Ignoring Crooked Teeth is Not an Option
The decision between crooked teeth and metal braces would be simpler if crooked teeth were only a cosmetic issue. Unfortunately, the rabbit hole goes deeper than vanity. Your teeth’s alignment is designed for optimal function and pressure displacement. To evenly disperse the up to 200 pounds of pressure that your bite can exert, your teeth must fit together in a certain pattern. Crooked teeth throw this balance out of whack and can threaten your mouth’s proper function. Also, misaligned teeth can create odd angles and spaces for harmful bacteria to accumulate, increasing your risk of developing a dental disease.
What is Invisalign?
The beauty behind Invisalign clear braces lies in its innovative approach to the process of straightening teeth. While traditional braces utilize a system of brackets connected by a wire to force your teeth into their proper position, Invisalign uses a series of clear acrylic aligners that gently guide your teeth into place. Each aligner is worn for a couple of weeks, and each aligner’s successor is designed to move your teeth a little more towards their goals. Because the aligners are removable, you don’t have to alter your diet or oral hygiene routine to accommodate your treatment. Simply remove your aligner while you eat or brush your teeth, and replace it when you’ve finished.
