Who is a Good Candidate for Invisalign?

When it comes to straightening your smile, the dental world has come a long way from bulky, uncomfortable metal braces. In fact, today’s Invisalign Clear Aligners are not only fast and comfortable, but discreet! A far cry from traditional braces.

Perhaps you are considering Invisalign but are not sure if you are a candidate. Read on to learn more.

Who is an ideal candidate for Invisalign?

Unlike braces, Invisalign is comprised of clear trays that are designed to shift the teeth over time. The trays can be removed while eating and they are changed every few weeks as your teeth move until the final position is achieved.

Invisalign is ideal for older teens and adults alike. But children are not the best candidates as their teeth and mouths are not fully grown.

If you appreciate the transparency of Invisalign, then it could be right for you. However, it is important to note that there is a level of dedication required. Invisalign, though removable, must be work 22 hours per day. Further, you must be able to visit Dr. Milan every two to three weeks for new aligners. If not, your teeth will not shift at the proper rate.

However, if you are committed to achieving a gorgeous, straight smile in as little as a few months to two years, in a discreet fashion, then you may be a great candidate for Invisalign. A consultation can determine more.
