Maybe you’ve heard that Invisalign is more expensive than clear braces. But actually, when you compare the cost of both treatments, they’re about the same. Plus, Invisalign treatment gives your teeth a benefit most other aligners don’t. Like the one-of-a-kind material that’s flexible for a better fitting feel. To the software that creates a digital roadmap that previews your new smile, the advances that help treatments finish five months faster than average braces. Of, course, both braces and Invisalign can correct a range of faces, from simple to complex. But, an Invisalign treatment is twice as likely to help you with higher self-esteem, now that you can’t put a price on it.
They’re nearly invisible, so you don’t have to walk around with your mouth looking like the grill of a Mack Truck tailgating you down the highway. They’re removable so you can take them out of your mouth when you’re eating, brushing your teeth, or engaging in extracurricular activities. But, are you the right candidate for Invisalign?
Are teens a Candidate for Invisalign? Is it recommended?
Almost every candidate is a good candidate for Invisalign. The amount of research and development that has been put into Invisalign sometimes makes the cases better than traditional braces. As a parent, you’re always concerned about your child losing their aligners. But, Invisalign allows you to have six free aligners replaced with no questions asked. So, it’s really reassuring for the parent to choose Invisalign over traditional braces.
4 Questions a Potential Candidate for Invisalign should ask themselves
How Severe is Your gap?
If your teeth are majorly misaligned, an Invisalign treatment may take a longer time to fix than regular braces. The reason is, patients with large overbites require more advanced orthodontic procedures to fix their misaligned jaw.
Which Dental Problems Can an Invisalign Orthodontist Cure?
If you’re sure you don’t have a severe problem, you’ll be glad to know the conditions Invisalign can fix:
- Crowded Teeth
- Gapped Teeth
At What Age Should you get an Invisalign Treatment done?
Invisalign can be treated on a child as young as 11 or 12. And it really all depends on how their permanent teeth are doing. Some kids even have their permanent teeth by 10. But Invisalign has an amazing teen product. It’s ideal for teenagers.
Why is Invisalign a Great option?
Invisalign is a great treatment option if you’re looking for some flexibility. These clear aligners make a great pick for all those you who’d like a break at least while you’re having your meals. This treatment allows you to remove your aligners when you eat or drink, but you must make sure you have them on for at least 22 hours for an effective alignment. Your orthodontist would also recommend you wear retainers shortly after your braces have done their powerful bit.
Have you Taken a Smile Assessment Test?
An online Smile Assessment Test by Invisalign helps you identify if you’re the right candidate for the treatment. Invisalign likes to ask you some questions to get a better understanding of your primary goal better.
