With the newest, greatest, and most cutting-edge technology at the best dental office in Troy – you too can have your teeth looking and feeling great in no time!
In just a short time it is absolutely possible to achieve a healthy, properly aligned, functional, and cosmetically perfect smile.
The actual technology of “straightening teeth” has become so advanced, that a few quick photos of your teeth (using an iPhone) are loaded on an app and, voila! Within five minutes you are told whether or not you are a candidate for the “express straightening procedure”(i.e. Invisalign Go). This procedure is approximately half the cost and time of traditional treatment. What a breakthrough!!
Next, imprints of the teeth are obtained by the qualified experts at Troy Dental Clinic. Finally, within just a few short days, clear trays are custom fabricated and professionally fitted to correct crooked teeth. Depending upon the duration of treatment recommended, regular visits are required to change out trays and carefully monitor the progress of treatment. The results are truly “magical!”
As an adult, what are some complications of crooked or misaligned teeth long term? To name a few: cold sensitivity; chipping or wearing of teeth; gum or periodontal disease; food stuck between teeth; difficulty cleaning teeth; “notches” of teeth at gumline (recession); jaw/muscle/teeth and/or head pain from an unequal bite; bad breath and “puffy”, sore, irritated and/or bleeding gums may lead to bone loss and moving teeth – and- last but not least- simply not being able to smile without feeling self-conscious.
Research shows that greater than seven out of ten adults have a “crooked” smile that can, and often does, lead to these and many other problems.
This well-known research has prompted even more dental insurance companies to cover teeth “straightening” treatments. Even the insurance companies have realized that it is more beneficial and economic to correct misaligned teeth than to have to “pay out” for more complicated and costly procedures down the line. With teeth straightening becoming a faster, more efficient, aesthetic and affordable option, the choice is obvious. Promote and pay for straighter teeth.
Lastly, it is absolutely imperative to stress that this procedure can and should be done by dental offices – in a proper setting. The risks and complications of new age, at-home, do-it-yourself straightening methods are far too great and more often than not, lead to situations that are unable to be corrected. There is an absolute reason that dentists train for many years to perform, achieve, monitor, and maintain predictable, functional, and aesthetic results. Moreover, dentists are held accountable for this (by law). This protects you – the recipient of a beautiful smile!!!
