Patients in Burlington, ON Discover the Versatility of Invisalign Treatment Offered by Respected Dentist
Your smile is one of your most distinguishing traits. It is one of the very first features many will notice about you, and it goes a long way in forming first impressions. Those in the Burlington, ON area who are suffering from misaligned teeth, overcrowded, or who have an overbite or underbite have found great success in the Invisalign invisible aligner system as provided by Dr. Thelam Nguyen at Tansley Woods Dentistry.
Correcting Your Over/Underbite
When it comes to Invisalign, many people think it is just a treatment for correcting misaligned teeth. That could not be further from the truth. Invisalign can correct several dental issues, including adjusting your overbite or underbite. Even if you have the straightest teeth of anybody you know, if you have an over/underbite, you could still face dental issues as well as discomfort.
Invisalign holds the advantage over traditional wire braces in that it does not require the use of rubber bands to hold your jaw in a specific alignment. Anyone who has gone through having braces will tell you this can be uncomfortable and incredibly noticeable by others. There is no hiding the fact you are undergoing orthodontic treatment. Invisalign can correct the bite using clear aligner trays, which apply pressure to the teeth to correct your alignment. And the best thing is that nobody ever has to know as the aligners are made of clear dental-grade plastic that is not noticeable by others.
Treating Crowded Teeth
Teeth that are overcrowded in your mouth is another area where Invisalign can help. Unlike braces, Invisalign offers the benefit of being affordable, invisible, and comfortable. To help with this process, your dentist will provide you with an expander that will discreetly work. This expander’s job is to push the roof of your mouth outward and offer more room for your teeth. As we have previously mentioned here, braces can do the same thing, just using unsightly metal and wires, which can be pretty uncomfortable.
