Crooked or overlapping teeth can do more than hurt your confidence in your smile. They can also affect your oral health by the stability and function of your bite, which can lead to serious oral dental issues down the road.
What Are Invisible Braces?
Dr. James P. Furgurson of Chapel Hill Family & Cosmetic Dentistry is a Chapel Hill, NC Invisalign® provider offering treatment with clear aligners for a wide range of dental health and cosmetic concerns. Invisalign offers a discreet way to correct minor tooth alignment problems in six months to a year, with little impact on your daily activities.
Patients can still enjoy their favorite foods and easily maintain good oral hygiene with the Invisalign system. The aligners are designed to be worn for about 22 hours a day and won’t irritate the gums or sensitive tissues of the mouth. They are also easy to remove when it’s time for oral hygiene or to swap them out for another set based on your treatment plan.
Am I Too Old For Invisalign?
Even though our teeth are usually set in place by adulthood, that does not mean you are too old or it’s too late to consider orthodontic treatment to straighten teeth. Many adults use traditional metal braces or the Invisalign system with positive results. Invisalign can be used to resolve mild to moderate orthodontic issues, and it can also be used to correct minor tooth movement after previous orthodontic treatment. Invisalign also offers patients options to treat underbite, overbite, and tooth spacing concerns.
Why Should I Straighten My Teeth?
Straightening crooked or overlapping teeth should be more than a cosmetic concern for you. Crooked teeth are more likely to be damaged and more susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease. Serious overbite and underbite issues can also affect dental health by changing the stability of your bite. Plus, teeth that are aligned properly are easier to brush and floss, reducing your chances of decay and plaque buildup.
