Not only are crooked or overlapping teeth a potential source of embarrassment but they can also negatively impact your oral health. Crooked and overcrowded teeth can affect the stability and function of your bite, which could lead to major dental problems, such as uneven wear or TMJ disorders, down the road.
What Are Invisible Braces?
Lanier Family & Cosmetic Dentistry is a Buford, GA Invisalign® provider offering teeth-straightening orthodontic treatment with clear aligners for a wide range of dental health and cosmetic concerns. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign is a discreet method of achieving a beautiful, healthy new smile for both adults and teens. This system of clear, plastic aligners will gently reposition your teeth in a little over a year, without a major impact on your daily activities.
Patients wearing Invisalign aligners can easily remove them to enjoy their favorite foods — which may be prohibited with traditional metal braces — and maintain good oral hygiene. Invisalign aligners are designed to be comfortable as patients are instructed to wear them for about 22 hours daily. As your teeth begin to shift into their new positions, you will be provided new sets of aligners to further your progress.
Am I Too Old For Invisalign?
Even though our teeth are all grown in and in their places 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 traditional metal braces or use the Invisalign system with positive results. Invisalign can be used to address mild to moderate orthodontic issues, and it can also be used to correct minor tooth movement after previous orthodontic treatment. Invisalign is also an option to treat underbite, overbite, and tooth spacing concerns.
Why Should I Straighten My Teeth?
Crooked or overlapping teeth are more than “just” a cosmetic problem. Crooked teeth are more prone to damage and decay due to being more difficult to brush and floss properly and this can lead to more serious problems in the future. Serious overbite and underbites can also affect the stability of your bite, compromising your oral health and making you susceptible to headaches and likely to unevenly wear down your teeth..
