More than just a source of embarrassment, crooked or overlapping teeth can also be a threat to your oral health. Crooked teeth increase your risk of tooth decay, gum disease and more serious issues such as unstable bites and excessively worn teeth.
What Are Invisible Braces?
Dr. Natasha Radosavljevic — Dr. Rados — is a Clearwater, FL Invisalign® provider offering treatment with clear aligners for a wide range of dental health and cosmetic concerns. Invisalign can help you discreetly achieve a new smile for both adults and teens. The system will gently reposition your teeth in a little over a year, with little impact on your daily activities. In fact, most people probably won’t even realize you’re wearing them.
Patients can still enjoy their favorite foods and maintain good oral hygiene with Invisalign. Unlike traditional metal braces that cannot be easily removed and must be carefully brushed and flossed around and require giving up certain foods, Invisalign aligners can be taken out for oral hygiene and to eat and are easy to remove when it’s time to swap them out based on your treatment plan.
Am I Too Old For Invisalign?
Even though the teeth are set in place by adulthood, it is not too late to consider orthodontic treatment to straighten teeth. Many adults have made use of traditional braces or used the Invisalign system with positive results. Invisalign can be used to treat both mild to moderate orthodontic issues or to address minor tooth movement that sometimes occurs later in life after previous orthodontic treatment. Invisalign also offers patients options to treat underbite, overbite, and tooth spacing concerns.
Why Should I Straighten My Teeth?
Crooked or overlapping teeth are much more than a cosmetic issue. Crooked teeth are more susceptible to damage and decay due to difficulty brushing and flossing properly and this can lead to more serious problems in the future. Serious overbite and underbites can also negatively impact your dental health by altering the stability of your bite.
