Who Is a Good Candidate for Invisalign®?

There are good reasons for the rising popularity of Invisalign aligners. Nowadays, most teens and adults would prefer to fix their misaligned teeth without the cumbersome and unattractive look of traditional metal braces. Did you know that Invisalign® aligners can provide the same results as those provided by traditional braces?




Do You Place Emphasis on Your Smile? 



According to one study, almost 50 percent of participants said that they would not go on a second date with an individual who neglects his or her teeth. Likewise, more than half of the participants felt that unattractive teeth were a big liability during a job interview. If you have these dental problems, these are two strikes against you from the word go. 


If you are like most people in the U.S., you care about first impressions. Few things can leave a bad impression than an ugly or unattractive smile. Fortunately, Invisalign aligners are an easy fix for misaligned teeth and an unattractive smile. 




What Are Invisalign Aligners?



Do you have crowded, gapped, or crooked teeth? Are you looking for ways to get a straighter and more appealing smile? If so, the Invisalign treatment is one of the most popular and effective solutions. It is a great alternative to traditional metal braces since it is comfortable, discreet, and quite effective. 




What Dental Conditions Can Invisalign Treat?



This is one of the most innovative teeth straightening approaches. Also, Invisalign aligners are effective in dealing with a wide range of mild and complex dental conditions, such as:
 

  • Gaps.
     

  • Teeth misalignment.
     

  • Overly crowded teeth.
     

  • Crossbite, overbite, open bite, and underbite.




Are You a Good Candidate for Invisalign?



Invisalign aligners cannot treat some orthodontic conditions. Some of these include a large underbite, dramatic overbite, and certain severe orthodontic problems. For such dental problems, traditional metal braces may be the only or better option. To determine whether Invisalign aligners are a suitable option for you, have your dentist examine your teeth and consider several factors.




What Characteristics Make You a Good Candidate for Invisalign?



To be a good candidate for this treatment, you should not have a serious dental problem requiring advanced treatment procedures. Also, you should be willing to follow your dentist’s instructions and stick to the guidelines. 


Also, adults and older teens tend to be good candidates for Invisalign aligners. You need to understand that age can play an important role. This treatment is ideal for older teens and adults because of the responsibility required. For younger patients, traditional braces are often the better option. That said, each situation and patient is different. 


Adults and older teens are ideal candidates because they are better able to follow strict instructions. You need to wear Invisalign aligners for at least 22 hours per day and change them on schedule. Younger individuals may forget to switch or remove them as scheduled. Additionally, they are more likely to lose them, leading to problems. 




Other Considerations



The things you like to do or activities you engage in often will determine whether you are a good candidate for Invisalign. This treatment may be good for you if you engage in full-contact sports, do a lot of public speaking, or lead a busy life.
