Is Invisalign Right for You? Treatable Cases

Hoping for a straighter smile, but not sure if Invisalign is right for you? In most instances, yes – it is! Our team of skilled dentists at Advanced Dental of Westport, CT will meet with you to determine the best treatment protocol for your personal case, but Invisalign is a great option in general for anyone looking to improve their smile with ease.

Treatable Cases

In particular, Invisalign excels at treating the following dental conditions:

  • Overbite – Your upper front teeth close in front of your lower teeth
  • Underbite – Your lower teeth protrude past upper front teeth
  • Crossbite – Your upper and lower jaws do not line up
  • Gap Teeth – You have extra spaces between two or more of your teeth
  • Open Bite – Your top and bottom teeth don’t meet
  • Crowded Teeth – There is not enough room in the jaw for the teeth to fit normally
  • Generally Straighter Teeth – When you just want a more beautiful smile

What to Expect with Invisalign

Treatment with Invisalign is simple and does not require time-consuming monthly appointments like traditional metal braces.

Our skilled dentists first capture a 3D image of your teeth using a high-tech scanner and use it to create a detailed roadmap of the ways your teeth need to be shifted during your treatment. Before we get started, our team will show you a before and after mockup of what your new, straighter smile will look like.

Once your treatment plan is finalized, your custom clear aligners are made using Invisalign’s state-of-the-art printing process. These snap-on aligners will pressure specific teeth to move into place, as discussed during your initial appointment. You will change these aligners approximately every two weeks, gradually shifting the required teeth into a straighter position.

The length of treatment depends on your specific case, but you will be on your way to a beautiful, confident smile in no time with Invisalign.
