Did you know that achieving straight teeth is possible at any age? Today both adolescents and adults can enjoy the cosmetic and health advantages of straight teeth without using traditional braces. Thanks to the revolutionary clear aligners, achieving proper alignment has never been easier. Drs. Patel and Dornhecker and their talented team at Patel & Dornhecker Dentistry in Cincinnati, Ohio, will explain the ins and outs of using the Invisalign system, including how to remove your clear aligners and more.
It’s common for crooked teeth, underbites, overbites, and other dental issues to negatively impact our self-esteem, making us self-conscious about our appearance. However, straightening your teeth is about more than just aesthetics. Failing to straighten crooked teeth can result in significant dental problems.
One of the significant benefits of having straight teeth is a reduced risk of periodontal disease. Straight teeth are easier to clean, eliminating harmful bacteria from the mouth.
Moreover, properly aligned teeth help in chewing, preventing uneven grinding on the teeth, and leading to better digestion. Additionally, straight teeth help align the jaw, alleviating aches and discomfort. Straight teeth can even open airways, helping individuals suffering from sleep apnea.
Straightening your teeth can prevent severe dental issues and improve your overall well-being. So, if you’re considering straightening your teeth, remember that it’s not just about looking good – it’s about feeling good and having a healthier smile.
Clear Aligner treatment offers an innovative alternative to traditional orthodontic methods, avoiding the need for cemented bands and brackets, wires, and rubber bands for a gentler approach to teeth alignment.
Transparent plastic aligners, similar in appearance to a mouth guard, are utilized to reposition teeth with precision and care. Progression through treatment is achieved by wearing each set of aligners for approximately two weeks before moving on to the next set in the series. Regular six-week check-ups are scheduled to ensure the treatment progresses as expected.
The Invisalign system employs cutting-edge computer software to generate a customized treatment plan and design the aligners. The use of digital impressions of the patient’s mouth enables the software to create a personalized treatment plan that accounts for the unique positioning of each tooth.
Invisalign is an effective treatment option for complex cases of malalignment and malocclusion, as well as for mild to moderate spacing and crowding issues and cosmetic concerns.
Here are a few reasons why many people love the system.
