Would you like to have a brilliant new smile for this years’ holiday photos? If your teeth are crooked or misaligned, Invisalign can quickly and easily make your dental goals a reality. In just a few short months these clear, removable aligners can give you the ideal smile you’ve long dreamed of.
How Invisalign Works
Invisalign straightens your teeth using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. They gradually and gently shift your teeth into place. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference to your daily life. More details from Invisalign
A variety of misalignment issues can be fixed with Invisalign including: crossbites, overbites, open bites and underbites. Invisalign can address over-crowding issues as well. Dr. Robert Harrell and his highly skilled team at Adult Dentistry of Ballantyne have created countless beautiful smiles with Invisalign and they want you to be their next satisfied patient. Keep reading to learn more about just a few of the smile issues Invisalign can correct.
From mild cases of crooked teeth and protruding teeth, to much more difficult dental problems involving serious malocclusion, overbite, or underbite, Invisalign® effectively corrects a wide variety of dental problems. Whether your teeth are widely gapped, overly crowded or somewhere in between, Invisalign has an affordable teeth straightening option for you.
Gaps between teeth can occur with abnormal continued growth of the jawbone. Missing teeth can also cause the surrounding teeth to shift due to the extra space, creating gaps in your teeth. Spacing issues and gaps between teeth can lead to gum problems (due to lack of protection by the teeth), periodontal pockets and increased risk of periodontal disease.
Overbite occurs when the upper teeth bite over the lower teeth. It’s typically caused by genetics, bad oral habits, or overdevelopment of the bone that supports the teeth. This can lead to gum problems or irritation, and/or wear on the lower teeth, and can cause painful jaw and joint problems. Learn more at Invisalign
More than Just a Gorgeous Smile
Helping our clients achieve the highest standard of oral health is our goal at Adult Dentistry of Ballantyne. Straight teeth (that are not wrapped in wire braces) are an important part of that mission because they are easier to clean and maintain. The benefits of a healthy smile go well beyond simple aethestics.
Healthier Teeth And Gums
Swollen, red gums can often be the result of having teeth that are crowded or too widely spaced. Unfortunately, these are also signs of periodontal disease. When teeth are properly aligned, it helps the gums fit more securely around the teeth, allowing for the strongest and healthiest defense against potential periodontal problems. That’s where Invisalign comes in. The comfortable and clear aligners gently and gradually begin to move your teeth into the proper position — without unsightly brackets and wires.
One of the biggest challenges of having braces is removing all the food that gets trapped in the brackets and wires. This can often lead to plaque buildup and eventually tooth decay. With Invisalign, the aligners are removable, so it’s easy to continue brushing and flossing your teeth the way you normally do. Read more at Invisalign
