Invisalign Isn't Just for Crooked Teeth

Having a gorgeous, straight smile is one of those things you’re either lucky enough to be born with, or you’ve had the help of a great dentist.

However, beautiful straight teeth aren’t just about good looks. They’re also an indication of good health and greatly reduce your risk of other dental problems.

Here are just a few examples:

Gum Disease / Early Tooth Loss

Crooked teeth are at a very high risk of cavities and gum disease. It’s not because you don’t clean them, it’s because they’re harder to clean effectively. Rigorous brushing and flossing just can’t reach deep into those crowded areas. As such, straightening them with Invisalign can help you keep your teeth free of unwanted fillings or treatments.

TMJ Disorder

Do you wake up with headaches? Is a popping or cracking jaw a common occurrence? It could be that your upper and lower teeth aren’t lined up properly. Talking to your dentist or orthodontist in Encino can give a good idea of whether or not Invisalign may help.

Broken, Worn Down Teeth

Speaking of teeth that don’t line up, when teeth bite together improperly, they also tend to wear down far faster. This can lead to broken fillings, chipped crowns, and flat or sharp teeth. Invisalign can help you protect your investments.

Dental Emergencies

Did you know that large overbites or overjets are far more likely to endure a fracture during everyday activities? Straightening your teeth can limit your risk of emergencies.

If you’re thinking about finally investing in your smile, you ought to ask SoCal native, Dr. Jamsheed about Invisalign. These clear, removable aligners make it easy to clean your teeth and don’t require the use of metal brackets and wires. Plus, your entire treatment process is completed right here at Encino Dental Studio.
