The Perfect Candidates for Invisalign

People who deal with misaligned teeth, or a condition commonly known as malocclusion are the best invisalign candidates.

While most people will go on the record stating that they’re happy with their teeth, over a quarter of Canadians are not confident with their teeth/smile. This is quite the unfortunate statistic, as this means that millions of Canadians feel a lack of confidence when it comes to their dental aesthetics/health.

While there are many reasons as to why someone would not like the look of their teeth, one of the main reasons has to do with crooked/misaligned teeth. The good news is that with the help of a treatment like Invisalign, one can straighten their teeth without having to endure the unsightly look of regular braces. 

To learn about Invisalign and more importantly, who the right candidates are for the treatment, check out the information we here at Ur Dental have come up with below.

The Benefit of Invisalign Compared to Braces

Before we get into the main topic at hand, we would like to talk a bit about why Invisalign is so popular in the current dental market and why it's so sought after by everyone who struggles with misaligned teeth. 

When one decides to get normal braces, it is important to note that these braces will stay on until they have to come off for good. Since the installation of braces takes a long time and requires a lot of steps, this dental treatment usually stays on one's teeth from anywhere to a year-two years. Alternatively, Invisalign is a removable aligner, meaning you can take them off whenever you feel like it to brush your teeth, floss in between your teeth, eat, etc. Wearing normal braces will also require you to avoid certain foods, whereas with Invisalign this is not required. Braces also tend to leave a white stain on the teeth once removed, but luckily with Invisalign, this does not happen.

When it comes down to it, there are many benefits regarding Invisalign–  especially when you compare these aligners to braces.

The Right Candidate

While there are a bunch of different factors that go into being the right candidate for Invisalign, there should be no reason why you can’t get Invisalign if you are a good candidate for braces. 

The best candidates for this treatment will always be people who deal with misaligned teeth, or a condition commonly known as malocclusion. Misaligned teeth can present in all different types of forms with it varying in severity depending on how long the issue has been left for/the person's anatomy. 

While Invisalign works to correct misaligned teeth, in some situations where the teeth are too severely misaligned you likely won’t be the right fit for this treatment. In a situation like this, you are likely better off getting a pair of old-fashioned metal braces, as this dental treatment is great for anyone suffering with any type of misalignment – even severe cases.

It is also important to note that your dental health should be in good shape before you start using Invisalign (or any type of aligners). If you deal with tooth decay, cavities or gum issues you’re likely not the right person for Invisalign until these problems are fixed/dealt with.
