Are You A Good Candidate for the Invisalign System?
If you want orthodontic treatment but are hesitant to wear traditional braces , the Invisalign system could be right for you. These clear, plastic aligners deliver the same results as braces but are virtually invisible. Invisalign can be a great choice, but is it the right treatment for you? Here are some signs that you are a good candidate for Invisalign.
You Have Minor to Moderate Bite Problems
Invisalign is ideal for treating a variety of orthodontic problems, ranging from mild to moderate. Some of the conditions Invisalign is best suited to address include gapped teeth, overbites, underbites, excessive crowding, and open bites. Occasionally, some malocclusions are better treated with traditional braces. In these cases, Incognito braces may be a better choice. Your orthodontist will evaluate your bite issues and determine if Invisalign is the best treatment.
You Don’t Want to Change Your Oral Health Routine
A common complaint about traditional braces is that they make brushing and flossing more complicated and time-consuming. With Invisalign, you can remove your aligners so you can brush and floss as normal. That means that when your treatment is complete, you don’t run the risks of staining and decay that sometimes plague patients with braces.
You Want Fewer Orthodontic Appointments
Whether you have braces or Invisalign, regular visits with your orthodontist are important. During these appointments, your orthodontist tracks your progress and makes adjustments to make sure you keep moving toward your treatment goals. However, with Invisalign, you need fewer check-ups because your aligners don’t need to be tightened. If you have a packed schedule, this advantage can be a significant timesaver.
