Is Invisalign Right For Me?

Is Invisalign Right For Me?

Five good reasons to choose Invisalign.

  • Appearance – Invisalign are clear braces that you can barely see, and the person wearing them does not look like they are wearing braces at all. Much more attractive than metal braces.
  • Comfort – You can take out these clear braces when you need to do so.
  • Safety – They reduce damage to your gums and teeth.
  • Length of Treatment – Straighten teeth faster. Takes one to one and one-half years.
  • Knowing what to expect – Dental patients plan their treatment ahead of time on the computer with their dentist, so they know how long it will take and why.

Invisalign aligners are designed from a medical grade plastic. The plastic is of a polyurethane resin…. A clear plastic – not harmful or not carcinogenic.

Five reasons to choose Metal Braces:

  • Strength – the metal is strong when compared to other options. Usually made of stainless steel.
  • Affordable – This brace remains the treatment option that is most affordable.
  • Versatility – Metal can handle the most severe sets of crooked, spaced out, misaligned, and crowded teeth.
  • Variety – Available in different designs and colors.
  • Speed – It is usually faster than any other type brace in straightening teeth.

To decide you need to ask yourself:

  • What is it you want to fix and how severe is it per your dentist?
    • Gapped teeth
    • Overbite
    • Crowded teeth
    • Crossbite
    • Underbite
  • What is your age?
    • Invisalign is great for the older teenager and adults.
  • How determined are you to fix your smile?
    • You must wear the Invisalign 22 hours a day.
  • Have you gone so far as to take Invisalign’s Smile Assessment Test?
    • You only have to give a little information about yourself and what your goals are for your teeth, and the Smile Assessment will tell you if you are a good candidate. But, it will take a dental professional to make the final assessment after looking at your teeth to decide if Invisalign is right for you.
