Having imperfect looking teeth can really impact the appearance of a patients smile. While traditional braces can correct people’s imperfect looking smiles, the brackets and wires are unsightly and can even be painful. Luckily, Invisalign® can correct peoples smiles comfortably and discreetly. But what exactly makes people candidates for Invisalign In Mission Viejo, CA?
Here is a detailed explanation of what makes people candidates for this invisible smile correcting treatment.
Am I A Candidate For Invisalign In Mission Viejo, CA?
Having crooked teeth, misaligned teeth, or gapped teeth can result in people developing bite issues, teeth grinding, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, all of which can lead to jaw pain. Harmful bacteria can even get trapped in between the spaces of crowded teeth, resulting in tooth decay or even gum disease if it is not properly treated. People who have these types of dental problems are luckily candidates for Invisalign clear aligners.
After Becoming A Candidate For Them, How Does Invisalign Correct My Smile?
Invisalign is a series of custom-made clear aligners. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign is a discreet tooth straightening option. A customized Invisalign procedure involves having digital impressions taken of the patient’s teeth so that their new smile is designed and planned to their exact needs and specifications.
Once they are designed and ready, patients should wear their Invisalign for 20 to 22 hours a day for maximum results. The only time patients are supposed to remove their Invisalign clear aligners is when they are eating or drinking or brushing or flossing their teeth.
As each clear aligner is replaced with the next in the series, the patient’s teeth will gradually move until they have straightened to their final position. Invisalign is a great choice for adults or teens who want to discreetly straighten their teeth without the use of metal braces.
Having straight teeth eliminates the potential of people developing tooth decay or gum disease due to crowded teeth. Having straight teeth can also preserve people’s oral health and it makes it much easier to maintain clean and healthy teeth.
Invisalign can even improve the function of people’s teeth when their bite is misaligned, helping to eliminate the discomfort of jaw pain or teeth grinding.
