Reasons for teeth straightening:
- Your "bite". Because malocclusion can cause problems with eating
or even speech, teeth straightening may be used to align teeth and improve
- Tooth support. Orthodontics reposition the teeth above and below the gum
line. A strong root foundation helps create a strong tooth.
- Appearance. The esthetic appeal of a straight smile is one of the primary
reasons many teens and adults undergo orthodontic treatment.
- Oral hygiene. Straight, well-aligned teeth provide fewer "nooks &
crannies" for cavities to develop and for plaque and tartar to build
up. Brushing and flossing is effective and oral hygiene is easier to maintain.

- Invisalign aligners are practically clear. No one may even notice that you're
wearing them; making Invisalign a seamless fit with your lifestyle and day-to-day
interactions with others.
- Invisalign is removable. Unlike braces, you have the flexibility to eat
and drink what you want during treatment by simply removing the aligners.
And you can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would
to maintain fresh breath and good oral hygiene.
- Unlike braces, there are no metal brackets or wires with the Invisalign
system that could cause irritation to your mouth. The treatment may require
building small temporary acrylic attachments on the sides of some teeth to
allow for better tooth movement. Plus, since your office visits during treatment
don't involve metal or wire adjustments, you'll likely spend less time in
Dr. Dahlkemper's chair!
- And, finally, Invisalign allows you to view your virtual results and treatment
plan before you start treatment, so you can see how your straight teeth will
look after your treatment is complete. Modifications in the results can be
made even before treatment begins.
