Do more than improve your smile line with Invisalign treatment in Michigan


By
Teeth that are overcrowded, spaced too far apart, and generally misaligned are often viewed as a cosmetic problem. The condition of our teeth is of vital importance to how we feel about ourselves, since this feature has a central location on the face. The effects of a crooked smile are felt by people of all ages –youngsters amongst their classmates, and well-educated, highly trained adults facing colleagues, superiors, and business clients.

We all deserve to feel self-assured about the image we portray. Improving upon what you share with the world can be as easy as correcting misalignment.

Beyond the immense boost in confidence that comes with smile transformation, straightening the teeth with Invisalign treatment from Michigan dentist Dr. Bernstein carries other significant benefits.

Misalignment and oral health

Teeth and gums are kept in their healthiest condition through daily brushing and flossing. But when teeth are misaligned, proper cleaning becomes a challenge. Brushing teeth that are crowded together or overlapping is largely unsuccessful because a portion of each tooth surface is inaccessible. Properly addressing oral hygiene in the instance of overcrowding takes ample time and attention. Even then, there are spots that will be missed.

When teeth are not adequately brushed and flossed, accumulation of plaque occurs more easily. Plaque, a sticky substance that adheres to teeth, is a combination of tiny food particles, saliva, and bacteria. Plaque gives bacteria a prime living environment, from which they eat away at tooth enamel and gum tissue. Bacteria are ever active, and continue to reign until they are effectively handled with specialized treatment.

Crooked, overlapping teeth make it difficult to remove bacteria and plaque. Invisalign is a method of straightening teeth that is effective and also appealing to patients.

Misalignment and oral structure

We may not readily make the connection between misaligned bite and chronic pain. Our teeth are only one part of the jaw structure. They are immediately connected to the muscles, ligaments, and bones in the face, head, and neck. Misaligned teeth are more than cosmetically distressing. They may actually pose structural problems such as TMJ disorder, resulting in chronic headaches, facial pain, and ear problems.
