If you've already had braces to correct your tooth alignment, but your teeth have shifted back out of place, chances are that you don't want to visit your Prior Lake dentist to get braces once again. The good news is you probably don't have to. Whether your teeth have shifted slightly, significantly or not at all, Invisalign may be just what you need to keep your teeth exactly where they belong.
Here are three reasons you might want to consider visiting Michael Babcock, DDS or Tom Morgan, DDS at Babcock & Morgan Family Dental for Invisalign after you've already had braces.
1. Invisalign Can Correct Relapses
If you've neglected to wear your retainer and your teeth have shifted, Invisalign can move them back where they belong. In fact, Invisalign is designed specifically for the type of minor adjustments that often need to be made once teeth begin shifting out of place.
2. It Can Also Prevent Relapses
If your teeth haven't yet shifted or if you've corrected the shifting and you'd like to keep it corrected, Invisalign can help with that too. Because Invisalign covers your entire tooth, it does an excellent job holding your teeth exactly where they are supposed to be.
3. Invisalign is Practically Invisible
One of the main reasons why Prior Lake residents love the Invisalign aligners they get from their dentists is because, unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners are practically invisible. Wear them to work, school, on a date or in a meeting; no one has to know but you.
Of course, Invisalign isn't right for everyone. If you grind your teeth, can't commit to wearing your aligners for the recommended time, frequently forget where you left your aligners or need the most cost-effective option possible, Invisalign aligners may not be the right choice for you. Only your dentist at Babcock & Morgan Family Dental in Prior Lake can help you decide for sure, however.
You've already spent several months and hundreds or even thousands of dollars to correct your tooth alignment. Don't let that time and money go to waste. Speak to your dentist at Babcock & Morgan Family Dental in Prior Lake to find out if Invisalign aligners are right for you.
