Many patients with crooked teeth who did not receive orthodontic treatment in childhood avoid straightening their teeth in adulthood due to the embarrassment of metal braces. Longmeadow, MA cosmetic dentist Dr.Ziemba and Dr. Evans offer patients Invisalign® for a clear, discreet and effective way to straighten teeth at any age. Invisalign comfortably realigns teeth in a way that is barely visible to other people allowing patients to feel confident in their social and professional interactions while benefiting their oral health.
Crooked Teeth: More Than A Cosmetic Concern
Crooked teeth are more than just a cosmetic dental concern. Crooked teeth can lead to a whole range of oral health problems. From tooth decay to complex bite disorders, crooked teeth can damage your oral health. Crooked teeth make it difficult to properly clean teeth leaving behind gum disease and decay causing tartar and plaque build up. Patients with crooked teeth are also more prone to developing TMJ, a chronic pain disorder that affects the jaw joint.
Benefits of Clear Braces
Invisalign clear braces offer patients of all ages a way to straighten their teeth and protect their smiles from future damage. Invisalign works through a series of custom-fit clear aligners made out of a soft hard plastic. Dr. Ziemba and Dr. Evans will custom design a series of aligners using state of the art imaging technology. These aligners will be worn in progression for about a year. Exact treatment time will be determined by your personal oral health and orthodontic needs.
Invisalign eliminates the hassle of traditional metal braces. Invisalign aligners are removable for effective oral hygiene practices. You may also remove aligners to eat or for special occasions. Patients who wear Invisalign have fewer cavities and damage to their soft oral tissues than patients who wear metal braces.
