MYTH: I’m not eligible for Invisalign® treatment.
TRUTH: Times, and technology, have changed.
We often see people give up on the dream of the perfect smile all because they don’t like how braces look. We learned from our last Myth Debunked post that today’s braces are lighter, more attractive, and less painful, however, we know our patients can be overwhelmed by orthodontic treatment options. A far too common point of confusion is from those who don’t want braces for aesthetic reasons, yet assume – or have been told – they are not eligible for Invisalign clear aligners.
As we learned in the last post, the times of orthodontics have changed, people! Improved technology, maturing techniques and a depth of experience have opened Invisalign aligners as an option for nearly all ages and treatment needs. Invisalign’s clear aligners are removable, transparent and offer a discrete alternative to straightening your smile without the traditional metal bracket-and-wire braces. Over five million patients have successfully straightened their teeth with Invisalign treatment, and the numbers are continuing to grow as orthodontic technology advances to treat a wider range of clinical concerns.
With major strides in the last decade, Invisalign treatment continues to evolve and improve. Today, Invisalign clear aligners can be used to treat nearly every issue no matter how complex. If you were previously told that you were not eligible for Invisalign treatment, come see me and I will help you achieve the confident smile you deserve.
