Who Should Consider Invisalign®?

When you’re interested in finding out more about whether or not Invisalign is an option for your orthodontics treatment, please call The Smile Centre in Venice or Sarasota to schedule a consultation with one of our Florida dentists.

Invisalign® may be a wonderful treatment for patients for whom cosmetics is the greatest concern. That's because Invisalign® orthodontic trays only address crooked teeth and not more complex issues involving jaw movement or gum health.

Here are the cosmetic dentistry issues that Invisalign® is well-suited to treat:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Under bite
  • Overbite
  • Cross bite
  • Gapped teeth

There are a few prerequisites to determining whether or not Invisalign® trays may be right for you. If you're considering an Invisalign® treatment from The Smile Center in Venice or Sarasota, ask yourself:

Invisalign® Candidacy Question No. 1: Are your teeth and gums basically healthy?

Invisalign® Candidacy Question No. 2: Will you be able to wear the Invisalign® trays for most of the day, including at night? It is generally recommended that the trays stay in for 22 hours each day.

Invisalign® Candidacy Question No. 3: Are your teeth fully grown?

Invisalign® Candidacy Question No. 4: Are you a smoker? If so, Invisalign may be unappealing as smoking can taint the color of the trays.

Invisalign® is certainly a good option for people who feel uncomfortable with the idea of traditional braces. People who prefer Invisalign® trays over braces also tend to appreciate the flexibility of being able to remove the trays before eating as well as for more thorough brushing and flossing.

Adolescents and teenagers who may be interested in Invisalign® should come into The Smile Centre for an orthodontics consultation in order to determine whether or not this is a viable treatment option.

If you are struggling with advanced gum disease, tooth or bone loss, or jaw pain, your Venice or Sarasota dentist may opt for orthodontic treatment alternatives to Invisalign®, or include "clear braces" as part of a larger dental health strategy.
