Do you have dental misalignment? If you have crooked, crowded, and overlapping teeth, then you need orthodontic treatment. Our team can offer a cosmetic alternative to traditional braces with our clear orthodontics. In today’s blog, your Dallas, TX, dentist looks at ClearCorrect and Invisalign®, which can offer a nearly invisible road to smile correction.
The Importance of Treating Your Misalignment
When we have misalignment, this can make it more difficult to thoroughly brush and floss our teeth, which increases the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. The stress on your jaw joints from poor alignment could also increase the risk of complications like TMJ disorder or bruxism (teeth grinding). You may also feel hesitant to show off your smile, which impacts your social interactions. But by treating your misalignment, you can gain new confidence in your simple and also enjoy better bite function and oral health. For a cosmetic alternative to braces, we could provide ClearCorrect or Invisalign®.
ClearCorrect and Invisalign®
Both of these treatment options use clear aligners to correct the alignment of your teeth. With ClearCorrect and Invisalign®, we will take detailed digital images of your smile from multiple angles and then combine them to create a 3D impression of your smile. Experts in a special lab setting will then use the impression and images we take to create a series of clear plastic aligners. Each one is made specifically for your smile, so they fit comfortably and offer treatment with precision. Treatment involves wearing a set for around 20 to 22 hours a day over the course of about two weeks. You then wear the next set in the series and continue this process until you gain a straighter smile!
The Benefits of Clear and Removable Braces
The aligners are clear in appearance and barely noticeable, and they also fit comfortably and prevent gum and cheek irritation. The treatment time is shorter, with optimal results available in as little as one year. The braces are easy to clean and use, and you require fewer visits to our office. They’re also removable, so you take them out before meals instead of changing your diet, and being removable also means more effective brushing and flossing, so you avoid tooth decay and discoloration during treatment. If you have any questions about how we correct poor alignment with our clear and cozy orthodontic aligners, then contact our team today. ClearCorrect and Invisalign® can provide even results without changing your appearance during treatment!
