Repair Misaligned Teeth Through Invisalign®
Some may not realize it, but people are sometimes so keen on some people’s teeth that even misalignment won’t go unnoticed. However, misalignment of teeth transcends concerns on outer beauty. When you have malocclusions, you are affected in more ways than you’d expect. Thankfully, you can get Invisalign in Tampa, Florida, to fix your smile.
What You Should Know About Invisalign Treatment
What is Invisalign?
When we talk about teeth straightening, mental images of metal wires and brackets automatically flood our minds. That is because metal braces have been the most common orthodontic treatment available for years to correct crooked teeth.
Thankfully, with the advancement of dental technology, patients have more options to choose from to get the same treatment.
Invisalign is the brand’s name for clear aligners placed over the teeth to gradually reposition them to align. They are virtually invisible, so while they can still be noticed, they are far less prominent than metal braces. Additionally, crediting to its popularity is the fact that these aligners are removable.
That is, you can remove them when eating, brushing, and flossing – things that are relatively difficult to do with traditional braces since it can be challenging to navigate through the metal wires with the fear of potentially breaking or loosening them lurking in your head.
What Does Invisalign Fix?
Invisalign can fix complex dental issues the same way metal braces do. These issues include overbite, underbite, crossbite, crooked teeth, overcrowding, spacing, open bite, and teeth gaps. Treatment with aligners generally takes 12-18 months, but this depends on the patient’s diligence and willingness to take necessary steps to avoid slowing down the process.
To expedite teeth realignment, patients are advised to wear the aligners for 20-22 hours a day and only remove them when needed or when they don’t want treatment to impede a specific activity.
