Crooked or overlapping teeth can be more than a source of embarrassment about your smile. They can also affect your oral health by changing the stability and function of your bite, which could lead to problems down the road.
Dr. Natasha Radosavljevic of Clearwater Complete Dentistry is an Invisalign® provider, offering treatment with clear aligners for a wide range of dental health and cosmetic concerns. Invisalign offers a discreet way to achieve a new smile for adults. Over the course of a year the system gently and discreetly repositions your teeth with little impact on your daily activities.
With Invisalign patients can still enjoy their favorite foods and oral hygiene is the same as always since the aligners are removable. They are designed to be worn for about 22 hours a day and won’t irritate the patients’ gums or sensitive areas of the mouth.
AM I TOO OLD FOR INVISALIGN?
Even though our teeth are set in place by the time we are adults, that does not mean you are too old or it’s too late to undergo orthodontic treatment to straighten teeth. Many adults receive treatment with braces or Invisalign and have positive results. Invisalign treats mild to moderate orthodontic issues, and it can also be used to address minor tooth movement after previous orthodontic treatment, stabilizing the results of previous orthodontic care. Invisalign is also an option to treat underbite, overbite, and tooth spacing concerns.
WHY STRAIGHTEN MY TEETH?
Straightening crooked or overlapping teeth is important for more than just cosmetic reasons. Crooked teeth are more apt to be damaged and more susceptible to decay both of which may cause more health problems in the future. Serious overbite and underbite issues can change the stability of your bite which can also affect your oral health. Also, properly aligned teeth are easier to brush and floss, reducing your chances of decay and plaque buildup.
