Cosmetic dentistry doesn’t just remove teeth stains or fix minor damage. We also use cosmetic treatments to correct dental misalignment. Using the Invisalign® system, your Cleveland, TX, dentist will talk about how we correct your uneven teeth, and how this benefits the health, beauty, and function of your smile!
The Oral Health Benefits of Straighter Smile
When we have uneven teeth, this could mean that even diligent brushing and flossing fails to reach and remove all food particles. The particles left behind will be broken down and consumed by harmful oral bacteria. Plaque then begins to form and coat the teeth, which weakens enamel and inflames gum tissues. You then have a higher risk of tooth decay and gum disease. For others, misalignment upsets bite balance or even strain the jaw joints, so painful disorders like TMD or even bruxism (chronic teeth grinding) develop. Don’t let the health, function, and beauty of your smile suffer, talk to our team.
The Invisalign® Treatment Process
First, we will examine your smile with digital x-rays and digital cameras images to identify and assess the factors behind your uneven smile. From there, we can offer the best treatment option. For many, this could be Invisalign®. Simply put, each day you will wear a set of plastic aligners for between 20 and 22 hours. After about two weeks, you will upgrade to the next set in the series, the process repeating for about a year for adults or up to 18 months for teens. The smile is then straightened without the need for metal braces!
Each aligner is not only clear, but will fit comfortably. To achieve this, and ensure treatment with precision, we will custom-make them. We begin by taking detailed images of your smile to create a 3D computer model. The model allows us to design and fabricate the aligners in a lab setting, each set customized for your smile. The aligners will also be removable, so you have an easier time brushing and flossing, and you also don’t have to avoid certain foods or change your diet.
We have this system for teen and adult patients, so to find out if you benefit, schedule a consultation with our team. We would love to help you obtain a straighter smile, and improve your oral health in the process. If you have any questions then please just give us a call today.
