There are more reasons to desire straight teeth than just having an appealing smile. Teeth are easier to keep clean when they are properly aligned and have regular dental care services. That is important when you consider the alternative of plaque buildup in hard-to-clean places. Crooked teeth are susceptible to the tartar buildup that can cause gum disease. Speech can be impacted by misaligned teeth. Crooked teeth can also be a source of pain if you are biting your cheeks or tongue as a result. Problems with chewing your food properly are also related to poorly aligned teeth. Then, of course, there is the issue of appearance.
Lane Family Dental can help get your teeth in the proper alignment without using metal wires and brackets. Invisalign offers a discreet alternative to traditional braces; so discreet that your friends will hardly realize your teeth are being straightened.
Through a series of clear plastic aligners that are worn a couple of weeks at a time, your teeth are gently moved into place. The removable aligners allow you to eat your regular foods and maintain your oral hygiene routine. Merely take out the aligners when eating, brushing, or flossing and put them back in when you are finished.
