Three reasons why you shouldn’t put off orthodontic treatment:
1) You’ll improve the health of your gums.
When your teeth are properly aligned and spaced, it’s easier to brush and floss, and you are less likely to have pockets (spaces) between gums and teeth that trap bacteria.
2) You’ll also improve your dental hygiene.
Reduce the risk of plaque retention, tooth decay, and gum disease when you make a commitment to properly align your teeth.
3) You’ll reduce the risks of wear and trauma.
Aligned teeth reduce the risk of tooth chipping, breaking, and wear, which can require expensive procedures to repair. Proper alignment also reduces stress on the jawbone and joints.
Have you met iTero?
The iTero Impression Scanner allows our dentists to digitally capture a detailed 3D model of your teeth and gums. This is done using a small wand which is moved around your mouth to create 3-D dental impressions of your bite in minutes. The small design of the wand allows us to scan hard-to-reach places in the back of your mouth.
These images may reveal red areas or “hot spots” where you’re grinding or clenching your teeth, usually due to a misaligned bite. Our Dawson dentists will be able to diagnose any orthodontic issues and develop a custom treatment plan for you.
The best part? You don’t have to experience a mouth full of goo anymore while getting fitted for night guards or any other orthodontic appliances. Come and see for yourself!
