Invisalign Candidacy: Assumptions Versus Facts

As you begin imagining your life in the future, once you achieve a straight smile, you might find that you’re grinning to yourself. So much will change for the better, so who wouldn’t become excited? Your daily qualify of life will greatly improve. You’ll even love the way your smile looks! However, before you get ahead of yourself, we encourage you to focus on the current issue: Your Invisalign treatment candidacy. If you’re very interested in this treatment but you haven’t come in for a consultation yet because of some concerns, give yourself the motivation you need with some common assumptions (and the truth behind them).

Assumptions Versus Facts

Assumption: You assume that Invisalign treatment must only be for very minor cosmetic concerns, so you don’t bother asking us about it.

Fact: This treatment is actually capable of addressing some much more serious concerns as they apply to misalignment. Did you know that you can choose aligner trays for an open bite, an underbite, a crossbite, and more? It’s true!

Assumption: You guess that Invisalign treatment is much more expensive than traditional braces, so you probably aren’t a candidate because you won’t be able to afford it.

Fact: As a matter of fact, Invisalign generally requires a very similar investment when you compare it with traditional braces. Fortunately, dental insurance often offers coverage, as well.

Assumption: You assume that not only are you too old for orthodontic work but that you must be too old for this modern technology.

Fact: If you have a misaligned smile, you’re never too old for either orthodontics or Invisalign treatment. Candidacy is all about whether the treatment is appropriate for your particular needs.
