Who Qualifies for Invisalign® Treatment?
The good thing about Invisalign® is that the treatment is not very exclusive. If you are an older teen or adult with mild to moderate tooth misalignment, then you may likely be an excellent candidate. During your free Invisalign® consultation, Dr. Calcagno will carefully assess your malocclusion and the state of your dental health to determine your candidacy. If you qualify, she will discuss the advantages of choosing Invisalign® clear aligners, and what you can expect during treatment.
Do You Wish for a Straighter Smile?
Many adults choose Invisalign® because they wish to boost their confidence by improving their smile. Traditional braces can impede that wish because the metal brackets and wires are conspicuous. Invisible braces, however, allow you to straighten your teeth discreetly so you can retain your confidence all the way throughout your treatment.
Did You Wear Braces as a Child?
If you wore braces as a child, but your malocclusion has relapsed, then Invisalign® can offer an optimal solution for once again correcting your bite alignment. Orthodontic relapses are common, though many adults may choose to ignore it out of hesitance to wear braces again. With Invisalign®, such cases can be more comfortably and discreetly resolved.
Do You Exhibit any Existing Dental Issues?
The idea behind Invisalign® is to wear your invisible aligners for up to 23 hours every day. Therefore, it is important that your teeth be healthy and free of decay before you begin treatment. If you have one or more cavities, or if you exhibit signs of gum disease, then you will not be a candidate for Invisalign® until the issue is resolved and your good dental health is restored.
Are Your Teeth Severely Crooked?
If your teeth are severely crooked, then you may require the more involved treatment that only conventional braces can provide. While Invisalign® is highly effective, the aligners are designed to simplify orthodontic treatment, and may not suffice for more complicated cases of malocclusion.
