Invisalign is worth it

Who is Invisalign for?

How do I know if Invisalign will work for my misaligned teeth?

Who is Invisalign for? This is a question many patients ask. In general, most people think that you can only correct small twisting and crowding with Invisalign. That's not true. The Invisalign method is well developed. Depending on the orthodontist's experience with Invisalign, almost any misaligned teeth can be corrected. We often have patients with us who have already been elsewhere. You were told no, you can't. It's way too difficult for Invisalign. That is why it is often worth taking a second opinion from an orthodontist experienced with Invisalign.

But who can really use Invisalign?

In principle, the almost invisible aligners are suitable for every patient. How does it work? You go to the orthodontist first and get advice. He will tell you which of the different Invisalign products is right for you. There is Invisalign first for the little ones, Invisalign express, Invisalign lite, Invisalign Comprehensive for adults and of course Invisalign Teen for children. And then we also have ilovemysmile. Invisalign is worn by young children through to grandmas and grandpas. Depending on what wishes and misalignments you have, the doctor will choose the right product for you.

It is NOT only possible to make aesthetic corrections to the front teeth.

Invisalign can also be used for bite corrections or difficult tooth misalignments. Not only front teeth, all other teeth can also be moved. Are braces only for women? No. Women get their teeth corrected more often, but more and more men understand that good teeth are important. Is it only possible up to a certain age? No, that is not a reason either. As long as you still have your own teeth, you can have your teeth straightened even in old age. Our oldest patient is 93 years old. She said to us. It's never too late to do something for yourself. Invisalign is particularly suitable for such cases because the speed of treatment can be individually regulated. Gentle movements are possible.

In old age, the tertiary crowding occurs, that is, the front teeth shift over one another again.

That bothers a lot of patients. You want your teeth to stay in place for life. And no gaps or crowds either. If you don't have a fixed retainer, your teeth will often begin to shift in the second half of your life. The almost invisible braces are particularly suitable for this. One can counteract this easily and best of all directly if one notices the shift. The rails are barely visible and don't bother much.

Invisalign splints are also being used more and more with children.

Of course, it's easier to brush your teeth with removable braces like Invisalign. It is very important to many parents that their children's dental care can be carried out optimally. That's why they'd rather choose Invisalign than fixed braces. With Invisalign, cleaning at school is much easier, it is more hygienic and there are fewer speech impairments. And you can eat what you want.

Another group of patients would like a simple and inexpensive short treatment.

Only a few front teeth are shifted. The wedding is just around the corner and you want a quick and effective tooth correction without many appointments. Or you live further away and don't want to have many appointments with the orthodontist. Then we can recommend short treatments. At the moment it is probably the easiest treatment with Invisalign and also well suited for the Corona period. After a single visit to the orthodontist, the hygienically packed Invisalign splints are sent to your home. You change independently every 2 weeks. When you're done, you go back to the orthodontist. This then inserts the retainers. Braces have never been so easy. No impressions are necessary and the practices work according to the latest standards of orthodontics and hygiene.
