What is the minimum age for Invisalign
The critical factor for successful treatment is patient compliance. If trays are lost or not worn consistently, results will be compromised and treatment time extended.
While some younger patients may struggle with this responsibility, others are perfectly equipped for successful treatment. This decision is best made on an individual basis.
Am I too old for Invisalign?
No. Invisalign is effective at any age.
How often do I need to wear the trays for successful treatment?
The more the Invisalign trays are worn, the more effective the treatment.
For successful treatment, trays must be worn essentially at all times except when eating or brushing your teeth.
Are there restrictions on what I can eat with Invisalign?
No! Because Invisalign trays are removed for eating, there are no restrictions on what you can eat.
However, it is important to make sure teeth are clean prior to replacing the trays, especially after consuming sugary food or beverages.
How do I know if I’m a good candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign is a great tool to treat some patients who want straighter teeth, but not everyone is a candidate. At Wirthlin Orthodontics, our initial consultation will consider all your orthodontic needs to determine whether Invisalign can help you achieve the appearance you desire.
