Invisalign vs. Braces
who is a Candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign is usually appropriate for patients who have minor or moderate orthodontic issues. It can be used to treat most gaps between the smile, slightly crooked and crowded teeth, uneven teeth, and even some bite alignment problems.
However, it is not intended to correct major bite alignment problems and other orthodontic issues. To qualify for Invisalign, your teeth must be strong and healthy, and your mouth must be free of oral health issues like decay and gum disease. To find out if you’re a candidate, schedule a consultation with Dr. Molly Hottenstein today.
What to Expect
The Invisalign Process
After Dr. Molly approves you for treatment, she will work with Invisalign to develop your treatment plan based on digital scans and x-rays taken during your initial consultation. Your first several sets of aligners will arrive at our office in a few weeks, and you’ll come in to pick them up.
You’ll wear your aligners for 20-22+ hours per day for about 2 weeks. About every 2 weeks, you’ll switch to a new set of aligners. Every 8-10 weeks, you’ll come back to our office for a brief checkup to get your next several sets of aligners. This process will continue until your treatment is complete.
Making the Right Choice
The Benefits of Invisalign
Discreet- Invisalign is nearly invisible when worn and does not affect speech, so it’s a more subtle method of correcting your smile.
Removable- Because you can remove your aligners, you’ll be able to brush and floss more easily than with traditional braces. Plus, there are no dietary restrictions.
Comfortable- Invisalign is usually more comfortable than braces, since there are no metal components to poke or irritate your mouth, and it exerts more even and gentle pressure to correct your smile.
