When making the decision to correct problems with the spacing of your teeth, you may find traditional orthodontic braces somewhat unappealing. Their imposing metal presence in your mouth can cause a bit of a distraction, but the benefits of straighter teeth mean you should continue to explore your options. With clear aligners from Invisalign, we can help you correct teeth that are crowded, crooked, or overlap with one another. Their translucent appearance allows your Virginia Beach, VA dentist to prioritize esthetics and the function of your smile at the same time!
The Benefits Of Orthodontic Correction
When your teeth are not properly aligned, this problem goes far beyond the cosmetic appearance of your smile. Dental misalignment decreases the quality of your bite by not evenly distributing its force among each of your teeth. As certain teeth take additional force, they can quickly erode their protective enamel surface. This wears down their height and increases your potential for tooth decay and gum disease. This means that bringing your teeth into position can evenly distribute your bite’s force and help preserve your smile for years to come. Because straighter teeth are easier to clean, clear aligner treatment allows you to access pockets where bacteria once gathered, adding additional support for your oral health.
Treatment With Invisalign Clear Aligners
Wearing Invisalign clear aligners means not having to place permanent metal brackets or wires to receive your orthodontic treatment. This alternative system for correcting your bite provides a set of trays that you wear for the majority of your day and while you sleep. Because the success of your treatment corresponds to wearing them as directed, pay close attention to the instructions of your dentist. Most patients wear each set of trays for about two weeks before moving to the next set in their system.
Because they are removable, Invisalign allows you to more easily clean your teeth when brushing and flossing. While bracket-and-wire braces may collect cavity-causing debris when you eat, simply take off your aligner trays when enjoying a meal. Continue to enjoy the same foods as before receiving your orthodontic treatment!
