Crooked teeth or a misaligned bite is expressed as malocclusion. If you have malocclusion, Dr. Amy Richter may recommend Invisalign® in Buffalo, New York, to help you reach a straight smile. Invisalign is a set of aligners that is designed specifically for your smile. They are worn over the teeth for 20 to 22 hours a day to gently straighten the smile. Every week or two, you will receive the next set of aligners to further your straightening treatment.
Straightening your teeth with Invisalign has lots of benefits, including:
The Cosmetic Alternative to Adult Braces
Invisalign uses virtually invisible plastic to straighten your teeth. Most people will not even realize that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment. Because of this, you can smile with pride!
Proper Oral Hygiene
Cleaning your teeth is much more straightforward with Invisalign than with braces, as Invisalign aligners are removable.
Better Oral Health
Red, inflamed gums can be the result of teeth that are too crowded or gapped. Unhealthy gums are a sign of gum disease. With straight teeth, the gums can fit more properly around the teeth.
Eat What You Like
There are no food limitations with Invisalign, so you can continue to chew gum and eat popcorn, whole apples, and all the other foods you love.
