Good Candidates for Invisalign — Are You One of them?

Maybe you haven’t smiled fully for many years because of your crooked teeth, or you put your hand over your mouth to hide your misaligned bite. If this sounds like you, Invisalign from Esquire Dental Centres in Pickering, Ontario, is a fantastic solution for aligning your teeth and bite. Instead of metal appliances, Invisalign uses removable plastic trays to perfect your smile. Many adults and teens prefer this method because of its comfort, convenience, and speed.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign uses flexible, transparent plastic aligners to apply controlled pressure over your teeth. The aligners are custom-designed using digital scans of your mouth, resulting in appliances that fit perfectly over your teeth for optimal comfort. Best of all, Invisalign trays are minimally visible, so many people won’t notice you are undergoing orthodontic treatment.

The aligners are worn in progression, requiring a switch every two weeks to the next set in the series. This pattern continues until you achieve your ideal smile. After treatment, we recommend wearing retainers to preserve your results. 

Who is the right candidate for Invisalign?

Invisalign is suitable for patients with overcrowded, gapped, and overlapping teeth. This treatment also addresses several bite issues (malocclusion), including overbites, underbites, cross-bites, etc. 

Generally, Invisalign treats mild to moderate teeth misalignment and bite issues. However, you may require surgery or other orthodontic interventions for severe dental issues like an underdeveloped jaw or extrusion and intrusion.

The other attributes of a good Invisalign candidate include: 

  • Must be free of gum disease and tooth decay
  • Must commit to good oral hygiene
  • Your jaw should have stopped growing, making teenagers and adults ideal candidates
  • Compliance with wearing aligners 20-22 hours daily

Nothing is wrong with wearing metal braces, but many patients prefer a more discreet option. Invisalign is a low-profile, minimal-fuss orthodontic system to perfect your smile with slight interruptions to everyday life.
