Are you interested in fixing problems with gaps between your teeth, overlaps, or other alignment concerns? For many people, excitement over a straightened smile is kept in check by anxieties about orthodontic work itself, particularly orthodontic work with metal braces. While you can be eager to enjoy the benefits of better dental alignment, you can be less than thrilled to have a fixed appliance on your teeth that you are not able to hide, or remove on your own. Fortunately, Invisalign aligners have given people the ability to fix problems with malocclusion without metal braces! Your Rochester, MN dentist’s office can talk to you about using Invisalign to make the corrections to your smile that can improve your appearance, and even your oral health!
Planning Your Invisalign Adjustment
The steps needed before your Invisalign adjustment can begin can be surprisingly patient-friendly. Past orthodontic work has required people to create physical molds of their bite – to do this, they would have to sink their teeth into a plaster material. As you can imagine, this was not a pleasant experience! Fortunately, we now have the means to create digital measurements of your teeth. At our office, we use an iTero digital scanner to take 3d impressions. Once those records are acquired, your custom aligners can be designed.
Wearing Invisalign Aligners During Your Day-To-Day Life
The use of Invisalign aligners over metal braces is meant to make your daily experience with orthodontic work easier. How is this achieved? For starters, adults and image-sensitive teenagers undergoing an orthodontic adjustment now have appliances that are difficult to see. You no longer have to worry that braces are causing problems for your appearance, or making you look less professional. While you up with your treatment schedule by leaving your aligners in as long as possible, you can be glad to know that they are easy for you to remove on your own when you need to eat, or when you are brushing and flossing your teeth.
How Will You Benefit From Having A Straightened Smile?
Is a straightened smile purely a cosmetic benefit? While this certainly can be an improvement to the way you look, there are other reasons people have their teeth straightened. Your bite function may be flawed because of the way your teeth are currently positioned. Fixing their positions with Invisalign aligners can protect certain teeth from overuse, and reduce your risk for developing jaw problem associated with a bad bite form. You can also have an easier time avoiding tooth decay when overlapping teeth are straightened.
