Orthodontic Work Can Offer Oral Health Improvements

When you start to think about life with straight teeth, you may be excited to think about how your smile can improve thanks to your orthodontic adjustment. If this is what has you most interested in an adjustment, this is certainly understandable! Our Rochester, MN dental practice is excited to help patients feel great about the way they look. With that said, an orthodontic adjustment can do more than just improve how you look – it can also help you improve your bite function, and avoid problems like tooth decay and gum disease. If you want to enjoy the benefits of orthodontic work, while avoiding the concerns people often have with wearing metal braces, we can talk to you about correcting your alignment flaws with Invisalign!

How Straightening Your Teeth Can Benefit Your Oral Health

You may have questions about Invisalign, and how it can improve your oral health and appearance. People are sometimes unaware of how their adjustment can help them prevent problems with their bite function, and with oral health conditions. What you should know is that when teeth are poorly aligned, it can affect the way your upper and lower teeth meet when you bite down. An awkward bite can create stress on your jaw, and cause chronic discomfort. Overlapping teeth create additional concerns with cavities and gum disease because they can be more difficult to fully clean. As a consequence, you can have a more difficult time preventing buildups of plaque and tartar.

Relying On Invisalign Aligners For Your Orthodontic Adjustment

When you qualify for orthodontic adjustment with Invisalign, you can look forward to all the benefits of an adjustment without having to put up with metal braces. One big difference between Invisalign and bracket-and-wire appliances is in the way they look. Because they are made with a clear plastic material, Invisalign appliances tend to go unnoticed when they are in place. This can make you more comfortable in both professional and social atmospheres. You can also be glad to know that your aligner can be removed at any time when it might be intrusive, such as when you eat, or want to clean your teeth.

We Can Make A Modern Approach To Orthodontic Work Available To You

Your experience with orthodontic work at our practice can be more pleasant than you think possible. If you have had orthodontic work in the past, you may be familiar with the unpleasant practice of biting into plaster material to create a bite mold. This is NOT something you have to do to create impressions at our practice, as we use an iTero digital scanner to create digital impressions. If you are concerned about the time it will take to adjust your teeth, we can talk to you about using Propel Orthodontic technology to make sure your adjustment progresses more quickly!
