Your dentist will advise that you have your cavities treated before you begin wearing Invisalign. While you can technically wear aligners while you have cavities, we consider cavities to be a larger oral health risk than misalignment.
If, like us, your goal is to create the healthiest smile possible, then getting your cavities treated first makes the most sense. Once the treatment is complete, then it may be possible to start Invisalign.
Treatment of cavities during a course of Invisalign is not practical as the tooth and jaw will need time to heal, meaning that patients would likely be stuck with a cavity throughout the Invisalign treatment, giving it ample time to do more damage to the tooth.
Treat your cavities first, with the help of your local Corona, CA Dental offices at Dental Care of Corona.
To know if you are a good candidate for Invisalign, with or without cavities, you will need to see a dentist have the overall health of your mouth examed, including x-rays.
