Will Invisalign® Aligners Correct Severe Cases of Crooked Teeth?
Invisalign® is an exciting orthodontic treatment solution that uses removable aligners to help straighten your teeth in less time and discomfort than traditional braces. Invisalign aligners can address many problems, such as gaps between the teeth, overcrowded teeth, and various issues that can make your teeth appear crooked. During your consultation with our dentists at Made Ya Smile of The Woodlands, TX, we can review the state of your teeth and determine a suitable Invisalign treatment plan that can give you the smile you deserve.
You can still benefit from Invisalign aligners even if you have severely crooked teeth. The Invisalign treatment is ideal for cases where your teeth are improperly rotated or are too close to or apart from each other. The timing necessary for resolving severely crooked teeth may take longer than what most people may expect when using Invisalign, but it is still less time and pain when compared to traditional braces.
How does the Invisalign treatment work?
Our dental experts will start the process with a three-dimensional scan of your teeth, so we can analyze and determine the proper aligner treatment necessary based on your desired results. For crooked teeth, we can design a series of clear plastic aligners that will apply gentle pressure to your teeth to move them to the correct spots. This includes separating teeth too close to each other or rotating a tooth into the proper position.
You’ll need to wear the aligners throughout most of the day, although you can remove them for eating and doing other things. You’ll still be able to brush and floss as normal; eat and drink what you want; and continue any normal activities without worrying about injuring the inside of your mouth. You can also schedule visits with us at Made Ya Smile every four to six weeks so we can monitor your progress and adjust the treatment process accordingly.
How long does it take to fix severely crooked teeth?
Patients with severely crooked teeth may need up to two years of Invisalign treatment to resolve their issues. While some minor conditions could be treated in about twelve to eighteen months, patients whose teeth require extra help will need more time to get the results they deserve. While your results will still vary surrounding how long you wear your aligners, you’ll find that the Invisalign treatment, with SmartTrack material, is a more predictable, convenient, and comfortable option over traditional braces. Plus, there is no sharp and irritating equipment to mess with, just clear, plastic aligners.
