Why Straighten Crooked Teeth
Patients with crooked teeth may suffer from a drop in their confidence due to their smile. Straightening crooked teeth may help provide some much need confidence. But aside from the confidence, straightening crooked teeth is great for your oral health. Patients with crooked teeth may have a higher chance of developing cavities, tooth decay, and even gum disease. When the teeth are misaligned, it becomes increasingly difficult to clean the teeth. Patients have a hard time flossing and brushing doesn’t effectively clean all parts of the teeth. Straightening crooked teeth allow patients to perform a healthy oral hygiene routine more efficiently, which minimizes their risk of developing dental issues like tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease.
About Invisalign Treatment
Invisalign treatment offers patients a wide range of benefits. During your consultation, Dr. Sara or Dr. John will carefully examine your teeth to see if Invisalign treatment is right for you. If Invisalign is right for you, Dr. Sara or Dr. John will start your treatment planning by taking images of your teeth to create your custom-made aligners. The aligners are designed to fit securely over the teeth, allowing patients to speak comfortably. Invisalign aligners are made of hard-soft plastic, which makes it an ideal material for patients due to its durability and comfortability.
Once your Invisalign aligners are completed, Dr. John or Dr. Sara will ensure they fit comfortably and securely over the teeth. Patients can expect to wear their aligners from anywhere from a few months to a year. The length of your treatment depends on the type of orthodontic issues you have and other oral health factors. Patients will need to replace their aligners every two weeks throughout their treatment. Patients can also enjoy the benefit of removable aligners that allows them to eat and perform their regular oral hygiene routine comfortably.
