The Benefits of Straight Teeth

If you have children, then chances are you have started thinking about what to do if they need to have their teeth straightened. If they do need this, then your first question is probably related to “How much is this going to cost?” This is a valid decision when considering options for straightening your child’s teeth, and will have serious effects, including their smile, confidence, and health.

Here at East Center Dental, we offer Invisalign, which is an amazing teeth straightening product that will be a perfect match for almost anyone. In some situations, it may be necessary to get braces, but we are the first place to start. Many people think that Invisalign and braces are just for cosmetic treatment, but this isn’t true. In fact, there are many serious reasons that having straight teeth is important. Some of these issues include things like trouble chewing, which can have many serious effects. Many people with severely crooked teeth will often have embarrassment, and avoid smiling because of this. Teeth that are not straight can also cause more cavities since it will make cleaning your teeth very difficult. You could also suffer from jaw pain since your bight isn’t correct. Invisalign, can resolve all of these issues and make your teeth as good as new! Because of the seriousness of not straight teeth, it makes the cost of Invisalign or braces well worth it.

When it comes to the different types of teeth straitening products, there are a few factors that determine whether or not Invisalign or braces are the best options for you. Also, not everyone will have the same experience or needs. Every person we see is different and has different needs when it comes to their oral health.

Time is a big change from person to person. Someone who has more things that need to be corrected will have to wear braces for much longer. This means that some people will need braces for years, and others may only need a few months.

If your teeth are severely misaligned, then this could limit what options you have available. Invisalign is great for someone that has their teeth in roughly the right place/order and doesn’t need teeth pulled over or moved around. Braces are usually able to handle more severe cases due to the ability to pull teeth down, or other major adjustments.

Your dentist is going to be the first step in determining if your teeth need straightening. They will also let you know if this will be cosmetic, or will actually have serious issues if you don’t take care of straightening your teeth. In the case of East Center Dental our dentists will be able to assist you with Invisalign, so you may not even need to go to an Orthodontist. Otherwise, we will be able to send to you to someone that can assist. The reason we love Invisalign is that you are able to remove them when you eat meals, and they are almost invisible, which means that if you are an adult, it won’t be as obvious you are wearing them. Teens are also a big fan of this. You can schedule a time with us to talk about what option for straightening your teeth is best.
