Braces Are Not Just For Kids

Braces Are Not Just For Kids

Jun 07, 2016

Many patients do not want to experience the embarrassment or inconvenience of traditional metal braces. However, Millennium Smiles, serving Frisco and Little Elm, Texas, has alternatives to metal braces that will also straighten your teeth.

Crooked teeth may be more than just a cosmetic concern because they may have an impact on your overall dental health. Misaligned teeth can make it difficult to properly clean your teeth and can therefore increase your risk of cavities or gum disease. Crooked teeth may also affect a patient’s bite causing other dental health complications.

To avoid the appearance and discomfort of traditional metal braces, Millennium Smiles offers Invisalign clear aligners for adult patients who are looking to improve their smile. Invisalign is an orthodontic process that is able to straighten crooked teeth and fix under, over, or cross bite. An Invisalign treatment uses custom-made clear aligners that will gently shift your teeth into position.

There are many benefits to choosing Invisalign over traditional braces. A huge advantage of Invisalign is the ability to remove the clear aligners whenever you want, which allows you to brush and floss normally. This teeth straightening treatment also allows you to eat whatever foods you want, without any restrictions- a common complaint with metal braces. Another advantage of Invisalign is the virtually invisible, comfortable, soft aligners which will not irritate your tongue or cheeks.

Benefits of straighter teeth will extend further than a confident new smile. A straight smile will give you healthier gums because the gums fit more securely around the teeth. It also gives makes your mouth easier to clean and prevents plaque build up. A straight smile will prevent abnormal tooth wear and decrease your risk of tooth injury.

Your Frisco cosmetic dentist is an Invisalign provider and may recommend this as a cosmetic or restorative dental treatment. At Millennium Smiles, we will thoroughly examine your teeth and discuss the best options to realign your teeth and improve your overall dental health.

If your teeth are crooked or have concerns regarding your bite, schedule an appointment with your Frisco cosmetic dentist to discuss treatment options.
