Will Invisalign work for you? Yes, for most people, that is. Whether you’re just looking to be more confident in your smile, or have a specifically tough orthodontic issue, or perhaps you’re a teenager whose teeth are still not finished growing in, chances are that Invisalign might work for you.
To be 100% certain, however, a thorough evaluation of your orthodontic issues must be performed by one of our dentists here at Horizon Dental Care in our Hanover, MD, Baltimore, MD, Clinton, MD, or La Plata, MD, office to determine your candidacy for Invisalign.
What Orthodontic Issues Can Invisalign Fix?
The Invisalign orthodontic system can be utilized for corrective a multitude of orthodontic issues, from simple misalignment to more severe issues, which include the following:
- Gapped teeth
- Crowded to overlapping teeth
- Open bite
Even and straight teeth also translate to healthier gums, which means that aside from resolving your orthodontic concerns, you’ll also improve your oral health.
Until you consult with your dentist in our Hanover, MD, Baltimore, MD, Clinton, MD, or La Plata, MD, office, to determine if you qualify for Invisalign, here are some factors to consider that might not make you a good fit for the treatment:
- Kids who are simply too young to strictly follow the required steps for wearing and caring for Invisalign aligners.
- People who smoke tobacco products and are unwilling or unable to quit the habit while undergoing Invisalign treatment are not usually ideal candidates. The reason for this is that smoking leads to the aligners’ discoloration, not to mention all the filthy byproducts that it releases in the mouth.
- Individuals who might not have the drive to wear Invisalign aligners for the prescribed time each day, which is usually between 20 to 22 hours. Failing to wear the aligners for the recommended amount of time daily will prolong the treatment time and, in some cases, lead to costly mid-course treatments to even out the treatment plan.
