What does Invisalign look like?
Invisalign trays are designed and created to look like a perfect impression of your teeth. Invisalign aligners are thick enough to feel very comfortable on the teeth but thin enough to be virtually invisible when they are worn! Clear aligners are so discreet that we always recommend that patients store their aligners in their cases when they are not wearing them, as it can be easy to misplace or accidentally throw away clear aligners.
Can Invisalign fix an overbite?
Invisalign can fix a variety of orthodontic issues, including overbites and underbites. Small attachments can be added to Invisalign trays, and clear elastic bands can be wrapped around them. These elastics work very similarly to the elastic bands that patients with metal braces sometimes wear, and they are frequently used to gently correct patients’ bites. These elastics should always be worn with aligners as directed by your dentist.
Am I a good candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign used to be reserved for patients who had mild to moderate orthodontic issues. Fortunately, clear aligner therapy has improved drastically over the years, and many more patients are now eligible to utilize Invisalign. The best way to know for sure if you are an Invisalign candidate is by scheduling an orthodontic consultation with your Cedar Park dental team. Our office would be happy to assist you!
