The Problem With Misaligned Teeth
Did you know that people with crooked teeth often suffer socially? According to the New York Times’ bestseller SuperFreakanomics, people with bad teeth suffer a substantial wage penalty. Unfortunately, women with bad teeth are affected by this even further. After considering this surprising information, correcting your smile may be the best career investment you've ever made.
Maintaining a great appearance is not the only reason to make sure your teeth are aligned properly. People with straight teeth tend to have healthier smiles. This is because brushing and flossing straight teeth is easier. When teeth are properly aligned, there are no hidden, hard-to-reach crevices that a toothbrush and floss cannot reach.
Another issue many with misaligned teeth suffer from is malocclusion, which means the upper and lower teeth do not touch properly when biting down. If it is not addressed, malocclusion can lead to periodontal disease and create undue stress on teeth and jaws. This will eventually lead to premature wear on your teeth which could eventually necessitate other, more expensive dental intervention such as crowns.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign uses a series of removable, clear, BPA-free plastic aligners to gradually and invisibly straighten your teeth. Invisalign is comfortable to wear and it does not require any changes to your busy lifestyle. All you have to do is switch to the next set of aligners about every two weeks (as directed by Dr. Mark Gladnick or Dr. Jason Justison), and your teeth will be gently nudged into the smile you’ve always hoped for.
You will visit our office every month or two to check your progression and to get new aligners. Average treatment time is only a year. Thanks to the convenience of the removable aligners, you don’t have to eliminate your favorite foods. Plus, keeping your teeth and gums healthy is as simple as maintaining your usual brushing and flossing routine.
Advantages of Invisalign
Teens and adults also love the discreet, yet effective results of Invisalign! No more "metal mouth" comments from friends or embarrassing food particles that often get stuck in ordinary braces! There are no restrictions on eating since the aligners can be easily removed before eating. This will eliminate trips to the dentist to repair a broken wire or spring.
Whether you are a student at the University of Delaware trying to make a good impression, a professional in Wilmington trying to impress clients, or simply someone who cares about your appearance, Invisalign will ensure that you are putting your best smile forward.
