Teeth that overlap affect more than just the appearance of your smile. Did you know that crooked teeth also affect your oral health?
When your teeth are not properly aligned, it can be difficult to keep them clean, which puts you at risk for tooth decay and gum disease. Misalignment of your bite can also contribute to a painful jaw joint disorder known as TMJ.
You may also feel self-conscious or embarrassed about your smile when your teeth are misaligned. Do you avoid smiling when you meet new people? Do you dread speaking at meetings or in front of the group at work? When you’re dissatisfied with your smile, it’s always on your mind.
You may have thought about straightening your teeth, but many people are put off by the thought of having to wear bulky metal braces. The good news is that Invisalign may just be the solution you’re looking for because it offers patients an option for straightening their teeth in a quick, effective, and discreet manner.
What Is Invisalign?
Instead of traditional metal brackets, Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to apply gentle pressure and straighten your teeth gradually over time. Your aligners need to be worn 20 to 22 hours per day, and you’ll receive new aligners every two weeks. Most Invisalign cases take approximately 12 to 18 months to complete, and the result is a straighter, beautiful smile that you’ll be proud to share.
What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign offers many benefits; however, the greatest is that your teeth will be straightened and no one will ever notice you are undergoing orthodontic treatment because your aligners are virtually invisible. Your clear aligners fit snugly over your teeth, making it easy to smile, talk, and interact normally with others.
Because your aligners are removable, they can be taken out for eating, brushing, flossing, and even the occasional meeting or big event. There are no restrictions on your diet like there are with traditional braces, and your home care routine won’t change at all throughout your treatment.
How Can I Get Invisalign?
Dr. Clarke is an Invisalign provider and he can determine if this system is right for your needs with an examination, x-rays, and photos. If you’re a good candidate for Invisalign, your aligners will be fabricated based on Dr. Clarke’s treatment plan. With 3-D technology, you’ll even be able to see what your newly aligned smile will look like prior to starting your treatment.
