Crooked or teeth that don't line up correctly affect both your smile and your overall health. When you have crooked teeth, your self-confidence may suffer. Teeth that do not line up correctly can make chewing your food more complex and may eventually put pressure on your TMJ joints. Over time, this can lead to headaches, jaw pain, and damaged or broken teeth. Advanced technology now makes it possible for dentists to effectively straighten your teeth without having to use the bulky appliances they were forced to rely on in the past. Now, if you live in the neighborhood of Arden, North Carolina, you can straighten your teeth with invisible aligner trays that you can wear throughout the day and remove them whenever the need arises. Invisalign trays offer you a chance to restore your smile and enjoy life once again.
How Do Invisalign Aligners work?
Invisalign aligners are made from clear, hard plastic. Through computer-generated technology, your dentist takes images of your teeth. A series of aligners are created using those images that will gradually straighten your teeth over a specific period. Aligners are made to be swapped out every two weeks, shifting your teeth progressively with each change of aligners. Most treatment plans will take between 18 months and two years to complete, while others may take up to 36 months.
With each change of the aligners, your teeth are slowly being moved into a new position. The more the aligners are worn, the more balanced and uniform your smile becomes. This gradual improvement will allow you to become more comfortable with your new appearance. You will begin to smile more and become more at ease with your smile. It will give your self-esteem a much-needed boost as well. Improving your smile offers you more than just self-confidence. It also gives you a sense of well-being that you can enjoy throughout the day.
Invisalign aligners are convenient and easy to use. The hard plastic aligners are designed to snap on and off of your teeth with ease. You can take them off while you are eating and when you brush and floss your teeth. If you have a meeting, they can be removed before and quickly snapped back into place once it's over. They are also easy to keep clean and fresh. The aligners are transparent, so you can wear them out in public without anyone even knowing they are in place.
