Am I too old to worry about my crooked teeth?

Tuesday, April 22, 2014
Teeth that are not aligned properly in your mouth is not just cosmetically unsightly, but it creates what dentists call "malocclusion." Left untreated, malocclusion can lead to periodontal disease and create abnormal amounts of stress on teeth and jaws, which leads to premature wear.

Invisalign before and after

If any dental technology development deserves to be called revolutionary, it is Invisalign. In many cases, it is the highly desirable alternative to unsightly and uncomfortable metal braces and wires.


Working together using interactive software with Invisalign, Dr. Zagami and Dr. Courey will simulate the ideal position your teeth should be in to produce a healthy bite and beautiful smile. The software-generated models will then generate a series of precise steps to move your teeth in a safe and effective manner. The Invisalign system will then fabricate a series of clear plastic aligner trays that are so precise and unobtrusive that, when you are wearing them, they are essentially invisible to others.

Each aligner tray is designed to perform a highly controlled, precise movement so that teeth are moved with little or no pain in a gradual and effective manner. All of this is accomplished with the virtually invisible Invisalign trays at regular intervals — until the teeth are in their final position. They are both comfortable (no metal brackets or wires) and removable. And unlike traditional braces there are no restrictions on what you eat during treatment or the inconvenience of wearing noticeable brackets on your teeth. It is truly is the "invisible way" to move your teeth and create the smile you deserve.

Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment for Adults

1. Healthier Teeth
Properly aligned teeth are easier to brush and floss than crowded or crooked teeth. Properly positioned teeth can help gums "fit" more tightly around them, which may lead to better periodontal he

2. Improved Hygiene
With good oral hygiene, the chances of having plaque retention, tooth decay, and periodontal disease can be reduced.

3. Decreased Risk of Abnormal Wear and Trauma
Properly aligned teeth also reduce the risk of expensive procedures required to repair the effects of abnormal force, such as tooth chipping, breaking, or wear; and can be less stressful on the supporting jaw bone and joints.
