Invisalign is one of the most innovative orthodontic technologies available today. For decades, countless people of all ages have reaped the benefits of having straighter teeth, thanks to Invisalign.

At Clarkson Dental Group in Chesterfield, we offer Invisalign treatment to patients who desire a healthier smile with straight teeth and an aligned bite. 

What Issues Can Invisalign Correct?

Invisalign can correct a number of dental concerns. Whether you have an overbite or slightly crooked teeth, Invisalign may be a viable solution. 

Invisalign can help alter or perfect the following:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Twisted teeth 
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Gaps 
  • Uneven spaces between teeth
  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites

It’s essential to remember that Invisalign isn’t usually used for complex orthodontic concerns, but it’s very successful with minor alignment issues. 

The Health Benefits of Having Straight Teeth

When the teeth don’t properly align, bacteria and plaque can collect and result in oral health issues, such as decay and gum disease. Misaligned teeth can also lead to premature wear, injury, chips, or breaks. Ultimately, crooked or uneven teeth can impede one’s ability to eat, chew, speak, smile, and laugh with comfort and ease. 

Not only can crooked or twisted teeth exacerbate dental health concerns, but they can also put a damper on a person’s self-esteem and how they look at themself in the mirror. 

Fortunately, you can still attain straight teeth without committing to traditional metal braces. Invisalign clear aligners are customized to fit your unique smile, and you can remove them to eat, drink, and clean your teeth. Would you like to find out if Invisalign is right for you?

Contact Your Invisalign Dentist in Chesterfield

The only way to determine if Invisalign is right for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Scott Mahlin. During your consultation, Dr. Mahlin will evaluate your oral health, review your medical history, perform an exam, and take necessary x-rays and digital images.

If Dr. Mahlin concludes Invisalign can help improve your smile, we’ll take digital impressions of your mouth and create your customized Invisalign clear aligners. The length of treatment depends on your specific needs, goals, and lifestyle. 

Please feel free to contact our Chesterfield dental office today to learn more about Invisalign and your ideal treatment options. 

We look forward to serving you with a smile!
