Am I a Candidate for Invisalign?
The first step to straightening your smile with clear braces is visiting Brooklyn Heights Dental for a consultation and learning whether you’re a candidate for Invisalign. There are many common orthodontic issues that the Invisalign system can help you correct.
The most common issues can include:
Crowded Teeth – Not enough space for all your teeth fit normally.
Widely Spaced Teeth – Having too much space between one or more teeth.
Crossbite/Overbite/Underbite – Misaligned jaw placement causing both the upper and lower jaw to line up incorrectly.
Crooked Teeth – When one or more teeth are not in line with each other.
While all of these issues can easily be corrected using the Invisalign system, it is important that you visit an experienced Invisalign provider. Call Brooklyn Orthodontist Dr Eugene D. Stanislaus for a customized treatment plan that will get you started on your journey to your healthy, beautiful smile.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who isn’t a candidate for Invisalign?
Most patients who need orthodontic correction are candidates for Invisalign. However, patients who suffer from severe misalignment issues may need to get braces. Frequent smokers may also have trouble with Invisalign, since smoke can stain the aligners and removing them every time you smoke isn’t practical.
In addition, patients with cavities or gum disease will need to get those issues treated before starting the Invisalign process. During your consultation, Dr. Stanislaus will thoroughly examine your teeth to determine if Invisalign is the right choice for you.
Is Invisalign available for all ages?
While Invisalign is a great option for adults and teenagers, we don’t offer the treatment for children. To take advantage of Invisalign, you need to wait for all of your permanent teeth to come in, which typically doesn’t happen until age 12. Younger patients may also struggle with the instructions of how often to remove their aligners, making braces a more effective option for them. If you’re unsure about your child’s eligibility for Invisalign, schedule a consultation with Dr. Stanislaus so he can determine the best treatment plan for their needs.
