Overcrowding in the mouth occurs when there is not enough room in the jaw to hold all the teeth. As a result, the teeth become crooked and grow in out of place. There are numerous aesthetic disadvantages to this condition, but there are also various health concerns. Overcrowded teeth can be difficult to clean because you cannot reach every area of the tooth with your toothbrush. This can lead to an accumulation of plaque, which causes tooth decay. Talk to your dentist about getting Invisalign for tooth crowding before this condition gets too out of hand.
You will receive a customized treatment plan designed specifically to deal with your malocclusion. As opposed to other orthodontic treatments, Invisalign uses smooth, clear aligners that are practically invisible to straighten your teeth. All patients will enjoy the fact that the aligners can be taken out during meals, so you can continue to enjoy all your favorite foods.
Invisalign will require about one to two years to straighten your teeth, about the same length of time as other treatments. But you will feel much more confident while you are going through the treatment since you do not have to worry about your aligners drawing unwanted attention.
