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.

Procedure – Gum Disease Testimonial

Hi, my name is Naren. I have been coming to dentistry on 10 for at least five years, probably a lot longer than that. I first heard about Doctor Rena, through a friend of mine who was my roommate back in college and the, the, thing that attracted me to her right off the bat is she went to Harvard of course, you know Harvard is one of the top schools in the world, so you know studying at Harvard and Learning dentistry Harvard, I’ve never met anybody who went to Harvard, so that was the number one thing. But when I came here, it’s not the Harvard that I ended up staying here for. It’s because she’s a very caring person and she has a team that really is caring. So, for example, you know I, I, have some health conditions and you know taking care of my gums is really, really, important and I’m like not that good at taking care of myself. So you know she just, just, stuck with me, just kept at me and, you know, just taught me things and talk to me about things and you know. And when I did, you know, kind of mess up and you know, get gum disease again. You know she you know, stuck with me. So, like for me personally, I know people come for dentistry for lots of reasons, some people you know, care about their smile and things like that. For me personally, it’s the health because I have a history of health issues in my family and I know the importance of, you know, taking care of your gums and you overall mouth and health so I would strongly recommend Doctor Rena if you really care about your health. If you really want somebody who’s not just trying to, you know, give you things you don’t need, but really, who’s trying to focus on what’s good for you, helping you achieve your goals. She’s very caring, very, very patient, very, very, gentle and, and, she’s there for you. So, it’s almost like having a partner in health who’s working with you to make your life better. So, we all need it, and especially as we get older when we are in our 40s and 50s, we need to take care of our health and without doctor Rena I don’t think I would have the comes I have and I don’t think I would be working on my health. Thank you very much Doctor Rena and I would, absolutely without a hesitation, recommend anybody and my entire family comes here as well as my two kids and My wife. So, thank you for being an amazing dentist and thank you for caring about people who live in the neighbourhood and their health.
