Am I Eligible for Invisalign Treatment?

Am I Eligible for Invisalign Treatment?

Invisalign is a very popular and easily accessible orthodontic treatment that gives patients the opportunity to correct misaligned teeth without having unflattering metal braces attract attention for the wrong reasons.

While most people can benefit from Invisalign to help straighten their teeth, these clear aligners unfortunately cannot treat all orthodontic issues, or they may not the right treatment for certain reasons. At Dental on Clarendon, we can help determine if you’re a suitable candidate for Invisalign treatment. The best way for us to do this is for you to come into our Melbourne CBD dental clinic for an appointment. However, we have also provided some useful information below to help you out.

Are Your Teeth Correctable?

Invisalign is a suitable treatment to help most adult or teenage patients who have mild-to-moderate tooth misalignment issues, such as:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite

However, if your alignment issues are particularly severe, Invisalign will be unable to fix your teeth. Your dentist may recommend you receive another type of orthodontic treatment, such as traditional metal braces.

How Old Are You?

Adults and older teenagers are the right age to receive Invisalign treatment, as all their adult teeth have grown in by this stage. Invisalign clear aligners are transparent and barely noticeable, meaning both teenagers and adults don’t have to worry about other people noticing the aligners in their mouth and feeling embarrassed because of them. However, Invisalign clear aligners are not usually suitable for children and young teenagers whose teeth are still growing.
