If you want to straighten your smile without the use of clunky metal, you’ll want to learn more about Invisalign in Pembroke Pines. This invisible form of orthodontic treatment has become a popular choice among older teens and adults who value the privacy it offers. Before you decide to choose Invisalign, let’s talk about the factors that your dental care provider will discuss with you.
Unless you’ve lost all of your baby teeth and your second molars have already erupted, Invisalign won’t work for you. This type of treatment works best for older teenagers and adults.
While clear aligners can effectively move your teeth to their proper places, they won’t be able to shift your jaw. If your jaw is misaligned, you’ll need headgear and braces to fix it. In other words, Invisalign treatment is ideal for patients who are suffering from mild to moderate dental problems that include the following:
Unlike traditional metal braces that are securely glued to your teeth, Invisalign clear aligners are removable. To say that this requires a lot of responsibility on your part is an understatement.
Unless you have to take them out for cleaning and meals, you have to wear your Invisalign aligners for at least 22 hours a day. If you forget to wear them for the prescribed amount of time, you’ll end up setting your treatment period back by weeks or months.
At Village Square Dental, we want you to achieve the kind of smile you can be proud of. If you’re uncomfortable with the way your teeth look, don’t hesitate to contact us today to set up an appointment.
