Am I a Candidate for Invisalign®?

Northwest Portland, The Pearl District and Downtown Portland

As an alternative to conventional braces, Invisalign is a popular and effective solution for treating a broad range of teeth spacing problems and bite conditions.

Like any type of orthodontic treatment, however, Invisalign is not the best option for every patient. The first step in determining whether Invisalign is the right choice for your specific condition is a consultation with Portland, Oregon, orthodontist and Invisalign provider Dr. JD Miller of Portland Pearl Orthodontics.

If you have one of the following bite conditions or teeth alignment issues, you may be a candidate for Invisalign:

  • Crossbite
  • Crowded teeth
  • Overbite
  • Spaced teeth
  • Underbite

Other qualities of ideal Invisalign candidates include:

  • Be in good overall dental health with no untreated cavities or gum disease
  • Have a fully developed mouth; Invisalign is suitable for adults and many teens
  • Be a nonsmoker
  • Be committed to wearing Invisalign aligners as directed and following treatment guidelines

Generally, if you’re a good candidate for conventional braces, you’re likely a viable candidate for Invisalign.
