Misaligned teeth can be unattractive, hard to keep clean and can often be the reason why someone is afraid to smile. Fortunately, Omaha dentists like Dr. Karry Whitten are treating patients with Invisalign, the latest technology used to straighten teeth and improve oral health. Invisalign is an easy, comfortable way to re-align the teeth to give you the healthy smile that you’ve always wanted without the hassle and discomfort of traditional metal braces.
The benefits of Invisalign extend beyond just making a beautiful smile. Individuals who have crooked teeth are at higher risk for gum disease. We now know that the health effects of periodontal (gum) disease go well beyond your mouth. Research shows that individuals with gum disease are more likely to have heart disease, complications with diabetes, and die prematurely. Therefore, the use of Invisalign to straighten crowded teeth will decrease the risk for gum disease and in turn will help improve a person’s overall health.
In addition, Invisalign can also help improve TMJ pain by repositioning the teeth and jaw. A bite that comes together poorly can often lead to premature wear and damage to the teeth and the joint. A poor bite can also cause undue stress to the muscles of the face and neck leading to tension headaches and migraine headaches. Fortunately, Omaha migraine therapy is available at Whitten Dentistry. Our priority as an Omaha Invisalign provider is to make your mouth not only beautiful and healthy but also functioning in the most ideal way possible to help your smile last a lifetime.
