Patients who brush and floss daily and visit their dentist on schedule for dental exams and professional teeth cleanings are often disheartened when their teeth are not straight despite their attention to care.
Your dentist in Glenmont understands the frustration, which is why we offer Invisalign clear aligners to help you reach your smile goals.
Invisalign consists of clear aligners designed from a direct impression taken of your teeth. These aligners bring your teeth in line gradually—provided you wear them as directed, which is usually 22 hours per day. You switch aligners approximately every 14 days.
Invisalign may correct an overbite, underbite, and crossbite, and generally crooked teeth. However, your dentist determines whether this treatment is right for you and whether it will correct your bite issues before recommending Invisalign therapy.
An aligned bite and straight teeth promote better dental health. An even bite can mean less wear on specific teeth when chewing or biting. Straight teeth are also easier to clean effectively with your toothbrush because there are fewer nooks for bacteria to hide and collect.
