Are There Special Cases in Which Someone Cannot Do Invisalign?

More and more teens and adults have chosen Invisalign over traditional metal braces. Invisalign is far more discreet and allows patients to straighten their teeth in a comfortable way. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign aligners can be removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. 


This allows patients to eat whatever they want and maintain optimal oral health without any issues. Invisalign may be a great option for patients who would like to straighten their teeth without anyone knowing. It’s also right for busy teens and professionals who hope to improve their smiles without disrupting their lives.

While Invisalign is the ideal orthodontic treatment for many patients, it is not right for everyone. It is not recommended for children, teens, or adults with teeth that are severely crooked or those with neuromuscular bite issues.

Compared to metal braces, removable braces such as Invisalign do not allow an orthodontist to have as much control over creating specific types of tooth movements. For this reason, Invisalign isn’t very beneficial for patients with the following:

Teeth that are rotated more than 20 degrees from their normal position. Teeth that are angled more than 45 degrees from normal. Tooth gaps that are more than 6 mm per arch. Severe overbites. Open bites where tooth extraction is required.
If you are wondering whether you are a good candidate for Invisalign, visit an Invisalign provider.
