Is Invisalign® the Right Orthodontic Method for You? 4 Factors to Consider, Scarsdale, New York

Invisalign® has become a popular alternative to traditional metal braces for realigning your teeth. It’s discreet and offers flexibility, but the cosmetic dentists at New York’s Scarsdale Dental Spa & Wellness say there are a few things to consider before choosing this method. Consulting with an orthodontics specialist is the only way to know for sure if Invisalign is right for your needs, but there are a few factors to help you evaluate your suitability.

4 Considerations for Invisalign Treatment


Invisalign, which uses aligner trays that are nearly invisible, has worked wonders for teenagers and adults who are more sensitive about getting orthodontic treatment. However, it may not be the best option for children. Children’s teeth often are still growing when orthodontists recommend braces, and Invisalign can be less effective at straightening during this period.

However, they must be worn at least 22 hours each day, so you need self-discipline to use them effectively. If you’re forgetful or misplace things often, traditional braces might be your best option.


Convenience can come with a price tag. While the cost of Invisalign has decreased significantly, you should assess your financial situation before committing to treatment. The cost depends on the extent of your condition, so check with your dental insurance provider before starting Invisalign.


Invisalign isn’t for everyone. While it helps to fix gaps, overbites, crowded teeth, and other dental alignment issues, the severity of your condition will determine whether it’s an option. Ask a dentist if you’re a good candidate.

Invisalign is an excellent way to realign your teeth and revitalize your smile, and the cosmetic dentists at Scarsdale Dental Spa & Wellness can determine whether it’s right for you.
