A Clearer Understanding Of How Invisalign Straightens Teeth

Are you interested in straightening your smile? Many people would like to enjoy the benefits of an orthodontic correction. However, some patients – particularly older teens and adults – can find themselves put off by the image of themselves sporting conspicuous bracket and wire braces. For many patients, there are real benefits to be gained from treatment with Invisalign. Invisalign makes it possible to correct alignment issues without using a distracting appliance. Instead, you will have a sequence of clear oral trays that will make gradual corrections to the position of teeth. At the end of the procedure, you will be able to show the world a smile that is free of gaps, overlaps, or crooked teeth.

Qualifying For Treatment With Invisalign

Your dentist does have to do an initial evaluation to make sure you are capable of qualifying for Invisalign. The degree of correction you need may be more serious, and could require conventional braces. However, if you do qualify for clear braces, then your dentist can move forward by taking an impression of your teeth, and using that impression to have your Invisalign treatment designed.

Why Alignment Issues Are More Than Just A Cosmetic Concern

Alignment issues often seem like a matter of cosmetic dental concern. They can certainly create issues with your appearance, but these issues are not the only ones that crooked teeth create. Your bite alignment may be off because of misaligned teeth. That problem can lead to troubling TMJ dysfunction. If you have spaces of teeth that are harder to clean because of overlaps, your cavity risk can be higher.
