InvisalignIt is never too late to get a straight, beautiful smile. No metal braces needed!

Are you an adult who isn't happy with their crooked, misaligned smile? If so, you aren’t alone. It’s amazing how much our smiles affect not just our appearance but our confidence as well. Of course, you may think you’re too old for braces, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, more and more adults are turning to our Franklin, KY, family dentist Dr. David Fowler to get Invisalign. Read on to learn more!

 

Your Dental Issues

The biggest factor that will help our Franklin, KY, dentist determine whether or not Invisalign is right for you is the issue or issues you are looking to correct with Invisalign and how severe the problem is. While Invisalign can handle a variety of issues it won’t be the ideal treatment for someone who is dealing with a severe overbite or issues that require realignment of the jaws.

Invisalign is ideal for handling,

  • Crowding
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Underbite

If the issues you are dealing with are more severe this doesn’t mean that you’re out of luck, it will just mean that you may need to consider traditional metal or clear braces because they will be more effective for severe cases.

 

Your Age

Invisalign is designed to cater to older teens and adults who are looking to get a straighter smile. After all, we understand that the idea of getting braces later in life may not be ideal. Whether you are worried about having braces for your senior photos or sporting braces around colleagues, we understand your concerns and know that Invisalign can make our teen and adult patients more confident.

Unfortunately, Invisalign is not ideal for children and young teens, whose teeth are still growing. Each aligner is custom-made to fit just perfectly against your teeth to shift them into place, so teeth that are still growing won’t respond well to this orthodontic treatment.

 

Your Dedication

Another reason so many people love Invisalign is that it can be removed before eating or brushing and flossing. Of course, the more you wear the aligners the more effective your treatment will be. If you think you may be tempted to wear your aligners less than 22 hours each day then this may not be the ideal way to straighten your smile.
