If you’re unhappy with a crooked smile, you may have researched your orthodontic options. Many people are drawn to Invisalign because they’re removable and less noticeable than traditional metal orthodontic braces.
Is Invisalign Right for You?
Invisalign isn’t the right option for everyone. Below are a few things to keep in mind when trying to decide if Invisalign is right for you:
Your age – Invisalign is for adults or older teens who have lost their baby teeth and whose second molars have already erupted. Invisalign is not made for kids or adolescents.
Your finances – Invisalign is more expensive than traditional metal braces. However, each patient’s insurance and financial situation are different, so before making a decision based on finances, please talk to your orthodontist about price comparisons.
Your specific orthodontic needs – Invisalign can’t fix a wide range of orthodontic issues in the way that metal braces can. Only certain types of tooth movements are achievable through Invisalign. Your orthodontist will be able to walk you through your treatment options.
As you can see, there are many things to consider when deciding on your orthodontic treatment, but we are here to help you make the best decision for you or your child!
