Living with crooked or misaligned teeth impacts your life in many ways. Besides affecting your confidence, did you know that crooked teeth also impact your oral health? A bite that is misaligned can cause problems with your jaw joint that can contribute to a painful disorder known as TMJ. Crooked teeth are also more difficult to keep clean, which can put you at a higher risk for periodontal disease and tooth decay.
Maybe you’ve considered straightening your teeth, but you’re not comfortable with the idea of wearing bulky metal braces? After all, not many folks want to speak at the next business meeting in their braces. Perhaps you should consider if Invisalign in Dublin may be the solution you’re looking for.
What is Invisalign?
Instead of traditional metal braces, Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to apply gentle pressure to your teeth and move them gradually. Your dental provider creates a plan for aligning your teeth, which is used to fabricate your aligners. You’ll need to wear your aligners for at least 20-22 hours per day and change them every two weeks. Most Invisalign cases can be completed in 12-18 months depending on the severity of the case. The result is a beautifully aligned smile you will enjoy sharing with the world!
What are the Benefits of Invisalign?
Because your aligners are made of clear plastic, they’re virtually invisible. The snug fit makes them comfortable and easy to wear, and they don’t interfere with talking or smiling.
Aligners can be removed for eating, brushing, flossing and the occasional big event. This means that there are no restrictions to your diet and your home care routine will not have to change.
Am I a Candidate For Invisalign?
Your dental provider can determine whether Invisalign will work well for your needs with an examination, x-rays and photos. With 3D technology Invisalign creates your customized aligners, and you’ll even be able to see what your newly aligned smile will look like before you start treatment. Invisalign is a great option for busy adults who would like to straighten their teeth with discretion.
