3 Ways Orthodontics can Improve Your Overall Health

Did you have orthodontic treatment as an adolescent but didn't wear your retainer consistently, causing your teeth to relapse? Or maybe you never had the treatment you needed to align your teeth when you were younger? Whatever the case may be, living with crooked teeth is embarrassing!

However, there are excellent options that straighten teeth efficiently and discreetly with adult orthodontics in Sarasota, FL. And, you can improve your oral health while you're at it!

A Cure for Bruxism and TMJ Issues

Do you clench and grind your teeth at night while you sleep? Also known as bruxism, grinding your teeth can cause excessive wear and problems with your jaw joint (TMJ). Straightening your teeth may be one solution for eliminating bruxism and protecting your teeth from the damage it causes.

Improved Oral Hygiene

Teeth that are properly aligned are easy to keep clean with regular brushing and flossing. Proper oral hygiene gives you added protection against issues like tooth decay and gum disease.

The Confidence of a Winning Smile

The adage "When you smile, the world smiles with you" has some truth to it. Being able to smile freely and without a care gives you confidence, and it shows in your interactions with others whether personal or professional. A beautiful smile is indeed a useful tool that helps you reach your goals!

Orthodontic Options for Adults

Invisalign offers efficient and discreet treatment for adults by utilizing clear plastic aligners instead of traditional metal brackets. Six Month Smiles uses clear brackets and wires to align your front six teeth in a matter of weeks as opposed to months or years. 

Both of these options are ideal for busy adults interested in aligning their teeth quickly and discreetly. Dr. Kaya Aygen can help determine which option best suits your needs, and he'll guide you through each process every step of the way.
