Could you be the perfect candidate for invisible braces? Let’s find out!

Maybe you think you are too old for braces and that ship to a straighter smile has sailed, but what if your Woodbridge, VA dentists--Dr. invisalignMarv Thomas, Dr. Armen Zarookian and Dr. Melanie Allgeyer--told you that you could have a straighter smile without having to sport a metal mouth for a year or more? Doesn’t that sound amazing? Well, it’s all possible with Invisalign, the nearly invisible way to get a straighter smile.

How complex are your dental issues?

While Invisalign can handle a wide variety of mild to more severe cases, it can’t do everything traditional braces can. If you need more complicated tooth movements or if you have jaw abnormalities, then Invisalign may not be the best choice. However, the only way to know is by seeing your restorative dentist in Woodbridge to determine if Invisalign is right for your dental goals.

How old are you?

Are you a late teen or adult? If so, Invisalign could be the right option. While children can’t benefit from these invisible aligners, late teens and adults who have lost all of their baby teeth and whose second molars have come through completely are often great candidates.

How dedicated are you to your treatment?

Because Invisalign is a series of clear, removable aligners, this means you are responsible for your treatment. If you don’t wear your aligners often enough (about 20-22 hours a day), then you won’t get the results you want and you’ll delay your treatment. If you are ready to be responsible for caring and cleaning your aligners, then you may be right for Invisalign treatment.

Do you have health insurance?

One major factor that helps people determine whether Invisalign is the right choice is to take a look at their finances. Because Invisalign can be a bit pricier than traditional braces, it’s important to know that you have the budget for your aligners, have health insurance that may cover a portion of it, or have talked to us about a payment plan.

Turn to our Woodbridge, VA cosmetic dentists at The Dental Spa to get the smile you’ve always wanted. If Invisalign sounds like the right treatment for you, then it’s time you scheduled a consultation with us today.
