You may think that your crooked teeth are too severe to correct, or have had consultations in the past where you have been turned down for Invisalign® treatment, but it may be time to take a closer look. Getting a second opinion on the matter is essential because the truth is that many cases can be treated with Invisalign®. Although some may be more difficult than others, if you want straighter teeth the technology exists to make this a reality.
Reasons Why You May Have Been Turned Down in the Past
When it comes to orthodontics, Invisalign® is a relatively new innovation and many experienced orthodontists still have more experience with traditional braces and are more likely to recommend them. When there is a radical amount of alignment to perform, however, braces may be the only option. There are some cases of severe malocclusion where this is true and advanced orthodontic procedures on the jaw are necessary.
Are You Too Old for Invisalign?
It is a common misconception that braces are only for kids. While orthodontic treatment is recommended to be performed at a certain stage of development, there are many factors which may have prevented you from seeking treatment in your teens. Adult orthodontic treatment is becoming more common and is just as effective as when it is used by younger patients. The benefit of choosing Invisalign® for this purpose is that it prevents the awkward appearance of traditional braces while ultimately straightening teeth and providing adults with a better smile.
