Invisalign® Provides A Clear Road To Even Smiles

charles city invisalign

When you need orthodontic treatment to straighten your uneven smile, you don’t have only braces to rely on. Instead, our team could offer clear orthodontics with the cosmetic Invisalign® system. In today’s blog, your Charles City, IA, dentist talks about how we correct uneven smiles with the Invisalign® system.

The Causes and Risks of Misalignment

Our bite could develop misalignment due to childhood thumb sucking, tongue thrusting, and the premature loss of a baby tooth, which upsets how permanent teeth erupt. Issues with growth and development of the smile could be a factor, as could the arrival of wisdom teeth or tooth loss in our teen and adult years. When this develops, your smile is vulnerable to tooth decay and gum disease, TMJ disorder and bruxism (teeth grinding), and you may also feel embarrassed about your smile. but with the Invisalign® system, our team can offer a clear and comfortable road to an even smile, with optimal results possible in as little as a year.

Starting the Treatment Process

To begin, we will need to conduct a detailed examination with digital x-rays to assess the cause and severity of your misalignment. We can then plan treatment in detail. We will take digital images and measurements of your smile, which will be used by experts in a lab setting to design and craft your series of aligners. These will be made from a clear and BPA-free plastic material so they fit comfortably and offer treatment with precision. You simply wear a set for 20 to 22 hours a day over the course of two weeks. You then begin wearing the next set for the same amount of time as your smile is gradually and gently repositioned.

The Benefits of Invisalign®

The aligners are easy to use and clean, and they can travel with you conveniently too. Being removable means you don’t have to make the same changes to your diet as you would with braces, and brushing and flossing is much simpler, so you’re less vulnerable to tooth decay and teeth stains during treatment. The treatment process is much shorter than is required with braces, and you have fewer office visits too. If you have any questions about how we correct uneven smiles with a series of clear and cozy Invisalign® aligners, or if you’re ready to straighten your smile in 2024, then reach out to our team today. We can offer even smiles for teens and adults alike, and are ready to help you and your family!
