Using Invisalign To Correct Tooth Movement Later In Life

Because people who have alignment issues often have treatment in their tween or teen years, it can feel odd to think about orthodontic treatment later in life. After all, the adjustment process is meant to make permanent corrections. What you might not realize is that you can be susceptible to tooth movement as an adult. This can happen to some people because their teeth start shifting back to their earlier positions. It can also happen when a person’s wisdom teeth become impacted, or due to problems with teeth grinding and friction. At our Katy, TX dental office, we can talk to our adult patients about using Invisalign aligners to correct tooth movement, and renew your confidence in your smile.

Tooth Movement Can Affect Your Smile As An Adult

While the causes of tooth movement can vary, the resulting change to your smile can seriously affect your confidence in the way you look. You can be bothered to see how movement makes your smile seem awkward, and less symmetrical. This can be especially frustrating because you can be caught off guard by the issue, and unsure of why it is happening.

Starting A Treatment Plan With Invisalign Aligners

Invisalign aligners make it possible to discreetly address problems with poor dental alignment. You can wear your appliances in different settings without feeling self-conscious, because they are difficult to notice when worn. They can be removed whenever you need to eat, or clean your teeth, so they can avoid causing problems for your daily life and preventive oral care regimen. While this adjustment can produce significant cosmetic changes on its own, you may want to make it part of a larger smile makeover, and follow it with additional work to address all concerns you have about your appearance.

We Can Help You Keep Your Smile In Good Shape Through The Years

During regular dental exams, we can talk to you about more than just tooth decay! You can be alerted to a problem with shifting teeth, or warned about signs of teeth grinding. Because these visits provide thorough cleanings in addition to your exams, they also make it easier for you to avoid future cavities, and limit your need for restorative dental work.
