Problems with Crowded Teeth

If you are living with crowded teeth, you may already notice the many problems that can occur as a result of your teeth being too close together. The inability to brush and floss effectively as well as the continuous struggle to remove lodged food can result in:

  • Tooth decay
  • Gum disease
  • Cavities
  • A misaligned bite

Avoiding necessary treatment for too long can lead to more timely and costly dental procedures. Dr. Kogan and Dr. Romano, however, can help you remedy this problem with the help of Invisalign clear aligners.

How Can Invisalign Help Treat Crowded Teeth?

Invisalign uses clear, plastic aligners made from SmartTrack technology. This ensures your trays fit snugly and are comfortable to wear throughout treatment. You will be expected to wear your aligners 20-22 hours each day for 1-2 weeks at a time. After you’ve completed one set, you will move on to the next one in the series until you have finished all your trays.

The aligners place an appropriate amount of pressure on your teeth, allowing them to shift accordingly and create the necessary space for a healthier, more aesthetically pleasing smile. Throughout treatment, you will be expected to keep your regular follow-up appointments with our team to ensure your teeth are moving as they should.

Although every patient is different and timelines can vary, the average duration for Invisalign treatment is 12-18 months. This not only allows you to enjoy a more flexible and discreet form of orthodontics, but it also means that you can expect a healthier smile in less time than if you were to choose traditional metal braces, which can take 2-3 years.
