Dr. Eric Paster Offers Invisalign and Clear Correct – Clear Aligner Therapy
There are many reasons patients want to move their teeth. If I asked most people why someone would have orthodontic treatment, most people would say, “To straighten my teeth so they look good”. In fact, that is why most parents opt to have their children go through orthodontic treatment. But what if I told you the most important reason we recommend orthodontic therapy is to improve the FUNCTION of your teeth? Here are a few health benefits reasons to consider aligning your teeth with Invisalign:
- Function: Teeth that are positioned properly are not traumatizing one another – SO THEY LAST LONGER!
- Gingival health and cleanliness: Aligned teeth are easier to keep clean and prevent food traps
- Esthetics: Aligned teeth look great!
Notice the #1 reason I list is function! When teeth are not working well together, they are causing damage to each other. Tap your teeth together, does it feel like everything hits evenly? When you slide your lower jaw from side to side are many teeth bumping? These are signs of a traumatic bite. Unfortunately, this is also the #1 thing that is over-looked by dentist and orthodontists. They tend to make your smile straight, and end treatment there. When your bite is not in harmony, 2 things can happen:
1. Teeth chip, fracture or break,
2. Teeth at are in trauma slowly move out of the way of trauma (become crooked again).
How Invisalign Clear Aligner Therapy Collegeville Can Help
Invisalign clear aligner therapy in Collegeville takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontist plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference in your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth!
Not All Invisalign Practitioners Are Created Equal.
The important point I want you to take home is that when you are finished Invisalign, your bite should be harmonized in order to look and feel great. Not all Invisalign practitioners are created equal. Many dentists just send impressions of your teeth to Invisalign, and let them design your smile. What you can end up with, if you are lucky, are teeth that look aligned, but function poorly together. I have spent countless hours studying the art of Invisalign; if you desire a healthy smile that looks and feels great, ask me about it at your next visit!
