Am I a Good Invisalign Candidate?

General & Cosmetic Dentist serving Hoboken, Jersey City & Hudson County areas of New Jersey


Invisalign Candidate - Hoboken dentist - Dr. Frank DePaolaDue to its ability to straighten your teeth using clear plastic aligners that are virtually invisible to others, Invisalign has become one of the most popular orthodontic treatments, particularly for adults. But before you decide whether you want to move forward with your Invisalign treatment, you should know whether the procedure is right for you.

Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners that will gradually straighten your teeth over time. It provides effective results on the vast majority of mild to moderate bite alignment problems, including:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Gapped teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Open bite

While Invisalign is an excellent way to correct milder forms of these conditions, you may need to undergo traditional orthodontics if your alignment issue is severe.

In addition, it's important that you have healthy teeth and gums in order to be considered an Invisalign candidate. While cavities or gum disease won't necessarily prevent you from using Invisalign, you'll need to get these conditions under control prior to undergoing your orthodontic treatment.

During your initial consultation at our Hoboken dental office, Dr. Frank will perform a thorough evaluation to assess your oral health as well as the alignment issues you are experiencing. Based on this evaluation, he will recommend the ideal orthodontic solution to achieve your goals.
