Crooked or overcrowded teeth can affect more than just your confidence. Over time, your enamel can wear down much faster than normal, increasing your risk of damage and decay. Not being able to clean or chew properly also exacerbates the situation. Orthodontics and Invisalign treatments at Canyon Creek Dental Clinic can straighten your teeth and reverse these issues while giving you a more beautiful smile.
Traditional metal braces are usually the first image that comes to mind when you think about orthodontics. They work by using a system of small metal brackets glued to the teeth with a metal wire running through each. As your treatment progresses, your dentist will tighten the wire bit by bit. This will pull your teeth gradually into alignment.
Invisalign Clear Aligners
This beautiful alternative to metal braces feels much more comfortable for the wearer, is virtually invisible, and typically takes a shorter amount of time to finish treatment. A custom appliance is made out of special hardened resin to fit your teeth while slightly pushing them into straighter alignment. After a couple of weeks you will have a new appliance made which will keep pressing your teeth into a straighter alignment until treatment is complete. It’s as simple as that!
You only need to wear them 20 hours a day. This allows you to take them out for cleaning, brushing your teeth, or taking photos.
