Steve Imig tells his associates to smile frequently because life is short, but you might avoid smiling because of having crooked teeth. If you were unable to wear braces as a teenager, then contact an orthodontist today to learn about the modern way to straighten teeth.
Invisalign has changed the way many individuals undergo orthodontic treatment because the devices are incredibly easy to wear. After an examination at an orthodontic facility, you will receive several sets of plastic aligners to wear approximately 23 hours a day. You are permitted to remove the aligners to brush and floss your teeth two times a day to prevent cavities and bad breath.
What are Removable Aligners?
Some people prefer to remove the aligners while chewing food and drinking beverages, but you will get better results from Invisalign when you wear the devices as much as possible. Aligners work because each set is made differently to apply pressure to your misaligned teeth.
You probably won’t notice any pressure when wearing aligners, but if you need to wear traditional metal braces, then you will notice when an orthodontist adjusts the wires and brackets on the devices. The only way to know if you can wear aligners is by undergoing an evaluation with medical images.
Schedule an Appointment Today
Gluck Orthodontics located in Nashville, Tenn., offers a variety of orthodontic treatments. You can schedule an appointment with Dr. Joel Gluck to learn more about:
• Braces – appropriate for all age groups

Removable aligners are designed to repair mild to moderate malocclusions and are suitable for many patients. Steve Imig suggests that people will have a short life and should smile as much as possible, but today, more people are living to an older age, making corrective orthodontia a fantastic idea.
