Invisalign in Prescott, AZ

Orthodontics (Invisalign)

You might be surprised to know that your health can be benefited by having straight teeth. If “form follows function”, then Beautiful form follows Beautiful function. That is why we offer Invisalign in Prescott, AZ.

Most people want to enjoy the esthetic enhancement that comes with straight teeth; there is beauty in proper alignment and in balance. But, the advantages to proper tooth alignment go beyond looks:

  • Healthier teeth
    Crowded teeth have a higher likelihood of decay/cavities since they are the hardest to keep clean. Also, when teeth are improperly aligned, the biting forces are poorly distributed and chipping, fracturing and even tooth loss are more likely to occur from this “traumatic occlusion”. This can lead to more dental work down the road – which can be both costly and uncomfortable. Remember, teeth that are properly aligned have less opportunity for decay and are generally far healthier than there non-aligned counterparts.
  • Healthier gums
    When teeth are crowded, gums tend to become red, swollen and painful; these are also the signs of periodontal or gum disease. The same can be said for teeth that are too far apart – food can get impacted deep into the gums and also cause damage to your gums. Remember, teeth that are properly aligned give the gums less opportunity for periodontal disease and are generally are far healthier.
  • Healthier heart, mind and body
    There is research indicating that periodontitis may be associated with several other health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes or stroke.1,2 Remember, the mouth is the gateway to the body – it is almost always your first line of defense – your oral health really does matter!

So if you have ever thought about “straightening your teeth”, you are doing so much more than just gaining a “better smile” – your gums will be healthier as they are more easy to maintain, your teeth will likely need less dental work over the years as they are easier to keep clean and will not suffer trauma from misalignment, and studies show that your over health may just be benefited as well.

If you would like to know more about what straight teeth can do for your and how your goal for straighter teeth and better health can be achieved, please call our office to schedule a FREE consultation with Dr. Nathan Thompson.
