Will Invisalign Work for You?

If you've recently learned about the invisible brace option known as Invisalign, then it's likely that you're online looking for Invisalign near me. While this may seem like a clear alternative to metal braces, it's essential to understand when Invisalign will and won't work for you.

This clear brace option is effective at treating mild to moderate:

  • Crossbite
  • Underbite
  • Overbite
  • Crowded teeth
  • Gapped teeth

These invisible braces are not recommended for patients who have severe teeth alignment issues. They're also not recommended for patients who smoke on a regular basis. It's best to consult Dr. Doan or Dr. Lee to determine if you are a good candidate for this metal brace alternative.

With this clear straightening option, you can effortlessly change the alignment of your teeth over a period of six to 18 months. Each patient's experience is going to be different from the next. For example, one patient may have their teeth move closer together more quickly than another patient.

Additionally, the amount of movement required out of your teeth to get to their ideal position will play a large role in how long you'll need to wear these clear aligner trays. During your consultation with Dr. Doan or Dr. Lee, you can get an estimation of how long you can expect to use these aligner trays until you reach the ultimate smile that you desire.

The Various Benefits of Invisalign

Probably the most significant benefit that you can obtain from using this clear brace option is that it won't be noticeable to other people. One of the biggest drawbacks of metal braces is their bulky and awkward look. With these clear braces, you'll never have to worry about bulky metal in your mouth.

Another great benefit of clear braces is that these trays can be easily removed. When it comes to eating or brushing, you don't have to fiddle around with getting your brush stuck in your braces. You won't even have to worry about the foods or drinks that you consume because you can easily take the trays out when you eat.

With this clear brace option, you also won't have to worry about visiting our office often to undergo adjustments. Rather, you'll be sent new brace trays every few weeks that will slowly move your teeth into their ideal position. This will save you both time and money in travel.
