, it becomes difficult to create accurate aligners to correct the dental anomaly. People in their late teens should still visit their orthodontist to find out if their teeth are still growing.
Your willingness to work for straight teeth
Unlike traditional braces, you will have to remove Invisalign® when eating or drinking. You can also remove them whenever you want. However, if you do not have them on for a good part of the day, they will not help you achieve the desired results. You should be ready to commit to the treatment program and ensure that Invisalign® will fit into your schedule.
Free smile assessment test
Invisalign’s free smile assessment test can help you establish if the aligners can treat your case. Your Invisalign® provider will decide on whether you are a possible candidate.
