Is Invisalign Right For You?
Invisalign is a technology that uses clear molds shaped specifically to your teeth to help realign them. Teeth are able to be moved, horizontally, vertically and even rotate the teeth when need be. Invisalign uses progressive technology to slowly move your teeth, by changing out trays, typically on a weekly basis. Invisalign can be a great option for some patients who are looking to fix their teeth without the process and look of traditional braces.
Here are some conditions that Invisalign can fix:
- Gapped teeth – spacing between teeth that can lead to gum disease due to overexposed tissue
- Overbite – when the top teeth bite past the bottom teeth
- Under bite – when the bottom teeth protrude past the top teeth
- Cross bite – this occurs when both the top and bottom teeth are misaligned
- Open bite – when there are spaces between the top and bottom teeth while biting down
- Overcrowded teeth – when there is not enough space in your mouth for all of your teeth
Additional benefits to choosing Invisalign:
- Virtually invisible – with the clear plastic, Invisalign allows you to fix your teeth without unsightly metal that is used for regular braces.
- You’re able to remove the device at any time – Invisalign are removable and allow for the flexibility to take them out as needed for special occasions.
- You’re able to eat freely – Invisalign can be taken out during eating, which decreases the buildup that occurs with regular braces, due to the ability to brush and floss more freely after eating.
- Made of a comfortable, durable material – Invisalign are made from a soft, durable plastic that tends to cause less friction between the gums and therefore provides a more comfortable wearing experience.
