The Benefits of Treating Misalignment

What happens when you have crooked, crowded, or overlapping teeth? In these situations, you may feel embarrassed about your appearance and could hide your smile from the world. In addition, you could have trouble thoroughly brushing and flossing each day, which means an increased risk of tooth decay and periodontal disease. For some, the pressure due to the changes in the balance of your bite leave you vulnerable to complications like TMJ disorder and bruxism (teeth grinding). Don’t remain self-conscious or watch your oral health suffer, talk to our team about treatment with our clear and cozy Invisalign® aligners.

Creating Custom Plastic Aligners

We want to ensure they not only fit comfortably, but that they also help guide your smile into proper alignment with precision and accuracy. To do so, we will custom-make your plastic aligners. To begin, our team will take detailed images of your smile with an intraoral camera, combining them to create a 3D impression that is far more accurate than traditional physical ones. In a special lab, experts will use the images and measurements we’ve gathered to begin designing and crafting your series of aligner from a clear and BPA-free material. When they’re ready, you will be able to start the treatment process, obtaining an even smile in as little as one year in some cases.

The Invisalign® Process

How does Invisalign® correct your uneven smile? To begin, our team will provide you with a series of plastic aligners, and you will wear a set for about a two-week period, 20 to 22 hours a day. Each set then gradually helps shift the teeth closer to their optimal positions, with results possible in as little as a year to 18 months, far shorter than the time required for traditional graces. Also, your orthodontics are removable, which make meal time simpler and allows you to brush and floss more thoroughly. If you have any questions about Invisalign®, or about starting treatment to correct your uneven smile, then contact our team today to learn more. We want to help you smile without hesitation, so you can enjoy your best smile!
