Do you need to see an orthodontist in Hollywood? If you have perfectly straight teeth with a normal bite, you don’t need to see one, but if you have crooked and crowded teeth, you definitely need orthodontic care for the best smile.
Orthodontics offers various treatment plans depending on your case and your preference. Two common treatments for teeth misalignment are braces and Invisalign®. Many people prefer the latter because of its clear design. Do you qualify? Let’s find out.
Invisalign aligners are clear customizable trays designed to move your teeth until they reach their desired positions. The main difference between Invisalign and braces is their design. While braces are rough and bulky, Invisalign trays are smooth and comfortable. They’re also less noticeable because of their transparent design.
Having crooked teeth is a pretty straightforward case and can be addressed through Invisalign. Invisalign also works for people with crowded teeth, tooth gaps, open bites, crossbites, overbites, and underbites. Your orthodontist will evaluate your case and determine whether Invisalign is a suitable option for you. Clear aligners are not recommended for complex cases.
Invisalign will only work if you have discipline. Since these trays are removable, you have to be committed to wearing them around 22 hours a day. If you keep taking them out and forgetting to put them back in, the treatment will not work on you. You are expected to wear the trays most hours of the day, and the only time you’re allowed to remove them is when you eat or brush your teeth.
If you’re unsure and want to confirm with an orthodontist if you’d make a good candidate, let us know, and we’ll evaluate your teeth.
