3 Reasons You May Be a Good Candidate for Invisalign

Invisalign® has really changed the course of orthodontics by creating options beyond traditional metal braces. If you are interested in straightening your teeth with Invisalign, the only question that remains is whether or not you’re a good candidate for the procedure and can move on with it.

You Don’t Like the Idea of Braces

One of the biggest reasons people turn to Invisalign is because they don’t want to deal with braces. If you’re looking for an orthodontic treatment that’s more subtle than the noticeable look of metal brackets and wires, then that’s a good first step toward being an Invisalign patient.

You Don’t Require Severe Realignment

Invisalign can straighten out issues like crowding and gaps. However, it’s best suited for those who only need mild to moderate realignment. If the current position of your teeth requires more serious movement or even jaw realignment, then you should look to other treatments to get the results you want.

You Can Commit to the Treatment

Many people like Invisalign because they can take the alignment trays in and out, but that also means that you need to be diligent about how and when you’re wearing them. It’s tempting to leave them out for longer than you’re supposed to, but doing so can delay or disrupt your treatment. You should be dedicated to wearing the trays for at least 22 hours a day and following the treatment as prescribed by your doctor.

Dr. Nguyen and his staff are extremely competent, friendly and professional. He is very thorough and explains everything very clearly. Finally I feel like I am in good hands when it comes to dental care.

Great overall experience getting a dental cleaning. Very friendly staff, beautifully designed office, and a comfortable experience watching calming Netflix nature programming while in the chair. Complimentary beverages are in the waiting room and so is a little play area for kids.It felt to me that this was a patient-focused family practice as opposed to a cold, corporate dental mill trying to churn through as many patients as possible.I’ll definitely be coming back here for all my dental needs and I highly recommend.

Dr. Nguyen and his staff are very welcoming and they provide an excellent experience every time I visit. I’ve only been here twice for annual checkups but would definitely consider and recommend this place to anyone who appreciates good customer experience and a very thoughtful approach to making sure that you feel at home. I have some procedures set up for later in the month and I must actually be the only person in the world actually looking forward to a dentist appointment.
