Does crookedness undermine your cosmetic appearance? Sometimes introducing a bit of uniformity to misaligned teeth can boost oral health and even add some self-esteem. Many wonder how their teeth would look if they’d had braces at a younger age, but luckily patients of all ages can take advantage of the benefits of Invisalign right here in St. Paul! Our office offers clear orthodontics from ClearCorrect.
Why Should I Consider Straightening My Teeth?
In many cases, patients spend years with crooked teeth! Although not every smile requires straightening, uneven and crooked teeth can heighten the risk for cavities, decay, and gum disease. In some cases, crooked teeth can make cleaning with a toothbrush much more complicated and lead to bacteria and plaque buildup. Patients with straighter teeth can lower their risk for infections and other issues that affect the jaw and bite.
How Does Invisalign and ClearCorrect Work?
Those who partake in an Invisalign or ClearCorrect procedure receive a custom set of trays made specifically to fit their teeth. We take detailed scans and measurements to design the trays and achieve the desired outcome. Patients then wear their trays for a specified period (around 16-18 months). The series of clear plastic aligner trays gradually shift teeth into straighter alignment.
At Highgrove Dental Care, we assist our patients before, during, and after any procedure! Upon completion of your clear aligner treatment, we generally recommend the following tips:
- Wear a retainer to maintain results
- Regularly visit a dentist for checkup appointments
- Continue brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash regularly
