We tend to make certain assumptions about people who have straight, symmetrical, well-proportioned teeth. According to surveys, we subconsciously attribute qualities like above-average health, good hygiene, and even financial prosperity to people who have been gifted with perfect teeth. And the advantages of an eye-pleasing smile aren’t just cosmetic – teeth that are crooked or misaligned are more difficult to clean properly, which can lead to gum disease and bad breath, tooth decay and even tooth loss.
If your teeth are misaligned, orthodontic treatment with 10010 Invisalign®1 aligners can improve both the function and appearance of your smile. A more comfortable, convenient and discreet method of care, Invisalign treatment can correct many different types of malocclusions (imperfect positioning of the teeth) with a prescribed series of clear, custom-designed aligners. In many cases, Invisalign treatment offers an excellent alternative to traditional orthodontic methods of care, providing a less noticeable treatment method for image conscious adults and teen than the usual orthodontic brackets and wires.
Custom made to fit your smile, 10010 Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible and fit snugly over your teeth. Each aligner is made of a proprietary, BPA-free plastic, which gently shifts your teeth over time, using the properties of physics to maneuver them into their proper positions. The aligners are designed to use the right amount of force in the right place at the right time following a custom treatment plan mapped out by your dentist. Because the trays are barely visible in your mouth, if you decide that 10010 Invisalign treatment is right for you, your friends, family and coworkers may not even notice them. The smooth plastic trays won’t scratch or damage the inside of your mouth, and you can remove them for eating and cleaning, or for special occasions.
