Using Invisalign To Close Smile Gaps

The gaps created by smile alignment problems can leave tooth with more room to move, and potentially loosen. They can also make you uncomfortable, as they can have a negative effect on your appearance. Fortunately, you can discreetly close these gaps, and fix other issues related to crooked teeth, by seeing your Rochester, MN dentist’s office about starting Invisalign treatment. With Invisalign, you can rely on an appliance that escapes notice, as it is designed to be effectively invisible when worn. Over time, your aligners will bring your teeth into proper positions. In addition to improving the way you look when you smile, this can have positive effects for your oral health!

Why Are Patients Excited To Have Their Orthodontic Work Done With Invisalign Aligners?

Invisalign aligners provide patients with a modern alternative to traditional metal braces. Your aligners can be worn discreetly thanks to their clear plastic material. This makes them particularly popular for teens in need of orthodontic work, and those worried about keeping up a professional appearance at their work. You can also find that Invisalign is more accommodating to your daily life, as you can take them out whenever you need to clean your teeth, or eat.

Can I Be Approved To Use Invisalign?

Your dentist can review your smile’s current state to see if you can be approved for Invisalign. Many patients will receive that approval, though metal braces may be necessary for individuals who need more involved work. In addition to helping people who have never undergone orthodontic work, Invisalign aligners can be used to help people who have noticed their teeth begin to shift after past treatment. Once you receive approval, you can begin the process to have custom aligners made – your dentist will use iTero digital scanners to create digital impressions, a process that you can find more comfortable than biting into a plaster mold.
