Do I Qualify for Invisalign?

Is teeth straightening with clear Invisalign braces right for you? This state-of-the-art invisible braces system is the leader when it comes to orthodontic aligners. But there are a few criteria to meet:

You might want to consider porcelain veneers in Rouse Hill if you…

No Active Cavities

It’s important that your smile is free of any active cavities. Any existing tooth decay will need to be treated promptly, as wearing braces or aligners over your teeth could trap bacteria, allowing the cavities to spread. Yes Dental offers attractive, small white fillings that are minimally invasive to your teeth. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.

No Gum Disease

Periodontal disease destroys the gum and bone tissues responsible for anchoring your teeth. The good news is that Invisalign can be part of your comprehensive care plan for gum disease, as it helps align your bite (crooked teeth are more prone to periodontal infections.) That being said, you will likely require a series of gum treatments beforehand.

Severity of Tooth Misalignment

One significant factor influencing your candidacy for Invisalign is the extent of tooth and jaw misalignment. Minor tooth movement, moderate crowding, and severe bite discrepancies can all be addressed with braces. However, Yes Dental (Rouse Hill) dentists will need to assess your unique bite anatomy to provide you with an estimated timeframe and outcome.

Good Home Care

Are you dedicated to a good home hygiene routine? Although Invisalign is easy to care for, you’ll still need to plan on brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and changing your aligners out as directed. If you think keeping up with your trays will be difficult, a fixed orthodontic treatment might be a better solution. Our Invisalign trays have built-in indicators reminding you when it’s time to change them out.

Cosmetic veneers treatment typically requires three steps: your consultation, the prep visit, and then final placement. You can have a completely brand new smile in what seems like no time at all. Once you’ve decided on the design of your veneers and we’ve prepped your teeth, your permanent veneers are bonded in place about two weeks later!
