My teeth moved after I stopped wearing braces. Now What? Relapse is a very common problem for most people after using regular wires and braces. After braces, most people think that their teeth should and will stay straight forever. This is a common misinterpretation. If a patient does not wear their retainer every night, slowly the teeth will shift back to their original positions. This is because teeth have PDL fibers and these fibers are ligaments which have memory of how the teeth were originally positioned.
You're in luck! There is a solution! Invisalign is the clear option you have been waiting! You can get a short 3-4 months of Invisalign to help correct the small movements that occurred and get that perfect smile back! The crowding, spaces opening, teeth moving into the wrong positions can be corrected and fixed by Dr. Yun and her orthodontic and cosmetic options. Invisalign does not have to only be for patients who have only had braces in the past. Dr. Yun can use Invisalign to correct all spacing, misalignment, flaring, spacing, crossbites, overbites, open bites, etc.
At Capital Dental Group, Dr. Kimberlie Yun understand the importance of straight teeth. Straighter teeth are more functional, and healthier meaning they are easier to clean and care for. They also give a better smile and help overall occlusion and function. Patients afterwards can receive whitening and can clean and floss like they originally do to keep up with their oral hygiene. This can be a limiting factor with braces, but invisalign is great for parties, functions, talks, speeches, weddings, etc.
Dr. Yun is specially trained to provide Invisalign (invisible braces) using clear trays to help move teeth into their correct position. This gives patients a beautiful straight smile, but also improves overall function and confidence tremendously.
Invisible braces also known as Invisalign can be a great option for relapse and patients who have had braces! But you do not have to have had braces in the past to be eligible to get invisalign treatment.
