Have you had a consultation for Invisalign and been told you were not a candidate? You should get a second opinion. If you’re wondering who can be treated with Invisalign, the answer is simple. Virtually all cases, no matter how difficult, can be treated with Invisalign. Even if you were turned down in the past, new technology and updated techniques could have you saying goodbye to traditional braces and hello to clear braces.
Wondering why you were turned down? Ready to revisit Invisalign as an option? Here is what you need to know.
Three Reasons You May Have Been Turned Down for Invisalign
Your dentist lacks experience with Invisalign.
Invisalign has been in use for less than 20 years, so many dentists and orthodontists have more experience with braces than with Invisalign. Due to this lack of experience with Invisalign, many dentists believe full braces are easier to use. However, this simply isn’t true. Invisalign is just as effective as traditional braces.
Your teeth are too crooked for Invisalign.
If you have a severe malocclusion (dentist-speak for very crooked teeth), your dentist may recommend braces or another treatment option instead of Invisalign. While this is unusual, there are some cases where stronger forces are needed in order to move the jaw, not just the teeth themselves.
You had your consultation several years ago.
Since you had your consultation, new technology has been developed that treats cases that were previously untreatable with Invisalign alone. So, if you were told that you can’t do Invisalign, that may no longer be true.
New PROPEL Technology Treats Very Difficult Cases
With so many advancements in dental technology, it’s easier than ever to straighten teeth. The most effective treatment currently available combines Invisalign braces with PROPEL, often called “accelerated orthodontics.”
PROPEL is a cutting-edge technology that reduces treatment time significantly, by up to 60% in some cases. By stimulating bone remodeling, PROPEL enables us to treat more complicated cases with Invisalign. The ten-minute in-office procedure requires no recovery time. With PROPEL, teeth move more smoothly and predictably, so you can flash your perfect smile in less time.
