Many patients know that orthodontic treatment can improve the appearance of their smiles. However, treatments like Invisalign can also improve patients’ overall physical and oral health. Invisalign is a part of biorejuvenation dentistry, which takes a biological approach to dentistry. Dr. Ratti Handa utilizes biorejuvenation dentistry to provide patients with Invisalign in Acton, MA. With Invisalign, Dr. Handa helps improve the bite and prevent future oral health and overall health problems for her patients.
Problems Caused By Crooked Teeth
Patients who have crooked or misaligned teeth can have a variety of additional problems. An uneven bite caused by crooked teeth puts more pressure on the jaw. Patients with this uneven bite may be more likely to develop a temporomandibular joint disorder. This disorder is caused by stress or injury to the joints that connect the skull and jawbone. TMJ disorders lead to teeth grinding, tooth wear, and facial pain. It can also be difficult for patients to clean between their crooked teeth. If a patient has areas of their smile that they cannot easily clean, there is a better chance of bacteria buildup. Straightening the smile creates a healthier bite.
Comfortable Treatment with Invisalign
Invisalign is a great treatment for patients with mild to moderate orthodontic problems. This orthodontic treatment uses clear aligners that gradually straighten teeth. Dr. Handa takes dental impressions to help map out Invisalign treatment. These impressions also ensure that the Invisalign aligners fit properly and feel comfortable in the mouth.
Invisalign comes with many advantages over traditional metal braces. Because Invisalign aligners are clear, they are more discreet. The aligners are also removable, so patients can clean their smiles without any wires or brackets in the way. Patients can also eat the foods they enjoy without any dietary restrictions. Using Invisalign treatment, patients can create a straighter and healthier smile.
