Whether you are young or old, having crooked teeth can be embarrassing. Years ago, braces were the only option for those who wanted to have straight teeth. Fortunately, that’s not the case anymore. If you are looking to have straighter teeth and a more confident smile, one of the best things that you can do is to consider Invisalign in Irvine, CA. The first thing that you have to do is make a dentist appointment at O.C. Lakes Dental and we will help you determine if Invisalign is right for you.
Reduces Risk of Getting Gum Disease
If you have overcrowded or improperly spaced teeth, you have greater risk of getting gum disease. If your teeth are placed where they’re supposed to be, your gums will be firm around your teeth, meaning you have a reduced risk of infections.
Corrects Bite Issues
Invisalign will remedy all types of bite issues, from underbites, open bites and overbites.
Overbite - This means your upper teeth are protruding beyond your booth teeth. This often happens due to genetics, bad oral health and underdeveloped bones.
Underbite – This happens when your upper jaw hasn’t grown enough or your
lower jaw has grown too much, or sometimes both. Missing teeth also can create this problem.
Open – This happens when your upper and lower teeth are unable to make contact with the ones that they are facing. This often happens due to a jaw that is oddly formed or a lot of thumb sucking.
It’s Painless & Comparably Fast
Unlike other types of tooth straightening solutions, it’s easy, fast and painless. When you wear braces, you usually have to wear them the same amount of time as Invisalign but they often take longer. Invisalign is non-invasive and proves much more comfortable.
You can remove your Invisalign brush your teeth and floss them like you would normally. This will help you with improving your hygiene while you are straightening your teeth.
Eat What You Love
One of the things that anyone with braces knows is that there are certain foods that they can’t eat. They can’t eat crunchy or sticky foods since braces can’t be removed for a few years. But that’s not a problem with Invisalign. You can eat popcorn, licorice, pretzels, bagels or other things you enjoy.
Boost Your Confidence
Unlike with braces, Invisalign isn’t nearly as noticeable. So, you don’t have to worry about being embarrassed about wearing them. They also are going to straighten your teeth, so you get more confidence after they are done doing their job.
These are just some of the many benefits that you will find when you choose Invisalign. If you are looking for a way to straighten your teeth, why not make an appointment with one of our dentists?
