More than just a source of embarrassment, crooked or overlapping teeth can also be a threat to your health. They can alter the stability and function of your bite, which could lead to problems later in life.
What Are Invisible Braces?
Davis Family Dental Care is a Bedford, TX Smart Moves® provider offering treatment with clear aligners for a wide range of dental health and cosmetic concerns. Smart Moves offers a discreet way to achieve a new, straighter smile for both adults and teens. This treatment will gently reposition your teeth in a little over a year, with little impact on your daily activities. Best of all, unlike traditional metal braces, Smart Moves are clear (hence the term “invisible braces”) and most people will never know you’re wearing them unless you tell them.
Patients can still enjoy their favorite foods and maintain good oral hygiene with Smart Move as they can be easily removed to eat and clean your teeth. The aligners are designed to be worn for about 22 hours a day without irritating the gums or sensitive areas of the mouth. They are custom-made for your mouth and will be swapped out for a newer set to adjust your teeth as they shift, becoming straighter.
Am I Too Old For Smart Moves?
Even though our teeth are in place by adulthood, that does not mean you are too old or it’s too late to consider orthodontic treatment to straighten teeth. Many adults have traditional braces or use Smart Moves or another invisible braces system with positive results. Smart Moves can be used to treat mild to moderate orthodontic issues, and it can also be used to address minor tooth movement after previous orthodontic treatment. Smart Moves also offers patients options to treat underbite, overbite, and tooth spacing concerns.
Why Should I Straighten My Teeth?
Crooked or overlapping teeth are more than just a cosmetic concern. Crooked teeth are more likely to be damaged, decay and cause you pain and other possible issues in the future. Serious overbite and underbite issues can also affect your oral health by destabilizing your bite, causing your teeth to wear unevenly. Plus, teeth that are aligned properly are easier to brush and floss, making your chances of plaque buildup and tooth decay drop.
