Am I a Candidate for Invisalign® Treatment?

Invisalign Treatment Dentists Grandville MI

Invisalign® treatment is perfect if you wish to discreetly straighten your teeth without calling a lot of attention to your smile. Our Invisalign dentists in Grandville, MI, would be more than happy to determine if you’re a candidate for clear aligners during a consultation.

In the meantime, here are some of the top signs you may be a candidate for Invisalign treatment.

You’re a Teen or Adult

In general, we recommend Invisalign treatment for teens and adults. This is because you’ll be required to wear your clear aligners at least 20 to 22 hours per day. Not only does this take a lot of discipline, but you’ll also be responsible for maintaining good oral hygiene throughout the day. For example, you’ll need to brush your teeth after every meal and snack to avoid staining your Invisalign clear aligners.

Young children don’t have the same level of motivation as teenagers and adults to improve their smiles. They also don’t have the ability to fully understand the consequences of their actions in the long run.

You Want Discreet Orthodontic Treatment

Whether you have a public-facing job or you’re going to school, many of our patients don’t want metal braces on their teeth. The main selling point of Invisalign aligners is that they’re made out of a clear comfortable plastic that fits snugly around your teeth. This means that most people won’t even realize that you’re wearing orthodontic aligners unless you tell them.

You Wish to Improve Your Dental Health

It’s no secret that crooked teeth and bite issues will affect your oral health in the long run. For this reason, many patients seek orthodontic treatment to improve the health, function, and appearance of their smiles. Our Invisalign dentists in Grandville, MI, will evaluate the health of your smile during your consultation to determine your next steps.

Orthodontic treatment can help reduce your risk for the following:

  • Plaque and tartar buildup
  • Cavities
  • Gum disease
  • Abnormal wear of the enamel
  • TMJ disorders
  • Jaw pain

If you recognize any of these oral health issues, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our office to schedule an Invisalign consultation.

You Want to Feel More Confident

Do you often smile with your lips closed or cover your mouth while you laugh? It’s not uncommon for people to feel self-conscious about their smiles. However, it’s important that you don’t let the appearance of your teeth affect your confidence.

If you’re ready to take the next step, our Invisalign providers can help you improve the aesthetics of your smile. That way, you’ll be ready to show off your smile to the world in no time.
