Are there Problems that Invisalign® Cannot Fix?
- Posted on: Feb 23 2012
Although Invisalign® meets many orthodontic needs, it is not effective for every orthodontic patient. To find out if you will benefit from Invisalign®, your teeth and jaws must be examined by our experienced dentists.
At Galleria Dental Aesthetics, we suggest Invisalign® only if it will achieve the necessary tooth movement. For some patients, complex tooth movement or jaw modification may require other types of orthodontic approaches. Finding the right treatment for you depends on your unique needs.
Generally, Invisalign® corrects mild cases of:
- Gapped teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Misaligned bites
For some patients, the best treatment approach includes combining Invisalign® and metal braces, so that the braces are worn for only a portion of the treatment. This approach is a good example of finding a treatment you are comfortable with, while also achieving a smile with impeccable function and appeal.
To find out more about Invisalign®, and if you live in the Fairfax, McLean, Arlington or surrounding Northern Virginia areas, please contact the experienced dentists at Galleria Dental Aesthetics to schedule a consultation.
