When you have uneven teeth, your misalignment could impact not only the beauty of your smile, but your overall health as well! But we also know that as adults, you worry about the changes braces could bring to your professional appearance. Fortunately, your Brighton, MA, dentists have an alternative to braces with clear Invisalign® aligners.
The Causes of Your Uneven Smile
How do we end up with crooked, crowded, or overlapping teeth? The causes could be linked to issues in childhood with primary teeth falling out on schedule, or with the eruption of the permanent teeth. In addition, issue with the growth and development of the jaw could be a factor as well. As an adult, losing our natural teeth could cause nearby teeth to drift, allowing misalignment to develop. When we examine your smile with advanced digital imaging technology, we will identify the cause and assess the extent of your misalignment. From there, we will choose the best treatment option, which could include Invisalign®.
The Benefits of Treatment
When you correct your misalignment, you may feel more confident in the appearance of your smile. This could also help you make a great first impression when meeting new people. An even smile is also much easier to brush and floss, which lowers the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Even smiles also prevent strain on the jaw joints, so you’re less likely to develop painful disorders like TMD or bruxism (chronic teeth grinding), which are a source of headaches, jaw pain, and for some, damaged teeth. Essentially, straightening your smile improves the health, function, and beauty of your smile.
The Invisalign® Approach
You’re never too old to start treatment! With the Invisalign® system, we don’t use brackets or wires at all. Instead, we take detailed images to create 3D computer model and design a series of aligners. Each one is crafted from a BPA-free plastic material that is completely clear. When worn, your orthodontics will be nearly invisible! You wear a set for about 20 to 22 hours a day, upgrading to the next set after about two weeks. Total treatment is often as little as one year. They can be removed before meals, so you don’t have to worry about food being stuck in braces. If you have any questions about our clear aligners, then please contact our team today.
