If you’re looking to enhance your smile through orthodontics, Invisalign may be a great option for you. At Southcentre Dental Clinic, our skilled dentist Dr. Jennifer Silver offers a comprehensive evaluation of your dental needs and cosmetic preferences to determine whether Invisalign is a viable orthodontic solution for you.

Invisalign can effectively treat several moderate oral issues, such as:

Crooked teeth or misalignment
Minor rotations
Crowding or spacing
Mild bite issues

However, it’s important to note that Invisalign may not be the best option for more severe dental problems. Depending on your specific needs, Dr. Silver may recommend alternative orthodontic treatments.

Typically, the ideal candidates for Invisalign are adults and adolescents who have fully-developed teeth. Traditional braces may be more effective for younger candidates.

Ideal Invisalign candidates should also have good oral health with only minor dental imperfections. It’s essential to have realistic expectations and a clear understanding of the responsibilities involved in Invisalign treatment.

To achieve successful results, Invisalign candidates should:

Wear Invisalign aligners for at least 20 hours per day
Practice good oral hygiene by cleaning their teeth after every meal
Follow a treatment schedule that involves changing aligners every two weeks for approximately 6 to 12 months.

During your consultation, Dr. Silver can discuss your candidacy and address any questions you may have about Invisalign.
