Why are straight teeth healthier?

The human eye sees beauty in symmetry, so evenly spaced, straight teeth look naturally attractive. A straight smile also contributes to good oral health, and by extension, better overall wellness. How?

Teeth rely on one another for support and proper chewing function. Gaps allow adjoining teeth to shift out of position. Crookedness and overlaps cause teeth to wear prematurely, increasing chance of fractures and breaks, and possibly triggering TMJ disorders and headaches. Misaligned teeth may also keep you from eating nutritious foods like fresh produce, whole grains, nuts, and lean proteins.

Crooked teeth create plenty of nooks and crannies. Those crevices trap bits of food debris and allow harmful oral bacteria to flourish. Brushing and flossing can become quite a challenge. That puts you at higher risk for tooth decay and gum disease. Gum disease is linked to a whole host of other systemic illnesses.

You might initially consider straightening to improve your appearance, but there’s no doubt about it – a straight smile contributes to a healthy mouth and body.

How is Invisalign different from braces?

Invisalign treatment gently straightens teeth with a series of transparent aligners. Designed by a complex computer program, they gradually move teeth into position with low force, as you change to a new set about every two weeks. There are no brackets or wires or tightening appointments. It’s important to wear the aligners at least 20 hours each day, but they are clear, thin, and comfortable. Most people won’t even realize you are straightening. For further health benefit, Invisalign is removable so you are able to eat a healthy diet and keep your mouth sparkling clean with normal brushing and flossing.

Every case is different, but the majority of Dr. Rina’s patients get full results in 12 to 18 months. Since the aligners are virtually invisible, you see improvement along the way.

General Dentistry Testimonial

Hi, before I come to see Doctor Rina and her amazing staff, I was actually someone that had not gone to the dentist for a while because I was so stressed and very worried and anxious about it.
I had been recommended about her from other people and kept in the back of my mind. I finally made the call and from the first call the reception was absolutely amazing and made me feel at home. I let them know right away, I was really anxious. This is when I came in to see the doctor, Doctor Rena was amazing. She went through everything with me. I wouldn’t even smile when I walked in, she noticed I wouldn’t smile. I had had temporary caps on my front teeth for a really, really long time, so she took me through what her options were and it wasn’t good enough that it was just like here’s ABC. She wanted to make sure that we had gone too. A specialist to make sure mines a little bit more, more, issues. Having had root canal treatments on my front teeth and I went ahead, came back and again she sat down with me and gave me all of my options. What’s best for me? What can we do? What can we expect long term? Everyone here is so nice and warm they from the time I walked in for all my appointments they were all. How are you, Paula? How’s everything going? And you just feel like you’re part of a family and made me really feel at ease within a month and a half, She had me smiling like I am now. It was great, my friends, my family, my work people. They all notice exactly just how much more confident I am that I can smile. And honestly, it’s with her and because of the team here. And I found a place I can come back to and now really put my dental health as a priority. So, I definitely recommend her if there’s anything that you’ve left or you just need help on or you’re just looking for a place that you can come and feel comfortable. I definitely say, come to see Doctor Rina.
