Having misaligned teeth can be a very traumatic experience. Depending on the misalignment’s severity, it can dramatically impact your quality of life. For example, it’s very common for people with misaligned teeth to refrain from showing their teeth while smiling. Denying yourself of this natural human expression can significantly impact a person’s self-esteem and mental health.
This is why millions of people search the internet daily for terms such as “orthodontist near me” to find ways to correct their misaligned smiles. At Msmiline Cosmetic Dentistry, our dentists are skilled in correcting misalignments using Invisalign, one of the most trusted names in the clear aligner industry.
Malocclusion is the clinical term for misaligned or crooked teeth. Crooked teeth are more than just a matter of aesthetics. They can also lead to other issues, such as:
Invisalign is one of the most recognized names in clear aligners, also called clear braces. Unlike traditional metal braces, clear aligners are not permanently attached to your teeth 24/7 while you wear them. Instead, they are removable anytime, and the bio-compatible plastic is clear, allowing you to wear them discretely. The same cannot be said for traditional metal braces with their metal brackets and wires.
The Invisalign system can correct most forms of teeth misalignment. In many ways, Invisalign uses the same principles as traditional braces, as they both gradually shift your teeth using pressure until they achieve the desired position.
There are a lot of amazing benefits to using Invisalign compared to traditional braces, such as:
During your first visit, your dentist may take a 3D virtual model of your dental arch using specialized technology. You’ll be able to preview how your teeth will look step by step before you get started, using special predictive software.
Your scans are sent to a lab where they design a customized set of clear aligners based on the virtual model.
You’ll begin wearing your aligners for roughly 20-22 hours daily to achieve the best results, taking them off only to eat and drink or to brush and floss. After about two weeks, you’ll switch to your new set of aligners. After completing each set, your teeth should achieve the alignment you desire.
Getting the incredible smile you rightly deserve has never been easier.
