Clear Correct Orthodontics by the Right Smile Center

Clear Aligner Tray

The field of orthodontics made a quantum leap with a technique for removable clear aligners developed in 1997, and today it is absolutely possible to straighten teeth with nearly invisible appliances. The use of clear aligners involves the application of a series of incrementally different aligners for top and bottom teeth that are similar in appearance to whitening trays. Aligners are typically changed every two to four weeks, and each new set is designed to gradually shift teeth into place.  Our practice generally focuses on cosmetic Orthodontic Tooth Movement (OTM), so most of our treatment plans last somewhere around 6 to 8 months.

Obviously, the treatment success depends heavily on your compliance. Patients are generally happier with aligners because they’re nearly invisible and can be taken out for brushing and eating. What’s most important is the aligners must be worn 20 to 22 hours per day for treatment to remain on track.

So the next time you consider helping your smile reach its potential and your face registers instant dismay when orthodontics pops in your head, we have a nearly invisible and affordable offer you can’t refuse.  Please give us call or email us for a consult.

Healthy smile, healthy you! | Sandy Springs Dentist

Health smile, healthy you!

Regular dental visits can tell a dentist a lot about your overall health.  Recent research indicates that your oral health is a reflection of your global health.  Meaning, if your mouth is healthy, chances are your overall health is also healthy.  Those with poor oral health, this may be sending signals of other health issues.

Additionally, a healthy smile may actually prevent certain diseases from occurring, such as gum precipitated heart infections.  As of late, a lot of orthopedic surgeons are requesting a blessing from your dentist before they operate.  According to the American Academy of Periodontology, there is a relationship between gum disease and health complications such as a stroke and heart disease.[1]   Women, in particular with gum disease  show higher incidences of pre-term, low birth-weight babies.

Recent studies have shown that there are microbiologic and immunological findings that  support the association.  These studies indicate that periodontal infection can lead to placental-fetal exposure and, when coupled with a fetal inflammatory response, can lead to preterm delivery.[2]

Further research shows that more than 80 percent of all systemic diseases have oral manifestations, including swollen gums, mouth ulcers, dry mouth and/or excessive gum problems. Such systemic diseases include:

  • diabetes
  • leukemia
  • cancer
  • heart disease
  • kidney disease

Since most people have regular oral examinations their dentist may be the first line of defense to diagnose a health problem in its early stages.

Failing to take care of your teeth and can actually lead to other health problems, including:

  • Oral and facial pain. According to the Office of the Surgeon General, this pain may be largely due to infections of the gums that support the teeth and can lead to tooth loss. Gingivitis, an early stage of gum disease, and advanced gum disease affect more than 75 percent of the U.S. population.
  • Problems with the heart and other major organs. Mouth infections can affect major organs. For example, the heart and heart valves can become inflamed by bacterial endocarditis, a condition that affects people with heart disease or anyone with damaged heart tissue.
  • Oral cancer. Poor oral care can contribute to oral cancer, which now takes more lives annually than cervical or skin cancer.
  • Digestion problems. Digestion begins with physical and chemical processes in the mouth, and problems here can lead to intestinal failure, irritable bowel syndrome and other digestion disorders.

Seeing a dentist regularly keeps your mouth healthy and allows your dentist opportunities to examine developments that may point to other health issues.  As always, if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact our office in Sandy Springs for a consultation.
