Manage your misaligned teeth with Invisalign
Crooked teeth or misaligned teeth can lead to bite problems which are otherwise known as malocclusion. This usually occurs when there is an overcrowding of teeth on the jaw or the teeth are small and cannot fill the spaces in the jaw thus resulting to uneven spaces between teeth. Crooked, crowded, misaligned and unevenly spaced teeth do not only affect the appearance of individual but also how he/she perceives his/her self.
In order to correct malocclusion, dental braces are prescribed by orthodontists. Traditional braces are consists of metal wires and brackets used to apply force to the teeth to properly align them. Due to the fact that these braces are made from metals, there are people who are hesitant to use them because they are not aesthetically pleasing to the eye. In order to resolve such problem, an alternative was made and was called Invisalign.
Invisalign is a set of custom-fitted clear aligners made from thermoplastic materials used to correct misaligned teeth. It is hardly visible to the eye making them an ideal choice for those who wanted to correct their bite problem without everyone knowing about it.
You may ask, why Invisalign? Aside from being invisible to the eye, another advantage of using this type of aligner is that it can be removed before eating thus minimizing the chances of food debris being caught up in the aligner. It also allows its user to brush and floss their teeth easily. It is also gum friendly because it eliminates the use of metals that can harm the gum tissues.
Another advantage of Invisalign is that it uses 3D imaging thus allowing you to see the treatment plan and the projected end goal in using this aligner.
