Will Invisalign® Work for Me?


Invisalign® is one of the most popular options available for individuals who would like to straighten their teeth and correct common orthodontic issues. These clear, plastic aligners involve no metal wires or brackets and can help patients achieve a beautiful new smile in a more discreet and comfortable way. With the many benefits offered by Invisalign®, you may be wondering whether this treatment is the best option for your needs. Fortunately, many people are good candidates for this orthodontic procedure.

Ideal candidates for Invisalign® are typically those who have spaces and gaps between the teeth, teeth crowding, and/or other general misalignment concerns. Invisalign® can also help patients suffering from bite issues such as overbite, crossbite, underbite, or open bite. This advanced orthodontic technique can even be an effective part of treatment for TMJ Disorder in patients who also have a misaligned bite. On the other hand, Invisalign® is often most useful for correcting mild to moderate concerns, and may not be the best option for patients who are diagnosed with severe orthodontic issues. In those cases, another technique may be recommended; however, our cosmetic dentists have found that Invisalign® is able to fix a broad range of common teeth misalignment and bite issues. Once we meet with you for an initial consultation and oral evaluation, we can determine whether Invisalign® is the right treatment for your unique needs.
