Severe Crowding
Severe Spacing
Loose Teeth, Jaw Locking or Severe Jaw Pain
Permanent Retainers
  • Severe crowding, spacing and rotated teeth
  • Jaw locking or severe jaw pain
  • Loose teeth
  • Untreated gum disease
  • Permanent retainers
  • People with certain medical conditions
      • Bisphosphonates consumption
      • Currently receiving immunosuppressive therapy, chemotherapy or radiation treatment of the head/neck
      • Osteoporosis
      • Rheumatism/arthritis
      • Periodontitis (severe case of gum disease)

Conditions requiring special attention

Excessive Plaque (calculus) on teeth
Loose Dental Fillings
Untreated cavities or caries

Some conditions, like these, don’t mean you are not suitable for become, but require to visit your dentists and get it fixed before focusing on straightening your teeth.

  1. Root canals
    Root canal-ed teeth are movable but please wait for 1 to 2 months after the procedure before starting your smile correction.
  2. Crowns
    If they are in the front 6 to 8 teeth, it will be on a case-by-case basis whether or not it is suitable. 
  3. Veneers
    Teeth can be aligned but there is a very low risk that a veneer might fall off if it is fixed to the front 6 to 8 teeth.
  4. Loose dental fillings
    The filling has to be re-done or it might pop off, especially if it is on the front teeth.
  5. Gum issues
    If you have swollen gum or excessive bleeding when brushing or flossing, these can be signs of gum disease. We advise to consult a dentist.
  6. Untreated cavities or caries
    These need to be fixed before straightening your teeth.
  7. Excessive plaque (calculus) on teeth
    If there is too much plaque, you need to go to the dentist before coming for a scan as we won’t be able to scan the actual shape of teeth.
