A straight smile can be yours, and best of all, it won’t take you up to two years to get you there. With invisible braces, you can have a straighter smile in less time.
Dr. Ivan Valcarenghi is a licensed and preferred Invisalign® provider who has the experience to determine if you are a good candidate for invisible braces and the clear alternative to traditional wires and brackets, Invisalign®.
Invisalign® clear braces may be the best choice if you have a crooked smile. However, some are better suited to traditional wires and brackets. According to Dr. Ivan Smiles, there are some things to consider when it comes to being a good candidate for Invisalign® clear plastic aligners.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If you have healthy teeth and gums that are free from decay and disease, you could be a good candidate for clear braces as healthy teeth and healthy gums will give you a strong base that will help the Invisalign® system work.
More Serious Dental Issues
Another reason you may not be suitable for Invisalign® is dental issues. If you have an under bite or overbite, Dr. Valcarenghi may recommend conventional braces.
Strong Self Discipline
Clear braces must be worn 20 to 22 hours each day. The clear plastic aligners are removed for eating, brushing, and flossing, but you must be diligent when it comes to how long you wear the aligners. Being less than diligent can slow results.
You may be a good candidate if you:
- Have chipped teeth
- Have crooked teeth
- Have rotated teeth
- Have a space between your teeth
Invisalign can give you a new smile in an average of 12 to 18 months. However, some patients can achieve the grin of their dreams in as little as 6 months.
