If you have crooked, crowded, or overlapping teeth, this could mean poor oral health and of course, poor esthetics too. But that doesn’t mean you have to rely on braces alone. Instead, your Newhall, CA, dentist could provide a cosmetic approach with our custom and clear Invisalign® aligners for teens and adults.
The Oral Health Issues Caused By Misalignment
With malocclusion, your oral health could suffer and your smile could be vulnerable to serious complications. For example, your misalignment could allow food particles to remain trapped between teeth, and beyond the reach of your toothbrush and floss, which increases the risk of cavities and infections, as well as gingivitis and gum disease. For others, the imbalance in your bite and the jaw joints strain could mean TMJ disorder and bruxism (chronic teeth grinding). Poor alignment could also lead to embarrassment with your appearance, and lead to negative impacts on your social life. Which is why you should contact our team about a cosmetic treatment option.
Crafting Custom Plastic Aligners
To begin, our team will first examine your smile to assess the cause and extent of your uneven smile. Once we do, we can choose the most appropriate treatment option. If we find you benefit from Invisalign®, we will use digital technology to gather a series of detailed images from multiple angles of your smile. We then combine them to create a 3D computer impression that is far more detailed than a physical one. This is used in a lab setting to design and craft a series of aligners from a BPA-free plastic material. These will be worn to correct your malocclusion!
The Benefits of Your Invisalign® Treatment
The treatment process is simple. You wear a set for 20 to 22 hours a day, for two weeks. At which point, you wear the next series of two weeks, and so on until you achieve a straighter smile. This is usually completed on a faster time frame than braces with optimal results possible in as little as one year. The process also requires fewer office visits, and they can be removed before a meal so you don’t have to avoid certain foods or snacks. Being removable also means you can take them out for special occasions, or before you brush and floss to make oral care much simpler.
