Is Everyone a Good Candidate for Clear Aligners?

April 30, 2021 4:54 pm

The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for clear aligner therapy is to schedule a consultation at Meason Orthodontics with our expert orthodontist, Dr. Meason! We will discuss the alignment of your teeth, your lifestyle, your smile goals, your budget, and any other questions or concerns you may have. However, it’s helpful to be as prepared as possible for your consultation. Let’s review some common situations to help you figure out if you are eligible for clear aligners therapy.

  1. You had braces years ago, but your teeth have moved
  2. Did you have braces as a teenager? Perhaps you didn’t wear your retainer as recommended or it got lost or broken. As an adult, if your teeth have shifted and look crooked again, clear aligner therapy may discreetly straighten your teeth without having to wear a second round of traditional braces.

  3. You have mild to moderate crowding, gaps, or crooked teeth
  4. Clear aligners therapy is a great option if you have mild to moderate alignment issues that need correcting. Straightening your teeth will make it easier to clean them and give you a confidence boost.

  5. You have severe alignment problems
  6. If you have severe misalignment, clear aligners therapy may not be for you. Traditional braces are better at correcting teeth with complex alignment issues or severe bite problems. But don’t worry–there is another discreet option for you! Meason Orthodontics offers ceramic braces, made with transparent ceramic and tooth-colored wires.
