5 Questions to Ask Your Orthodontist about Invisalign

5 Questions to Ask Your Orthodontist about InvisalignWith Invisalign growing in popularity, the number of questions about these invisible braces have also increased. Thankfully, we’ve taken the time to answer some of your most asked questions.

What Kind Of Orthodontic Issues Can Invisalign Correct?

Invisalign is able to solve several of the same dental issues as traditional braces, but not all of them. Depending on how much correction your teeth and jaw may need, Invisalign might not be enough. In order to know if Invisalign is right for your unique alignment needs, you will need to consult with an orthodontist.

How Long Will My Invisalign Treatment Last For?

While the average length for traditional braces and Invisalign are around the same, a lot of factors can influence this including age and the amount of dental correction and realignment needed. You will need to keep up with regular visits to ensure you get any adjustments or new trays that you may need throughout your treatment.

Will Invisalign Still Work If I Am An Adult?

Several adults choose to straighten their smiles later in life. In fact, around one quarter of all orthodontic patients are adults. While you could choose to have traditional braces, Invisalign is an ‘invisible’ and more comfortable option.

Do I Need Invisalign If My Teeth Don’t Look Crooked?

When it comes to the proper alignment of the teeth, appearance isn’t the only factor involved. Your teeth and jaw need to be team in order to keep your mouth healthy. So if your front teeth appear perfectly straight, but your back teeth aren’t properly straightened, it could lead to some serious issues and harm the alignment of the rest of your teeth.

What Are The Signs Of Poor Teeth Alignment?

As mentioned before, the signs of poor teeth alignment aren’t always easy to see. Signs that your teeth may not be aligned correctly can include:

  • jaw pain
  • over or underbite
  • protrusion or crowding of teeth
  • extra or uneven spaces between teeth
  • difficulty with brushing or flossing
