No one would argue that a straight smile is certainly more beautiful than a misaligned one, but did you know that having straight, even teeth can actually improve your oral health? Straight teeth are easier to care for because brushing and flossing is more straightforward. People who love the way their smile looks also tend to be more diligent about regular brushing and flossing. They may also be more apt to visit their 57301 dentist regularly for preventive exams and cleanings.

Orthodontics in Mitchell, SD

Many adults do not relish the idea of having traditional braces; a mouth full of metal wires and brackets can be difficult to fit into the adult lifestyle. We are happy to offer Invisalign at our Huron, SD dental office.

Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to gently move the teeth into the proper position. You will get several aligners at one appointment, swapping them out at intervals as recommended by your dentist at Dental Health Partners. Over time, usually anywhere from six to 18 months, your teeth will gradually move into the desired position.

The discreet plastic aligners are virtually invisible, so most people will be unaware you are undergoing orthodontic treatment. You remove the aligners for eating and cleaning your teeth, which means you can eat your favorite foods and easily clean your teeth afterward.

Compliance is crucial, however, and you must wear the aligners for at least 22 hours each day if you are going to be able to straighten your smile the way you envisioned.
