When a person has teeth that are too close together, the “crowding” effect can hurt the way they look. This problem can cause unsightly overlaps that make you unhappy with your smile, but you should know that this can be more than just a cosmetic matter. Overlaps can make it harder to fully clean the surfaces of your teeth, so bacteria can have an easier time gathering, and remaining in place. Your Rochester, MN dentist’s office can help you properly space our your teeth with Invisalign aligners. These modern orthodontic appliances offer an appearance-friendly means of straightening a person’s smile!
Teeth That Are Crowded Can Create Cosmetic And Oral Health Problems
If your teeth are too close together, and overlap, it can be hard for you to effectively clean them. Over time, having a harder time clearing away oral bacteria that build up in these spaces can mean experiencing more troubles with cavities, and more issues with gum disease. If your crowded teeth affect the way you bite and chew, the problem can also lead to issues with your dental function that can become painful.
Discussing Invisalign As A Solution To Your Orthodontic Worries
Invisalign is a modern alternative to braces that many patients have happily embraced. With Invisalign aligners, people in professional settings no longer have to worry that metal braces will create a negative first impression. Invisalign aligners can be an ideal orthodontic treatment option for teens as well, as they can correct alignment problems while allowing your teen to feel more confident in how they look.
Our practice is committed to making orthodontic work better for patients, starting with the first visit. Instead of asking patients to create manual impressions of their bite, we use an iTero digital scanner to create the 3d models needed to create custom aligners. This can be more comfortable for patients, and it allows us to show you a “preview” of your smile when your treatment is finished!
Enjoying Life After Your Smile Is Straightened
You can be understandably excited to show off a straightened smile, as you can feel more attractive, and more confident overall. In addition to feeling better about your appearance, you can be happy knowing that you will have an easier time clearing away plaque and food debris that could once hide behind awkward overlaps. If you are hoping to see results as soon as possible, ask your dentist about Propel Orthodontic technology!
