Hello and welcome to the Legacy Smiles blog!
We are your trusted source for comprehensive dentistry solutions in Billings, Montana!
Today we want to talk about a wonderful solution for improving your smile as an adult: Invisalign. Invisalign can save the appearance of your crooked, crowded, or gapped smile. But it can also save your oral health from big-time problems down the road!
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign ignores the metal brackets and wires that used to be the only effective way to transform a smile. This forward-looking system makes the realignment happen through a series of clear plastic aligner trays.
These aligners are switched out by you every two weeks or so until treatment wraps up in only about 12 months. Your aligners won’t be noticed by anyone and they are way more comfortable to wear than old-school metal braces.
They aren’t permanently attached either so you can take them out whenever it makes sense to do so. Eating is easy. And cleaning your equipment will be a simple matter. We recommend that you wear your aligners for at least 22 hours a day for optimum treatment speed. But regardless, you won’t have to wait around 2-3 years to see an improvement!
Invisalign changed the rules for getting a great grin. It also increases your oral health by taking on some major issues.
Get Over Your Overbite
An overbite can bring your smile down. But it also can place extra stress on your teeth and lead to worn-down or cracked teeth that will need to be addressed.
Invisalign takes care of your bite problems now saving you time and money later.
No One Likes A Crowd
Crowded teeth can detract from your appearance, but they are not just a cosmetic annoyance. This can actually increase your odds of getting gum disease. You see, teeth that are too close together are impossible to keep clean. Bacteria and other bad things will be able to hide from your toothbrush and dental floss.
As plaque builds up and causes inflammation and infection, tooth loss and other health concerns can cause real trouble for you.
Close The Gaps!
Gaps are bad for your smile. Your individual teeth will not be protected by the surrounding teeth as long as there are spaces. But Invisalign can help you hang onto your natural teeth by shifting things into place.
