You know that straighter teeth create a more attractive smile. But did you know that straight teeth are healthier, too? Crowded teeth can give food particles, bacteria and tartar a place to hide causing decay and gum disease. Additionally, crooked teeth and misaligned jaws are associated with headaches, earaches, dizziness, and neck pain. Correcting the bite can alleviate these symptoms, improve function and comfort, and reduce the potential for tooth wear.
You want straight teeth, both for health and cosmetic reasons, but as an adult, you're not looking forward to a mouth full of metal. We completely understand. You've worked hard to present a professional image and would like a more grown up solution to orthodontics. That's why Hudson Valley Dental Arts offers invisible braces for our adult orthodontic patients.
Invisible braces are essentially a series of clear, removable aligners used to gently reposition your teeth. Instead of brackets and archwires, you'll wear each aligner for about two weeks. Treatment times vary depending on the individual case, but invisible braces generally require less treatment time than traditional metal braces.
Invisible braces have multiple benefits for adult orthodontic patients. You'll avoid the uncomfortable abrasions associated with metal in your mouth. Because the aligners are removable, they are easy to keep clean, you don't have to brush around brackets bonded to your teeth, you can enjoy any food you choose, and when that big night comes up, you can remove you aligner for a wonderful, orthodontic-free evening out!
