Straighter teeth are beautiful, but did you know they are also healthier for teeth and gums and the rest of your body?

Studies show a connection between crooked and misaligned teeth and overall health. One of the main reasons is oral hygiene. Firstly, it’s impossible to clean crooked teeth, secondly, uncleaned teeth cause tooth decay and gum disease.

According to Libertyville Dental Associates, one of the best ways to fix mild to moderate tilted and crooked teeth is with Invisalign®.

Invisalign® for Straighter Teeth

Decades old, the clear plastic aligner system gently aligns teeth based on digital pictures and a thorough examination.

The Invisalign® software decides how many aligners you will have, between 10 and 30 more or less, and how long you will go between swaps. Generally you will swap out your current set of aligners for a new set every 14 days or so.

Clear braces are removed when you eat, drink and clean your teeth. That means you’ll wear them for 22 hours every day.

Libertyville Dental Associates cannot stress the importance of sticking to your customized Invisalign® prescription. If you don’t you’ll be wearing your aligners longer than you or your dentist had hoped.

When you follow the instructions you may only have to wear your aligners for 12 months. However, some patients see results in as little as six months while others will wear Invisalign® for about 18 months.

Is Invisalign® Right for Me?

Like all things dental you’ll need a checkup to determine if you are a good fit for Invisalign®. If you have a severed under or overbite or an extremely wide space between your teeth conventional braces might be the better solution. Again, only your dentist will know for sure.
