Is Invisalign Right For Me?

Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Hampton, Portsmouth - VA

Finding the right orthodontic treatment for you is absolutely crucial. It can be the difference between a pleasant and an unpleasant experience. As such, deciding if Invisalign® is right for you will be one of our most important tasks.

Fortunately, most people in need of an orthodontic adjustment are good candidates for Invisalign®. Put simply, if you’re a candidate for traditional metal braces, you’re likely a good candidate for Invisalign®.

The most important consideration is your overall level of dental health. You need strong, healthy teeth and gums to be a candidate for Invisalign®. If you’re suffering from gum disease or have serious structural issues, you will need to address these before beginning an Invisalign® treatment.

The other thing to keep in mind is that Invisalign® requires a significant time commitment. You’ll have to keep your aligners in for 20 to 22 hours a day, removing them only for meals and when you brush your teeth. Make sure you’re comfortable with this before pursuing Invisalign.
