Nature rarely gives us perfect teeth. Most people have a perfect smile because they wore braces as a child, but if you were not lucky enough to have orthodontic treatment in childhood, you may not be happy with your smile. Luckily, there is a solution!
Invisalign can improve your smile, straighten crooked teeth, and improve your oral health. Unlike old-fashioned train-track braces, Invisalign in Reno is a near invisible orthodontic solution for misaligned teeth, which makes it perfect for adults who don’t want the indignity of wearing an intrusive metal brace.
The Invisalign System
Invisalign is an advanced aligner system. Each Invisalign is custom made to fit your teeth, so it is guaranteed to work. The Invisalign system moves your teeth gently and slowly into the optimum position. It works on patients with an underbite, an overbite, or crossbite. It is also effective in closing gaps between teeth, rotating teeth, and rearranging overcrowded teeth.
What can Invisalign treat?
Invisalign can treat a wide variety of different problems, from simply straightening teeth to correcting an overbite, underbite, or crossbite. The following are all of the cases that can be treated by Invisalign:
Abnormal continued growth of the jawbone and missing teeth can cause gapped teeth. In turn, this can lead to gum problems, periodontal pockets, and an increased risk of periodontal disease.
Poor oral habits, genetics, and the overdevelopment of the bone that supports the teeth can cause overbite. Ultimately, overbite can lead to gum problems, wear on the lower teeth, and can cause painful jaw and joint problems.
Underbite is usually caused by undergrowth of the upper jaw, overgrowth of the lower jaw, or missing upper teeth. This can lead to tooth wear and cause painful jaw and joint problems.
Open bite is when some of your teeth are not able to contact opposing teeth for a proper bite. This can cause painful chewing, a speech impairment, and temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ).
Overly Crowded Teeth
Teeth crowding occurs when there is not enough room in your jaw to fit all of your teeth. If untreated, this crowding can lead to plaque accumulation, tooth decay, and a greater chance of gum disease.
Crossbite develops when both of your jaws are not aligned properly. It causes upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth and can cause wear of the teeth, gum disease, and bone loss.
Made to Measure
An Invisalign clear aligner is made to fit snugly over your teeth. It is clear, so unless anyone looks closely, they won’t even see it. An Invisalign aligner is easily removed so you can brush and floss your teeth as normal. It is comfortable to wear and once you have an Invisalign in place, you can forget about it.
Life can carry on as normal with an Invisalign aligner in place. You can work, socialize, exercise, and do everything you would normally do. Nobody is going to spot your Invisalign aligner, but they will definitely notice your smile improve.
The Benefits of Straight Teeth
Having straight teeth is more than a cosmetic issue. Crooked teeth, overbites, underbites, and other teeth problems can cause all kinds of health issues. Crooked teeth are hard to clean, so plaque builds up, leading to tooth decay and gingivitis. Poor oral hygiene can also lead to more serious health issues such as heart disease and diabetes.
If you are not happy with your smile, an Invisalign Reno aligner can improve your smile in as little as 3-6 months. As long as you wear your aligner for at least 22 hours a day, you will see a difference almost immediately. Invisalign is a proven and highly effective way to achieve a perfect smile, so speak to your dentist to find out more!
