We often hear new patients ask, “can I get Invisalign® for bottom teeth only?” and the answer is yes! Invisalign clear aligners are available for the bottom teeth or top teeth of your jaw.
You may think that orthodontic treatment means you or your child must have a full set of braces or Invisalign, but that’s not true! In fact, thanks to advancements in orthodontic technology, we’re able to treat common orthodontic issues only showing in the top or bottom teeth.
Let’s discuss if this may be the best treatment option for your unique smile needs!
What is partial Invisalign treatment?
When you get braces or Invisalign for the bottom or top teeth, this is called single-arch treatment or partial Invisalign treatment. Although the majority of our Invisalign patients are treated using both arches (aka full orthodontic treatment), certain cases are best suited for a single-arch treatment.
On your first visit with us, Dr. Wiewiora or Dr. Dunn will perform a comprehensive orthodontic evaluation to determine the best course of treatment that suits your unique smile needs. All this can be done during your free consultation at our Lake Mary or Longwood office.
Single-arch treatment doesn’t involve just customizing aligners for your bottom or top teeth only and then monitoring your progress. Our orthodontists are also concerned with the alignment of your bite, which involves making sure your bottom and top teeth are in healthy alignment with each other.
Who can get Invisalign just for bottom teeth?
In certain cases, you can achieve your dream smile by using Invisalign only on your bottom teeth. However, this may not be true for you and only a comprehensive exam with an Invisalign expert can tell you if partial Invisalign treatment is best for you.
So what makes you a candidate for Invisalign bottom teeth only? Single-arch treatment is common if:
- You have mild crowding or spacing on only top or bottom teeth.
- You’ve experienced orthodontic relapse, aka you had orthodontic treatment before but haven’t been wearing your aligners.
- Your child is receiving early orthodontic treatment to pave the way for a more comprehensive treatment in the future.
How much does Invisalign for top teeth only cost?
The cost of single-arch Invisalign treatment is just like full Invisalign treatment cost, it varies from patient to patient. There’s many factors at play when considering your Invisalign cost so the best way to determine your unique cost is by visiting Wiewiora & Dunn Orthodontics for your free orthodontic exam.
Our team can also help lower your Invisalign costs through maximizing dental insurance benefits, special discounts, and by including our affordable in-house payment plans or other financing options.
