Teeth straightening with Invisalign Treatment

Dr. Loc Tong and Dr. Angela Rasmussen of Gentle Dentistry in Tampa, Florida, believe that everyone deserves a beautiful smile, including those who have natural misalignment of their teeth. Whether teeth have gaps, are rotated or are in the wrong position, a patient may find themselves insecure when they smile. They also may be finding themselves avoiding the conversation of straightening the smile altogether for fear of being told they need traditional braces. Instead, our team is pleased to offer an alternative teeth straightening option known as Invisalign.

What is Invisalign?

The dentists in our practice describe Invisalign as almost invisible (hence “Invisalign”) clear tray therapy that gently repositions the teeth with trays instead of metal brackets and wires.

Why address misalignment?

Misaligned teeth, better known as “malocclusion,” can impact patients in more than just the smile’s appearance. Below are a few ways how malocclusion can affect an individual’s oral health:

  • Wear, and trauma can occur due to misaligned teeth and poor bite alignment causing a need for more dental treatment if cracks and cavities develop.
  • Straighter teeth are easier to keep clean and free from periodontal (gum) disease and cavities.
  • Teeth that are correctly positioned allow for more effective brushing and flossing.

Am I a candidate for Invisalign?

Many patients who hear of this treatment have questions for their dentist, such as whether they can benefit from Invisalign orthodontics. The best candidates are those with mild to moderate crowding and misalignment. Patients should also be free from periodontal (gum) disease and cavities to be considered for Invisalign treatment. Even if you have these concerns, our team of professionals can help you rebuild the healthy foundation you need to move teeth. An evaluation with our team is the best way to find out more about candidacy.
