Crooked teeth do not just discourage you from smiling and cause you to feel embarrassed. Studies show that having crooked teeth can lead to oral health problems. The reason being is that crooked teeth are more challenging to clean compared to straight teeth. If food particles and bacteria aren’t removed thoroughly during brushing and flossing, bacteria and plaque are guaranteed to fester. That can lead to the formation of tooth decay and cavities. Before, people wore braces to straighten their teeth. Today, they can opt for an invisible orthodontic treatment known as Invisalign. Here are a few basic facts about Invisalign.
Invisalign in Pompano Beach is the modern counterpart of traditional braces. It’s made from clear patented material designed to fit your teeth and gums. These customized removable clear trays are worn for a specified period to gradually move your teeth until they reach their desired positions. More and more adults are drawn to Invisalign because of its sleek and modern design. The trays are virtually invisible, which makes them ideal for adults who do not like a mouth full of metal.
The reason why Invisalign aligners are effective is that they utilize CAD/CAM technology. These systems enable your orthodontist to design trays that are customized to fit your teeth perfectly. The removable trays apply pressure on your teeth to reposition them until you get a straight smile. Your orthodontist will require you to wear them around 22 hours a day and the only time you should remove them is when you eat and brush your teeth.
