Examining the Pros and Cons of Invisalign®

Invisalign® Revolutionized Orthodontics, But Is It Right for You?

Invisalign® transformed the world of teeth straightening with its invisible aligners. While it offers discreet improvement and avoids harsh metal, choosing the best orthodontic solution requires understanding the pros and cons of Invisalign®. Before consulting Dr. Funk, explore what Invisalign® can effectively treat:

Invisalign® to the Rescue: Pros

  • Crooked Teeth: Say goodbye to misaligned teeth! Invisalign® gently guides them into place for a confident smile.
  • Overbite & Underbite: Whether your top teeth overlap or your bottom jaw protrudes, Invisalign® can adjust their positions for proper alignment.
  • Crossbite: No more teeth clashing awkwardly. Invisalign® can reposition teeth for ideal bite alignment, eliminating discomfort and improving jaw function.
  • Gaps & Crowded Teeth: Both large spaces and overlapping teeth can be tackled by Invisalign®. Closing gaps enhances aesthetics while correcting crowding improves oral health by preventing food trapping and plaque buildup.

Knowing Your Limits: Cons

While Invisalign® shines in many cases, there are situations where traditional braces offer advantages:

  • Severe Orthodontic Issues: Complex alignment problems may require the stronger forces of braces for effective correction.
  • Intrusion & Extrusion: Moving teeth significantly into or out of the jawbone might be better suited for precise control with braces.
  • Continued Advancements: Invisalign® constantly evolves, and what wasn’t possible before might be achievable now.
