Who Is Suitable For Invisalign Braces?

Invisalign braces are an innovative solution to traditional braces that utilize a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually and comfortably straighten teeth. They are custom-made for each patient using advanced 3D computer-imaging technology. Unlike traditional braces, these aligners are virtually invisible, allowing you to improve your smile without drawing attention to the treatment.

Invisalign braces are not just about aesthetics, though. The removable nature of the aligners means you can eat and drink whatever you like during the treatment period. Plus, you can also maintain your oral hygiene routine without any additional hassle. They are highly comfortable and do not have any metal brackets or wires that could cause irritation to your mouth.

At Claregate Dental, we use the latest technology to create a precise treatment plan from the initial positioning of your teeth to your final desired smile. This allows us to show you the projected transformation of your smile even before you start the treatment.

Benefits of Invisalign braces

The benefits of Invisalign braces extend beyond just a beautiful smile. They offer a host of advantages over traditional braces, making them a popular choice among patients of all ages.

First and foremost, Invisalign braces are remarkably discreet. The clear aligners are virtually invisible, allowing you to go about your day-to-day activities without feeling self-conscious about your braces. This is particularly beneficial for adults who may feel uncomfortable with the idea of wearing traditional metal braces.

Invisalign braces are also highly convenient. The aligners are removable, meaning you can enjoy all your favourite foods without worry. Additionally, you can remove the aligners for special occasions, photos, and while brushing and flossing. This adds a level of flexibility to your treatment that traditional braces cannot offer.

Lastly, Invisalign braces are very effective. They are capable of treating a wide range of teeth-straightening conditions, including overbite, underbite, crossbite, gap teeth, open bite, and crowded teeth. At Claregate Dental, we have had the pleasure of transforming countless smiles using Invisalign braces.

Ideal candidate for Clear braces

While Invisalign braces offer numerous advantages, they may not be suitable for everyone.

The first factor to consider is the nature and severity of your tooth or jaw problem. Invisalign braces are highly effective at correcting mild to moderate dental alignment issues, such as overcrowding, minor underbites, overbites, and gaps. However, severe or complex cases may require more traditional orthodontic treatment.

Another significant factor is age. Invisalign braces are suitable for teenagers and adults, as their teeth and jaws are fully developed. However, for younger children whose mouths are still growing, traditional braces may be a more appropriate solution.

Lastly, a key factor is patient compliance. Since the aligners are removable, it requires a disciplined approach to ensure they are worn for the recommended 20-22 hours per day. Patients who are not committed to wearing the aligners as directed may not achieve the desired results.
