Straightening Your Teeth To Improve Your Oral Health

If you straighten your teeth, and fix frustrating problems like smile gaps, or awkward overlaps, you can improve your smile. For many people, the cosmetic benefits of orthodontic work drive their decision to look into the matter. What you might not expect is that correcting problems with crooked teeth can have benefits that also impact your oral health. Straighter teeth can be easier to protect, and less likely to have problems with tooth decay. Your Rochester, MN dentist can offer orthodontic improvements through Invisalign treatment. With Invisalign, you can enjoy the results of an orthodontic adjustment, while avoiding the complications that make people hesitate to move forward with metal braces.

Different Problems That Poor Dental Alignment Can Create

Poor dental alignment poses more than just a concern for the quality of your smile. Crooked teeth can cause your bite to be misaligned – this problem can make you more likely to deal with problems like TMJ dysfunction and bruxism. You can also be at a greater risk for oral health problems if you have teeth that overlap, as these spaces can be difficult to clean effectively.

Starting Your Orthodontic Treatment With Invisalign Aligners

Invisalign aligners can help people with mild to moderate dental alignment issues. Once you are approved, digital images will be created of your bite. These images can be used to design your aligners, and they can be used to create a “preview” to show you what your smile will be like at the end of your adjustment! To learn more about the start of your procedure, or to determine if this treatment is right for you, let your dentist know you have questions about Invisalign.

What To Expect During Your Invisalign Treatment

Invisalign treatment offers people the opportunity to avoid the concerns they have about metal braces, while still enjoying orthodontic improvements. Your Invisalign aligners are designed to be unobtrusive when it comes to your appearance. In other words, your appliance is not noticeable, so you can feel better about your appearance in social and business environments. You can also find that your aligners are more convenient when it comes to your daily life. They can be removed easily when you need to eat, or if you are preparing to clean your teeth. This can be a welcome alternative to metal braces, which can feel obtrusive throughout your orthodontic correction.
