Is Invisalign Right for Me

At Sonneveld Orthodontics, we're proud offer a variety of orthodontic treatments to patients of all ages in Oak Forest, Tinley Park, and Orland Park, IL. While braces are our most popular treatment, they're not the only option, and Invisalign is one of the most convenient alternatives. Invisalign is a removable, virtually invisible orthodontic treatment that can help a wide range of patients achieve a new smile – and if you're wondering if Invisalign is right for you, we can help.

1. Your Orthodontic Condition Is Moderate, Not Severe

Invisalign can treat a wide range of orthodontic conditions, but in some cases, there are malocclusions (bad bites) that are too severe for Invisalign to treat. In these cases, we may recommend pursuing braces or another form of orthodontic treatment. That said, Invisalign technology has advanced significantly since first hitting the market, and Invisalign can treat many of the most common orthodontic problems.

2. You're a Teenager or Adult

Invisalign is a convenient, popular option for both teenagers and adults, but we don't recommend Invisalign for early orthodontic treatment. Compliance can be difficult for children, and Invisalign is less effective at treating baby teeth. For this reason, we only recommend Invisalign for adults and Invisalign Teen for adolescents.

3. You're Committed to Achieving a New Smile

Invisalign are removable aligners that are extremely convenient, but they can also pose a challenge. Despite how easy it is to remove the aligners for eating and oral hygiene, they only work while they're in your mouth and on your teeth – so it's possible to slow down Invisalign treatment if you aren't wearing the aligners enough. Success with Invisalign requires diligence in wearing your aligners, so you'll have to keep that in mind before choosing it as a treatment method.
