Your teeth play many important roles in your mouth. One of these roles is the quality of your smile. When you have crooked teeth, not only is the quality of your smile affected, but so is your confidence. Additionally, crooked teeth can also significantly impact your oral health. You may be faced with such issues as uneven tooth wear, tooth damage, and gum recession. Your risk for tooth decay, gum disease, and bruxism increases. Metal braces used to be the only treatment available for treating crooked teeth. At David Crumpton, DDS, we provide an alternative to this traditional treatment with Invisalign.

Traditional Braces

For years, the only way to correct alignment issues was with metal braces. This treatment involves the use of metal brackets and wires to straighten teeth. Brackets are bonded to the front surfaces of each tooth. A wire, which spans an entire arch of teeth, is attached to each bracket with the use of elastic O-rings. The wire is then adjusted periodically to shift your teeth into proper alignment.

While braces are incredibly effective, and still commonly used today, there are a few disadvantages associated with them. One of the biggest disadvantages is that they are very prominent. When you smile, all others see is a mouth filled with metal. For many, this can be incredibly embarrassing. Metal braces make it difficult to eat certain types of foods and make oral hygiene more difficult. Also, braces can be uncomfortable. The brackets can rub your intraoral tissues, causing sores. Moreover, if a bracket comes loose or breaks, it can poke your soft tissues, causing pain.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a newer alternative to traditional metal braces. Instead of brackets and wires, your teeth are moved with the use of clear plastic aligners. These aligners, which are made from impressions of your mouth, sit over your teeth in a similar fashion to a sports mouthguard or retainer. Because they are made from clear plastic, they become practically invisible once they have been placed in your mouth. No one will notice them when you smile.

Additionally, aligners are removable. However, they should only be removed to eat and to brush your teeth. To achieve the best results, they need to be worn for 20 to 22 hours every day.

How Does Invisalign Work?

With Invisalign, you go through a series of aligners. Each set, which is worn for two weeks at a time, is slightly different, which aids in gradually shifting your teeth to where they need to go. Depending upon your needs, you may go through anywhere from 18 to 30 sets of aligners throughout the course of your treatment. The aligners are made from impressions of your mouth. With specialized software, we can see every step of your treatment, which allows us to see every step of your treatment. You can see your beautiful new smile before treatment even begins.

Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign provides several benefits, including
•  Discreet. Your aligners are made from clear plastic. They are practically invisible in your mouth. No one will notice them when you smile.
•  Removable. You can take your aligners out to eat and to brush your teeth. You can eat all of your favorite foods during your treatment. Your teeth are also easier to maintain.
•  Comfortable. The plastic will not rub your intraoral tissues. You also do not need to worry about wires breaking.
•  Fewer visits to the office. You are supplied with several sets of aligners at one time. You also do not need regular appointments to adjust wires.
•  Shorter treatments. Treatment with Invisalign is generally shorter than with traditional braces.
