Why Do Straight Teeth Really Matter?

Partial invisalign clear alignerWhen someone smiles, one of the first things people often notice is the teeth. If teeth are out of alignment even a little bit, it is often noticeable. Though teeth tend to come in at different angles, this does not always mean they require dental intervention. So, do straight teeth even really matter? While there is nothing wrong with a slightly crooked tooth here and there, you may still benefit from Invisalign® in Alpharetta, GA, and Sandy Springs, GA, an aligner orthodontic solution.

Personal Benefits

Straightening your teeth offers several personal benefits:

  • Confidence in your smile
  • Easier time speaking and eating
  • Fuller shape to your face
  • Access to more of your teeth for better brushing and flossing

How Invisalign® Aligner Treatment Works

Aligners are specially molded trays that fit over your teeth and move them into better alignment over time. Treatment typically lasts over a year, and you go through a whole set of aligners during that time. The number of aligners you use depends on the length of treatment. You move to a new aligner as your teeth shift into place. Aligners must be worn for at least 22 hours each day and can only be removed for eating and cleaning your teeth.

Invisalign® Advantages

There are many advantages to using Invisalign®. The aligners are clear, so they are hardly noticeable to anyone who does not know you are wearing them. You do not have any food restrictions because you can remove the aligners whenever you eat. Keeping your teeth clean is also a breeze because you remove the aligners to brush and floss. Just keep them on for the rest of the day and night, and your teeth will be straighter by the end of the orthodontic treatment.

Dental Implant Options: Which Should You Choose?

People often take their teeth for granted until they are in pain or lose a tooth through traumatic impact or poor dental health. While it can be devastating to lose a tooth, the good news is that there are many dental options available to restore your dental function. Dental implants in Sandy Springs, GA and Alpharetta, GA can help you get the full use of your teeth back. The trick is figuring out what you need: single, multiple, or full arch? Well Dr. Dan Myers at The Dentist Centers is here to help.

Single Dental Implant

A single dental implant is exactly as it sounds. Dr. Myers, your dentist in Alpharetta, GA, and Sandy Springs, GA, places a single titanium post into your jaw. This fuses to the bone through a process known as osseointegration. The dentist places a crown on top of the post, and you get to enjoy the following:

  • Eat your favorite foods
  • Prevent jaw bone deterioration
  • Care for your implant like a real tooth
  • Speak naturally
  • Enjoy your implant for a lifetime

Multiple Implants

If you have more than one missing tooth, you could restore the use of multiple teeth at once using a dental bridge. With an implant procedure, titanium posts are strategically placed to hold the bridge over the gap. This makes it so you do not need to place an implant for every single missing tooth.

Full-Arch Dental Implants

Full-arch dental implants restore the function of a full set of teeth either on the upper or lower gums. A few implants are placed in the jaw, and a full arch of dentures is seated on top of the implants. This has an advantage over traditional dentures because full-arch dental implants do not slip, and you do not have to remove them for cleaning each night.
