Who can use Invisalign instead of braces?

My teeth are too messed up for Invisalign to treat, right?

Wrong! Here’s why:

Clear aligner treatment, first developed and introduced by Invisalign in 1999, has gone through tremendous advancements in technology and technique since the early days. The minor crowding and malalignment that was able to be corrected with Invisalign initially has now progressed into the proficient treatment of moderate to complex bite problems.

Moderate to complex bite problems can be proficiently treated with Invisalign.

Whether your teeth are severely crowded, or you have spaces that you want closed, clear aligners can address those scenarios. In addition, many bite problems (overbite, underbite, crossbite) can be corrected with Invisalign.

Is Invisalign the right choice for me?

It is important to know that using clear aligners instead of braces to straighten your teeth and correct your bite requires diligent wear (23/7) of the aligners in order to have a successful result. And most importantly, your treatment should only come from a licensed dental health provider, ideally an orthodontist, NOT an online DIY company.
