Using Invisalign As An Adult To Fix Smile Flaws

Adults who have never had orthodontic work performed on their teeth, or those who have noticed their teeth shift since earlier treatment, can be reluctant to wear metal braces. The traditional appliances used to address malocclusion are effective at changing the positions of your teeth, but they can be hard to hide from others. They can also feel intrusive, as they will remain in place whenever you need to eat or clean your teeth. At our Rochester, MN dentist’s office, we can talk with you about the benefits of using Invisalign aligners to fix your problems with your smile. When you use Invisalign appliances, you can discreetly make corrections to gaps and overlaps between teeth. You will also be able to enjoy treatment with aligners that can be removed, which means that they will not be present when you eat or clean your teeth.

Uneven Teeth Can Create Problems For The Way You Look

If your teeth are not straight, you can feel self-conscious about an uneven smile, or one that is affected by one or more conspicuous flaws. Adults who have had orthodontic work in the past can be especially frustrated to see issues with poor alignment reoccur as their teeth start to shift back to their original positions. While some issues with misalignment can be hidden through cosmetic dental work, orthodontic treatment is often necessary in order to make lasting changes.

Beginning Treatment With Invisalign Aligners

Our iTero digital scanner is effective at mapping and measuring a person’s oral structures so that we can create a custom Invisalign treatment experience for them. After you go through your measurements, we can actually use the information gathered to show you a preview of your smile after treatment! Adjusting to life with your aligners is made easier by how difficult they are to see, and by your ability to take them out at times when they might feel intrusive. While you should keep them in place for as much time as possible, the ability to remove them can make eating and oral hygiene easier. For those who hope to see their improvements as soon as possible, we can talk to you abut the benefits of using Propel Orthodontic technology to shorten treatment time.

Has Malocclusion Affected Your Oral Health?

Those who have issues with malocclusion can see more than just cosmetic benefits from treatment. Wearing your appliances and fixing overlaps can help you clean your smile more easily, as overlapping teeth are sometimes difficult to clean effectively. You are also able to make potential improvements to your bite by making your smile straight.
