Is Invisalign Right For My Smile?

Invisalign is a great solution for people that want to straighten their teeth without the typical problems of dental braces. Sometimes Invisalign is not the right fit for everyone’s smile. 

If you have a more serious case that involves some of the below conditions your dentist in our Elk Grove office may not recommend Invisalign for patients in the following situations:

  • Odd tooth shape having round or short teeth may not be able to align properly in Invisalign
  • Gapped or crowded teeth Invisalign does not put enough force to straighten overcrowded or misaligned teeth
  • Dental bridge due to bridges being connected to your teeth it is difficult for the aligners to shift your teeth
  • Misaligned jaws Invisalign are not made to help improve your jaw position or bite into alignment

If you are a good candidate for Invisalign , this orthodontic treatment can gradually and gently shift your teeth so they become perfectly spaced and aligned in your mouth. When it comes to orthodontics, More adults than teenage patients have Invisalign due to the discipline of caring and wearing their aligners and their teeth are already grown in. Invisalign is acclaimed for being an effective and comfortable treatment.

Not only is Invisalign a treatment that looks good while correcting your smile, it is an easy, no-hassle option. Flossing with Invisalign, for example, is much easier than with metal braces. Obviously, you just remove the invisalign and floss like normal while with metal braces there is a little more strategy involved. Not to mention, you get to remove your Invisalign before eating so there is never an issue of food getting stuck in your aligners, unlike when dealing with metal braces.

There are so many reasons why our Invisalign treatment may be better for you than metal braces, but it ultimately comes down to your decision and what fits your lifestyle best.
