What has stopped you from starting orthodontic treatment? Patients sometimes hesitate to even mention an interest in straightening their teeth because they assume they will need metal braces. If you worry about this, you should know that there alternatives to these appliances. Our Moreno Valley, CA dentist’s office is prepared to meet with patients and discuss the benefits of using Invisalign aligners to straighten their teeth. With clear aligners, you have the ability to correct gaps and overlaps without committing to a conspicuous and fixed appliance. Remember that orthodontic work is about more than just making your smile more attractive. You will also be able to correct issues that can lead to TMJ disorder and more oral health issues when you straighten your teeth.
Malocclusion Can Hurt Your Confidence And Your Oral Health
Malocclusion refers to problems with teeth that are not properly aligned. When a person is affected by this issue, they can struggle with a lack of confidence because of their appearance. They can also be affected in other ways. Poorly aligned teeth can actually make it difficult for you to maintain an even bite, which can result in problems with chronic jaw stiffness and pain from TMJ disorder. People with teeth that overlap can be more vulnerable to trouble with their oral health because certain areas of their smile are more difficult to clean.
What Can Invisalign Aligners Do For You?
With Invisalign treatment, you can address problems with malocclusion without relying on fixed metal braces to move your teeth. Your treatment will be less conspicuous when you rely on clear aligners, and it will also be less intrusive because you can actually remove Invisalign braces on your own. This means you can move forward with orthodontic treatment without going through aggravating changes in your daily life! By moving your teeth into better positions with your aligners, you can see to it that you are able to smile with more confidence and enjoy the oral health benefits of straighter teeth.
Can I Hide Alignment Problems With Cosmetic Work?
For some patients with minor alignment issues, cosmetic dental work can provide an alternative to corrective treatment. What this means is faster results, as you will not have to wait for permanent adjustments to take hold. One thing we can do is discuss plans to hide gaps or overlaps with custom porcelain veneers. Veneers are carefully made to fit over teeth and hide a variety of flaws. Their placement can often be taken care of in as little as two appointments!
