When someone smiles, one of the first things people often notice is the teeth. If teeth are out of alignment even a little bit, it is often noticeable. Though teeth tend to come in at different angles, this does not always mean they require dental intervention. So, do straight teeth even really matter? While there is nothing wrong with a slightly crooked tooth here and there, you may still benefit from Invisalign® in Alpharetta, GA, and Sandy Springs, GA, an aligner orthodontic solution.
Straightening your teeth offers several personal benefits:
- Confidence in your smile
- Easier time speaking and eating
- Fuller shape to your face
- Access to more of your teeth for better brushing and flossing
How Invisalign® Aligner Treatment Works
Aligners are specially molded trays that fit over your teeth and move them into better alignment over time. Treatment typically lasts over a year, and you go through a whole set of aligners during that time. The number of aligners you use depends on the length of treatment. You move to a new aligner as your teeth shift into place. Aligners must be worn for at least 22 hours each day and can only be removed for eating and cleaning your teeth.
There are many advantages to using Invisalign®. The aligners are clear, so they are hardly noticeable to anyone who does not know you are wearing them. You do not have any food restrictions because you can remove the aligners whenever you eat. Keeping your teeth clean is also a breeze because you remove the aligners to brush and floss. Just keep them on for the rest of the day and night, and your teeth will be straighter by the end of the orthodontic treatment.
