Do You Feel Awkward About Your Crooked Smile? It’s Time To Ask Your Dentist About Invisalign


There’s nothing quite like a beautiful smile, is there?

A bright smile can catch the eye of that cutie you’ve been pining over for weeks. It can increase your job prospects and put you at a higher chance at promotion. It can even make you feel better about yourself. This is the logic that spurs so many Americans to visit their dental clinic for a check-up, whether it’s to get a teeth cleaning session done or ask about teeth whitening services. When your own smile is in need of a little polish, a family dentist can help bring out your inner you.

Here are just a few of the resources you can take advantage of during your next trip to the dentist.

Veneers

Think your teeth could use a little more protection? Look no further than veneers. They can keep troublesome stains or chips at bay while brightening your smile, a win-win package for just about anyone in need of a little touch-up. Dentistry is one of the 10 most trusted and ethical professions in the United States, providing reliable and long-lasting care to millions of Americans every year.

Teeth Cleaning

Sometimes you need to stick with the basics. While regular brushing and flossing is essential to keeping your oral health on the up and up, a teeth cleaning session can sift through the cracks and buff out what you’ve missed. The American Dental Association recommends brushing and flossing twice per day or after every meal. It’s also recommended you have a teeth cleaning session once per year (with children recommended twice per year).

Invisalign

Got crooked teeth? No problem! Invisalign is a great resource to straighten your smile and get you feeling good about yourself. Braces back in the day were clunky and unsightly, which seems almost counterproductive concerning a medical treatment that’s meant to improve self-esteem. Invisalign, on the other hand, is a natural alternative that still delivers strong results. A recent study found 45% of Invisalign teen users saying they had a significant boost in their self-esteem.

Dental Implants

Sometimes your dental care requires you go all out. When you’re missing a tooth and are tired of hiding the gap in your smile, your family dentist can recommend an implant. Scientific literature has found dental implants to have a success rate of over 95%. Around three million people today have dental implants, to boot, and that number grows by 500,000 every year. What could an Invisalign treatment or new implant do to make your smile feel more whole?

Cavity Work

Last, but not least…we have the dreaded cavities. Even if you don’t have them right now, you likely know someone who does. It’s estimated one out of five Americans today have one or more untreated cavities, with another study finding nearly half of adults over the age of 30 also having periodontal disease. Both of these conditions are made worse by a lack of proper flossing, so make sure to change those daily habits and visit your dentist more often. An untreated cavity can turn into a root canal, which is a painful mess you don’t need!
