While crooked or overcrowded teeth can be a source of embarrassment and make you self-conscious about your smile, they can also be more serious. Crooked and overlapping teeth can negatively affect your oral health by changing the stability and function of your bite, eventually leading to all sorts of problems.
What Are Invisible Braces?
Dr. John and Sara Gotwalt are Lititz, PA Invisalign® providers offering their patients treatment for a wide range of dental health and cosmetic concerns using its’ digitally designed system of clear plastic aligners. Invisalign is an easier and more discreet way for both adults and teens to achieve the attractive, confident smiles they’ve always wanted. The system will gently and gradually shift your teeth in a little over a year, with little impact on your daily activities.
Invisalign patients can still enjoy their favorite foods and easily maintain good oral hygiene using its’ removable aligners, designed to be worn for about 22 hours a day. Invisalign aligners are easy to remove as your teeth shift and new aligners are required based on your treatment plan. With traditional metal braces, patients had to endure uncomfortable tightening to continue their treatment.
Am I Too Old For Invisalign?
By adulthood, our teeth have grown in and do not naturally continue to move. However, that does not mean you are too old or it’s too late to consider orthodontic treatment to straighten teeth. Many adults have traditional metal braces or use Invisalign to treat mild to moderate orthodontic issues, and address minor shifting of teeth 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 than just a cosmetic concern. Crooked teeth are more susceptible to damage and decay and their crookedness may cause other issues in the future. Serious overbite and underbite problems can affect dental health by changing the stability of your bite. Also, teeth that are straight are easier to brush and floss, reducing your chances of plaque buildup, tooth decay and gum disease..
