Choosing Invisalign Over Traditional Metal Braces

Are you resigned to treating malocclusion with metal braces, or can you benefit from another treatment approach? People sometimes assume that traditional orthodontic appliances are the only type that can help them. If you look into your treatment options, you may find that you are a good candidate for treatment with Invisalign instead! With Invisalign aligners, your adjustment is less noticeable, which can make you more comfortable with the way you look. These appliances are also popular with patients because they are easy to remove. That makes them more convenient, as they will not be in your way when you want to clean your teeth or eat. Our Rochester, MN dentist’s office can meet with you or your teenager to discuss Invisalign treatment, and give you information on what to expect from an adjustment!

Should You Look Into Treatment With Invisalign Aligners?

Do you feel self-conscious because your smile is affected by crooked teeth, or by visible gaps between teeth that are too far apart? Are you concerned that malocclusion is negatively affecting your bite, or interfering with your oral health? Issues like these can be addressed with orthodontic treatment, and for many people, they can be dealt with through Invisalign treatment. The series of aligners used to gradually straighten your teeth can permanently move them into better positions. We can even help you see results in less time by recommending Propel Orthodontics, which can safely encourage faster movement.

Starting Your Treatment With Invisalign

Before you begin your treatment, your dentist will need to take measurements of your teeth and bite, as these are used to both plan your corrective movement and design personalized aligners. Because we use the iTero digital scanner to take these measurements, we can take down important details with minimal discomfort. We can even use what we gather to show you a “preview” of your smile once your adjustment is done! As you begin treatment, you can find that your aligners are difficult for others to see. You can also be glad to see how easy it is to quickly and discreetly remove aligners so that you can eat or clean your smile.

Orthodontic Treatment Helps With More Than Just Cosmetic Issues

Orthodontic treatment is recommended for more than just the cosmetic concerns created by misalignment. If your teeth are crooked, you can have a more difficult time sustaining a comfortable bite. As a result, you are more likely to struggle with issues like TMJ disorder, and you can overuse certain teeth, making them more vulnerable to problems. Overlapping teeth may be more difficult to keep clean because certain areas are difficult to reach with a toothbrush, making you more likely to have dental troubles as a result.
