If you had alignment issues with your teeth that went uncorrected in your adolescent years, or the alignment of your teeth has started to change with age, it can leave you with an unappealing smile. In many of these cases the deviations in your dentition can also increase your chances of suffering from dental fractures.
In a scenario like this you should consider setting up a consultation appointment with a orthodontist like Dr. Dipak Chudasama. After an essential examination he might recommend correcting your alignment issues with Invisalign®.
These popular clear plastic aligners will be designed to match the shape of your teeth and the unique contours of your bite pattern. Every two weeks you will need to change to a new set of aligners. Each one will tension your teeth to move them one step closer to their ideal alignment.
You will need to wear the clear plastic aligners in your mouth for up to 22 hours each day. With consistent use, most patients achieve their alignment goals in three to four sets of aligners.
After your teeth have achieved their intended alignment, you will need to use a clear plastic retainer for a few weeks. With consistent use, it will help ensure that your teeth remain in their new position while any lingering tension in your periodontal connective tissues dissipates.
If you are in the Coppell, Texas, area and you have minor alignment issues with your teeth, you should call 972-538-4304 to set up an Invisalign® consultation at Orthodontic Avenue.
