Are Crooked Teeth Really More Prone To Problems?

You can feel self-conscious about the way your crooked teeth affect your smile, but should you also worry about this problem’s effect on your oral health? When you have issues with poor dental alignment, you can have a higher risk for tooth decay. The trouble lies with the way your teeth meet – if overlaps make it harder to reach certain areas, those areas can allow for a buildup of oral bacteria. As a result, you can be more prone to cavities. The alignment of your teeth can also affect your bite alignment. Over time, this problem can lead to issues with your jaw function. Fortunately, your Rochester, MN dentist’s office can offer Invisalign treatment, which provides you with a discreet appliance to fix these concerns.

Finding Out How Invisalign Can Help You

Traditional metal braces and Invisalign aligners can both help you straighten teeth that are poorly aligned. With Invisalign, you can see these results with an appliance that is difficult to see, making them ideal for teen patients in need of orthodontic work, and people in professional environments. Because you switch from one aligner to the next as your alignment improves, there are no manual adjustments that need to be performed.

Using Modern Technology To See Results Sooner

Because Invisalign avoids the awkwardness of a conspicuous appliance, you can feel more comfortable during your treatment period. With that said, the idea of a shorter treatment can be appealing, simply because you are eager to show off your improved smile! If you want to see results in less time, Propel Orthodontic technology can help. During the adjustment process, your periodontal and bone tissues need to shift properly, so that your results last. Propel can ensure that this process moves more quickly, which results in a shorter treatment. Patients who rely on this can have their work done within one year!
