Not many people grow up to have perfectly straight teeth and this can easily affect a person’s self-esteem and confidence. In the past, your only option for straightening your smile was with bulky metal braces that were left on for months or even years at a time. For this reason, many people are switching over to Invisalign for a more invisible way to straighten their smile for life.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a series of clear plastic aligners that are used to apply pressure to teeth and correct misalignment and overcrowding problems. Because the plastic trays are totally clear, they are virtually invisible to the naked eye and can be easily removed for eating and hygiene purposes.
Who is a good candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign offers many benefits and can be a wonderfully inconspicuous way to achieve a perfect smile. Any patient of any age is a viable candidate for this particular orthodontic procedure, but an exam and series of x-rays will be performed to ensure that Invisalign is right for you. Patients with severe orthodontic problems may need other work done before Invisalign can be used. Some of the best candidates for Invisalign include:
- Patients with overcrowding and misalignment problems
- Patients who do not want bulky metal braces
- Adults who need orthodontic work but don’t want traditional braces
- Patients who want to be able to remove their orthodontics for certain events or daily hygiene needs
