Are You the Right Candidate for Invisalign?

Invisalign BracesFind out If Your Adult Smile Could Benefit from This Clear Orthodontic Retainer System.

A straighter smile can be yours no matter what your age is. Sure, you might associate braces with children or teens, but more and more adults are getting braces as well. Of course, some adults are still hesitant to wear the traditional metal brackets and wires, which is why clear braces are now available and very popular. After all, just because you have to get braces doesn’t mean the whole world needs to see them. Look below to learn if you are likely to qualify for Invisalign, and make sure to call the dentists at Worthington Advanced Dentistry of Fairfield, CT, for a consultation once you've finished reading!

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a dental system that uses customized transparent trays made from a medical-grade plastic that covers your teeth in order to fix common issues such as crowding, gaps between teeth, overbites, and underbites. As with any dental treatment, though there are certain factors that can determine whether or not Invisalign is the best option for getting you a straighter smile. The most common of these considerations are listed below.

Your Dental Issues

The most obvious factor has to do with the dental problems you want to have fixed. While Invisalign can handle a host of issues, tooth or jaw movements that are more complex may be more effectively treated with traditional braces. When you come in for a consultation at our Fairfield office, this is something our dentists will be able to determine right away.

Your Age

While you are never too old to get Invisalign you can actually be too young. The teeth of children and young teens are still growing rapidly, which means that these custom aligners won’t fit the way they need to in order to be effective. This means that Invisalign is really only ideal for older teens and adults.
