Is Invisalign Right for You?

Are you tired of looking in the mirror to see crooked teeth? Just because you are born with genetics that causes your teeth to be crowded or misaligned, it doesn’t mean that you need to suffer from a crooked smile for the rest of your life. Orthodontic treatments can be used to straighten the teeth and improve your appearance. As a result, you will be more confident about sharing your smile with other people.

Invisalign vs. Traditional Orthodontics

Both Invisalign and traditional braces can be used to straighten your teeth. So, why should you choose Invisalign instead of metal brackets and wires? Not only will Invisalign gently move your teeth into place, but many patients find that this treatment is more comfortable than wearing braces.

The biggest benefit of Invisalign lies in the aesthetics of the treatment. Instead of having metal in your mouth, you will be wearing clear trays. These appliances help you maintain a beautiful smile without the bulk and color of orthodontics wires.

Plus, the aligners can be removed as needed. If you are sitting down to a meal, then you can take out the aligner to eat, and then put it back in your mouth after you are done with the meal.

When Can Invisalign Be Used?

Invisalign can be used in most situations, although there are a few circumstances when traditional braces might be a better option. If intensive Orthodontics are needed, then braces might be necessary. You can talk to your dentist and orthodontist for personalized recommendations about these options.

There are many commonplace dental issues that can be corrected with Invisalign:

  • Tooth Gaps: Extra space that reveals the gums between the teeth, often caused by abnormal jaw growth.
  • Overbite: Where the upper teeth jut out too far over the lower teeth.
  • Underbite: The lower teeth extend beyond the line of the upper teeth.
  • Open Bite: A condition that causes some of the teeth on the upper jaw to not touch the teeth on the lower jaw.
  • Cross Bite: Misalignment of the jaw causes the upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth.
  • Crowded Teeth: If there isn’t enough room in the jaw for the teeth to fit, then the teeth can become crowded. As a result, the teeth are crooked and misaligned.
