Not only do misaligned teeth detract from the beauty of your smile, but they also make it difficult for you to properly brush and floss. Crowded teeth can also put you at an increased risk for gum disease and subsequent complications like heart conditions that can occur when gum disease goes untreated.
Fine Dentistry is here to help improve your oral health and the appearance of your smile with Invisalign in San Diego. We are certified providers of these modern, clear braces, and can help you comfortably achieve the smile you want.
Invisalign® is a system of thermoplastic aligners that you wear over your teeth like a mouth guard. The aligners are specially designed to apply corrective pressure to teeth in order to shift their position toward ideal alignment. During your course of treatment, you’ll be given a series of trays to move your teeth gently over time, and will change out aligners every two weeks to move your treatment forward.
Invisalign® can be used to correct many different orthodontic problems, including:
• Overcrowded teeth
• Crooked teeth
• Gaps and spaces between the teeth
• Improper bites, including overbites, underbites and crossbites
Invisalign® aligners are clear and almost completely invisible when in place. They do not detract from your appearance like metal braces — most people won’t even know that you are wearing these appliances. When it comes time to eat or brush, you can remove the aligners.
These invisible trays make for a far more convenient daily routine than metal braces – no special floss threaders or picks needed. As the aligners are intended to be removed for eating and drinking, you also don’t have to worry about damaging any bonded dental appliances with carbonated drinks or chewy and sticky foods.
The best way to learn more about the Invisalign® system is to schedule an appointment with Dr. Sabine A. Purps at Fine Dentistry in Old Town San Diego. Dr. Purps has been a certified Invisalign® provider for 8 years and can give provide comprehensive examinations to determine if these clear braces are right for you. If you decide to seek treatment, we can make impressions of your smile and have your aligners ready in just a few weeks. Dr. Purps takes time to explain how to use the trays and care for your smile during treatment to ensure best results.
Many people living with crooked or misaligned teeth have resigned themselves to living with these problems because they don’t want to wear metal braces. With Invisalign®, patients get access to nearly invisible orthodontics that don’t interfere with their everyday lives.
