Here’s Where We’re Located
Invisalign clear braces may be just what you need to restore your beautiful smile.
Straight teeth give you a reason to smile. Invisalign was designed to fix your crooked teeth without the conventional look of metal braces.
Did you know that straighter teeth also affects your health ?
It may come as a surprise that over %74 of American adults have misaligned or crooked teeth.
Untreated crooked teeth can lead to periodontal disease. This can create unnatural stress to your teeth and jaw.
We usually start to see premature wear to teeth that are suffering such conditions. Unfortunately, the effects of crooked teeth can worsen over time. This adversely affects your overall health.
Common Types of Tooth Misalignment
There are several types of tooth misalignment that Invisalign can help to alleviate.
Crowding, Spacing, Deep Bite, Open Bite, CrossBite, Edge to Edge Bite and Excessive Overjet.
The effect of crooked teeth can affect your bite. This creates unnatural stress and pressure leading to premature wear.
When teeth are subjected to excessive pressure they can begin chipping.
With time, the excessive force can potentially cause flattened or worn down teeth. Fractures at the edges of teeth can occur as well.
With a bad bite, your teeth can produce improper forces on the jaw joint that may lead to jaw pain, earaches, and headaches as well.
With premature wear, you will face the possibility of gum recession, poor bone support at the roots, loose teeth, and eventually tooth loss.
When your teeth are fitted correctly, they last longer. This also reduces the likelihood that you will not need costly dentistry in the future.
Because it is difficult to remove plaque and bacteria from the crowded areas of teeth, periodontal disease is a likelihood if the problem is left untreated.
When bacteria is not properly removed it will begin to multiply. This will begin to trigger gum inflammation. When gum inflammation is left untreated, it will progress to chronic infection that leads to soft tissue damage, receding gums, periodontal pockets, bone loss, and eventually tooth loss. Such conditions can lead to painful repairs and maintenance in the future.
If left untreated, this condition can trap bacteria that can damage gum tissue cells and invade blood vessels.
This can cause damage to cells that line your coronary arteries increasing your risk of heart disease, stroke, and other illnesses
Correctly positioned teeth will help prevent future dental problems and make a significant difference toward a healthy mouth.
What is Invisalign ?
Invisalign now utilizes Smart Track aligner. With a new highly elastic material, Invisalign delivers a gentle more
constant force to improve control of tooth movement. A series of clear aligners, custom made just for you, will gradually move and align your teeth.
Achieving predictable tooth movement has always been a primary goal of orthodontics. With the evolution of materials, numerous possibilities have opened up improving orthodontic treatment.
Using Invisalign Smart Track material will significantly improve control of tooth movements such as rotation and extrusion. Invisalign material delivers more constant force, returns more closely to the program shape, and improves aligner fit for better control of tooth movement.
Standard aligner material loses energy over time in the oral environment. This is due to the temperature and moisture. Testing shows that the highly elastic Smart Track material delivers a gentle more constant force over the two-week aligner wear period for improved tracking.
When the Invisalign aligner is stretched to fit over dentition, the highly elastic Smart Track material returns more closely to the programme aligner shape to improve tracking in the clinch check treatment plan.
The Smart Track aligner material becomes the standard material for all new Invisalign treatments. Patients that were treated with Invisalign found that their aligners are more comfortable to wear and easier to insert and remove. This is all while having the same clarity and aesthetics as previous aligner materials.
Invisalign significantly improves control of tooth movement and requires no changes to your current clinical protocols.
