Orthodontics For Better Oral Health?
Do you suffer from recurring dental decay and have had numerous dental treatments? There are many people who deal with recurring dental decay due to a number of issues. While some people experience these problems because they are negligent with their oral health, for others it may be because of the placement of their teeth. Did you know that choosing orthodontic treatment as an adult may do more than just change the aesthetics of your teeth? Read on to learn more about how orthodontic treatment can improve the state of your oral health.
Invisalign® and Your Oral Health
The initial reason that adults typically invest in orthodontic treatment is because they are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth. If you have crooked teeth or teeth that are not properly aligned, it can cause you to become self-conscious and hide your teeth. Many adults choose to forgo orthodontic care because they are not interested in wearing traditional metal braces. Thankfully, Invisalign® treatment is virtually undetectable allowing adult patients to improve their teeth without the appearance of metal braces. Not only do Invisalign® and orthodontic treatment improve the appearance of the teeth, but they can also eliminate a number of oral health issues.
Improve Your Oral Health
Patients who have overcrowding are typically more prone to developing tooth decay. Unfortunately, certain people with this issue struggle with their oral health because it is so difficult to floss properly and clean certain teeth depending on their placement. These patients often develop gum disease and may require restorative treatments such as dental crowns or even tooth extractions if the decay has reached the tooth root. Invisalign® is a useful treatment because it spreads the teeth out, allowing proper brushing and flossing to occur.
