Will Invisalign Be an Effective Treatment Choice for Those Only Needing Single Arch Treatment?

Everyone – teens and adults alike – wants a straight and beautiful smile. Many of us will not achieve this naturally and rely on orthodontic treatment to shift teeth into their proper position and alignment. For many years, metal braces were the predominant treatment for misaligned teeth. However, Invisalign is now available to patients in the Highland, Michigan, area.

Invisalign clear aligners, as offered by the team at Milford Dental and Associates, are discreet, fast, and effective. Best of all, you can elect for single arch treatment if only your top or bottom teeth require treatment.

Single Arch Treatment

If you are looking to improve your smile and feel like you only require treatment for a single dental arch, Invisalign is available to treat bottom or top teeth only. Single arch treatment requires that you only wear an aligner on the arch that requires treatment. Because you will need fewer aligners, the cost of your treatment will be less.

When looking at traditional Invisalign treatment, you are required to wear a set of aligners on both your top and bottom teeth. When you elect for single-arch treatment, you only need to wear an aligner on one arch.

It is essential to understand that not everybody will be a suitable candidate for single arch treatment. Your dentist will perform an examination to determine if only a single arch requires treatment by looking at your occlusion and determining the needs of your smile.

Those who qualify for single arch treatment will likely have a few crooked teeth or have specific cosmetic goals in mind for improving their smiles. Those with a crossbite or overbite will likely require the treatment of both arches. Single arch treatment can be excellent for those with:

  • Gapped or spaced teeth
  • A misaligned tooth
  • Slightly crooked front teeth
