Is Invisalign Suitable for Everyone?

Invisalign has changed the way teeth are straightened.

This modern orthodontic solution has redefined the way we at Princess Elizabeth Dental in Edmonton approach teeth straightening, because, unlike traditional braces which rely on metal brackets and wires, Invisalign are clear, custom-made aligners that move teeth gradually and discreetly into their desired positions.

Invisalign aligners are crafted from a smooth, virtually invisible plastic material, making them a popular choice among patients who value aesthetics and discretion during their teeth straightening journey. Each set of aligners is precisely tailored to your unique dental structure, ensuring a comfortable and effective fit.

But the magic of Invisalign extends beyond its appearance. Invisalign offers numerous benefits, such as enhanced comfort, convenience, and flexibility in your daily life. It’s no wonder that many of our patients are curious about whether Invisalign could be the answer they are looking for.

So, let’s answer a few of your concerns:

Who is Invisalign Suitable for?

  • Orthodontic Versatility: Invisalign is fantastic for those with mild to moderate dental misalignment. Its versatility makes it an excellent choice for many patients seeking orthodontic correction.
  • Tailored for Teens: Invisalign is great for active teens and can accommodate their active lifestyles while providing discreet and effective orthodontic treatment.
  • Adult-Friendly Convenience: Adults with demanding schedules appreciate Invisalign’s flexibility. The removable aligners simplify oral hygiene and adapt seamlessly to personal and professional commitments.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: Invisalign’s clear aligners are a welcome alternative for those averse to traditional braces. They offer a discreet solution as they’re virtually invisible, so no one needs to know you’re on a smile transformation journey.
  • Dining without Restrictions: The ability to remove Invisalign aligners during meals allows you to enjoy your favourite foods without the dietary restrictions imposed by fixed braces.

Who Cannot Use Invisalign?

  • Complex Orthodontic Cases: Invisalign may not be suitable for highly intricate orthodontic issues. Our dentists at Princess Elizabeth Dental will evaluate your case to determine the best treatment.
  • Early Age Considerations: Very young children who have yet to develop all their permanent teeth may not be candidates for Invisalign.
  • Discipline Requirement: Successful Invisalign treatment hinges on patient compliance. For patients who struggle with discipline, Invisalign may not be the best choice as you need to wear the aligners for at least 20-22 hours a day to see results.
  • Prior Dental Health Concerns: Pre-existing dental conditions, such as severe gum disease, must be addressed before commencing Invisalign treatment to ensure the best results.
  • Financial Evaluation: Invisalign is an investment in your dental health and aesthetics. It might not be suitable for everyone’s budget, so it’s important to discuss your payment options with us.

The best thing about Invisalign is the freedom to enhance your smile discreetly and effectively enabling you to continue with your lifestyle without any obvious changes. You can eat what you like, maintain your oral hygiene and experience greater treatment visibility and easier planning with our treatment software.

Invisalign offers not just dental correction but also the empowerment to continue living your life to the fullest, all while working towards that stunning, confident smile you’ve always wanted.
