Patients in Calgary give positive reviews of Invisalign treatment
Misalignment of the teeth can be considered a cosmetic issue, causing a patient to feel less than confident when smiling. Crooked, crowded, or twisted teeth can also cause problems with proper oral hygiene, making it difficult to clean adequately between teeth.
At Living Wellness Dental Northland in Calgary, Alberta, we believe in helping our patients to live well, by offering conservative, minimally-invasive, safe, and effective treatments.
Many teens and adults have expressed concern about the appearance and function of teeth that are not symmetrical or ideally aligned, however, the thought of long-term, conventional orthodontic treatment with visible and uncomfortable wire and metal braces is unappealing. Invisalign’s invisible, comfortable, and removable alignment system uses a series of progressive, clear trays that gradually and gently shift teeth into the desired position.
When teeth are appropriately aligned, patients have more confidence and feel better about their smiles. Other benefits include:
Improved oral health and hygiene
Teeth aligned against one another properly are easier to clean with regular brushing and flossing. It is also more difficult for bacteria and plaque to accumulate when teeth are straight because there are fewer hidden places that cannot be reached with the toothbrush. Even when a great deal of effort goes into oral hygiene, there is no making up for areas that are simply inaccessible. To improve oral health, it is important to minimize areas in which plaque can accumulate and harbor unhealthy bacteria. With the advanced Invisalign system from Dr. DeSanti, Dr. James Redd, and our team, our patients can correct alignment issues discreetly, comfortably, and efficiently.
Enhanced functionality in the jaw
Many patients consider only the physical appearance of the teeth. Our team understands that misalignment can also have a significant impact on the whole mouth and jaw. When we chew, upper teeth should fit nicely against lower teeth. When crookedness makes this difficult, the joints and muscles of the jaw will work harder to bring teeth together as necessary for chewing. The stress of adapting can take a toll on the temporomandibular joints of the jaw leading to uncomfortable symptoms that persist without proper treatment.
