You may have noticed, even if you’ve had braces at some point in your life, that your teeth are slowly creeping out of alignment. This is caused malocclusion and may cause other dental problems in your mouth like overcrowded teeth, unevenly spaced teeth, or an abnormal bite pattern. In addition, crooked teeth can make proper cleaning with floss difficult, increase your risk for gum disease, cause bad breath, increase general wear and tear on your teeth, put you more at risk for tooth injury.

At Lowes Island Dentistry, Dr. Ansari can help align or realign your teeth using Invisalign®.

What is Invisalign®?

Chances are you’ve heard of Invisalign®, as its a very popular and trusted type of tooth alignment that has great results without the large financial and time investment of braces. Invisalign® gently moves your teeth into position with a patented clear aligner printed on a 3D printer and sold to over 5.5 million people the world over. Invisalign® treatments are now up to two times faster than they have been in the past.

What are the Benefits of Invisalign®?

The benefits of Invisalign® over braces include:

  • An invisible appearance (others won’t see them)
  • More mouth and jaw comfort
  • Gentle tooth gliding in multiple directions (braces can only use one direction)
  • Removability for eating, drinking, and caring for your gums and teeth
  • Faster results than braces (only 12 months on average)
  • No bracket mountings or glue to remove from tooth surfaces after treatment
