Who Is Invisalign for?

April 27, 2021 11:38 pm

Invisalign® clear aligner therapy is a discreet orthodontic treatment that allows patients to achieve their ideal smile with ease. Read on to learn about Invisalign and who can benefit from it!

What Is Invisalign?

Looking for an alternative to traditional metal braces? Invisalign utilizes clear retainer-like plastic trays to subtly straighten teeth over time. The trays are worn in two-week increments before they are switched out for the next set in the series. They should be worn at least 20-22 hours a day for optimal results, and are taken out when eating, drinking anything other than water, brushing, and flossing.

Am I a Good Candidate For Invisalign?

A good candidate for Invisalign is a patient with mild to moderate misalignment who wants to discreetly straighten their teeth without metal brackets and wires, and who can remember to wear their trays and not lose them.

Invisalign is an excellent orthodontic option for adults and responsible teens looking for a nearly invisible way to straighten their teeth!

Benefits of Invisalign

In general, straighter teeth are easier to clean and will give you improved self-confidence. In addition to these, clear aligner therapy offers many benefits, including:

  • Reduced self-consciousness during orthodontic treatment
  • Comfortable plastic aligners won’t irritate your mouth
  • 12-18 month average treatment time
  • Removable for normal oral hygiene & eating

How to Pay for Orthodontic Treatment

"This was the best experience with a dentist I've ever had. I had an implant done and was expecting a lot of pain. I had no pain at all. It was so refreshing to have a dentist who cares about his patients. I highly recommend Dr. Orme and his staff at Southwest Dental Care."

- Sheryl B.

"I'm the kind of person who likes a real explanation of what's happening, even if I don't really understand half of it. Dr. Orme went the extra mile to explain everything in a casual and personable way without "dumbing it down". The office space is modern and fresh, and the staff is welcoming and characterful."

- John D.

"I worked with Dr. Orme in the Dominican Republic recently on a humanitarian trip. I watched him work hard every day at making the people feel good, creating an experience, as well as teaching those around him. He makes patients and co-workers feel good. He's positive, very upbeat, and I would recommend him strongly!!"

- Spencer C.

"He is the best dentist I have ever been to. He listens and only does what you want done without pressure. Very informative without the lecture. Dr. Orme and his staff are very friendly."
