Why You Should Consider Straightening Your Teeth

March 13, 2020
Posted By: Dr. Fairfax & Associates Family Dentistry

Living with teeth that are crooked, overlapped, or unevenly spaced can make you feel self-conscious about your smile. It's hard to live your best life when you're worried about what other people think of your teeth.

Even if you've grown used to smiling with crooked teeth, there are actually several ways that they also impact your dental health. Brushing and flossing crooked or rotated teeth is much harder, and can result in an increased risk of developing problems like gum disease or tooth decay if you can't keep them clean.

A misaligned bite can also cause problems for your jaw joint that can result in difficulties or pain when chewing, headaches or migraines, and even neck and shoulder tenderness.

Straightening your teeth not only gives you the beautiful smile you've always wanted but also helps to protect your dental health.

Invisible Braces in Fairfax Make Straightening Your Teeth Simple

There's never been a better time to get that straighter, more beautiful smile you've always wanted than now with Invisalign. Instead of using brackets and wires to straighten your teeth that are bulky and made of metal, Invisalign uses clear aligners. Plastic aligners are smooth and easy to wear, with no concerns about poking wires or brackets that irritate your gums.

Even better, invisible braces with Invisalign in Fairfax are removable, so there are no concerns about avoiding certain foods during treatment or changing the way you brush and floss your teeth.

Dr. Cerina Fairfax is a certified Invisalign provider, and she can help you determine if invisible braces will work for you. During an evaluation of your smile, Dr. Fairfax will use 3-D imaging to plan your treatment and show you the possibilities of what your finished smile could look like.
