Metal braces are not the only option for correcting misalignment. If you have crooked, crowded, and overlapping teeth, then your Newhall, CA, dentist can offer clear and comfortable aligners created with a BPA-acrylic material. In today’s blog, find out how we use the Invisalign® system to help you enjoy a straighter and healthier smile.
Did you know that poor alignment could leave hiding places for food particles to become trapped, so bacteria break them down and lead to higher risks of plaque buildup, tooth decay, and gum disease? Poor alignment also increases the risk of jaw joint strain and bite imbalance, often leading to TMJ disorder and bruxism (teeth grinding) too. To avoid these impacts on your smile’s overall health, as well as the negative impacts on your overall appearance, then you should contact our team for treatment using Invisalign® clear aligners.
The Custom Aligners
Treatment means we take detailed digital impressions of your smile, using the information to design and create a series of clear plastic aligners. Each day, a set will be worn for 20 to 22 hours a day. After about two weeks, the patient upgrades to the next in the series. Over the course of about a year to 18 months, teens and adults could enjoy straighter teeth and better alignment. Being custom-made also ensures these aligners fit comfortably, helping you avoid gum and cheek irritation throughout the treatment process.
Removing Your Aligners
Did you know that your orthodontics can be easily removed? Aside from removing them occasionally for cleaning and soaking, you also have the ability to take them out before a meal. As a result, you don’t have to avoid certain foods the way you would if you had metal orthodontics. You can continue to enjoy your favorite snacks and meals! In addition, being removable means you take them out prior to brushing and flossing your teeth, so you have a much easier time preserving your oral health and avoiding tooth decay and gum disease. As long as you wear them as prescribed, you can also take them out before special occasions, such as a date, job interview, or a graduation. If you have any questions about treating misalignment with our clear and comfortable Invisalign® aligners, then contact our team today to eland more. We would love to help you enjoy better oral health, and a smile you cannot wait to show the world.
