Living with a crooked smile can be challenging. It could make you feel insecure about the way your teeth look, which can make you feel less inclined to smile or laugh. Crooked, misaligned teeth can also increase your risk for developing tooth decay, gum disease, or TMJ disorder. Straightening lowers these risks and could increase your desire to smile. If you qualify, Invisalign® clear aligners over could be a good option to consider when wanting to straighten your teeth.
Discreet, Efficient Treatment
Invisalign® clear, plastic aligners are nearly invisible from a distance and are nearly imperceptible in photographs. Many people put off straightening their smile because they worry about what they will look like during treatment. Not only is it more discreet, Invisalign® offers a shorter treatment time than traditional orthodontic treatments. Invisalign® treatment typically lasts between nine to 18 months. Over that time, your teeth and bite will incrementally shift into the proper alignment.
Better Hygiene and Less Irritation
Unlike with traditional braces, Invisalign® clear aligners can and should be removed during eating, drinking, and your oral hygiene routine. Removing the aligner gives you the opportunity to enjoy your meal or beverage without worrying about the remains getting stuck in your mouth to cause problems. Traditional braces could be somewhat cumbersome when it came to keeping them clean and free bacteria. Leaving bacteria in your mouth increases your chances of developing tooth decay or gum disease. Invisalign® gives you a better chance of keeping your mouth clean and healthy during treatment. It is very important that Invisalign® clear aligners are worn at least 22 hours each day. During the wear time, the aligners will fit snugly along your teeth. The plastic can be much less irritating to the soft tissues of your mouth than traditional braces with metal brackets and wires.
