Crooked or overlapping teeth can be more than just a cosmetic problem for your smile. They can also negatively impact your oral health by changing the stability and function of your bite, which could lead to problems down the road.
What Are Invisible Braces?
Dr. Paul W. Karpovich is a Timonium, MD Invisalign® provider offering orthodontic treatment with clear aligners for a wide range of dental health and cosmetic concerns. Invisalign offers a discreet method of achieving a healthier, more beautiful smile for both adults and teens. The system will gently and discreetly reposition your teeth in a little over a year, with little impact on your daily activities.
Patients can still enjoy their favorite foods and easily maintain good oral hygiene with Invisalign. The aligners are designed to be worn for about 22 hours a day and won’t irritate the gums or sensitive areas of the mouth. The aligners are simple to remove when it’s time to clean teeth or when they need to be swapped out based on your treatment plan.
Am I Too Old For Invisalign?
Even though the teeth are set in place by adulthood, that does not mean you are too old or it’s too late to consider orthodontic treatment to straighten teeth. Many adults have braces or use Invisalign with positive results. Invisalign can be used to treat mild to moderate orthodontic issues, and it can also be used to address minor tooth movement after previous orthodontic treatment. Invisalign also offers patients options to treat underbite, overbite, and tooth spacing concerns.
Why Should I Straighten My Teeth?
Straightening crooked or overlapping teeth is more than a cosmetic treatment. Crooked teeth are more vulnerable to damage and decay and may cause more problems in the future. Serious overbite and underbite issues can also affect dental health by changing the stability of your bite. Plus, teeth that are aligned properly are easier to brush and floss, reducing your chances of decay and plaque buildup.
