If you have crooked or misaligned teeth then it’s time to meet an orthodontist. A smile is as important for a person as to eat food daily. A smile with proper teeth brings self-confidence. Beyond cosmetic issue, misaligned teeth can bring problems like loss of tooth, improper digestion, gum disease, speech impairment and damages in the jaw line.
The right time to correct the dental issues is during our childhood, but it is not necessary as correcting such issues has no time or age bar. Metal wires and braces have always been an embarrassment for adults. Invisalign is an advanced technology where transparent trays are fixed to straighten your teeth. Invisalign in Oregon, Portland is famous for its advance 3D computer technology, where the orthodontist gives proper time to each patient making their treatment comfortable.
Invisalign not only cures problems like misalignment or crooked teeth, but it is also helpful in problems like
- Cross bites
- Under bites
- Open bites
- Overcrowded mouth
It can be tried at any age, as it is made of plastic and it does not damage your jaws or makes it painful. Moreover, unlike other metal braces, you don’t need to prevent it from staining your teeth. You can take away the trays after every 22 hours in a day so that leaves you with 2 hours in which you eat drink and clean your braces.
Keeping your mouth healthy is vital at any age. The biggest problem with older patients is gum disease due to gaps and overlaps and also tooth loss due to cavity and gum disease. Some of us don’t face any problem until we grow old. Slipping and sliding of teeth is major concern during old age. With the help of invisalign, you don’t need to bear those rough edges of metal braces in your mouth at the age of 50.
