Who can use Invisalign?

Image of clear bracesAlmost anybody who needs correction of misaligned teeth can use Invisalign! Invisalign also offers Invisalign Teen, a line designed specifically for teenagers and their unique needs.

Invisalign can treat a range of orthodontic issues, including:

  • Crowding
  • Wide spacing
  • Twisting
  • Overlapping

Invisalign can also be used to treat mild malocclusions (problems with your bite). Some cases may require treatment with traditional braces, but Dr. Kim will discuss your individual case with you.

Invisalign is an excellent option for anyone who wants to straighten their teeth but is concerned about the aesthetics and inconvenience of traditional braces. Adults who frequently speak in front of others, meet with clients, or have other reasons for maintaining a mature and professional appearance are excellent candidates for Invisalign. Invisalign can even be removed for special occasions.

It’s tough to be a teenager, and many teens are quite self-conscious about their image. Invisalign Teen can make straightening teeth simple without all the hassle of braces. Invisalign Teen is also a good option for student-athletes or musicians who face challenges trying to pursue their passion with metal braces on their teeth.
