Spaces Invisalign – Powell, OH
Get a Straight Smile with Clear Aligners
If you have gaps between your teeth, you’re not alone. In fact, just 35% of adults have well-aligned teeth, but now braces aren’t just for kids. 1 in 5 orthodontic patients is over the age of 18 because of less noticeable treatments. Invisalign in Powell can give you the results you want without brackets and wires. The clear aligners will move your teeth closer together to give you the beautiful smile you deserve.
Why Do I Have Gaps Between My Teeth?
Besides overcrowded or rotated teeth, alignment issues can also include larger than average gaps between the teeth, which can be caused by various factors, such as:
- Periodontal disease
- Thumb-sucking or using a pacifier
- Smaller than average teeth
- Tongue thrust
- Missing Teeth
- Large frenulum
The spaces aren’t just an aesthetic problem. Instead, food particles and plaque can get trapped between your teeth, increasing your risk of several oral health concerns, like tooth decay and gum disease. No matter the cause, we have the solution you need to invest in straight teeth to keep your smile healthy.
Am I a Candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign can correct a variety of bite and alignment problems; however, you’ll need to schedule an initial consultation with your cosmetic dentist in Powell to ensure clear aligners are the right choice for you. We’ll perform a thorough consultation to examine and discuss the results you want to achieve to create a personalized treatment plan. Overall, clear aligners are best for people who:
- Want a less noticeable treatment.
- Want quick results.
- Can commit to following their treatment plan.
- Practice proper oral hygiene at home.
- Visit their dentist regularly.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign differs from traditional braces because clear aligners apply consistent pressure to the teeth instead of pulling them with brackets and wires. We’ll use digital impressions of your mouth to create a series of aligners to gradually move them into their ideal positions.
You must wear the aligners for at least 22 hours per day and switch to the next one in the series on time, about every week. On average, it takes 12 months to finish the series. At the end of your treatment, you’ll need a retainer to prevent your teeth from moving back into their previous positions.
What are the Benefits of Invisalign?
Many teens and adults are choosing the clear choice in orthodontics because it offers a variety of exceptional benefits, such as:
- FDA-approved treatment.
- Virtually invisible for a discreet option.
- No irritation to the inside of your lips or cheeks.
- No dietary restrictions because the aligners are removable.
