Perfectly Clear: Invisalign Clear Braces

Invisalign clear braces are an increasingly popular option in orthodontics. They produce excellent results, but are so discreet that some people call them invisible. Freedom Village Dental in Jacksonville offers Invisalign clear braces to teenage and adult patients alike.

Unlike traditional metal braces, Inviaslign clear braces have no wires, brackets or rubber bands. They are so subtle that people standing just a few feet away from you may not realize you’re wearing them.

They look a lot like an athlete’s mouth guard. The proper term for such braces is “aligner.” They are made of clear plastic and are worn over your teeth to gradually bring them into alignment.

One of the things that people like best about Invisalign clear braces is that they are removable. You can take them out at mealtime, and when you brush your teeth at night. You should wear them while you sleep, however. For the best results it’s recommended they be worn for at least twenty-two hours each day.

Invisalign clear braces are a great choice for adults who want to straighten their teeth, but don’t want to wear traditional braces at work. They are not, however, for everyone. They are not good for patients who, for example, have severely rotated teeth.

Is Malocclusion Causing Your Headache?

Jacksonville Headache ReliefDo you suffer from chronic headaches? Have you tried painkillers and chiropractic adjustment? Perhaps the cause is not stress-induced tension or spine alignment. Maybe the culprit is right under your nose. Bite misalignment or malocclusion is a fairly common impairment, yet often goes undetected. It can be corrected with Invisalign clear braces from Freedom Village Dental in Jackson.

Nature intended the front teeth to fit slightly forward from the lower teeth. With a perfect bite, the molars fit together like precision gears. When there is bite misalignment, the upper arch may close too far back or the lower teeth may close off-center horizontally.

Malocclusion can cause headaches, tooth loosening, tooth fracture, and in extreme cases, difficulty chewing, speaking, or breathing.

Braces are an effective solution for many bite issues. Braces not only move teeth, they can also correct the position and function of the joints, muscles, and bones in the jaw. In very rare cases of extreme malocclusion, jaw surgery may be required.

If you haven’t been able to discover the cause of your headaches, talk to your dentist. If you don’t have a dentist and live in the Jacksonville area, we invite you to visit Freedom Village Dental. We offer technologically-advanced dentistry with a personal touch.

During your exam, we will analyze your bite to see if it may be contributing to or causing your headaches. If that’s the case, we will develop a treatment plan that could include clear braces from Invisalign. Schedule a consultation with us today.
