Is Invisalign right for you?

Invisalign has gained immense popularity in recent times. You probably have seen people talk about it on Instagram or other social media apps. Thanks to social media, there is an increased awareness of the importance of good oral health and well-aligned teeth. After all, a well-aligned smile does not only look good but has towering health benefits. 

Suppose you are someone who wants to hop on to the well-aligned smile wagon; you probably have given Invisalign a thought. However, a pressing question that may be running in your head probably is - Is Invisalign right for me? 

We at Wilmington Orthodontic Center are here to put your mind at ease by answering this very question. 

Invisalign is a novel method of straightening malaligned and crooked teeth with the help of clear aligners. The treatment can last anywhere from 6-18 months, depending on the severity of the malalignment. 

Invisalign can treat a wide variety of orthodontic problems, such as:

  • Crowded teeth 
  • Spaced teeth (gaps between teeth)
  • Overbites
  • Underbites 
  • Crossbite

However, you will require more powerful orthodontic appliances and traditional braces if you have a more significant degree of misalignments like a deep bite or bony malalignments. The best person who can clear this doubt for you is our Orthodontist in Wilmington, Dr. Pancko. Schedule an appointment today to learn more about how you can improve your beautiful smile. 

Invisalign can be opted for by adults as well as teenagers, and there is no age bar. If you are someone who dreads metal braces, Invisalign is for you as it is clear, convenient, and comfortable. It is an excellent option for adults working in consumer-facing professions or athletes who cannot opt for metal braces but still wish for better oral health and a straight smile. 

If you have any more questions or would like to get a professional opinion before you decide, please don't hesitate to contact us. Our team of excellent dental professionals at Wilmington Orthodontic Center is here to assist you.
