And no matter your age, you'll appreciate how our cutting-edge approach to treatment has minimal interference in how you live, but has a significant positive impact on how you look and feel about yourself.
You might be surprised to learn that the benefits of having properly aligned teeth extend far beyond an attractive smile. The American Dental Association informs us that straightening your teeth can actually significantly affect everything about your dental health.1 Think about this — a smile can hardly be complete if it's not a healthy one. Dr. Michael Stryker is excited to provide Invisalign® here in our office, and know a confident smile and reducing your risk for tooth decay and gum disease go hand in hand.
HEALTHIER TEETH AND GUMS AT YOUR DENTAL HYGIENE VISIT
Swollen, red gums can often be the result of having teeth that are crowded or too widely spaced. Unfortunately, these are also signs of periodontal disease. When teeth are properly aligned, it helps the gums fit more securely around the teeth, allowing for the strongest and healthiest defense against potential periodontal problems. That’s where Invisalign comes in. Dr Michael Stryker will provide comfortable and clear aligners that gently and gradually begin to move your teeth into the proper position — without unsightly brackets and wires.
One of the biggest challenges of having braces is removing all the food that gets trapped in the brackets and wires. This can often lead to plaque buildup and eventually tooth decay. With Dr Michael Stryker and Invisalign, the aligners are removable, so it’s easy to continue brushing and flossing your teeth the way you normally do.
Dr Michael Stryker wants you to think of your teeth as a window to the health of your body. Your teeth and gums — and how they look to others when you smile—say a lot about your overall health. If you're taking good care of both, you're probably taking good care of the rest of you.
Tooth decay and gum disease are caused by bacteria. Left untreated, they can cause mouth sores, tender or bleeding gums, bad breath, and possible tooth loss. Studies by the American Dental Association have shown that oral infections can also lead to other more serious ailments such as heart disease, stroke, pneumonia and diabetes. Invisalign aligners make daily oral hygiene easier, thus reducing the risk of possible problems. And correctly aligned teeth can also alleviate the issues that can be caused by an improper bite, speech or chewing difficulties, jaw problems, and increased wear on the tooth enamel. Dr. Michael Stryker and Invisalign effectively addresses all of these orthodontic issues, so you'll have the confidence of a great smile and increase the likelihood of improved oral health.
