Problems Associated with Crowded Teeth

Believe it or not, crowded teeth are more than just an aesthetic concern. They can also negatively impact your dental health. No matter how well you brush and floss, your teeth can be very difficult to keep clean, especially if they overlap. This allows food particles and plaque to become trapped, which can lead to bad breath. It also increases your risk of tooth decay and gum disease. You’ll even have a heightened risk of dental emergencies.

Alignment issues can also impact your bite, which can cause uneven wear on your enamel. Over time, this can weaken your teeth, making them more prone to decay or fractures. The uneven pressure can also cause stress on your temporomandibular joint, which connects your jaw to your skull on either side of your face. This can lead to a variety of symptoms, including difficulty opening or closing your mouth and jaw pain.

You can invest in your self-esteem and your dental health by correcting your bite and alignment problems.

How Invisalign Corrects Crowded Teeth

Traditionally, brackets and wires are used to correct overcrowding. Although it’s an effective treatment, it has several disadvantages, like being very noticeable. Invisalign resolves the common complaints of traditional braces.

We take an impression of your mouth to create a series of clear plastic aligners worn over your teeth for at least 22 hours per day. You’ll switch to a new aligner in the series every 1-2 weeks. They will provide continual pressure on your teeth to gradually move them into position without brackets and wires. Although everyone’s treatment plan differs, most people are finished with their series of aligners in about 12 months.

While undergoing your treatment, you’ll enjoy several advantages that aren’t possible with metal braces, like a restriction-free diet. Since the aligners are removable, you can still eat and drink anything you want; however, it’s best to remove them when having anything except water.

Your oral hygiene routine will also be easy because there aren’t any brackets or wires to clean around. You’ll bush and floss your teeth as you normally do, but you’ll need to plan a few extra minutes to clean your aligners daily.

You won’t need appointments for adjustments because Invisalign doesn’t use wires, so you’ll spend less time in the dental chair. You’ll still need to come into the office every few weeks to monitor the movement of your teeth.
