Crooked teeth are a common nuisance that affect more than your appearance. For instance, misalignment can make performing proper oral hygiene difficult by providing hiding spots for harmful oral bacteria. It can also interfere with your bite balance, causing undue pressure, excessive wear, and damage to your teeth. Straightening crooked teeth is as beneficial to your bite function as it is to your smile’s appearance, and with Invisalign® clear aligners, you can achieve impressive results without the hassle of traditional orthodontic braces.
Invisalign® is a system of clear, custom-designed plastic aligners that fit comfortably and discreetly over your teeth. They’re designed to guide crooked teeth into straighter positions by applying gentle, continual force. The cosmetic aligners are not only virtually invisible, but also removable, so you can enjoy your favorite foods, brush and floss your teeth, and take care of your smile without having to deal with brackets and wires. The ability to practice better and more effective hygiene means that you’ll have a greater chance of preventing gum disease and preserving your dental and periodontal health throughout the course of your treatment.
