Straight Teeth Are Healthy Teeth
If you’re seeking orthodontic treatment, you’re probably concerned with the appearance of your teeth. But the benefits of straight teeth go far beyond the aesthetic.
Teeth that aren’t properly aligned put extra pressure on the rest of your teeth, creating problems like excessive tooth wear, teeth grinding, and even Temporomandibular joint disorders. When teeth are crowded, it’s difficult to clean properly around all surfaces, which can lead to decay and gum disease.
Many recent studies indicate a direct link between a healthy mouth and a healthy body. Research is showing that chronic diseases of the mouth (like gum disease) can contribute to serious health problems like heart disease, diabetes, respiratory disease, low birth weight in newborn babies, and Alzheimer’s.
The Invisalign Difference
So how is Invisalign different from other orthodontic treatment? The main difference is that traditional braces work with wires and small brackets attached to the teeth for the duration of treatment. Invisalign, on the other hand, uses a series of clear removable aligners to get your teeth back in place.
Invisalign aligners are made of a smooth, comfortable plastic material that won’t irritate sensitive tissue in your mouth. Since they're removable, oral hygiene is easy and efficient because you don't have the added concern about cleaning around brackets and wires. Invisalign aligners can also be removed for eating or for a special social event like a wedding or reunion.
After carefully planning your treatment, we’ll provide you with several sets of clear aligners that progressively move your teeth into the proper position. Just wear each set for about two weeks, then move on to the next set.
Invisalign aligners are appropriate for anyone with a mild misalignment, and we've treated patients of all ages. For adults, treatment can be completed in as little as a year. Treatment times for teens are similar to that of traditional braces.
