Straight Teeth: More Than Just a Pretty Smile
Achieving teeth alignment isn’t just about aesthetics; it also serves as a preventive measure against potentially expensive dental and medical issues. While it might be surprising, maintaining properly aligned teeth plays a pivotal role in promoting overall health. You may not currently experience discomfort due to crooked teeth, leading to the belief that they require no intervention. However, it’s essential to recognize that teeth must be positioned correctly to function effectively and endure a lifetime.
Statistics reveal that nearly 9 out of 10 individuals exhibit some degree of dental crowding or misalignment, which can contribute to several concerns, including:
- Risk of chipping or losing front teeth.
- Food becoming trapped between teeth.
- Challenges with flossing and interdental cleaning.
- Elevated susceptibility to cavities between teeth.
- Gum disease, which can heighten the likelihood of various systemic health issues such as heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis, and an increased stroke risk.
If you find yourself experiencing any of the aforementioned conditions, we invite you to schedule an appointment at our office for a comprehensive evaluation of your oral health.
Why Delaying Teeth Straightening Can Lead to More Issues
You might have contemplated straightening your teeth for a while, or your dentist may have recently advised it. Regardless of the scenario, delaying the start of treatment only prolongs your dissatisfaction and heightens the risk of tooth damage or associated health concerns. Importantly, bear in mind that teeth continue to shift.
In a few years, your teeth will have shifted further out of alignment than they are today. The more extensive the realignment required, the lengthier the treatment duration. Addressing misalignment while it’s less severe is not only more convenient but also faster and cost-effective.
Rest assured, affordable treatment options are available. The full cost is not required on the first day of treatment, and our office is eager to discuss the payment plans commonly utilized by most of our patients.
Our primary goal is to assist our patients in attaining overall health and a radiant smile by establishing a solid foundation. This involves the essential step of aligning teeth to ensure they are in proper position and function optimally. It’s important to note that age is no obstacle when it comes to benefiting from teeth straightening.
Customized Treatment Plan
The journey commences with the creation of your personalized treatment plan, which begins with digital scans of your teeth. Leveraging Invisalign’s advanced software, we can accurately forecast the evolution of your teeth throughout the Invisalign treatment. You’ll even have the opportunity to visualize the progression of your teeth’s alignment in the weeks, months, and ultimately at the conclusion of your treatment. Once your digital plan is finalized, we employ Invisalign’s cutting-edge printing technology to craft your custom aligners.
Upon the arrival of your aligners, we may often utilize special fasteners, which are temporarily bonded to your teeth. These fasteners facilitate the seamless attachment of your aligners. Rest assured, they are predominantly inconspicuous and can be easily removed at the conclusion of your treatment.
You will be provided with each set of clear aligners to wear for approximately two weeks. Gradually, your teeth will make incremental adjustments as you progress through the aligner series, ultimately reaching their intended, corrected positions. Periodic visits to our office, usually scheduled every 1-2 months, are integral to ensure that your treatment progresses as intended.
