Who is Invisalign right for?

Apr 28, 2022

You probably have seen many ads for Perth Invisalign. You may have wondered if you would benefit from this product. The best way to know is to discuss it with your dental clinic. You can generally expect the answer to be yes.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a discrete method to correct various imperfections in the alignment of your mouth. This includes overbites, underbites, gaps, crooked teeth and even gaps. However, there are some people who are not good candidates.

Who is a good candidate for Invisalign?

For some, the more traditional braces might be better. That is generally when the misalignment involves the jawbone or other skeletal issues. There are some other factors that your dentist will consider as recommendations progress.

  • Compliance with the regimen of keeping the trays in the mouth for at least 20 to 22 hours daily. They can come out to eat and brush but should be replaced immediately. If the patient delays in returning the tray to the mouth or doesn’t wear it through the night, the process will be extended, or the teeth will never move into the proper place.
  • Age. Older teens and adults are more motivated to follow the guidelines. Younger teens and tweens are less likely to comply, and traditional braces work better. Younger children are not good candidates because their teeth are still forming.
  • Price. Invisalign is more expensive than other forms of braces.
