Can You Get Invisalign If You've Already Had Braces?
Of course! As a matter of fact, Invisalign is often a great option for those whose teeth have relapsed after spending years in braces.
Orthodontic treatment is quite the investment. Right now, you probably regret not taking better care of your teeth after having braces. Without regular checkups and wearing your retainer every day, teeth are prone to shifting back to their original positions.
So now you wonder whether it's worth it to “clean up the mess” with Invisalign.
You'll be pleased to hear that Invisalign is often not only a possibility, but it’s one of the best options for correcting orthodontic relapse.
Why Go With Invisalign?
You could opt to put on classic braces again to readjust wayward teeth. But many adults prefer to go the metal-free route. Here's why so many are choosing Invisalign:
- Much more discreet than braces
- Removable for convenient cleaning
- Don't limit you for what you can eat since you remove them for meals
- Greater comfort over metal brackets and wires
A Few Caveats
Just remember that Invisalign, like any other orthodontic option, is not forever. You still need to carefully maintain the work you put into your smile. This means wearing a retainer as directed, keeping up the excellent oral hygiene, and visiting Dr. Dona W. Prince for regular dental checkups.
Invisalign is great for tweaking small discrepancies resulting from an orthodontic relapse. But if your teeth have fallen back into a very complicated case, there's a chance you'll need something more.
To find out whether your teeth qualify for Round Two with Invisalign, schedule a visit to Dona W. Prince, DDS for a consultation.
