If you’re unhappy with crooked teeth and avoid smiling for photos because of self-consciousness, Invisalign may be the answer you’re looking for. It’s an ideal solution for adults and adolescents who don’t want to wear ugly metal braces. Invisalign straightens your teeth without most people noticing.
Crooked teeth can cause problems that go beyond your appearance. When teeth are misaligned, they’re difficult to clean, which can lead to a greater chance of tooth decay or eventual tooth loss. If you’re reluctant to get traditional braces, reasons to consider Invisalign include:
Traditional braces make brushing and flossing difficult. With Invisalign, you’re able to brush and floss your teeth normally. You aren’t likely to see an increase in cavities. Another benefit of Invisalign is that treatment time is shorter than traditional braces, usually lasting six to 18 months, depending on how much straightening your teeth need.
Invisalign is a great alternative to traditional braces for treating several types of misalignment problems with your teeth or your bite. It’s especially popular with adults who would rather not have traditional braces for cosmetic reasons. Dental problems that Invisalign may be able to correct, depending on the severity, include:
The most important part of correcting bite or spacing problems is having the treatment plan prepared by a practitioner who has the expertise and experience to know what’s possible. This is what you’ll find when you trust Dr. Shalman with your alignment problems and other dental care.
The first step to teeth straightening with Invisalign is to set up a consultation with your Invisalign dentist. Once your cosmetic dentist determines that Invisalign is right for you, the steps of your treatment plan typically include:
Your teeth shift gradually during this process, but you may begin seeing results in a matter of weeks. You need to visit your invisalign dentist regularly to be sure your teeth are moving as planned and to pick up your next set or two of aligners.
