Correcting Problems With Malocclusion

While you can protect yourself against plaque and tartar buildup, cavities, and gum disease, your daily routine is hardly going to be effective against problems with poor dental alignment. People who are concerned about malocclusion can find that there is more than just metal braces available to them if they want to change the way they look. Our Rochester, MN dentist’s office can recommend that you undergo treatment with Invisalign aligners. These appliances make the process of straightening teeth easier as well as more discreet. In some cases, we can even discuss cosmetic dental work as an alternative to hide gaps and overlaps that embarrass you.

How Worried Should You Be About Smile Alignment Problems?

Poorly aligned teeth make many people unhappy with their appearance. An asymmetrical smile can be seen as less attractive, and visible gaps and overlaps between your teeth can attract attention that you would prefer not to receive. When you let problems with malocclusion go untreated, you can leave yourself vulnerable to more than just discomfort with your appearance. This is also a problem because it can affect your bite function, leading to problems with pain and sensitivity. Another concern is that your teeth may be harder to keep cleaning, which can hurt your oral health.

Planning Treatment With Invisalign Aligners

We offer treatment with Invisalign aligners to many people who have concerns about the way their teeth are aligned. These appliances are custom-made to fit securely and make the right adjustments to your smile, and they are also made with a clear material that can avoid detection. You will wear each aligner that you receive for a set period of time. While you should keep them in place for as long as possible to stay on track with your adjustment, you are free to take them out before eating or cleaning your teeth, making these daily habits easier to preserve.

Can Veneers Cover Smile Gaps Or Overlaps That Hurt The Way You Look?

For some individuals, we can discuss cosmetic services that will hide flaws caused by poor alignment. It may be possible for us to hide gaps and overlaps between your teeth with custom veneers. When in place, your veneers can also address dental damage and discoloration.
