Can Invisalign Fix Relapsed Teeth?

Share Us On:



One of the major fears that people have when they decide to get braces (especially later in life) is that their teeth are going to relapse (i.e., revert back to their original positioning after the treatment). While this has been known to happen, and braces are never a 100% guarantee your teeth are going to remain fixed for the rest of your life, there are measures you can take if your teeth to begin to relapse that doesn’t require paying for another round of braces. People who come into the orthodontist because their teeth have relapsed after a round of braces often are not recommended to go for a new round of braces. What is often recommended is that they opt, instead, for Invisalign treatment. Invisalign is discreet and not as invasive as braces, allowing people to fix relapsed teeth in a way that is much less obvious than it…

Can I Get Invisalign After Braces?

Share Us On:



Traditional orthodontic braces are incredibly common, with most people getting them during adolescence. Since the bite is still developing during these years, it is more malleable, and braces generally have a better effect on younger patients. However, many adults who had braces when they were younger experience some shifting as time passes, with teeth perhaps becoming crooked or the bite becoming misaligned. If you want to correct your bite after having braces, but don’t want to go through the discomfort of having traditional braces again, Invisalign is actually a great option for straighter teeth, minus unsightly and uncomfortable metal braces!

Can Invisalign Reduce Headaches?

Share Us On:



Invisalign braces are a popular alternative to traditional braces. Invisalign braces are clear plastic retainers, completely custom made and meant to be worn for intervals at a time, which means they are fully removable. Invisalign can help correct a range of orthodontic issues such as tooth misalignment and unevenness. The fact that they are clear and can be removed when eating, drinking, flossing and brushing make them a better choice than conventional braces for many people. Since they are made of clear plastic, they are virtually invisible, making them an appealing choice for those who don’t want to wear metal braces. Most people who seek Invisalign treatment want to improve the appearance of their smile. But there are other benefits as well, other than just appearance. Correcting a misaligned bite can actually minimize headaches and muscle pain! A misaligned jaw isn’t able to function properly, and the jaw muscles can…
