Get a Straight Smile with Clear Aligners
Few people are born with a naturally straight smile. If you are among those who have crooked or overcrowded teeth, it is easy to feel insecure about your appearance. Unfortunately, aesthetics is not the only concern. Your alignment issues can also hurt your oral health. Although you have always wanted a straight smile, you do not want to deal with the visibility or restrictions of metal braces. At Westgate Dental Care, we have the sophisticated solution you need. Invisalign in Arlington Heights can correct your overcrowded teeth to give you a beautiful smile.
Why Should I Fix My Crowded Teeth?
Crowded teeth can occur for several reasons, such as genetics or a smaller than average jaw. No matter the reason, it can lead to an unattractive smile. Besides lowering your self-esteem, your alignment issues make your teeth harder to clean. Despite the best brushing and flossing techniques, food particles and plaque can become trapped between your teeth. This significantly increases your risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
Crowded teeth also raise your risk for a dental emergency. It can cause uneven wear on your teeth, leading to a break or fracture. In some cases, it can even cause a receding gum line. If there is trauma to your mouth, you also have a heightened risk for a broken or knocked out tooth.
Moving your teeth into their ideal positions improves your oral health and lessens the potential for a dental emergency. You will also have a beautiful smile that you will want to show off.
What Can I Expect?
Although Invisalign can be used to treat an array of orthodontic cases, you still need a consultation with your orthodontist in Arlington Heights to ensure it is the right treatment for you. After evaluating your teeth and bite, we take pictures and impressions of your mouth to create a series of clear plastic aligners. You wear them over your teeth for at least 22 hours per day. You switch to the next aligner in the series after about 1 week. On average, it takes about 12 months to finish your series of aligners. As you progress through your treatment plan, you will see your teeth move into their ideal positions, giving you the smile that you have always wanted.
