Did you know that our team can correct misalignment in teen and adult smiles without the use of metal braces? Instead, we could use Invisalign® aligners to shift the teeth and offer a more attractive smile, often in as little as a year. In today’s blog, your Fort Worth, TX, orthodontist talks about the benefits of this cosmetic system.
The Benefits of an Even Smile
When you have an even smile, this means you can smile with confidence. This also means you can enjoy better oral health. An even smile is much easier to brush and floss each day, which limits the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. This also means you have a more balanced bite, limiting the risk of complications like TMJ disorder or bruxism (chronic teeth grinding). With an even smile, you have an attractive and healthy smile!
The Invisalign® System
The Invisalign® system corrects minor and more severe cases of misalignment in both teens and adults. The system involves wearing a set of plastic aligners, which are clear and fit comfortably, each day for 20 to 22 hours. After about two weeks, you will upgrade to the next set in the series. Over time, this process begins to shift your teeth into optimal positions. The total treatment time depends on the severity of your misalignment, but is usually a year for adults and up to 18 months for teens. The aligners can also be removed before meals or prior to brushing and flossing, so you don’t have to alter your meals and you can more easily clean your smile.
Starting Your Care Now
If you would like to start your care now, you could use your 2021 dental insurance benefits before they expire! We will take detailed digital images of your smile with the iTero® system, creating a digital impression that is more accurate than a physical one crafted with molds. We use this information to ensure each aligner set is custom-made for your smile. We will guide your treatment and help you start your path to a straighter smile. If you have any questions about this system, or if you would like to start treatment now, then contact our team today to learn more. We would love to help you start 2022 on your way toward a straighter and healthier smile, one you can’t wait to show off to the world.
