Can You Just Get Invisalign on Your Top Teeth?

25 Mar 2021 by  admin in Invisalign

Invisalign vs bracesThe answer is yes– you can treat just your top row of teeth– or your bottom row using Invisalign. This approach is known as a single arch treatment. Before making any decisions about what type of cosmetic treatment you would like to pursue– it’s always best to consult with your dentist. If you are interested in Invisalign as a solution to your cosmetic issues, the team at Long Island Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry will be glad to speak with you.

What Are the Benefits of Only Getting Invisalign on Your Top Teeth?

There are many reasons you might decide to opt for a single arch treatment rather than having both treated. Using a single arch treatment will reduce the cost of the Invisalign procedure. It can be a good option if you do not have significant cosmetic issues on both rows. It also means that you will be wearing fewer aligners, which can be easier and more comfortable for many individuals.

Single arch treatment is most often used to correct minor misalignment issues in your mouth. If your cosmetic issues are a simple gap in your teeth or a couple of crooked teeth, for instance, then a single arch treatment may be well-suited to your needs. If the aesthetic issues with your teeth are more extensive, on the other hand, then you may need more comprehensive oral treatment to achieve the smile you want.

Are There Any Drawbacks to Only Getting Invisalign on Your Top Teeth?

The potential risk of only having Invisalign treatment administered to one row of teeth is that the occlusion of your teeth may be affected. This is why it’s important to only receive Invisalign from an experienced dentist who will accurately plan your treatment.
