When teeth aren’t aligned properly, it’s highly important to correct their alignment with appropriate orthodontic treatment. The problems that can arise from your teeth being crooked are significant and can impact every aspect of your oral health, from your smile’s appearance to your bite’s function and more. To help more patients enjoy the benefits of straighter teeth, we offer a variety of orthodontic treatment options, including Invisalign® clear aligners that can straighten teeth more discreetly than traditional braces.
The value in straightening crooked teeth
The most important benefit to Invisalign® clear aligners is the same benefit as traditional orthodontic treatment – the straightening of teeth that are not properly aligned. For some patients, the appearance of braces and the accommodations necessary to care for them can cause them to hesitate to undergo orthodontic treatment. However, Invisalign® clear aligners are highly discreet, remaining virtually undetectable the entire time they’re in place over your teeth. This can encourage more people to undergo the treatment they need to straighten their teeth sooner.
The benefits of clear orthodontic aligners
The appearance of clear orthodontic aligners is a significant benefit for many people. However, clear aligners are designed to be more than just cosmetically appealing. The main difference between orthodontic aligners and orthodontic braces is that aligners don’t require brackets and wires to be bonded to your teeth. Instead, aligners are designed in a series to progressively straighten teeth as you change them throughout your treatment. This means they’re also temporarily removable, which provides benefits such as eating your favorite foods and brushing and flossing your teeth more conveniently every day.
Do you qualify for Invisalign® clear aligners?
For Invisalign® clear aligners to work, they have to be precisely designed to guide your teeth into straighter and healthier positions throughout the course of your treatment. This means clear aligners are digitally designed according to the path of movement that’s most appropriate for your teeth, making them appropriate for addressing a wide range of specific tooth alignment concerns. While their clear appearance and convenient treatment process make them more convenient, the digital design process makes clear aligners effective for many patients who need orthodontic correction.
