Are my crooked teeth eligible for braces treatment?

Did you know that teeth placement is so unique that they’re a forensic tool for identification? While teeth crookedness is part of our unique identities, straightening them has many benefits beyond aesthetics

Maybe you’re a little skeptical, because you believe your teeth might pose a significant challenge to existing treatment methods. Heck, maybe you think your teeth are messed up enough to challenge your dentist!

Basically, you’re not sure if invisible braces providers like Zenyum can truly help you. 

Well, think again.

Dental technology dates way back 5000 years ago. In 1987, the first pair of invisible braces was introduced commercially. Fast forward to today, and millions have tried and tested the wonders of upgrading their smiles while skipping the brace face – and it works! You could even opt for a free assessment to determine your eligibility for invisible braces to save a trip (and money) to the dentist! 

Zenyum Clear Braces cater to a wide spectrum of teeth-straightening needs, with different treatment plans for different degrees of complexity. To get a better idea of which treatment plan you will need, here’s a summary of what teeth misalignments each treatment plan can solve.

1. Mild to moderate teeth conditions

If you wish to make minor aesthetic corrections to your slightly wonky teeth, ZenyumClear™ Aligners would be effective in giving you the smile you desire. 

Mild to moderate conditions include the ones below:

2. Moderate to complex teeth conditions

For those with more complex teeth conditions, fret not — there’s a good chance that they can be fixed with ZenyumClear™ Plus Aligners, an extension of ZenyumClear Aligners. 

 You may fall under this category if you have: 

  • Moderate crowding of teeth
  • Moderate spacing between teeth
  • Protrusive teeth  
  • Mild to moderate issues with your bite

3. Severe teeth conditions may require other orthodontic treatment methods

We’re going to be real with you – invisible braces cannot solve all cases, and there are cases where other treatment methods may be more effective.  

Such cases include: 

  • Large gaps between your teeth – invisible braces are unable to close gaps due to missing or previously extracted teeth
  • Severely protrusive or crowded teeth 
  • Skeletal biting problems, or malocclusions due to jaw structure

Unsure? Let our dentists assess your smile online for free!

So, if you’re smiling at yourself in the mirror and wondering if your crooked teeth can be treated with Zenyum, the answer is: probably, but we can’t make any guarantees.

Of course, the best way to know for sure would be to take our free Smile Assessment.  You’ll get some answers – and you may be pleasantly surprised.
