What Happens If My Teeth Shift Again After Orthodontic Work?

Orthodontic work can make dramatic changes to your smile. For many patients, time with a retainer will be needed to keep those adjustments sustained. Unfortunately, some patients will notice over time that their teeth have begun to move again. This can lead to the frustrating situation of feeling like you need to undergo some kind of orthodontic treatment yet again. If you find yourself returning to the orthodontist, you may be surprised at what has changed. Improved technology can provide detailed images of your teeth, and help you avoid biting into a plastic mold to make an impression of your bite. Depending on how drastically your teeth have shifted, your dentist may be able to make adjustments with Invisalign.

Relying On Advanced Tools To Examine Your Orthodontic Needs

If you are concerned you may need additional orthodontic work after a shifting of your teeth, your experience with your orthodontist may have changed in ways you have not anticipated. Your orthodontist has advanced digital imaging tools at their disposal, which allows them to perform a detailed study of your current alignment issues.

You May Qualify For Invisalign If You Need A Follow-Up Adjustment

Invisalign is different from a standard orthodontic adjustment with bracket and wire braces. What you will have instead are a series of clear aligning trays, which help steadily bring your teeth back into their preferred positions. These are discreet, and removable, so they intrude less on your looks, and your life. If you are not approved for Invisalign, you can still have a more discreet adjustment made thanks to tooth-colored brackets with braces.
