Crooked or overlapping teeth can be more than a source of embarrassment about your smile. They can also affect your oral health by changing the stability and function of your bite, which could lead to problems down the road.
What Are Invisible Braces?
Dr. Elizabeth Duling is a Owen’s Cross Roads, AL dentist offering treatment with clear aligners from respected manufacturers such as Invisalign and ClearCorrect for a wide range of dental health and cosmetic concerns. These invisible braces offer patients a discreet way to achieve a new smile and are suitable for both adults and teens. The series of clear plastic aligners they provide will gently and discreetly reposition your teeth in a little over a year, without affecting the look of your smile or your daily activities.
Patients wearing invisible braces can remove them when it’s time to eat, allowing them to still enjoy their favorite foods and easily maintain good oral hygiene while also correcting their smiles. The aligners are designed to be worn for about 22 hours a day without irritating your gums or sensitive areas of your mouth. They are also easy to remove for eating, oral hygiene or when it’s time to swap them out based on your treatment plan.
Am I Too Old For Invisible Braces?
Even though the teeth are set in place by adulthood, that does not mean you are too old or it’s too late to consider orthodontic treatment to straighten teeth. Many adults have braces or use Invisalign with positive results. Invisible braces can be used to treat mild to moderate orthodontic issues, and is also commonly used to correct minor tooth movement after previous orthodontic treatment. Invisalign and ClearCorrect also offer patients a discreet option to treat underbite, overbite, and tooth spacing concerns.
Why Should I Straighten My Teeth?
Straightening crooked or overlapping teeth is more than a cosmetic procedure. Crooked teeth are more prone to damage and decay and may cause more problems in the future. Serious overbite and underbite issues can also affect dental health by changing the stability of your bite. Plus, teeth that are aligned properly are easier to brush and floss, reducing your chances of decay and plaque buildup.
