If you have crowns, you may be wondering whether you can get Invisalign. The answer to this very common question is “yes.” In fact, Sims Orthodontics actually recommends Invisalign to many patients with crowns.
Invisalign may be the ideal option for you if you have crowned teeth but are longing for straighter teeth and a more beautiful smile. This orthodontic treatment involves clear aligners that gradually straighten teeth. If you choose to undergo Invisalign, you can expect your aligners to be custom made to fit your particular mouth.
Since Invisalign aligners do not actually bond to teeth like traditional metal braces, they are a great choice. With Invisalign, you don’t have to worry about your crowns becoming loose or detaching from your teeth. Dr. Sims may attach tiny clear attachments to your teeth to protect your crown. If he decides to this, know that the process is quick and painless.
If you’re wondering whether Invisalign makes sense for your crowned teeth, ask yourself the following questions:
• Are my teeth misaligned?
• Are my tooth rooted soundly?
• Are my crowns attached and sealed to my tooth well?
Invisalign may be worthwhile for you if you answered yes to each of these questions. However, to find out whether you should opt for Invisalign, it’s best to consult an experienced orthodontist like Dr. Sims of Sims Orthodontics.
