Straighten Your Uneven Smile With Invisalign®

When you have dental misalignment, this can impact the health and beauty of your smile, leading to long-term issues. But instead of metal braces, we can offer a way to strengthen smiles with clear and comfortable aligners made from a plastic material. In today’s blog, your Newhall, CA, dentist talks about the Invisalign® system!

The Impact of Your Crooked, Crowded, and Overlapping Teeth

When you have misalignment, this could impact multiple aspects of your daily life. Trapped food and drink particles could be beyond the reach of a toothbrush or floss, which increases the risk of cavities and gum disease. The changes to your bite balance from misalignment could leave you vulnerable to TMJ disorder and even bruxism (teeth grinding). You could also feel uncomfortable with your appearance, which further impacts your overall oral health. But our team can prevent these complications by correcting your misalignment, and we can do so without the need for metal orthodontics.

Creating Your Invisalign® Aligners

Invisalign® employs a series of aligners custom-made for your smile. We craft them from BPA-free plastic that is clear in appearance. Each one is made bae on the detailed digital images we take of your smile, ensuring a proper fit and treatment with precision. We can use this to help teens and adults on their path to an even smile and better oral health. When the aligners are ready, you can start the treatment process.

The Treatment Process

Treatment is simple, requiring fewer office visits and results in as little as one year for some patients. Essentially, you will wear a set of aligners for about 20 to 22 hours a day on average, for about two weeks. After which, you will begin to wear the next set for the same amount of time, so you can continue to gently and carefully correct your misalignment. During treatment you don’t have to make major changes to your diet, as you can simply remove your orthodontics before meals. This removable ability also makes brushing and flossing more successful and simple, and also means you can take them out for special occasions, like job interviews or graduations.

We’re proud to offer a cosmetic approach to orthodontics for our teen and adult patients. If you have misalignment and want to know if Invisalign® is right for you, then please reach out to our team today to learn more and start your treatment. We look forward to helping you maintain better oral health and the ability to smile with confidence!
