Are You A Good Candidate For Invisalign?

Invisalign is ultimate choice for those who would prefer to not have unsightly metal braces and complete treatment quicly. So who exactly is the ideal candidate for Invisalign? Let’s find out!

You’re Unhappy with Your Smile

If you don’t like the appearance of your smile, these invisible braces may be an easy fix. No more closed-mouth smile. Invisalign can boost your confidence and help keep your best smile forward.

You Have a Straightforward Case

Most cases are straightforward. However, there can be complications, and you may require additional treatments before choosing Invisalign. Otherwise, Invisalign is great for mild to moderate concerns like:

  • Crossbites
  • Crowded teeth
  • Gaps
  • General straightening
  • Open bites
  • Overbites
  • Underbites

You Have Had Braces Before

If you’ve had braces before, but your teeth are returning to the pre-braces state, you may be able to undergo an Invisalign corrective treatment.

You Don’t Want Braces

Traditional braces are clunky, painful, cause bleeding, and are more restrictive restrictive than Invisalign. While there’s no painless dental treatment, Invisalign is just better compared to metal braces when it comes to inconvenience and comfort. So, if you’d want to skip that route, call us at (312) 642-1014 to schedule your Invisalign consultation.

You’re Disciplined

Since Invisalign trays need to stay put on your teeth for a specific time period every day, you must be disciplined with the process. If you can remain committed to the routine, you’re an ideal candidate for Invisalign. People who wear and remove their Invisalign trays at their convenience don’t go far with the results.

Your Oral Hygiene Is Good

To be able to use Invisalign aligners, you must follow good oral hygiene practices. Your mouth must be healthy and free from infections or diseases. You must also be able to care for your Invisalign trays and follow the care your dentist recommends.

You Have All Your Adult Teeth

Unless you have all your adult teeth, you won’t be treated for such cosmetic work. It’s difficult to predict how those baby teeth would grow. The jawbone is also malleable and keeps developing until early adulthood. So, getting Invisalign when you have all your adult teeth and probably in and after your teenage years will be most beneficial. However, talk to a specialist for better advice on your case.

You Don’t Smoke

Smoking is already unhealthy for your teeth, let alone your Invisalign aligners. So, if you don’t smoke, your Invisalign trays will stay intact and clean. Smoking can interfere with the functioning of the tray.
