Is Invisalign Treatment Right For You?

 

If you are interested in Invisalign treatment in Amarillo, Texas, we can help you determine if the Invisalign system is the right treatment for you. In most cases, people can use Invisalign to correct existing dental problems, and transform their teeth into a camera-worthy smile.  Invisalign is great for patients who have:

 

  1. Overcrowded teeth
  2. Spacing issues
  3. Overbites

 

Invisalign offers a wide variety of advantages over traditional braces.

 

  • Eat whatever you want. Because Invisalign treatment is used like a retainer, can you remove it when you eat.  This means PB&Js, popcorn, and chewing gum are all back on the table (pun intended).  When you are done eating, you just pop the Invisalign aligner back into your mouth and you are good to go.

 

  • They are clear: Most people won't even know you're wearing Invisalign aligners because they are clear.  Out of sight, out of mind!

 

  • No more retainers! The Invisalign aligners are yours to keep. You can wear the last phase at night to keep your teeth from shifting back into their original positions.  But if you forget for a while, it's no problem. You can work your way backwards through the phases to get your teeth realigned - literally.

 

Cases Where Invisalign May Not be For You

 

Invisalign treatment may not work if your teeth require certain types of adjustments.  Braces and wires enable orthodontists to grip, pull, and twist teeth into specific positions.  This isn't always possible with Invisalign treatment. Aligners can only move your teeth in certain directions.  You may require traditional braces if:

 

  • Your teeth require cylindrical rotation/movement

 

  • Your bite requires significant adjustments, especially if the jaw itself needs to be realigned

 

  • Your tooth, or teeth, require vertical movement to adjust their height, or position. This is especially true for teeth that are considered cylindrical in shape.
