What is Invisalign and who is a candidate?
Invisalign is ideal for teens and adults of any age who would like to straighten their teeth without wearing braces. It works well for cases of misalignment, bruxism (grinding), and orthodontic relapse, which means you may have undergone orthodontics previously but your teeth have moved or shifted. In many relapse cases, Invisalign treatment is often shorter than initial treatment was.
Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to straighten your teeth instead of braces. Aligners fit snugly and are virtually invisible; they can also be easily removed for eating and oral hygiene. You’ll wear your aligners 20 to 22 hours per day and change them every two weeks. Aligners are comfortable and easy to wear, and you'll find that they don't interfere with your daily activities.
Who is a candidate for Invisalign?
Dr. Gentry can determine whether Invisalign is right for your needs during a consultation in which she will take photos, x-rays, and models of your teeth. If Invisalign is not right for you, we're happy to discuss other options that will help you achieve your goals for your smile.
