In addition to a better-looking smile, having straighter teeth can lead to better oral health. That’s right: teeth that are crooked or misaligned are more than just unsightly, they can cause problems for your oral health and affect your overall well-being. Overlapping teeth are more difficult to keep clean, so the risk of dental issues such as cavities and gum disease is higher. Moreover, a bad bite can cause functional problems and even contribute to a TMJ disorder.
Despite the desire for straight teeth later in life, many adults don’t want to go through the process of wearing conventional metal braces. For that reason Dr. Konikoff and his team are proud to offer 23505 Invisalign® aligners to patients looking to straighten crooked or crowded teeth, close gaps or reduce overbites. Invisalign aligners are a form of orthodontic treatment that can correct many types of malocclusions (imperfect positioning of the teeth) with a series of clear, plastic custom-designed trays. These aligners, designed and fabricated via 3-D computer imaging technology, are each worn for a couple of weeks, incrementally moving the teeth into place until the final desired corrections are reached.
The advantage and appeal of Invisalign appliances is that they are more cosmetic and more comfortable than most other orthodontic appliances. 23505 Invisalign orthodontic treatment is practically invisible, offering a less-noticeable alternative to metal braces; they’re an excellent option for adults looking for a more comfortable and less conspicuous method of care.
