Invisalign has become an increasingly popular alternative to traditional braces in recent years. This orthodontics treatment uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gradually shift your teeth to their desired position. Invisalign is particularly popular among adults who would like to avoid the unsightliness of metal braces.
However, it’s important to understand that Invisalign isn’t the right treatment option for all orthodontics patients. During your initial consultation at our Boulder dental office, Dr. Adler will examine the alignment of your teeth to determine whether Invisalign will be the most effective solution for your unique oral health needs.
In general, ideal Invisalign candidates:
- Have healthy teeth and gums
- Have a fully developed mouth
- Are non-smokers or are willing to quit smoking for the duration of their treatment
Dr. Adler can use Invisalign to address the following bite alignment issues:
- Open bite
- Gaps between teeth
- Crowded teeth
Keep in mind that Invisalign achieves excellent results for patients with mild to moderate bite alignment issues. For severe conditions, Dr. Adler may recommend alternative treatments to more effectively address the issue.
