Who are candidates for Invisalign® clear teeth aligners?
Invisalign®removable teeth aligners can be a comfortable alternative to traditional braces composed of wire and brackets. Invisalign®’s clear and transparent material can benefit patients who do not want others to know they are undergoing orthodontic treatment, as well as those searching for a way to straighten their teeth without the hassle and discomfort associated with other orthodontic procedures.
Patients with crowded or misaligned teeth are often good candidates for Invisalign®. During your initial consultation, cosmetic dentist Kevin Sands, DDS will determine if this treatment is the best option for your unique needs. Invisalign® can help patients who are experiencing a variety of orthodontic problems, including:
- Crowded teeth due to a lack of extra jaw space
- Gaps due to missing teeth and gum problems
- An underbite or overbite due to the jaws growing disproportionately to one another
- Crossbite due to both jaws being misaligned
It may take up to 12 months or longer for your teeth to be properly aligned, depending on your Invisalign® treatment plan. However, if you would like to transform your smile immediately, you can consult with Dr. Sands about trying a faster alternative. Porcelain veneers may be a suitable choice for some patients since they can instantly hide stained, chipped or misaligned teeth within a durable, natural-looking ceramic shell. Dr. Sands will talk with you about all of your options and suggest treatments that can best meet your needs.
