Invisalign Candidates

Invisalign CandidatesInvisalign is a newer orthodontic treatment that has drawn many patients with its comfort and low profile. Although Invisalign is not the best option for every individual, many patients will find that Invisalign meets their needs well. Below is a look at candidacy for this treatment.

Treatment Requirements

Most, but not all, bite irregularities can be corrected using Invisalign. Most cases of overbite, underbite, crossbite, gaps, and overcrowding do respond to Invisalign. Vertical repositioning of teeth is one example of what Invisalign cannot do. For patients with gum disease or cavities, treatment may be required before starting Invisalign.

Age Range

Invisalign now offers multiple treatment options: Full, Express, and Teen. Whereas Invisalign Full is for adults and some teens over age seventeen, Express is for adults with very minimal corrective needs. The Teen treatment is for adolescents whose teeth and jaws are still developing. Invisalign does not currently offer an option for children.

Appreciation for Benefits

Good candidates for Invisalign include those who not only have these certain orthodontic issues described above, but who are able to practice initiative throughout treatment. Invisalign requires patient responsibility when it comes to the amount of time the aligners are worn. Those who cannot commit to wearing the aligners for twenty hours a day may be a better fit for a different, more permanent appliance.
If you are thinking about choosing Invisalign, the information here may help shed some light on whether you might be a candidate. You can schedule a consultation with our Invisalign provider to better understand if this treatment is right for you.
