If you are concerned about crooked teeth, you may assume that the only way to fix the problem is to receive conspicuous metal braces from an orthodontist. You may be unhappy about the impact braces have on your appearance, even if you are looking forward to finally correcting alignment issues. You can be relieved to know that with Invisalign, your dentist can provide a means of fixing a crooked smile that will not disrupt how you look. Invisalign treatment involves a sequence of clear plastic aligners, with each aligner bringing you closer to your goal of enjoying a smile unaffected by alignment flaws.
How Treatment With Invisalign Can Straighten Your Teeth
Invisalign aligners make progressive adjustments to your teeth. Each aligner you wear will make gradual corrections to the positions of teeth, with your dentist periodically checking on your progress. This procedure will eliminate the need for manual appliance adjustments, which need to be performed on traditional bracket and wire braces. Invisalign aligners can be removed by you, so that they are not in the way when you need to eat, or when you are attempting to clean your teeth.
How Crooked Teeth Can Affect A Person’s Overall Oral Health
Straightening your smile means improving how you look, but some patients are surprised to learn how this procedure also benefits their oral health. Your crooked teeth could be affecting how you bite and chew, and that compromised bite can lead to problems with your jaw joints. If you have spaces that overlap, you could find it difficult to clean areas of your teeth, meaning your cavity risk could be higher overall. Straightening your teeth can mean you no longer face these oral health risks.
