Oral Health Advantages of Invisalign
Crooked teeth can be a complex oral health concern. Linked to an increased risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and TMJ disorder, it is important to address your crooked teeth with your Villanova Dental Studio dentist.
Invisalign offers teen and adult patients several advantages over traditional braces. Removable, the clear aligners can be taken out so patients can maintain their thorough oral hygiene routine throughout treatment. Regular brushing and flossing helps to prevent yellowing of the teeth and decreases the chance of developing tooth decay, concerns common with metal braces. Invisalign aligners may also be removed for special occasions, such as a wedding or work presentations, and to enjoy a diet without restrictions.
Invisalign can be used to treat a range of orthodontic concerns:
- Gaps between teeth
- Uneven teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Protrusive teeth
- Crowded teeth
Invisalign & TMJ Treatment
Dr. Barakat may recommend the use of Invisalign as a part of a comprehensive TMJ treatment plan to address issues related to malocclusion. Many patients who experience chronic pain associated with TMJ do so because of a misaligned bite or crooked teeth. Invisalign can be effectively used to realign under bites, overbites, or crowded teeth for a more comfortable jaw position. Many patients have found success in using Invisalign to relieve symptoms of TMJ such as headaches, jaw pain, and chronic fatigue.
