Making the decision to undergo orthodontic treatment is a big step, but choosing the type of treatment is a big step, too. There are many types of treatments available, but one of the most popular treatments for teens and adults today is Invisalign. These smooth clear aligners are comfortable and easy to wear, and they are virtually invisible.
Are you a candidate for Invisalign? These questions can help you decide.
1. How bad is your orthodontic problem?
Invisalign is designed to address mild to moderate orthodontic issues. If you have more severe problems, they may not be adequately addressed by clear aligners.
2. How old are you?
Younger patients whose jaws are still growing are not necessarily good candidates for Invisalign. For the best results, your jaw should be finished growing. Teens and adults get the best results from treatment.
3. How committed are you?
Invisalign uses invisible aligners, which are removable, so for the best results, you will need to be fully committed to treatment. If your aligners are not in place at least 20 to 22 hours a day, or at all times unless you are eating, drinking, brushing or flossing, they might not work.
A complete evaluation is needed to determine if you are a candidate. Call our Invisalign provider in Beverly Hills today to find out if Invisalign is right for you.
