Invisalign® has transformed orthodontics by offering patients a more subtle, more convenient way to straighten their teeth. If you’re thinking about getting Invisalign clear aligners, there are a few points you should consider first to make sure you’re a good candidate and will enjoy a successful, effective treatment. Read on to learn more.

Level of Teeth Misalignment

In general, Invisalign can be used to correct the same issues as other orthodontic treatments like gaps, crowding, and crooked teeth. The concern is when there are severe misalignment issues like a major overbite or underbite. In those cases, Invisalign may not be able to take you all the way to the results that you want.

Level of Commitment

One of the big advantages of Invisalign is that the aligners can be removed for easy eating and brushing. This is convenient but it also means that it’s on you to remain committed to your procedure. You may feel tempted to leave your Invisalign trays out for longer than you’re supposed to. This will just set your treatment back in the long run. You need to wear your aligners for 22 hours of the day for them to be effective. If you don’t think you’ll be able to remember to wear the trays or keep up with this commitment, you may want to consider alternatives to Invisalign.

Invisalign Assessment

Another way to get an idea of whether or not you’re a good candidate for Invisalign is to use their own smile assessment. You can find the handy online tool on their website. Just go through their few simple questions and then you’ll receive your results.
