Poor Dental Alignment Can Affect More Than Just Your Smile

Crooked teeth, or teeth that are poorly spaced, can make a person feel unhappy with the  way they look when they smile. If you have an issue with poor dental alignment, you may be all too familiar with those feelings of self-doubt. Unfortunately, the issue this creates is more than just cosmetic. Your poor alignment could put you at a higher risk for cavities, and it could create issues with TMJ dysfunction. With ClearCorrect, you can fix alignment issues, and enjoy a treatment experience that does not involve conspicuous metal braces. Many people who seek treatment with these clear aligners are approved for this modern approach to orthodontic care. If you have questions, or if you are ready to start treatment, schedule an appointment to find out more! 

How Poor Dental Alignment Can Impact Your Oral Health

Why would poor dental alignment interfere with your oral health? When teeth overlap in inappropriate ways, it can be harder to fully clean them. This can lead to a situation where you have a harder time preventing a buildup of plaque and food debris, which can lead to problems with tooth decay and gum disease. Your improper alignment can also intrude on the way you apply pressure when you bite. Over time, that issue can lead to problems with your jaw joints, and painful TMJ dysfunction.

Using ClearCorrect To Change Your Smile, And Improve Your Oral Health

ClearCorrect uses a series of custom aligners made from clear plastic to gradually shift your teeth into a better position. After you receive your aligners, you will see progressive changes as you undergo care. Because you can remove ClearCorrect aligners on your own, you can remove them when you need to eat, or clean your teeth.
