Crooked or crowded teeth can do more damage than just causing embarrassment about your smile. They can also alter the stability and functionality of your bite, which can lead to various dental health problems later in life. Dr. Mark Sowell offers both Invisalign® and ClearCorrect invisible braces in Plano, TX. These orthodontic treatments may be used to treat a variety of dental health and cosmetic concerns with clear plastic aligners.
What Are Invisible Braces?
Invisible braces can discreetly treat issues such as crooked or misaligned teeth, overbite, underbite, and crossbite without the use of embarrassing and uncomfortable traditional metal braces. Both ClearCorrect and Invisalign use a series of clear appliances that can discreetly reposition your teeth in nine to eighteen months’ time. Dr. Sowell will plan your course of treatment and create clear plastic aligners that will gently reposition your teeth.
Unlike traditional metal braces, patients using invisible braces can still enjoy their favorite foods with no dietary restrictions. The aligners are intended to be worn for 22 hours each day and specially designed to avoid gum irritation. And when the patient wants to eat, perform oral hygiene or it’s time to switch to a new aligner based on the treatment plan, they can be easily removed.
Am I Too Old For Invisible Braces?
Even though our teeth are settled firmly into place by our 20’s, this does not mean that adults are “too old” for treatment with invisible braces to help straighten their teeth. Many adults achieve their dental goals with orthodontic treatment using invisible braces like Invisalign, ClearCorrect, or even traditional braces. Invisible braces are used to treat conditions such as underbite, overbite, and tooth spacing concerns as well as straightening teeth. They are also frequently used as a method of repositioning teeth that have shifted after prior orthodontic treatment.
