Straightening Crooked Teeth without Braces
Crooked teeth are a significant concern for many more reasons than you might initially realize. While the appearance of your smile may be the most noticeable issue, you might also have an imbalance in your bite that exposes your teeth to excessive pressure. This imbalance can lead to tooth damage, increased risks of tooth infection, and increasingly more difficult bite function.
Invisalign® clear aligners allow patients to correct their crooked teeth and avoid these consequences without relying on more noticeable metal braces.
The Science of Straightening Teeth
Straightening crooked teeth is the main focus of Invisalign’s orthodontic treatment. Traditional braces are achieved using brackets that are bonded to your teeth and an archwire that connects them. Tightening the arch wire generates the pressure necessary to realign your teeth until they are correctly aligned gently, and your bite can function more efficiently.
Invisalign® aligners have the same goal of correcting your tooth alignment, but they achieve it by using their comfortable, transparent aligners to guide teeth into place gently. Invisalign® in Tucson involves a series of aligner sets designed to move your teeth to a certain degree, with each successive aligner picking up where the previous one left off.
The Benefits of Invisalign® Aligners
Straightening crooked teeth is beneficial for many reasons, including reducing your risks of tooth damage, decay, and more. Yet, choosing Invisalign® clear aligners to straighten your teeth offers several additional benefits compared to traditional orthodontics. For example:
- Your aligners will be nearly invisible, offering higher confidence and discretion throughout your treatment.
- Invisalign® treatment is more comfortable than conventional braces.
- You can remove your aligners to eat, brush your teeth, and floss more conveniently than you can with braces.
- You won’t have to worry about the dentist periodically tightening any wires, so your routine maintenance visits will be less frequent.
What is the Invisalign Process?
The process involves several steps that work together to create the perfect smile. Firstly, our team will examine your teeth and take X-rays and impressions of your mouth to create a custom treatment plan. Once your treatment plan is ready, you will receive a set of clear, customized aligners you will wear for a specific time.
During your treatment, you will switch aligners every two weeks, gradually shifting your teeth into a more aligned position. You’ll need to maintain good oral hygiene throughout the treatment.
After your treatment period is complete, Dr. Newman can provide you with a retainer to wear to keep your teeth in their new and improved position.
