Many patients wonder if Invisalign treatment is an option for them. They have heard great things about the process but are unsure if they will be a suitable candidate. Invisalign can be used to correct the majority of issues with crooked teeth. This includes overbites, underbites, crossbites, crowding, and gappy teeth. There are certain severe orthodontic cases where Invisalign aligners may not be suitable. However, the vast majority of patients can enjoy the benefits of Invisalign.
During our free invisible orthodontic consultations, patients can discover whether they are eligible for Invisalign treatment. While Invisalign can offer many diverse solutions, severe bite problems will most likely need more comprehensive treatment. This type of extensive treatment usually requires 18-24 months to complete and requires a traditional fixed brace.
For Invisalign treatment to work well, it is essential that patients wear their aligners for 20-22 hours a day and attend for 6-week reviews. Invisalign requires fewer visits, in comparison to fixed braces, therefore, saving patients time and money. Not to mention the convenience of the device being removable.
Invisalign can provide patients with 3-dimensional Clincheck videos showing before and after predictions. Clincheck is exclusive to Invisalign aligners and takes place before treatment begins. At this stage, the patient has no obligation to go through with the procedure and can walk away if they so wish.
Once the Clincheck videos are approved by the patient, Invisalign construct the full set of aligners based on the generated digital plan. When the aligners arrive at the practice the treatment commences with our specially trained dentists. Patients should ensure that they follow instructions and guidance at all times to achieve the best possible results.
