4 Things That Make Someone A Good Candidate For Invisalign
Invisalign® allows patients with teeth and jaw alignment issues to straighten their smile and gain more confidence. It is most ideal for teenagers and adults who are searching for a more discreet method of teeth straightening. They are also removable and allow patients to eat and care for their teeth and gums as they normally would.
When to consider Invisalign®
While Invisalign® can fix most minor to moderate concerns, they are not always the most ideal solution for severe misalignments. However, they can fix a wide range of issues. The following are four things that may make someone an ideal candidate for Invisalign® treatment.
Crooked teeth are one of the more common reasons patients seek Invisalign® treatment. Teeth might appear crooked for a range of reasons. In some instances, the teeth may overlap one another. At other times they may appear crooked because they simply did not come through in the proper position. Regardless of why they are crooked, individuals with a mild to moderate case of crooked teeth typically make for good Invisalign® candidates, especially those who prefer the freedom and discretion that Invisalign® aligners offer.
Overcrowding is often a more complex issue than crooked teeth as it requires making sure there is enough room in the mouth for teeth to properly move and stay in the ideal alignment. It may involve removing wisdom teeth if they are likely to become an issue in the future, wearing spacers and other preparation methods. However, with Invisalign, dentists can work with patients who have a mild to moderate case of overcrowding to help them achieve the smile of their dreams.
Spacing issues include crowded teeth, but Invisalign® can also help fill in small gaps between teeth as well. In some instances, individuals do not have a real concern with teeth alignment, but their teeth are spaced out too much between one another and leave gaps, which cause many to feel insecure about their smile. Fortunately, Invisalign® is a great way to fix the gaps between teeth and bring teeth into a more attractive position.
Underbites & overbites
Invisalign® can fix minor bite complications as well. Some patients are more interested in correcting the alignment of their jaw rather than their teeth, and Invisalign® can improve jaw position as well as teeth alignment. While a severe case of underbite or overbite may require braces or surgery, Invisalign® can treat most cases of a mild to moderate bite issue. Invisalign® is also a way to correct crossbites as well. The best way to determine if Invisalign® can help improve jaw alignment is to arrange a consultation with a dentist.
