Is Invisalign Right for Me?
Invisalign has been helping people straighten their smiles for over 20 years. In this time, innovation has created aligners that are more comfortable and more effective than ever before. Today’s Invisalign can create the smile you desire, often two times faster than traditional braces or other types of aligners, and they can be used to treat many types of cases. Are you ready to find out if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign Can Treat Many Orthodontic Issues
In addition to creating a straighter, more beautiful smile, Invisalign can treat a full range of simple to complex orthodontic issues, including:
- Overbite – when the upper front teeth close over the lower teeth
- Underbite – when the lower teeth close over the upper front teeth
- Crossbite – when the jaws don’t line up, causing some top teeth to close over the bottom teeth and some top teeth to close over the bottom teeth
- Gap Teeth – when there are extra spaces between some teeth
- Open Bite – when the top and bottom teeth don’t meet
- Crowded Teeth – when there isn’t enough room for all of the teeth to fit in the jaw
Your Commitment to Your Treatment Matters
Invisalign offers one of the easiest, most comfortable orthodontic treatments available, but its success depends on how well you stick to the treatment plan. You can remove your aligners whenever you’d like, which is great for eating and cleaning your teeth but can also lead to a longer treatment if you don’t wear them enough.
It’s important to wear your aligners for at least 20 to 22 hours each day to give them enough time for them to do their job. It’s also important to keep up with your appointments with Dr. Ang so he can make sure everything is progressing as it should. With this kind of commitment, you’re on your way to achieving the outcome you desire.
Am I Too Old or Too Young for Invisalign?
You’re never too old to have your teeth straightened. In fact, Invisalign was created for adults who didn’t want others to see their metal braces as they underwent orthodontic treatment. As long as your teeth, gums, and jawbone are healthy, there’s no age limit to getting Invisalign.
For our younger patients, we recommend waiting to undergo Invisalign until all of their permanent teeth have come in, which typically happens in the pre-teen to early teen years. Fortunately, we offer Invisalign Teen, which is specially designed to help teens complete their orthodontic treatment.
