Invisalign has helped millions of adults straighten their teeth.
Many of these individuals have chosen Invisalign because clear aligners are discreet, effective and affordable.
If you want to straighten your teeth, now is a great time to evaluate whether you qualify as an Invisalign patient.
In addition to having a treatable case, there are a number of other factors to consider if you want to straighten your teeth with Invisalign.
To help you decide, below are 4 things to include in your decision-making process.
Many adults choose Invisalign because of its near invisibility. Once you’re past the teen years, the notion of bright metal braces isn’t too appealing.
For some adults, straightening the teeth without drawing notice is a high priority. Invisalign may be a good choice for your dental problems if you’re in the following set of circumstances…
If any of these descriptions fit you, you may be an ideal candidate for Invisalign.
It’s no secret that regular braces will require extensive flossing and brushing.
Colgate recommends that adults with braces brush their teeth every time they eat, snacks included. This can be very difficult if you lead a busy life.
Consider whether you have the time to clean your teeth after lunch before you hit the office again. If you don’t have time for the extra cleaning, the fact is that you may run the risk of gingivitis.
If you lack the patience to deal with the tricky task of cleaning around metal braces, Invisalign may be your solution. It’s an orthodontic treatment that allows you to pop out your aligners to clean your teeth normally.
Even if you like the idea of straightening your teeth invisibly, you need to consider if you have the discipline to keep your plastic aligner in your mouth.
The blessing that allows you to remove your aligner can also be a curse. If you want to straighten your teeth with Invisalign, you’ll need to forgo the temptation to leave your aligners off when you feel like it.
If you enjoy envisioning an end result long before it occurs, then you may enjoy the Invisalign treatment. MiSmile providers offer something called a ClinCheckⓇ. This animated movie shows you how your teeth will be straightened with Invisalign.
If you feel discouraged about straightening your teeth as an adult, a ClinCheckⓇ can be a great motivator. It’s something that can give you the confidence you need to begin your orthodontic treatment.
If you’re convinced you’re a good candidate for Invisalign, you can locate a MiSmile Invisalign provider to confirm your candidacy and get the process started.
To know what to expect with Invisalign, here are some details from Invisalign to give you an idea.
#1 After you receive confirmation that you qualify, your teeth will receive x-rays, pictures and impressions for your treatment.
#2 After your treatment plan is charted, you’ll receive your customised aligners.
#3 Every two weeks, you’ll change aligners so your teeth become straighter and straighter.
