When it comes to misaligned teeth, patients can suffer from unresolved gum disease, chipping, bone loss and recession. Teeth out of place often need more extensive and costly dentistry as well. This is why it is important to address your malocclusion with your dentist. There is more than one way to straighten teeth, but not all of them offer the same kinds of benefits.
It is important to have a well-aligned bite, and Dr. Whitmore and his team can help you determine which is the most effective way to restore bite function and beauty to your smile.
Health Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign is a popular way to address malocclusion. Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to gently correct misaligned teeth without the use of wires and brackets. Many men and women prefer Invisalign over traditional braces because wires and brackets can be uncomfortable and unsightly.
Because Invisalign aligners can be removed, there is more freedom with what can be eaten. While traditional braces may prohibit certain foods, such as apples, Invisalign allows you to have a well-balanced diet throughout your treatment. You may also keep your normal routine of brushing and flossing regularly. This will prevent tooth decay and gum disease. These are unique health benefits when compared to other orthodontic options.
It can also take a fraction of the time to straighten teeth with Invisalign than with traditional braces, and this is something many patients find attractive. Whether you are trying to present your best self in social or business circles, a healthy and beautiful smile can go a long way to showing this.
