4. What problems they can fix
Although there are a range of orthodontic systems available, your dentist will need to determine which type of treatment is most suitable for you.
Traditional fixed braces are often recommended for people who have complex orthodontic problems including excessive overcrowding of the teeth or a very deep overbite. They deliver precise and reliable results that can correct even the most complex problems. However, fixed braces can also be used to treat minor alignment issues too.
Invisalign treatment can also treat a range of cases, including some complex ones, but if you have severe orthodontic problems, you’ll likely be recommended a fixed brace. Your dentist can tell you if you’re suitable for Invisalign braces at your initial consultation.
There are also different types of Invisalign available, including Invisalign Teen, specifically designed for teenagers, and Invisalign Lite, which treats purely cosmetic issues.
