Why are straight teeth important?
- Posted on: Jun 15 2021
Orthodontic treatment has been used for decades in helping patients improve the alignment of their teeth. While many patients picture metal brackets and wire braces, there are continued advances that allow patients other ways to improve the appearance of their smile, including that of Invisalign. Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear aligners to achieve results, allowing patients to feel confident from start to finish.
Straightening the smile is more than just achieving a more beautiful and attractive look. Below are some of the other benefits of why patients choose to straighten their smiles with Invisalign, offered at the downtown Montreal practice of Dr. Lenny Slepchik:
- Reduced risk of gum disease. Invisalign aligner trays are removable by the patient, making it easier to brush and floss as they normally do. Patients don’t have to work around brackets and wires and therefore, will have improved oral health and wellness.
- Fewer cavities. When teeth are crowded, crooked, or spaced, there are many areas of the smile where food particles can become trapped and plaque can develop. With straighter teeth, it is easier to care for the teeth and reduce areas for cavities to occur.
- Less headaches and TMJ problems. Patients diagnosed with TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder) and bruxism (clenching and grinding) may find that they deal with chronic headaches. When the upper and lower teeth are aligned with a proper bite, these issues often resolve themselves.
- Cost. Many patients avoid asking about braces because they fear the high cost of treatment. However, many patients find that Invisalign for straightening the smile is not only affordable, btu can help reduce the need for other expensive restorative procedures in the future.
