3 Reasons To Stop Putting Off Orthodontic Work

Why would you want to delay something that can improve your smile, and your oral health? With orthodontic treatment, you can fix frustrating problems that impact your appearance, while also lowering your risk for problems like TMJ dysfunction, tooth decay, and gum disease. Unfortunately, people in professional work environments and image-sensitive teenagers can be hesitant about orthodontic work, because they worry about life with conspicuous braces. You should know that your Rochester, MN dentist’s office can help you fix alignment flaws with Invisalign. These clear aligners can offer a more convenient, appearance-friendly approach to straightening crooked teeth.

1. You Can Rely On Invisalign To Make Adjustments Without Impacting Your Appearance

Your Invisalign aligners can be worn without attracting attention, thanks to their clear design. This can be a relief for people who are worried about how traditional braces could affect their appearance, and how people respond to them. While your aligners are removable, your ability to wear them discreetly means you can keep them on during important events, or in social settings. With that said, you can benefit from their being removable because you can remove them when you eat, or when you clean your teeth.

2. You Can Start Showing Off Real Smile Improvements

Simply put, your orthodontic work can give you more confidence in your smile. Teeth that seem out of place, or teeth that are too far apart, can interfere with your smile’s symmetry. Over time, each aligner you wear as part of your treatment will gradually move your teeth into better placement. If you want to see those results in less time, talk to your dentist about Propel. Propel can speed up the time it takes to adjust your smile, meaning you can be closer to the date when you have your fully corrected smile to show everyone.

3. Correcting Alignment Flaws Can Help You Avoid Oral Health Issues

Oral health troubles can be caused by many issues – a poor oral care routine, too much sugar, or a lack of professional dental treatment. You can also count crooked teeth as a potential problem for your oral health. When your teeth are crooked, your bite function can be negatively affected. People with a flawed bite can put more wear and tear on certain teeth, and they can experience TMJ issues. If you have teeth that are too close together, it may be hard for you to fully clean the area where they overlap, which can leave you vulnerable to cavities, and gum disease.
