Doing what needs to be done to take care of your smile can range in terms of treatment options, as it largely depends on your unique situation and needs. For instance, decay can be handled with various forms of restorative dentistry, and stains or cracks may be addressed with cosmetic treatment. Though you may not be fond of a crooked tooth due to its hindrance to your grin’s appearance, there are actually health concerns associated with misaligned grins as well. In today’s blog, your Lake Orion, MI dentist discusses the benefits of clear aligners, and how we can help treat your smile with SureSmile.
The Impact of Crooked Teeth
Many patients are aware of the cosmetic impact of crooked structures, as they can cause your smile to look lackluster or blemished. Though this is a valid concern, it is far from the worst misalignment has to offer. As a matter of fact, when structures develop at an angle or a suboptimal placement, it can lead to a heightened risk of losing natural teeth due to crowding and competition.
You see, your structures develop in such a way that very minimal space is present between each one. If the developmental angle is off, even just slightly, this can lead to gaps in-between teeth as well as overlap. Further, when teeth roots have to compete for enough structural support to help absorb the pressure of your bite, the result is less stability, and thus, more of a chance that you receive a serious injury or lose a tooth down the line. To learn more about this process and what our team can do to help, give our office a call today.
Difficulties with Oral Care
In addition to overcrowding and competing for space, another major concern that arises from misaligned teeth includes difficulties with oral care. More specifically, when structures crowd each other and cause overlap, the overlap itself can house a great number of oral bacteria attempting to evade the dangers of your toothbrush. In other words, it is much more difficult to clean these pocketed areas, and as such, you experience a heightened chance of developing gum disease or decay. Fortunately, our team knows exactly how to help. Give us a call today to learn more about this process.
Virtually Unnoticeable Treatment
Invisible aligners such as SureSmile help to gradually and safely guide your structures into a more optimal placement in a manner that is virtually unnoticeable to observers from a distance. Indeed, the material used offers a much more discreet solution than traditional brackets and braces, allowing you to receive the treatment you require without compromising your smile’s appearance.
