Invisalign is quickly becoming one for the most popular options for people who are looking to obtain straight teeth, without the use of traditional braces, but many people often wonder "Is Invisalign right for me?"
If you have ever asked yourself this question, I have broken down a few aspects that may play a role in deciding if Invisalign is, in fact, right for you.
Invisalign is an orthodontic system used to straighten your teeth using a series of clear retainers, also known as aligners, rather than the traditional brackets, bands, and archwires that are traditionally used in orthodontics. There are several factors that one may want to consider before determining whether or not Invisalign treatment is right for them. These factors include:
- Coffee and Tea Drinkers - If you can't forego savouring your cup of coffee or tea throughout the day while you wear your Invisalign retainers, you may find that the retainers begin to pick up the stain from these beverages. Also, the temperature of the beverage may affect the shape of the retainers, causing them to warp and not fit correctly.
Only you and your dentist can determine together if you are an ideal candidate for Invisalign. If you have questions about Invisalign, speak to your dentist or orthodontist about the orthodontic treatment that is right for you.
