Who is Invisalign for?

Mar 3, 2022

Not every person is a viable candidate for every procedure offered at our Manotick dental office. That includes Manotick Invisalign. The great majority of people can significantly benefit from this procedure.

Invisalign is an excellent orthodontic choice because the results are very positive, and it is easier and more comfortable than using metal and wires. Very often, other people don’t even know you are in the process. Using a clear plastic aligner will help adjust your bite so that your teeth are gently moved into the optimum position.

Manotick Invisalign has been successful in correcting:

  • Overbites and underbites
  • Gaps
  • Overcrowding
  • Crooked teeth

Is Invisalign right for me?

Bite issues

Invisalign has proved to be successful in mild to moderate bite issues. But those individuals with severe correction needs may need more drastic measures involving the jaw bone. Invisalign is not appropriate for bone issues.


Another issue that can prove challenging for some people is compliance. The appliance must be worn at least 22 hours a day and is removed only for eating, drinking, and oral hygiene. If they are not worn for enough time, they won’t work.  


They are also not appropriate for children, tweens and younger teens. The simple fact is that their teeth are still developing. Traditional braces are a better choice.


Economics also plays a part. The charge for Invisalign is higher than for traditional bracing. Consult your dental insurer and review your budget before committing.

Beautiful smile with invisible braces!
