Who Is a Good Candidate For Invisalign?
Common Dental Problems That
Invisalign Can Address
This can occur if your upper and lower teeth don't meet when you close your jaws, which can lead to oral complications if left unmanaged. It's also called malocclusion of the teeth.
This happens when there isn't enough space for all your teeth, causing them to become crooked or rotated. Teeth crowding may be due to genetics or because your teeth are too large for your jaw.
There are three common types of bite problems you may experience, such as overbite, underbite, and crossbite. These dental concerns may result from genetics, misaligned teeth, or bad habits like thumb-sucking and teeth grinding, or bruxism.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
These removable aligners work by gradually moving your teeth into the desired position using a series of transparent, custom-made aligners to give you a beautiful smile. You have to wear each set for at least 22 hours a day for two weeks before you move on to the next one until you achieve your desired results.
In some cases, you may have to wear a retainer a few times a week to prevent your newly straightened teeth from returning to their original position for several months.
The duration of treatment depends on the severity of the condition of your teeth. But in general, the entire treatment process may take up to 6 to 12 months or more, with regular appointments in between so your dentist can check the progress and make adjustments during treatment as needed.
In some aspects, Invisalign may be better than other teeth straighteners like traditional metal braces.
First, if you don’t like the idea of wearing metals and wires in your mouth, Invisalign is a good alternative for you. Second, these invisible braces are more comfortable to wear and easier to care for than traditional braces, reducing the risk of tooth decay. Third, it is a faster treatment, and the aligners can be removed so you can eat your favourite foods without worrying about damaging your braces. Ultimately, while patients report discomfort during their early stages of treatment, many say there’s more pain when wearing traditional braces.
However, you have to note that Invisalign may not be a suitable option for complex dental issues. They can also be more expensive than other types of teeth straighteners.
It’s important to brush your aligners every morning and night with a soft-bristled toothbrush and clean, mild soap to remove any food particles that accumulate during the day. Rinse them thoroughly with warm water after brushing, then store them in their case when not in use. Note that when cleaning your aligners, avoid using hot water as this can warp their shape. You can also use a cleaning solution especially made for Invisalign.
To use, soak your aligners in the tray with the solution for 15 minutes, then brush them before rinsing. Another product you can use to clean your clear aligners is the “cleaning crystals” that you dissolve in water and soak your aligners in.
