Invisalign Treatable Cases

Which type of braces are the best? With contemporary orthodontics, patients now have many options when it comes to improving oral aesthetics and smile. With such a wide range of choices available for teeth straightening, it is easier to accomplish and increasingly affordable while also more convenient than ever before to improve teeth alignment in young and adult patients. 

Invisalign Treatable Cases

Gapped Teeth:

This occurs when the jawbone grows further than expected or can happen when teeth are missing and the others shift to compensate. Spacing issues can be a potential issue leading to gum and periodontal problems.


Dentists actually call an overbite an overjet. Usually caused by genetics or overdevelopment of the bone that supports the teeth, an overbite leads to teeth wear and can cause joint and jaw pain.


When the lower teeth protrude beyond the upper, it can prevent normal tooth function. This is usually caused when the upper jaw is undergrown or the lower jaw is overgrown.

Open Bite:

This occurs when teeth are not able to make physical contact with others due to an abnormal jaw structure (or sometimes thumb sucking). This can cause speech problems or lead to issues such as TMD.

Overcrowded Teeth:

When there is a lack of room for all teeth to fit, overcrowding can occur. This issue may lead to crooked teeth and may make it easier for plaque to accumulate in the space between teeth.


Cross-bite occurs when the upper and lower jaws are both misaligned. One or more upper teeth bite inside the lower teeth causing wear of teeth and the higher potential for gum disease.


The difference in Invisalign Teen is due to the “Compliance Assistance Program” and a large number of replacement aligners included in the system. Compliance Assistance is the name of the system that reminds you to wear your trays for the right amount of time each day. A blue dot turns clear when the aligner has been worn the correct number of hours. Additionally, there are up to six aligners included with the Invisalign Teen system, so even if one is misplaced, you have more available. There is a dot that slowly fades over a 2-week period, telling you when it is time to change to the next one.

The Cost of Invisalign

Amazingly, the Invisalign Teen costs about $3,750. This is a standard cost. Moreover, Invisalign Teen sometimes corrects teeth faster than traditional metal braces! For more information about the average cost of Invisalign and the cost of Invisalign express follow the links to these blogs.

What Are Clear Aligners?

One excellent alternative to traditional metal braces is something known as invisible braces. This is sometimes called clear aligner and is an innovative treatment alternative that makes use of plastic aligners as a way to realign the patient’s teeth in a subtle yet highly effective way. Best of all, this type of teeth straightening does not use wires, brackets or other metal pieces to achieve the desired results. The aligners are made out of clear thin plastic making it difficult for others even to know that they are being worn. Using this type of technology to straighten teeth means that you can remove the aligners when necessary to eat or clean your teeth as required. This makes having teeth straightened more convenient and less demanding. Invisalign most of the time is an option, so it is important to understand the benefits and drawbacks so you can decide if it is right for you.

Benefits of Invisalign

  • Invisalign is clear and unnoticeable.
  • There are no risks of cuts or bleeding of wires and braces, and you will have little to no pain.
  • Invisalign does not alter your lifestyle. You can keep eating and living as before.
  • This solution is often faster, meaning you will have straight teeth in six to 18 months.
  • The cost of Invisalign is often lower than braces; we can offer the procedure for around $3,900 in most cases.
  • You will not have to go to the dentist as often—only every 6 to 10 weeks.

Drawbacks to Invisalign

You’ll find there are few drawbacks to Invisalign. However, you may have a bit of a lisp for the first couple of weeks as you get used to talking with the aligners in place. Additionally, if you have to remove your tray in public, you may find this uncomfortable at first—though this is something you can easily overcome.

 Invisalign is an alternative to braces

Invisalign is made of virtually transparent plastic. Until you have seen it in action, you may not believe how unobtrusive and efficient this orthodontic appliance is. Plus, some dental insurances will offer some coverage, or you may be able to use a flexible spending account to cover some of the costs too. Choosing Invisalign is a big decision; however, our orthodontist, a preferred Invisalign provider, will help you determine it is right for you. In many cases, Invisalign is the clear solution.
