If you have endured a crooked or misaligned smile and are ready to make a change, Wagner Dental has the solution you have been seeking – Invisalign®. When undergoing orthodontic treatment to straighten teeth, we always pay close attention to Smile Esthetics. Focusing on Smile Esthetics means focusing on straight teeth in a natural-looking way, placing your teeth in the best way in relation to your smile.
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is a comfortable way to correct many issues with the way teeth are aligned. With this nearly invisible technology, most people won’t even realize you are correcting your teeth. In the end, you are able to smile brighter and bigger with your newly straightened teeth.
What issues can Invisalign® correct?
- Gapped teeth
- Open bite
- Crowded teeth
“If you are thinking about Invisalign, look no further than Dr. Nelson and his amazing assistant, Angela. As a youth, I had braces and recently needed some correction. My teeth have never looked better and Dr. Nelson fixed me up in a matter of months with Invisalign. Also, my entire family has been going to Wagner Dental since we moved to Las Vegas. Everyone is extremely impressed with their excellent care. This is the best practice that we’ve gone to and their entire staff are also friendly and exceptional.”
How does Invisalign® work?
The first step in the process is to come in for a consult at Wagner Dental. If Invisalign® is a good option, you will have X-rays, photos, and impressions of your teeth taken in order to develop a custom treatment plan.
You will have a series of custom clear aligners made which you will wear 22-24 hours a day. Every few weeks you will receive a new aligner that will slowly and safely move your teeth into proper position. Aligners are clear and are barely noticeable. They can also be removed for eating and brushing.
Health benefits of straightening teeth with Invisalign®
There are many benefits to straightening ones smile. Most think that orthodontics is simply a cosmetic solution; however the benefits of correcting bite issues go far beyond aesthetics.
If you are noticing symptoms of gum disease like swollen, red, and bleeding gums, it may be a result of your teeth being overcrowded or it may be due to gaps between your teeth.
When teeth are not straight, the gums surrounding the teeth may be more difficult to keep clean and this can lead to periodontal issues. When teeth are aligned, the gums fit better around the teeth providing the best natural defense against infection.
Other health concerns that may be a result of crooked or misaligned teeth include improper bite, speaking or chewing difficulty, increased wear on the tooth enamel as well as jaw issues.
Choosing to straighten your smile will not only give you a beautiful straight smile, but will also improve your overall oral health.
If you are worried about the potential cost of teeth straightening, we want you to know that we are proud to offer our patients financing options so you don’t have to choose between your other responsibilities and your dental health.
