Invisalign for Crowded Teeth – Torrance, CA
Correcting Your Crowded Smile
Generally, people perceive straight, perfectly spaced teeth as the most attractive setup for a smile. In contrast, crowded teeth—as well as gapped teeth—are orthodontic issues that cause more than just aesthetic problems. Not only can crowded teeth make your appearance less appealing, they can lead to problems with your oral health. Luckily, we at Blue Coast Dental Group provide treatment with Invisalign. That way you can achieve the results you’re looking for and give yourself the best possible chance of oral health success in the long term.
Why You Should Fix Crowded Teeth
When your teeth are too close together, they are much more difficult to keep clean. That’s because they create nooks and crannies that aren’t easily accessed in brushing and flossing, which allows plaque and bacteria to accumulate, eventually causing potentially serious problems like tooth decay or gum disease. Also, crowded teeth can interfere with your upper and lower teeth aligning with each other properly, wearing down your teeth’s enamel excessively in some parts. When you address your crowded teeth, you can have a significantly positive impact on your oral health.
How Invisalign Helps with Crowded Teeth
Through a series of alignment trays, Invisalign applies gentle pressure to guide your teeth gradually into ideal position. For more severe cases of crowded teeth, additional dental work, such as extraction or a special oral appliance, may be needed to ensure the mouth has sufficient space for all your teeth. Typically, these treatments take between one and two years to complete.
If your teeth are crowded, you don’t have to resort to metal brackets and wires to correct the problem. Our dentists can evaluate your teeth and determine whether you qualify for this advanced, convenient treatment option. Invisalign can make your teeth evenly and properly spaced so that you have a beautiful, healthy smile for many years to come.
