Are you aware of the risks associated with malocclusions? If you are suffering from a malocclusion, also known as a bad bite, it means your teeth have rotated out of position and are not in their proper locations. Crooked teeth can lead to severe oral health risks, so an orthodontic aligner system such as Invisalign® will need to be employed to correct and straighten your smile.
By having straighter teeth, you will be less likely to suffer from several oral hygiene issues including the buildup of plaque and debris that often is present between crooked teeth. Once your teeth are straightened, not only will they be less likely to harbor harmful bacteria, but they will be easier to clean. Through the use of Invisalign alignment systems, it could be possible to adapt your dental profile to the smile you always needed
Invisalign aligners are 100% customizable and can be crafted to your exact dental profile. There are no metals involved in Invisalign, as they’re made of a patent thermoplastic material. Due to their lack of metal materials, no wires or brackets are needed, which might otherwise increase your chances of dental damage from irritating your gums and possibly tooth enamel. Also, there are no food restrictions with Invisalign because they can be removed as needed. All you have to do is take out your Invisalign aligners before eating and then remember to reinsert them after you are done. Furthermore, they are clear and can allow the natural shine of your teeth the emanate through.
