Did you know that straight teeth that fit together well are the healthiest teeth? The advantages of straight teeth go much further than just a confident smile. This fact that has been endorsed by the American Dental Association: straight teeth can actually significantly affect your overall health, not just your dental health. Teeth that fit together properly are easier to clean, less likely to decay or fracture, and are less prone to periodontal (gum) disease.
Additionally, periodontal disease has even been linked to heart disease. So doesn’t a healthier mouth make sense? Aside from the link in periodontal disease and heart disease, unhealthy teeth such as broken or decayed teeth can also cause digestive problems. Crowded, decayed, and fractured teeth can also lead to the need for extensive dental treatment, such as crown, bridges, root canal, and even loss of teeth.
Memorial Dentists care about our patients as a whole person, not just their oral health. Therefore, we are introducing all of our patients to Invisalign Orthodontics offered here in our office. Invisalign is not traditional braces (wires and brackets); they are revolutionary. Invisalign are a series of clear plastic aligners, which straighten your teeth gradually. Invisalign are nearly invisible, smooth, and comfortable to wear. Therefore, no more metal mouth. Invisalign allows you to eat without restrictions then allows you to brush and floss normally because they are removable. Invisalign is also less expensive and takes much less time to complete treatment than traditional braces. Invisalign requires fewer appointments— approximately one appointment about every six weeks, and treatment is commonly completed in about a year.
Parents have made orthodontic treatment a top priority for their children, however, today one out of every five patients in orthodontics is over 21 years old. You deserve a better smile, healthier mouth and body, and a more self-confident you. Contact us today for your free evaluation!
