Straightening the alignment of teeth is extremely essential if you want to have a charming smile. Misalignment of teeth is a problem often encountered by young children. The teeth just simply grow in crooked—or sometimes get knocked around during an accident. Not only do crooked teeth mar your smile and possibly have a negative impact on self-confidence, they also can lead to more serious dental problems if not treated correctly.
Children often inherit genetics that lead to misaligned teeth from their parents. However, there are other reasons that can cause misalignment, such as a cleft lip, using a bottle for too long, or sucking your thumb during childhood.
The most effective solution used for correcting teeth alignment are metal braces. No child or teenager wants to be walking around with a “metal mouth,” though. Many adults don’t, either. No matter your age, Invisalign is a clear straightening treatment—just as effective, just not as visible. At Gentle Dental Care, we offer the best Invisalign treatments to you making sure that you get the best possible results.
The procedure is simple. Clear plastic trays are made to custom fit your teeth. These trays, while not visible like metal brackets, fulfill the same purpose in a similar way, as they gently apply pressure to move the teeth into the proper position. The fitting is very quick, and there’s no need for painful retightening every few weeks. You just wear the trays, and no one can tell that you are straightening your teeth at the same time!
The Invisalign treatment that has produced remarkable results where ever it is implemented, and our office is no exception. You will be able to see a clear difference in the alignment of your teeth in only a few months time. The Invisalign trays usually have to be worn for a period of about a year and a half to get full results, although that time frame can change based on the specifics of the problem.
No matter your problem, your age, or your stage in life, if you are looking to straighten or realign your teeth but don’t want to go through the pain and social misery of having braces, talk to your dentist about Invisalign.
