WHO WEARS INVISALIGN?

Most of our Invisalign® patients are in their 30s, 40s, and 50s. However, we also see some teenagers. If you’ve worn braces in the past, but experienced relapse, Invisalign might be a good option to correct it. It’s also an ideal option for people that have never worn braces before, but don’t want to wear traditional metal braces.

Invisalign For Teens & Athletes
Responsible teens who are set on having clear braces — but don’t want to wear ceramic orthodontics — may find that Invisalign best fits their needs. Dr. Clauss will discuss what’s involved and the responsibilities of such treatments, so that you and your teen can decide if Invisalign is the best choice. Invisalign is typically the best option for teens involved in sports as it lowers the risk for any mouth injuries. Making the decision to move forward with an Invisalign Teen case is something that you’ll want to talk to your son or daughter carefully about.
Invisalign For Adults
A majority of Dr. Clauss’ Invisalign patients are between 30-60 years old. However, we also treat older and younger adults, and even some teenagers. Adults make ideal Invisalign patients, because they’re committed to seeing their treatment through. Changing out aligners as directed, proper home care, and keeping appointments are important. As an adult, you know that your Invisalign treatment will give you great results as long as you do what you’re supposed to!
People With Cosmetic Concerns
Unless you’re inches away and purposely showing someone your Invisalign tray, it’s unlikely that other people will be able to see them on your teeth. Yes, they’re that clear! You can even use Invisalign as a whitening tray, so that you can enjoy a brighter smile while you’re straightening your teeth. Just ask us dentist how.
People Who Want A Low-Maintenance Option
Dread the idea of needing special tools to clean around your braces? Since Invisalign pops right out, you can just keep brushing and flossing as you normally would. If you have concerns such as gum disease, this is a healthier and more convenient option for you. Traditional orthodontic patients have limited diets to avoid breaking appliances. With Invisalign, you’ll take your aligners out during each meal. You can eat or drink whatever you want without worrying about breaking something.
Moderate to Severe Misalignment
Dr. Clauss has been an Invisalign provider since 2006. Thanks to his training and experience, we are able to address moderate to complex cases that might have originally be reserved for conventional braces. Mild cases have always been an option, but Invisalign today is even more advanced than it was 15 years ago. As such, we’re able to precisely correct severe tooth misalignment.
Orthodontic Relapsed Patients
It’s not uncommon to hear of adults that once had perfectly straight teeth from wearing braces, only to stop wearing their retainers. Slowly, the teeth relapse into their previous position, due to muscle memory and age. With Invisalign it’s easier to reign the teeth back in, without having to undergo comprehensive traditional braces all over again.

Here are a few of the teeth issues Invisalign can treat.

Awesome experience with my daughters first appointment this week. We even just received a super sweet personalized note in the mail! All staff made her feel comfortable as she was a little hesitant.
