Am I An Invisalign Candidate?

Orthodontist serving Stapleton, Denver, Cherry Creek & Nearby Areas of Colorado

If you have crooked teeth or if you have problems with your bite, Invisalign might be a good option for you. Invisalign is a treatment option that can fix many of the same problems as braces, however Invisalign is a treatment that utilizes clear, plastic aligner trays to straighten teeth instead of metal braces. These aligner trays are removable and invisible, making Invisalign a desirable option for people with reservations about the look or feel of traditional braces. Invisalign treats a number of dental issues including:

  • Crooked or twisted teeth
  • Overbite or underbite
  • Gaps in teeth
  • Overcrowding of teeth

If your smile suffers from any of these problems, Invisalign might be the treatment option for you. You might be a good candidate for Invisalign if you have:

  • Healthy teeth and gums
  • No tooth decay
  • Crooked teeth
  • Overcrowding
  • Gaps in your teeth
  • A slight overbite or underbite

If you think you might be a good candidate for Invisalign, you also have to be committed and ready to wear the aligner trays for the majority of the day in order for the treatment to properly work. Although the trays can be removed, it is necessary to wear them most of the time to get the desired results.

Some conditions may be better treated with traditional metal braces. A severe overbite or underbite that significantly affects your jaw can make traditional braces a more viable treatment to fully correct your smile.
