Crooked and misaligned teeth can be more than embarrassing when you smile. They can also negatively impact your oral health by making your bite unstable, hampering its functioning. This can lead to major dental problems as time progresses. Many patients with crooked and misaligned have been successfully treated by invisible braces and the leading designer of these helpful orthodontic appliances is Invisalign®.
What Are Invisalign Invisible Braces?
Sensational Smiles is a respected Plano, TX dental office offering mild to moderate orthodontic treatment using Invisalign clear plastic aligners to correct cosmetic dental issues. Invisalign offers a discreet method to achieve straighter teeth for both adults and teens. This system of clear plastic aligners will gently and discreetly reposition your teeth in a little over a year of treatment, with very little impact on your daily activities.
Unlike with traditional metal braces installed and maintained by orthodontists, patients can remove Invisalign appliances to enjoy their favorite foods and perform oral hygiene. Invisalign aligners are custom-designed for the wearer so that they can be comfortably worn for about 22 hours a day without irritating the gums or sensitive areas of the mouth. When the time comes, you will trade your current appliance out for another that will advance your treatment progress.
Am I Too Old To Use Invisalign?
Even though your teeth will all be grown in and established in their places by adulthood, that does not mean you are too old or it’s too late to consider orthodontic treatment — including Invisalign invisible braces — to straighten teeth. Many adults have been treated with traditional braces or used Invisalign with positive results. Invisalign can be used to treat mild to moderate orthodontic issues, and it can also be used to correct minor tooth movement after previous orthodontic treatment. Invisalign also offers patients options to treat underbite, overbite, and tooth spacing concerns.
Why Should I Straighten My Teeth?
Straightening crooked or overlapping teeth is more important than just resolving a potentially unattractive cosmetic issue. Crooked teeth are more prone to tooth decay or being cracked or chipped which can lead to further problems in the future. Serious overbite and underbite issues can also destabilize your bite, leading to uneven wear on your teeth and causing problems with your jaw alignment. Additionally, straight teeth are easier to properly brush and floss, reducing your risk of plaque buildup, tooth decay and gum disease.
