Is Invisalign Right For You?

Is Invisalign Right For You?

If you’re considering Invisalign as an option for straightening your teeth, there are a few factors to consider. Here at OG Dental in Denver CO, we understand the importance of making sure that our patients have all the information they need before deciding on a course of action. That’s why we want to help you determine if Invisalign is right for you. Let’s break it down!

Does Your Orthodontist Provide Invisalign?

The first thing you need to know is whether your orthodontist provides Invisalign. While any qualified orthodontist can provide this treatment, some prefer not to. At OG Dental, we offer Invisalign as one of many options for straightening your teeth and would be happy to answer any questions you may have about the process.

What Are Your Goals?

Invisalign isn’t suitable for everyone—more complex cases may require traditional braces or other treatments. That means it’s important to discuss your goals with your dentist or orthodontist and make sure that Invisalign will meet them before going through with the procedure. Some of the most common goals for using Invisalign include correcting crowding, spacing issues between teeth, overbites, and underbites.  

How Long Will Treatment Take?

Another factor to consider when determining whether or not Invisalign is right for you is how long treatment will take. Generally speaking, treatment can take anywhere from 6-18 months depending on the complexity of your case and how diligent you are in wearing your aligners as directed by your doctor (in general, they should be worn at least 22 hours per day). As always, our team at OG Dental can help you determine how long your treatment could potentially take so that you can plan accordingly.
