Braces options for adults who need to fix crooked, misaligned teeth

Several adult braces options exist nowadays—you’re not just stuck with metal braces as your only option. Adults with crooked teeth can get Invisalign clear braces if you are a good candidate.

What makes someone a good candidate for Invisalign? A consultation with a cosmetic dentist is the BEST way to determine if you can get Invisalign clear aligners instead of metal braces.

Is Invisalign Better than Braces? Who can get Invisalign clear braces?


As mentioned, a consultation is the BEST way to determine if you can get Invisalign as an adult.

Typically, however, if you can relate to any of the following problems, you probably qualify for Invisalign clear aligners:

  • If your teeth are crowded, Invisalign may be right for you.
  • If your teeth are crooked, Invisalign might be able to straighten your teeth.
  • If you have a pretty severe overbite, Invisalign might be able to fix that problem.
  • If you have a pretty severe underbite, Invisalign may be the right solution for you.
  • If you have gaps between your teeth, Invisalign can most likely fix this common dental problem.

You see, Invisalign can fix a lot of common dental problems. But as we said, the only way to find out if it’s right for you and to get started with treatment as soon as possible, is to call your cosmetic dentist. The sooner you start, the sooner you can feel proud of your smile.

Speaking of time and getting started right away…how long will you need to wear Invisalign braces?

Treatment time varies from patient to patient. However, treatment time for Invisalign is usually much shorter than treatment time for metal braces. This all depends on your unique dental situation, however.

Once you and your dentist decide that Invisalign is right for you, he or she will create a treatment plan for you. This includes the period of time it will take to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile you deserve.

Your dentist will discuss the fact that patient compliance is crucial when wearing Invisalign clear aligners. You must wear the aligners for the specific amount of time that the dentist recommends. If you don’t comply, your treatment time will be prolonged.

Patient compliance is critical with Invisalign, but well worth the effort once you see your beautiful smile!
