Misaligned teeth can be more than a source of embarrassment about your smile. They can also negatively impact your oral health by changing the stability and function of your bite, which can lead to major dental issues down the road. Many people with these issues are being successfully treated by invisible braces and the leading designer of these helpful orthodontic appliances is Invisalign®.
What Are Invisalign Invisible Braces?
Bella Smiles is a Long Island, NY dental provider offering mild to moderate orthodontic treatment using Invisalign clear plastic aligners to correct cosmetic dental issues. Invisalign offers a discreet means to achieve a new smile for both adults and teens. This system of clear plastic appliances will gently and discreetly reposition your teeth in a little over a year, with little impact on your daily activities.
Patients can still enjoy their favorite foods while maintaining good oral hygiene unlike with traditional metal braces. Invisalign aligners are designed to be comfortably worn for about 22 hours a day, without irritating the gums or sensitive areas of the mouth. When the time comes to eat, brush your teeth or switch to the next aligner in your series, they are easy to remove.
Am I Too Old For Invisalign?
Even though the teeth have all grown in and are established in their places by adulthood, that does not mean you are too old or it’s too late to consider orthodontic treatment to straighten teeth. Many adults have sought treatment with traditional braces or used Invisalign with positive results. Invisalign can be used to treat mild to moderate orthodontic issues, and it can also be used to address minor tooth movement after previous orthodontic treatment. Invisalign also offers patients options to treat underbite, overbite, and tooth spacing concerns.
Why Should I Straighten My Teeth?
Straightening crooked or overlapping teeth is more important than just correcting a cosmetic issue. Crooked teeth are more susceptible to tooth decay or being damaged which may cause more problems in the future. Serious overbite and underbite issues can change the stability of your bite, leading to uneven wear on your teeth. Additionally, teeth that are aligned properly are easier to brush and floss, reducing your chances of decay and plaque buildup.
