Invisalign is a popular choice in most orthodontic offices today. With most patients we see, we expect them to ask about this unique appliance. While it is not the ideal option for patients with severe orthodontic irregularities, it is available for most patients. If you are curious about whether Invisalign could help your smile, here is a look at the patients who tend to opt for this choice.
As stated above, Invisalign can be beneficial for most patients. This includes those with minor to moderate orthodontic flaws. Patients with more severe irregularities are best treated with a more traditional style of appliance. If your smile features simple cases of crooked teeth, spacing issues, and/or bite malocclusions, you may be able to opt for Invisalign.
Patients who choose Invisalign tend to be those who highly value their appearance. This can include younger and older patients, alike. Students may wish to avoid the social stigma of braces among their peers, while adults may wish to maintain a professional, mature appearance in the workplace.
It is important for patients to be able to keep track of their appliance, as it is removable, as well as monitor how long it is being worn on a day to day basis. A lack of responsibility in this area can result in longer treatment time.
