How Crooked Teeth Hurt Your Health & How Invisalign Can Help

Problems Caused By Crooked Teeth

You already know that your teeth are supposed to fit snugly together when you close your jaw – dentists refer to this as teeth that are “in occlusion”.

But did you know that when teeth don’t fit together properly- what dentists call “malocclusion” – it can negatively impact your current and long term dental health and overall health?

The video above does a great job at explaining the tooth problems caused by crooked teeth, such as:

  • poor aesthetics of smile
  • premature wear of teeth
  • chipped teeth
  • tooth fracture
  • jaw pain
  • ear pain
  • more trapped plaque and bacteria
  • increased chance for gingivitis or gum disease
  • increased chance of more cavities
  • and more

Invisalign Can Help!

Invisalign is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth!Invisalign vs metal braces

No metal, no wires – just clear, comfortable, invisible braces!

Invisalign works just like traditional metal braces in that it slowly moves crooked teeth into a new, corrected position.

Invisalign can treat the most common orthodontic problems that traditional braces can correct, but instead of metal braces and wires, you wear a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten your teeth.

How Long Does Invisalign Take?

You wear each aligner for about two weeks, and then change to the next aligner in your custom made series. Each aligner moves your teeth a little more toward the final corrected position. Treatment length is different for everyone, similar to traditional braces. Most cases average just 12-18 months.

Treatment is comfortable and discreet. No one will know you are wearing braces – even dentists have a hard time seeing who is wearing Invisalign at a glance!

Can I Eat With Invisalign Braces?

The great thing about Invisalign braces is that they are removable! You wear them all day and night, comfortably, but you remove them to eat, drink coffee or tea, brush and floss daily.

Who Can Have Invisalign Treatment?

Invisalign is suitable for teens and adults, and is covered by insurance just like traditional orthodontics.

How Do I Get Invisalign in Brooklin?

A dentist who is trained in Invisalign must examine your teeth and jaw, and advise you if Invisalign is suitable for your dental condition.
