While Invisalign is suitable for many individuals, it’s important to understand that not everyone may be a candidate for this treatment. Let’s explore the factors that may make someone unsuitable for Invisalign treatment. By understanding the potential limitations and alternative options available, you can make informed decisions about the best orthodontic treatment for your specific needs.

Several factors can influence the suitability of Invisalign treatment for an individual. While the final decision rests with an experienced orthodontist like us, here are some key considerations that may affect candidacy:

  1. Complex Orthodontic Issues: Invisalign is best suited for individuals with mild to moderate orthodontic issues. Complex cases involving significant tooth rotation, vertical tooth movement, or major bite corrections may require alternative treatments.
  2. Bite Misalignment: Invisalign is effective for addressing certain bite misalignments, such as overbites, underbites, and crossbites. However, severe bite issues that require extensive jaw repositioning or surgical intervention may be better addressed with traditional braces or other treatments.
  3. Insufficient Space: Invisalign aligners require adequate space to move the teeth into their desired positions. In cases of severe crowding or limited space, tooth extraction or other techniques may be necessary before considering Invisalign treatment.
  4. Young Children: Invisalign treatment is typically recommended for teenagers and adults whose permanent teeth have fully erupted. Young children with developing dentition may not be suitable candidates for Invisalign, as their teeth and jaws are still growing and developing.
  5. Pregnancy: Hormonal changes during pregnancy can affect oral health and may influence the suitability of Invisalign treatment. It is generally advised to postpone orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign, until after pregnancy to ensure the safety and well-being of both the mother and the baby.
  6. Severe Gum Disease: Individuals with severe gum disease (periodontitis) may not be suitable candidates for Invisalign. Gum disease can compromise the stability of the teeth and their supporting structures, making orthodontic treatment less effective. It is essential to address any underlying gum issues before considering Invisalign or any orthodontic treatment.
  7. Unrealistic Expectations: It’s important to have realistic expectations when considering Invisalign treatment. While Invisalign can address a wide range of orthodontic concerns, it may not be able to achieve the same results as traditional braces or other orthodontic methods in complex cases. Open communication with us about your goals and expectations will help determine the most suitable treatment option for you.

Great dentist and hygienist, however the waiting room had no wifi (and no signal) which meant I couldn’t work when waiting. When I asked if there was wifi, I was just told ‘no’ by the receptionist. I was going to add a suggestion to the box, but there was no pen.

I have attended this practice for many years and I never fail to be impressed by the quality of the work carried out by both the dentists and the dental hygienists. Procedures are explained clearly and in such a friendly manner. And most importantly despite having some major work carried out on a few occasions I did not feel any pain during, or after, the treatment. I would also like to pont out that the reception staff are so efficient, friendly and most helpful. This is an outstanding dental practice.
