Crowded Teeth & Invisalign – Irving, TX

Get a Straight Smile with Clear Aligners

Few people are born with naturally straight smiles. If you’re among those who have crowded or misaligned teeth, it’s easy to feel insecure when you smile or speak. Unfortunately, your self-esteem isn’t the only area to suffer. Alignment issues can also impact your dental health. Now, you don’t need to turn to metal braces to move your teeth. Instead, you can choose clear braces in Irving. Invisalign is the discreet, convenient solution you need for a straight smile.

Potential Problems with Crowded Teeth

Believe it or not, alignment issues aren’t just an aesthetic concern. They also increase your risk of several dental problems because they are more difficult to keep clean. As a result, you’re more likely to experience many common oral health issues, like tooth decay and gum disease. If you have a tooth that’s rotated or protruding from the others, you also have a heightened risk of an oral health emergency because it can take the brunt of the impact if there’s trauma to your mouth.

Not only can your dental health suffer the effects of crooked teeth but also your quality of life. Alignment issues can create an improper bite. This can lead to uneven pressure on your temporomandibular joint, which connects your jaw to your skull on either side of your face. This can cause reoccurring jaw pain and a variety of other symptoms.

The uneven pressure can also place you at a higher risk of additional dental problems, like worn enamel. Over time, this also raises the likeliness for a broken or fractured tooth down the road.

How Invisalign Helps with Crowded Teeth

Invisalign can give you a healthy, confident smile. Instead of using brackets and wires to align your teeth, clear aligners gradually move them into position. We create a series of clear plastic aligners worn over your teeth for at least 22 hours per day. You’ll switch to a new aligner in the series after about 1 week. Depending on the severity of your alignment issues, most people are finished with their series of aligners in about 12 months.

While on your journey to a straight smile, you’ll enjoy a less restrictive treatment than metal braces because the aligners are removable. You can still eat or drink what you like but only have water while wearing them. Since the aligners aren’t fixed to your teeth, your oral hygiene routine doesn’t change. There aren’t any brackets or wires to clean around, so brushing and flossing are a breeze.

You’ll also spend less time in the dental chair because you won’t need appointments for adjustments. You will still need to come into the office every few weeks so we can monitor the movement of your teeth.
