A bite or jaw misalignment is a serious problem, and the concern needs to be addressed as soon as possible. Orthodontics represents a solution, but traditional metal braces are unsightly and uncomfortable. For this reason, many of our Buffalo-area patients inquire about Invisalign®, which represents a comfortable, inconspicuous solution.
The first step in the process involves evaluating you to determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign®. The great news is that most people who are candidates for traditional metal braces are also candidates for Invisalign®.
The ideal Invisalign® candidate:
- Suffers from an overbite, underbite, crossbite, misalignment or irregular teeth spacing
- Does not have gum disease or any other serious oral health issues
- Is in good overall health
- Is committed to following doctor's instructions, including wearing the Invisalign® aligners whenever you're not eating or brushing your teeth
Invisalign® is very effective at correcting most mild to moderate bite alignment issues. However, if you have more serious orthodontic problems, Dr. Evola may recommend an alternative such as braces in order to ensure you achieve the best possible results.
We understand you still have plenty of questions about Invisalign® and whether it's right for you. We're happy to answer those questions and help you find an orthodontic solution that achieves your goals as quickly and comfortably as possible.
