When you have misalignment, this could not only impact the beauty of your smile, but also the health and function too. We can offer a solution, and one that doesn’t require the use of metal braces! In today’s blog, your Cleveland, TX, dentist could offer a series of Invisalign aligners.
What to Know About Misalignment
When you have misalignment, which includes crooked, crowded, and overlapping teeth, this could make thorough brushing and flossing difficult, increasing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. For others, misalignment could upset bite balance and the resulting pressure could mean the onset of TMJ disorder and bruxism (teeth grinding), leading to worsening discomfort. You could also feel self-conscious about your smile, and even try to hide it from the world. Instead, why not seek orthodontic treatment? This doesn’t have to mean traditional metal braces, as we could help teens and adults correct their malocclusion with a series of clear and comfortable Invisalign aligners.
Creating Your Custom Braces
Each set in the series has been custom-made specifically for your smile. Which means we take detailed images and measurements of your smile with digital scanning systems. This allows the aligners to be designed and crafted with precision and accuracy. Each one is crafted from a BPA-free plastic, and is completely clear. They will be barely noticeable when worn, and in addition, you can remove them! Being removable means you don’t have to alter your diet, as you simply take them out before a meal. Brushing and flossing is also much easier as again, you take out your aligners beforehand. The process also requires fewer office visits and provides results in a shorter time frame when compared to braces. In fact, many people see optimal results in as little as one year.
The Invisalign Treatment Process
How does the treatment process unfold? Well, you will need to wear a set of your clear braces for about 20 to 22 hours each day. A set is then worn this way for two weeks, at which point you upgrade to the next set in the series. This provides a convenient and cosmetic solution to dental misalignment. If you have any questions about this option, or if you want to see if Invisalign is right for you, then contact our team today to learn more or to schedule your consultation.
