Invisalign is a popular alternative to traditional braces as it uses invisible braces to straighten teeth instead of metal wire and brackets. The results you will get from Invisalign are just as good as the results you will get from traditional braces, which is why it is becoming increasingly popular. One major benefit of Invisalign over traditional braces is that results can be achieved in as little as three to six months depending on the extent of the work that needs to be done.
Is it Possible to Get Invisalign Only for the Bottom Row of Teeth?
Yes, it is possible to get Invisalign for the bottom row of teeth only. Although a consultation with a provider is necessary to make definitive statements, it is certainly possible for most people. This is assuming that the patient has an ideal bite and that the alignment of the upper teeth is deemed good enough. If patients choose to get Invisalign for the bottom row of teeth only, it is necessary to apply great diligence when it comes to wearing your retainer to ensure that the teeth stay in place.
Keep in mind, however, that although Invisalign for only the bottom row of your teeth is possible, it is not necessarily the ideal situation, reasons for which will be outlined below.
You might be tempted to get Invisalign for your bottom teeth most likely because your upper teeth appear fine to you. They might be straight, etc and perhaps you are interested in saving money. Keep in mind that getting Invisalign for the bottom half of your teeth only is not likely to cost 50 percent less.
Further, teeth are more likely to stay in place over time if both bottom and top teeth are aligned. If the upper teeth fail to align with the bottom teeth, the results will likely not be stable over time. In other words, your treatment will not be as successful. Perhaps even more detrimental is the fact that it could aversely affect your jaw alignment as once you treat the bottom and not the upper teeth, the teeth will no longer fit together as they would if you were treating both at once.
