08 Dec Straighten Your Smile With Invisalign®
You don’t have to hide your smile and live with dental misalignment. We can offer an option to correct misalignment and also remain practically invisible during treatment. Our Dallas, TX holistic dental office provides Invisalign® to correct uneven teeth, which are clear, removable, and comfortable.
The Causes and Impacts of Misalignment
How do we end up with poor alignment in our smiles? This could be due to issues in childhood, such as thumb sucking or premature loss of baby teeth, which could alter how permanent teeth erupt and lead to misalignment. As we grow older, this could be linked to injury, tooth loss, or issues with the growth and development of your jaw. The arrival of wisdom teeth could also be a source of poor misalignment. When we have crooked, crowded, and overlapping teeth, this means difficulty brushing and flossing and a greater risk of cavities, infections, and gum disease. The pressure on your jaw joints from uneven teeth could leave you vulnerable to TMJ disorder and bruxism (teeth grinding) too. But with Invisalign ®, we can offer clear smile correction, with results possible in as little as one year.
Designing and Crafting Custom Aligners
The key to the success of the procedure is the clear aligner system. No metal brackets or wires, but instead a series of appliances that fit over the teeth and help shift them into proper positions. We craft them based on detailed digital images we take of your smile from multiple angles. We then combine them into a digital impression, one that enables experts in a lab setting to design and craft your finished aligners. Made from a clear and BPA-free plastic material, these can start you on your journey to an even and beautiful smile!
Invisalign® Smile Correction
Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks, 20 to 23 hours a day on average. The aligners help gradually and gently shift the teeth, and are clear in appearance. They fit comfortably to prevent gum and cheek irritation, and can easily be cleaned and stored, traveling with you during the holidays too. You wear the sets on schedule and see us occasionally to make sure your smile is being corrected as it should. For most, an even smile is possible in a year, while others may need up to 18 months, still shorter than the time required by braces. They’re also removable! Which means eating is much simpler, as is brushing and flossing too.
