If you have crooked or overlapping teeth, it may interfere with optimal brushing and flossing. It can also mean an uneven bite that leads to undue wear on your enamel, future cavities and possibly breakage. The good news is that we offer Invisalign in Bayside. Invisalign is a discreet way to straighten your smile.
Invisalign means no metal or wires in your mouth during teeth-straightening therapy. Instead, you work through a series of clear, plastic aligners to bring your smile in line.
How Invisalign in Bayside Works
Your dentist in Bayside takes impressions of your smile, and Invisalign uses these models to create your clear aligners.
Typically, you wear your aligners for 22 hours each day for a predetermined period of time. You also change them out every few weeks or according to your dentist’s instructions.
You can remove your aligners to eat, brush your teeth and floss. No concerns about food particles getting stuck in your braces. This may also mean more attuned brushing and flossing because there are no wires to get in the way.
Invisalign in Bayside can correct the following mild to moderate smile issues:
- Crooked teeth
- Twisted teeth
- Overlapping teeth
- Smile gaps
- Bite issues
Following therapy with Invisalign in Bayside, your dentist provides a retainer to help keep your smile in line by avoiding orthodontic relapse.
Straight Teeth May Be Healthier
Straight teeth and an even bite may reduce enamel wear, which contributes to better oral health. Enamel wear may promote cavities, infections and even tooth breakage. Additionally, straight teeth may be easier to clean because there are fewer nooks for bacteria to hide.
