Besides the fact that misaligned and crooked teeth can be rather embarrassing they can also affect your oral health. Did you know that teeth that are crooked or misaligned can be more difficult to clean and are prone to decay and gum disease? Of course, if you are an adult you might be thinking, “What can I possibly do about it now?” With Invisalign, our Bloomington, IN family dentist, Dr. Lisa Baker, can get your smile back on track.
Many people assume that Invisalign can only address small orthodontic issues, but you would be surprised how many moderate-to-severe problems Invisalign can actually treat. Invisalign is a great way to address gaps between teeth, crowding, overbites, underbites, crossbites and open bites. Of course, more advanced problems that require complex tooth movements or shifting jaws will require a more traditional orthodontic approach.
Most adults think they are too old for braces, but this simply isn’t true. Okay, let us rephrase this: most adults don’t want to wear braces when they get older. We understand, which is why these clear aligners can be such a great option. No one will notice these aligners and you can get a straighter smile. This treatment is perfect for older teens and adults, but children and younger teens aren’t the best candidates for Invisalign since their teeth are still growing.
While many people want to fix crooked teeth or finally close of those spaces between teeth there are some people who just can’t fathom going through the process of wearing braces. That’s okay; some people just aren’t right for braces. Of course, if you are ready to wear your aligners as often as you need to and you are ready to clean them and maintain, and visit our Bloomington dentist for routine checkups then Invisalign might be right for you. Invisalign easily fits in your lifestyle and makes it easy for even those with busy schedules to straighten their smiles on their time.
