People with misaligned teeth often look for orthodontists that offer braces in Southington. Before committing to this traditional metal treatment, patients should consider Invisalign in CT. Team Demas Orthodontists in CT can discuss the benefits of Invisalign in greater detail. However, here are some conditions that the Invisalign in CT customers have seen improvement on:

Speech Problems

Speech difficulties, like lisp, are often caused by misaligned teeth. Addressing a misaligned bite can cure most, if not all, speech issues.

Difficulty Eating

A severe overbite or underbite can lead to pain and difficulty chewing. As a result, a person with overbite or underbite might avoid certain foods altogether. By fixing the patient’s bite, Invisalign allows the person to once again enjoy foods that, before, were too painful to enjoy.

Temporomandibular Joint and Muscle Disorders

Temporomandibular joint and muscle disorders, or “TMJs,” affect the joints and muscles that connect the skull and the lower jaw. A bad bite, years of teeth grinding, arthritis, and even poor posture can cause painful, undue stress on these joints and surrounding muscles.

Risk of Tooth Decay

Orthodontist that offers Invisalign in CT can cut a patient’s risk of developing tooth decay. Plaque attached to teeth and irritates the gum line; when plaque is not removed through daily brushing and care, it will turn into tartar. The tartar causes gum disease, tooth decay, and abscesses. Misaligned teeth lessen the patient’s ability to effectively brush away plaque and bacteria. Invisalign CT patients report an improved day-to-day dental care routine.

Improved Self Esteem

A patient’s low self-esteem is perhaps the most important issue that orthodontists in CT can address with Invisalign. A person can develop self-esteem issues because of a severely misaligned bite, which can make that person feel unattractive and insecure. A person can also suffer from self esteem issues because of bad breath, abnormal eating habits, cavities, and other health problems that are associated with misaligned teeth.

If you are suffering from health problems or self-esteem issues as a result of misaligned teeth, Team in CT can help you decide if Invisalign is right for you. Team Demas also offers braces in Southington, so the skilled team can discuss these options along with Invisalign in CT. Invisalign can do more than just fix a smile; Invisalign can put you on track to a happier, healthier, more fulfilling life.
