Can Invisalign Move Molars? Here’s What You Need to Know
Can Invisalign move molars?
Invisalign can be used to move and align molars. This is a common question that people have about Invisalign. Because it is a clear braces system, many people are worried that they will not be able to move their molars with the system. However, Invisalign has been shown to be effective in moving molars. There is also a lower risk of broken braces or wires with Invisalign, which makes it a popular choice for those who need braces. Molars are one of the most important teeth in our mouth as they play a key role in chewing. They are also one of the hardest teeth to move due to their size and location. Invisalign would have a large amount of difficulty making any movement that would not be considered slight. Although slight tooth movements can be attempted with Invisalign, it is not always successful. If more movement is required, it might be better to start with traditional metal braces first and then switch over to Invisalign to complete the treatment.
Indeed, some people find Invisalign more effective than traditional braces. Orthodontists are less concerned about emergencies when moving teeth with Invisalign because the aligners can be removed for eating and brushing teeth.
Orthodontists can use a simplified process when moving teeth with Invisalign. The orthodontist will take digital images of the patient’s teeth, create a treatment plan, and send it to the lab. There, technicians will make aligners that will gradually move the patient’s teeth.
