Invisalign is the perfect orthodontic option for eligible individuals. It’s virtually invisible, relatively pain-free, and doesn’t come with eating restrictions. However, it is not suitable for everyone. It's why you need to schedule an appointment with your Kenosha Invisalign expert.

If you’ve yet to determine your eligibility, schedule your appointment with your dentist Dr. Todd Armstrong to find out more about Invisalign and who’s an ideal candidate for it.

Adults and Older Teenagers Are Great Candidates for Invisalign

Your age is a huge factor in whether or not you’ll be an ideal candidate for treatment. The reason for this is that, in the majority of cases, responsibility and dedication to treatment increases with age. But while kids and most younger teenagers are more suited to traditional orthodontic options, keep in mind that each situation and patient is still different. Don't hold back from asking your Kenosha Invisalign dentist about your child's eligibility.

Older individuals are ideal Invisalign candidates because they’re capable of following the stringent instructions regarding wearing Invisalign. Mainly, you need to wear the aligner for 22 hours daily and move on to the succeeding aligner on schedule.

Younger individuals are easily tempted to remove their aligners or switch to the succeeding aligner tray. Additionally, since Invisalign is removable, younger individuals might lose their aligners and complicate the treatment schedule.

The Orthodontic Issues That Kenosha Invisalign Can Correct

Currently, Invisalign can fix moderate and mild cases of these orthodontic concerns:

  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Slightly overlapping and misaligned teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Protruding teeth
  • Minor overbites, underbites, and open bites
  • Certain crossbites—when top teeth fit inside and not outside the bottom teeth

With that said, if you suffer from severe orthodontic issues, regardless of your age, traditional braces may be more effective for you. You need to understand that Invisalign is geared towards fixing the teeth’s position and placement.

In this light, your dentist in Kenosha WI could help determine the most appropriate orthodontic option, whether it’s Invisalign or traditional orthodontic options, to give you the smile of your dreams.
