I had braces as a child, but my teeth have moved. Can Invisalign help?
At Tysons Dentistry, we have used Invisalign to help a number of patients who have experienced some degree of relapse after treatment with traditional braces. This most frequently occurs with older patients who had braces as a child.
It is natural for teeth to move and shift slightly. In fact, this movement is happening all the time, and can cause teeth to move out of their proper alignment years after orthodontic treatment.
Correcting crooked teeth at any age is important because it can affect your dental bite, which can lead to a variety of other problems including teeth grinding and clenching. Teeth that are overcrowded can also make oral hygiene difficult, potentially leading to cavities and even gum disease.
The Power Of Invisalign
Invisalign clear braces allow us to discreetly and effectively correct these alignment issues, so you don’t have to worry about another round of treatment with wire and bracket braces. The amount of time it will take to return your teeth is different for each person. Once Dr. Sanati and Dr. Shahram have had a chance to review your case, we can give you a good idea of how long treatment will take.
If you’ve experienced a relapse after traditional braces, please don’t hesitate to give us a call. We will be happy to arrange a convenient consultation to discuss your options.
