Invisalign Sherman Oaks
Who needs braces?
Braces are corrective devices for teeth and gums. There are several reasons a person may need braces. You can determine if you need braces by doing a smile assessment. You should look for crooked, overlapping or overcrowded teeth or a bad bite. A bad bite is the result of Malocclusion, a discrepancy in the size of the upper and bottom jaws. You have an overbite when your upper jaw is bigger than the lower jaw. You have an underbite when your lower jaw is bigger. Misalignment of jaws is a major reason to inquire about Invisalign. A misaligned jaw can effect your ability to chew effectively, create jaw joint disorders, cause abnormal tooth wear and tooth fracture.
Invisalign vs. Metal Braces
For many years, people have avoided braces because of the altering of appearance caused by them and the restrictions associated with them. Now, people do not have to settle for the traditional braces. Invisalign is the solution for all the negatives associated with metal braces. Invisalign is a virtually invisible corrective orthodontic treatment which uses a series of clear, removable aligner trays. The teeth aligners gradually shift your teeth into place.
The aligners are comfortably molded to fit your teeth and will not irritate your cheeks and gums like metal braces would do. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign does not require a restricted diet. Brushing your teeth and flossing will not be hinder by Invisalign, because you can remove the aligners any time you want.
