More than just a source of embarrassment, crooked or overlapping teeth can also be a danger to your oral health. Crooked teeth increase your risk of tooth decay and gum disease and can lead to more serious issues such as unstable bites and excessive wear and tear on teeth.
What Are Invisible Braces?
AH Smiles dental practice is an Arlington Heights, IL Invisalign® provider offering treatment with clear aligners for a wide range of dental health and cosmetic concerns. Invisalign can discreetly help adults and teens both achieve a healthier, more attractive smile. The Invisalign system will gently reposition your teeth in a little over a year, with only minimal impact on your daily activities. In fact, most people probably won’t even realize you’re wearing braces.
Patients wearing Invisalign aligners can remove the system easily, allowing them to enjoy their favorite foods and easily maintain good oral hygiene. The invisible aligners are designed for comfort as patients are instructed to wear them for about 22 hours daily. As your teeth begin to move to their new locations, you will be provided new sets of aligners to continue your progress.
Am I Too Old For Invisalign?
Even though our teeth are set in place by the time we reach adulthood, that doesn’t mean you are too old to consider orthodontic treatment to straighten your teeth. Many adults achieve positive results with traditional braces or the Invisalign system. Your AH Smiles dentist can use Invisalign to treat mild to moderate orthodontic issues, and it can also be used to correct minor tooth movement after previous orthodontic treatment. Invisalign also offers patients options to treat underbite, overbite, and tooth spacing concerns.
Why Should I Straighten My Teeth?
Crooked or overlapping teeth are much more serious than a mere cosmetic problem. Crooked teeth are more likely to be damaged and suffer decay due to difficulty brushing and flossing properly and this can lead to more serious problems in the future. Serious overbite and underbites can also alter the stability of your bite, negatively impacting your dental health and making you prone to excessive wear on your teeth and headaches.
