Can I Get Invisalign® If…? Answers to All Your Invisalign® Questions

If you’re considering Invisalign® to improve your smile, you may have some questions about whether or not you can get the treatment. Here, we answer some of the most common questions people ask about Invisalign® eligibility. Keep reading to learn more!

What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® is a type of clear aligner that can be used to straighten teeth. The aligners are made of a clear, plastic material that is virtually invisible when worn. Invisalign® is an alternative to traditional metal braces, which can be visible and uncomfortable. Through a series of custom-made aligners, Invisalign® can gradually move your teeth into the desired position.

Top Questions About Invisalign® Orthodontic Treatment

Can I get Invisalign® if I have gaps in my teeth?

Yes, you can! In fact, one of the main reasons people opt for Invisalign® is to close gaps in their teeth. If you’re concerned about spaces between your gapped teeth, Invisalign® can definitely help.

Can I get Invisalign® if I have crowded teeth?

Yes, you can get Invisalign® if you have crowded teeth. In fact, this is another common reason why people choose to straighten their teeth with Invisalign®. If your teeth are overcrowded, it can lead to a number of problems, including tooth decay and gum disease. Fortunately, Invisalign® can help alleviate these problems by correcting your bite and creating more space in your mouth.

Can I get Invisalign® if I have a crossbite?

A crossbite is when your teeth don’t line up properly when you bite down. This can cause a number of problems, including tooth wear, gum disease, and even jaw pain. Fortunately, Invisalign® can help correct a crossbite and improve your oral health.

Can I get Invisalign® if I have dental implants?

In most cases, the answer is yes. A dental implant cannot be moved like a regular tooth as the implant body is fixed, integrated into your jaw bone. Invisalign®, clear aligners, and traditional orthodontics cannot move dental implants. Thus, if you have a dental implant and are considering orthodontics, your treatment plan will be made taking this into consideration.

Can I get Invisalign® on just my top teeth?

Yes, you can! In fact, many people choose to straighten just their top teeth with Invisalign®. If you’re only interested in correcting the alignment of your top teeth (or only your bottom teeth), talk to your dentist about whether Invisalign® is right for you.

Can I get Invisalign® with a missing tooth?

Yes, you can get Invisalign® with a missing tooth (or missing teeth). However, it’s important to note that Invisalign® can’t be used to replace a missing tooth. If you’re considering Invisalign® and have a missing tooth, talk to your dentist to discuss your specific case and what options are available to you.

Can I get Invisalign® without insurance?

Invisalign® treatment can be a great way to improve your smile, but it can be somewhat expensive. Many dental insurance plans cover Invisalign® treatment the same way they cover braces. Your insurance may pay for a certain percentage of your Invisalign® treatment, or it may pay for a certain dollar amount. If you don’t have insurance, there are still options. As of July 2022, Southern Dental Associates is offering Invisalign® at a special price of $3,995 ($0 Down and Payments as Low as $85/mo.)

Can I get Invisalign® if I have a crown?

Invisalign® is an effective way to straighten teeth that have dental crowns. The clear aligning trays are custom fit over and around your existing crown. Tooth movement will take place just like a tooth without a crown.

Can I get Invisalign® if I have an overbite?

An overbite can be hereditary or caused by habits such as thumb sucking. If you have an overbite, Invisalign® can certainly help to align your teeth and improve your smile.

Can I get Invisalign® if I have a bridge?

Yes, you can get Invisalign® even if you have a bridge. The clear aligning trays are custom fit over and around your existing bridge. Tooth movement will take place just like a tooth without a bridge.

Can I get Invisalign® while pregnant?

If you are pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant, you may wonder if Invisalign® is safe. The answer is yes, it is! Pregnancy does not affect Invisalign® treatment. However, you may want to wait until after your baby is born to begin treatment, as your teeth can shift during pregnancy.

Can I get Invisalign® if I already had metal braces?

If you had traditional braces in the past and your teeth have since shifted, you may be a good candidate for Invisalign®. Invisalign® can help to align your teeth and restore your smile and confidence.
