A few lucky patients develop seamless, perfectly aligned smiles naturally. For the rest of us, there’s orthodontic treatment! The truth is that improving dental alignment can boost your oral health while improving dental aesthetics. Our Toluca Lake Invisalign dentists explain…
Structural Orthodontic Treatment
For many people, the primary purpose of orthodontic treatment is to improve dental aesthetics. Undoubtedly, Invisalign can make your smile more attractive and refined, however, the benefits of orthodontic treatment don’t stop there. The truth is that there are a number of oral health benefits to undergoing Invisalign!
If, for example, you are someone who has a crossbite, underbite, or overbite, you can use Invisalign to improve how your top and bottom teeth come together. Optimizing dental alignment helps you avoid attrition, or dental thinning, over time. A well-designed bite also alleviates strain on the temporomandibular joints and improves jaw functioning.
All kinds of patients are good candidates for Invisalign treatment—it is so easy to fit into your daily life! Before we get started our team will make sure that your individual teeth, as well as your gum tissue, are healthy enough for orthodontic treatment. We may recommend that you treat any existing cavities or damaged enamel, and that you replace failing crowns. Once these things are taken care of, we will design your transparent aligners to fit over your healthy smile.
