Malocclusion (the state of crooked teeth) differs from patient to patient. For some, it may not be that obvious, while for others, the imbalance can noticeably throw off the appearance of their entire smiles. Regardless of how severe it is, though, malocclusion negatively impacts the health and function of your bite, and can lead to increasingly more serious dental health issues the longer it’s left uncorrected. Fortunately, Invisalign® clear aligners can help many patients correct crooked teeth easier, more comfortably, and more discreetly than traditional orthodontic braces.
They help you stay confident.
If you’re pondering straightening your crooked teeth, but you worry how braces will make your smile look, then one of the biggest advantages of Invisalign® aligners is that they’re virtually invisible. Each aligner is made from clear, biocompatible plastic and designed to fit snugly over your teeth without moving or being noticeable.
They let you eat your favorite foods.
In addition to being virtually invisible, Invisalign® clear aligners are also temporarily removable. You can take your aligners off to eat your favorite foods without worrying about food particles getting stuck behind your braces. This also reduces your risks of developing issues like tooth decay and gum disease, which are caused by oral bacteria that feed on your food and beverages.
They make good hygiene easier.
Aside from helping you avoid food particles lingering on your teeth, removing your aligners also makes it easier to practice consistently good hygiene. By taking your aligners off, you can brush and floss your teeth more effectively, and you won’t need a special cleaner to brush around brackets and wires.
