Am I a good candidate for Invisalign?

The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign is to contact our dental office for a consultation with an Etobicoke, ON dentist

Invisalign works best on patients who are experiencing the following issues:

  • Crossbites—when the upper teeth on the sides of the mouth overlap the lower row of teeth (or vice versa)
  • Open bites—when there is a vertical gap between the front upper and lower teeth when biting down
  • Middle tooth overlap
  • Mild overbites or underbites
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Overcrowding of teeth
  • Protruding teeth
  • Severe malocclusion (imperfect positioning of teeth when mouth closed)
  • Wide gaps between the teeth

And for most patients, treatment takes anywhere from six to 18 months, which may be quite a bit faster than traditional braces in certain situations. It’s crucial, however, that patients are compliant with wearing their plastic aligner trays for a minimum of 22 hours each day. Patients who do not wear the aligners as directed will probably not achieve their desired results.
