Is Invisalign® the Right Option for My Smile?

Posted .

If you’re interested in aligning your smile, you might be interested in doing so with Invisalign®. Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that involves the use of clear, plastic aligners that shift and move the teeth throughout time. It is a virtually invisible process that can help you maintain the beauty of your smile. To help you find out if Invisalign is right for you, our orthodontist, Dr. Don Niu, is happy to list the situations that are right for this type of treatment.

The first situation is if you would like to align your teeth but you don’t want to do so with metal braces. Metal braces are a noticeable appliance that involves having metal brackets cemented to the front surfaces of your teeth and those brackets being connected with a metal wire. Invisalign is a virtually invisible process that involves using clear, plastic aligners to straighten the teeth.

The second situation is when you have the orthodontic problems that can be treated with Invisalign. Fortunately, there are many problems Invisalign can treat, like an overbite, underbite, and cross bite. It can also treat widely spaced teeth and overly crowded teeth. However, Invisalign usually isn’t recommended for more severe alignment and developmental problems.
