Stopping Your Gums from Going Away | Palm Beach Gardens Dentist

Have you ever heard the expression “long in the tooth”, typically used to describe those that are getting older? Have you ever stopped and wondered why that expression even exists? Believe it or not, it has to do with smile, but nothing to do with your teeth. This expression is used because as we age, our gums begin to recede and gives the impression that our teeth have gotten longer. Yes, the culprit for this funny little saying is gum recession.

What causes our gums to recede depends on a number of options, from genetics to poor dental hygiene. But don’t worry, the condition is treatable.

And since we will begin to have this recession as we age, is it something we need to treat?

Straighten Your Teeth with Invisalign | Palm Beach Gardens Dentist

invisalign

Having crooked teeth can prevent you from smiling as much as you’d like. After all, your smile is the first thing people see. So, what do you do to fix those flaws? Whether your teeth are crowded, too far apart or have shifted, Invisalign invisible braces may be right for you. But there is no way to tell without the help of a dental exam.

Upon an initial examination, your dental professional will come up with a treatment plan and an impression of your teeth will be taken in order to customize your first set of aligners. These aligners will move your teeth gradually week by week until you achieve the smile you have always desired.

An Invisalign treatment consists of a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that you change every two weeks for the next set of aligners. Each aligner is individually manufactured for your teeth, and your teeth only. As you replace each aligner, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position.

Unfortunately, not everyone is able to use Invisalign. Those with minimal amount of straightening are the most ideal candidates. Those with major work needed may need to stick to the traditional versions as they are the most effective with these cases.

If you’re ready for a smile that transforms your appearance, Invisalign is your answer. Although there are many choices out there, no other treatment works as comfortably as Invisalign. And if you are eligible for this treatment plan, Invisalign is the best way to transform your smile without interfering with your day-to-day life.
