Will Invisalign® Work for Me?

Invisalign® has quickly become a popular alternative to traditional braces for a number of reasons: clear plastic aligners rather than bulky metal brackets, easier maintenance for cleaning the teeth, and exceptional results for many patients. Invisalign® can be a good option for many individuals, depending on their individual needs and goals. Common cosmetic concerns that can be addressed with Invisalign® include:

  • Overly crowded teeth: when there is not enough space between the teeth
  • Gapped teeth: when there is extra space that surrounds the teeth
  • Underbite: when the lower teeth rest in front of the upper teeth
  • Overbite: when the upper teeth rest too far in front of the lower teeth
  • Crossbite: when the upper and lower teeth are both misaligned
  • Open bite: when the lower and upper teeth do not meet when the mouth is closed

All of these types of teeth misalignment and bite issues can be significantly improved with Invisalign®. With that in mind, it’s important to note that Invisalign® is typically more ideal for patients who have mild to moderate orthodontic concerns; another technique may be recommended for those with more severe issues. That said, Invisalign® has proven to be effective for a vast range of common orthodontic problems, so the best way to learn if you are a good candidate for treatment with Invisalign® is to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced dentists.
