Is It Possible to Straighten Teeth With Invisalign Approach?

Many people think that teeth straightening is a purely cosmetic procedure, but you put your oral health at risk when you let crooked teeth go unchecked. Bacteria get trapped between your teeth, which you can’t reach with a toothbrush. That leads to issues ranging from cavities to gum disease.
Your nearby dentist at Stamford dental offers an easy, painless treatment for crooked teeth with Invisalign clear aligners, one of the most popular solutions for teeth straightening. Call us today to get to know more information about Invisalign.

Invisalign teeth straightening is an innovative approach to orthodontic treatment that gently corrects the position of your teeth by using custom-made clear aligners. For adults and older teens who are wondering how to straighten teeth without braces, Invisalign is an option that offers many benefits and specifically corrects such issues as:

The clear aligner dental appliances are virtually invisible, so your experience of the teeth correction process is more comfortable and inconspicuous than traditional braces. If you’re interested in finding out more about getting Invisalign close to home, your family dentists at the dental center offer local comprehensive dental care in adult dentistry and teen dentistry. You may be a good candidate for Invisalign teeth straightening.

I am so happy with my daughters painless Healthy Start Treatment. I wanted to help striaghten her teeth and this treatment was perfect. Not only are her teeth getting straighter by her first appliance the Habit Corrector helped her to stop sucking her thumb and sleep better by making her breath better. I am so happy I picked the best kids dentist in Stamford with an amazing team. Thank you Stamford Dental Arts and Sharon for being so gentle with my daughter.

Why Correct Misaligned or Overlapping Teeth?

Crooked or uneven teeth may make you feel self-conscious to the point of avoiding situations where you have to smile or get your picture taken. You may even be reluctant to socialize or apply for high-profile jobs because of your teeth. While it’s true that straightening your teeth greatly improves your confidence, your dentist may tell you about reasons — related to your health — that make correcting misaligned or overlapping teeth a priority.

Straightening your teeth reverses the aging process, making you look years younger. But it’s just as important — or even more so — to keep your teeth and gums healthy. When your teeth are crowded or overlapping, you may have difficulties keeping them properly clean. This can result in an accumulation of food particles and plaque, which eventually lead to more serious dental problems and complications, such as:

  • Crooked teeth encourage trapped bacteria that can lead to tooth decay and even periodontal disease.
  • Teeth that are misaligned can cause sleep apnea and teeth grinding, as the two are often related. Your top-rated Stamford dentist treats both conditions.
  • Overlapping teeth make it harder to clean them thoroughly, which affects both your teeth and your gums. This situation can lead to gum and tooth infections.
  • An underbite can cause your teeth to hit the roof of your mouth, causing cuts and sores.

Whenever you have bacteria building up between teeth that you can’t see, it can trigger chronic bad breath.
One of the big advantages of teeth straightening with Invisalign is that the clear aligners are removable. You must keep your clear aligner in your mouth for as close to 24 hours as possible, but you can take them out to eat, brush and floss your teeth. Never take them out for long periods. In short, keeping clear aligners in your mouth leads to healthier teeth, decreasing the risk of complications from crooked teeth.

Straightening Teeth with Invisalign

Treatment with Invisalign is done by combining your Stamford dentist’s expertise with advanced technology. Your dentist performs a 3D scan to give you a glimpse of how your smile will look as your teeth gradually straighten. Each step in the Invisalign process becomes part of your digital roadmap.

The custom clear aligners are now 3D printed as a series of custom trays. You get a few at a time, each of which you wear for one to three weeks. Each new set shifts and straightens your teeth a little bit more. While you may feel some pressure on your teeth when you insert a new aligner, you’re likely to experience a lot less discomfort than you would with traditional braces.

Fewer Dentist Visits; Faster Changes

When you’re ready for new aligners, about every six to eight weeks, you have to visit your dentist. With years of experience successfully making and fitting Invisalign clear aligners for patients, Stamford dental specialists speed up your treatment time. They use Propel acceleration, which uses high-frequency vibrations, to shorten the length of time you have to wear your clear aligners. What used to take as long as 18 months now can be completed in three to six months.

Don’t postpone finding out the best way to straighten teeth without braces. Your dentists have years of experience helping nearby patients to restore their teeth to optimum health. Contact us today to set up an initial complimentary consultation and find out whether Invisalign is the best teeth straightening option for you.
