Is there anything you can do about malocclusion – poor smile alignment – if you do not wish to wear metal braces? As effective as they can be at resolving problems with smile gaps and overlaps, bracket-and-wire braces can feel less than exciting to patients because they are permanently fixed in place, and because they are difficult to wear without attracting unwanted attention. At our Moreno Valley, CA dentist’s office, we can discuss the benefits of Invisalign treatment over traditional metal braces. With your clear aligners, you can resolve problems with gaps and overlaps between teeth without drawing unwanted notice, and without having to wear an appliance that is permanently fixed in position on your smile.
Poorly Aligned Teeth Can Affect Your Life In Several Ways
There is more to malocclusion than just smile concerns that you will want to address. By fixing the positions of your teeth, you can improve your bite function and lower your risk for TMJ disorder or uneven wear and tear on your enamel. Better-aligned teeth can also be easier to keep clean, so you will have an easier time preventing oral health problems over time. Of course, there is no reason not to feel excited about the potential for smile improvements! You can be happy to share a more symmetrical smile, one free of flaws like gaps and overlaps, at the end of your procedure!
Discussing Treatment With Invisalign
Invisalign treatment relies on a series of appliances that you wear throughout the day. These aligners are removable, so you can have no trouble taking them out when you need to eat or clean your teeth. When you have them in place, you can be happy to see how little attention they draw thanks to their clear design.
Life After Orthodontic Work
What can you expect when orthodontic treatment is finished? You can certainly look forward to showing off a more attractive smile, but you can also be happy with results that lead to better bite function and fewer risks for tooth decay and gum disease. By keeping up with regular dental exams after your adjustment, you can make sure that you continue to enjoy a healthy, attractive smile that is free of issues that require further care.
