Crooked or crowded teeth can be more than a source of embarrassment about your smile. They can also affect your oral health by changing the stability and function of your bite, which could lead to serious dental problems down the road.
What Are Invisible Braces?
Russell Street Dental Associates is a Worcester, MA Invisalign® provider offering treatment with clear aligners for a wide range of dental health and cosmetic concerns. Invisalign offers a comfortable and discreet way to achieve a new smile for both adults and teens. The system of customized plastic aligners will gently and discreetly reposition your teeth in a little over a year, with only minimal impact on your daily activities.
Patients using Invisalign braces can still enjoy their favorite foods and maintain good oral hygiene. The aligners are designed to be worn for about 22 hours a day without irritating the gums or sensitive areas of the mouth. The aligners are easy to remove when necessary to clean teeth or when it’s time to swap them out based on your treatment plan.
Am I Too Old For Invisalign?
Even though our teeth are usually set in place by adulthood, that does not mean you are too old or it’s too late to consider orthodontic intervention to straighten your teeth. Many adults choose treatment with traditional braces or use the Invisalign system with positive results. Invisalign can be used to treat mild to moderate orthodontic issues, and it can also be used to address minor tooth movement after previous orthodontic treatment. Invisalign also offers patients options to treat underbite, overbite, and tooth spacing concerns.
Why Should I Straighten My Teeth?
Straightening crooked or overlapping teeth is more than a cosmetic procedure. Crooked teeth are more prone to damage and decay and may cause more problems in the future as they are more difficult to brush and floss properly. Serious overbite and underbite issues can also affect dental health by changing the stability of your bite. Straightening your teeth with Invisalign can reduce the risk of these issues as well as improving the aesthetic appearance of your teeth.
