Am I a Candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign braces are the most comfortable, inconspicuous way of straightening your teeth. There are no metal brackets or wires required, just a set of removable, clear aligners. But how do you know if Invisalign is right for you or your teen? Schedule a free consultation, of course!
If You Think You’re Too Old for Invisalign
One of the most common questions that our Vancouver Invisalign dentist gets is, “Am I too old for Invisalign?” Age is almost never a factor when it comes to clear braces. At Ranieu Family Dental, we’ve completed cases for individuals in their 50s, but it’s not uncommon for someone in their 60s or 70s to undergo Invisalign treatment as well.
What About Open Bites or Severely Crooked Teeth?
Some orthodontists or dentists will tell you that you can’t fix your teeth without traditional braces. Fortunately, the more advanced Invisalign becomes, the more effective it is at managing problems like:
- Open bites (large spaces between your upper and lower front teeth when your teeth are biting together)
- Gaps between your teeth
- Crowding or overlapped teeth
At Ranieu Family Dental, our Invisalign providers have extensive training in clear braces treatment and case management. In fact, we’ve helped patients with severe malocclusions achieve results that were once only thought possible with traditional braces.
Contraindications for Clear Braces
In some cases, we may recommend delaying orthodontic therapy, especially if you have several untreated areas of tooth decay or advanced periodontal disease. However, straightening your teeth with Invisalign can make it easier for you to keep your teeth cleaner, healthier, and cavity free in the future. Plus, it’s easy to keep your teeth clean during your course of therapy, as there are no fixed appliances to brush or floss around.
