When your teeth are poorly aligned, you have more to worry about than just an issue with smile flaws. Gaps, overlaps, and other forms of malocclusion can make it more difficult to bite comfortably, and may add to the difficulty of preventing problems with tooth decay and gum disease. At our Moreno Valley, CA dentist’s office, we can you through your options for orthodontic treatment. Many people are able to fix these frustrating issues with Invisalign appliances, which are discreet as well as removable. This can make the process of fixing malocclusion more convenient, and it can still deliver the correction you desire!
How Invisalign Differ From Other Orthodontic Appliances
Traditional metal braces have been effective for many cases where teeth needed to be realigned. These appliances rely on wires attached to fixed brackets, with the wires pulling teeth gradually into better positions. Invisalign provides a different approach. Instead of wearing a fixed appliance, you will use a series of clear aligners to move your teeth progressively into their ideal positions. You can appreciate having the ability to take out your appliances whenever they are in your way, and you can also be glad to have aligners that are difficult to see.
If Invisalign is not recommended for you, and you still want to fix your smile discreetly, we can discuss the use of clear braces. While clear braces rely on a bracket-and-wire construction, they are made with materials that blend in easily with your enamel, so they are difficult to observe.
Planning Your Smile Adjustment
After an initial planning period, your dentist will be able to provide a set of aligners that are intended to fix your smile. Each aligner you wear is another step closer to your goal for straightened teeth. To stay on your timeline for treatment completion, you should keep them in place for as much time as possible. With that said, they easy easy to remove whenever you eat, or when you clean your teeth – in other words, they can be quickly slipped off at any time they might be in your way!
Straighter Teeth Can Deliver Oral Health Benefits
Straightening your smile can give you a newfound confidence in your smile. By fixing problems with gaps and overlaps, you can give yourself a more symmetrical appearance while addressing a conspicuous flaw. Through this work, you can also make changes that improve your bite function and reduce stress on your jaw. Straightening teeth that overlap can help with your oral health, as these areas where overlapping occurs can be difficult to clean properly.
