If you’ve reached adulthood with less-than-straight teeth, you may think there’s no hope for a straight smile. But you’re wrong! It’s now possible to straighten your teeth without the embarrassment and inconvenience of metal braces. Whether it’s for your wedding, a new job or a needed self-confidence boost, a beautiful smile has benefits for every age.
There are many reasons to straighten your smile, even as an adult. Crooked teeth can cause an improper bite leading to speech or chewing difficulties, jaw problems, chipped teeth and increased wear on your tooth structure. It’s also harder to thoroughly clean between teeth that are too close together or overlapping – meaning you’re more likely to have issues with gum disease, bad breath and tooth decay as you age. Teeth that are too far apart leave open spaces that trap food particles, which can also lead to a host of oral issues.
At High Peaks Dental, we offer Invisalign to address all of these orthodontic issues and give you the confidence of a beautiful smile. Invisalign is a way to straighten your teeth without braces, using a series of hard, clear plastic, computer-designed trays similar to a mouthguard. The comfortable and virtually clear aligners gently and gradually move your teeth into the proper position — without the unsightly metal brackets, wires and rubberbands of traditional braces. In fact, many Invisalign patients tell us people don’t even notice their trays! There are also no food restrictions with Invisalign and fewer visits to your dentist, perfect for a busy lifestyle. With Invisalign, you can have the smile you’ve always wanted in approximately 9 to 15 months.
If you’ve wanted to straighten your teeth, but haven’t wanted braces, watch these patient success stories and contact us for a personal consultation to answer your questions and determine if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign treatment.
