Who’s a Good Candidate for Invisalign?
Crooked teeth not only affect your confidence and how you feel about your smile, but they also negatively impact your oral health by making it harder to remove plaque or potentially damaging your teeth over time.
Invisalign is a great option for teens and adults seeking to improve the appearance of their teeth. We can assess your misalignments and determine if the Invisalign system is right for your smile-improvement needs. This might include:
- Straightening crooked teeth.
- Realigning an overbite, underbite or crossbite that’s wearing down your teeth or making it hard to chew.
- Closing gaps between the teeth that could increase your risk of gum disease.
- Opening the space between overlapping, difficult-to-brush teeth.
The effectiveness of Invisalign depends on the extent of the adjustments that need to be made. Also, a good Invisalign candidate will have the discipline needed in order to not remove the aligners more than necessary or forget to put them in, as this might ultimately lead to a longer treatment time. (In other words, patients who are especially young might not be suited for Invisalign.)
The Invisalign Process
We’ll take impressions of your teeth and use them to create a number of alignment trays depending on your needs. Your trays will be worn for 20 to 22 hours each day. Every two weeks, you’ll switch out one set of Invisalign aligners for the next in your custom-made series. Every six weeks or so, you’ll visit our office so that we can make sure that the treatment is proceeding as scheduled; sometimes we might find that you’ll need to wear an aligner for longer than normal.
It can take between twelve to twenty-four months to get the full benefit of Invisalign, and the professionals at Ridgefield Perfect Smile Center will take care of you every step of the way!
