Crooked or overlapping teeth can be more than a source of embarrassment about the appearance of your smile. They can also negatively impact your oral health by changing the stability and function of your bite, which could lead to problems down the road.
What Are Invisible Braces?
Dr. Mark S. Jeffries is a Herndon, VA Invisalign® provider offering minor to moderate orthodontic treatment with clear aligners for a wide range of dental health and cosmetic concerns. Invisalign offers a discreet way to straighten teeth, achieving a healthier, more attractive smile for both adults and teens. The system will gently and discreetly reposition your teeth in a little over a year, with little impact on your day-to-day activities.
Patients can still enjoy their favorite foods and maintain good oral hygiene with the Invisalign system. The aligners are designed to be worn for about 22 hours a day and won’t irritate the gums or sensitive areas of the mouth. The aligners are easy to remove when it’s time to clean your teeth or when you need to swap them out for another set based on your treatment plan.
Am I Too Old For Invisalign?
Even though our teeth are in place by adulthood, that does not mean you are too old or it’s too late to consider orthodontic treatment to straighten teeth. Many adults get traditional metal braces or use Invisalign with positive results. Invisalign can be used to treat mild to moderate orthodontic issues, and it can also be used to address minor tooth movement after previous orthodontic treatment. Invisalign also offers patients options to discreetly treat underbite, overbite, and tooth spacing concerns.
Why Should I Straighten My Teeth?
Straightening crooked or overlapping teeth is more than a cosmetic concern. Crooked teeth are more at risk of damage and decay which may lead to more serious issues in the future. Serious overbite and underbite issues can also affect dental health by changing the stability of your bite. Plus, teeth that are aligned properly are easier to brush and floss, reducing your chances of plaque buildup and subsequent tooth decay..
