Westchester County Orthodontic Specialist Explains the Additional Benefits of Braces and Invisalign
In Cortlandt Manor, Dr. Glaser has been serving adults, children, and everyone in between with braces and Invisalign treatments, and he has always promoted these orthodontic treatments for not only their cosmetic benefits, but also their additional benefits. Braces serve as not only a technique to achieve a beautiful smile, but can also make a difference in the overall health, oral health, and oral function of the Yorktown patient.
Bad bites or jaw issues can cause pain and discomfort to the patient. Braces, Invisalign, and other orthodontic appliances fix these overbite, under bite, and cross bites which can prevent recession of the gums, teeth infractions, or uneven wear of the teeth. Bad bites not only affect the patients teeth, but can cause difficulty chewing, speech problems, or unaligned jaw joints which lead to neck aches or headaches, says Dr. Glaser. The use of braces or Invisalign to correct these problems is just another additional benefit to orthodontic treatment by Glaser Orthodontics.
When teeth have been straightened with an orthodontic appliance, the patient can clean and care for their teeth much easier. Crooked, crowded teeth can cause the patient to have trouble thoroughly brushing, flossing, and rinsing their teeth. The teeth can overlap and create “nooks and crannies” or other hard to clean spots which can than lead to build up of plaque and tartar, gum disease, cavities, or infections. These problems can wear down and destroy the hard enamel of your teeth.
Of course, the most common reason why many living in Westchester County come to Glaser Orthodontics for Dr. Glaser, braces and Invisalign specialist, is for cosmetic reasons. But beyond having a beautiful, Hollywood smile, straight teeth give everyone a boost of confidence, especially children. Having straight teeth is just another reason to exert your confidence and show off your beautiful smile.
Dr. Glaser has been serving Cortlandt Manor and surrounding areas in giving patients the oral health, functionality, and confidence due to braces and Invisalign treatments.
