Do you have crooked or crowded teeth, a crossbite, an underbite, an overbite, or spacing issues with your teeth? Do you dread the thought of braces? To find out if you would be a good candidate for Invisalign, San Ramon area residents can schedule a consultation with our dentist, Guri S. Dhaliwal DMD.
How Invisalign Works
Using a series of aligners, your teeth are gradually and gently shifted into position. The aligners are made of smooth, clear BPA-free plastic so most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth. They’ll just see the beautiful results over time.
Benefits of Invisalign
Unlike braces, there are no metal brackets or wires to tighten, you just change aligners every two weeks. The aligners can also be removed so you can brush and floss normally. Best of all, there are no restrictions on what you can eat! Many people prefer Invisalign to more traditional braces as they are less noticeable to others, which can be important to maintaining a professional appearance.
Straightening your teeth isn’t just about appearances. Straight teeth are healthier teeth. Properly aligned teeth are easier to brush and floss than crooked teeth, which means that you can avoid harmful bacteria that can be trapped between the teeth and gums leading to gum disease. Properly aligned teeth also reduce the pressure and unnatural stress created when teeth don’t fit together correctly, so they prevent abnormal wear on the tooth surface. Premature wear can lead to poor root support, loose teeth, and eventually tooth loss. The stress from poorly aligned teeth can also cause your teeth to chip and break., leading to more costly restorative treatment down the road.
