How orthodontic treatment from your Folsom dentist can help you

Everyone knows how orthodontic treatment can make your smile look better, but did you know that orthodontics can also improve the health of your smile? In fact, there are many benefits of orthodontic treatment and Dr. Shaina DiMariano at DiMariano Family Dentistry & Orthodontics in Folsom, CA wants to share the benefits with you.

It’s no secret that straight teeth are more cosmetically beautiful than rotated, twisted teeth. A straight smile can enhance your self-esteem and self-confidence. Straight teeth make you want to smile, increasing your comfort level in social situations.

Orthodontic treatment also makes your teeth easier to clean. Brushing is more effective, and flossing becomes a breeze! No more getting floss caught in between tight, rotated teeth. When you can brush and floss easily, you are more likely to clean your teeth regularly. Regular oral hygiene dramatically decreases your chances of tooth decay, gum and periodontal disease.

Orthodontic treatment straightens your teeth, and it also aligns your bite. Poor bite alignment can result in worn, chipped teeth which increase your risk of needing expensive dental restorations. A bad bite can also cause jaw problems, including temporomandibular joint disorder. Orthodontics corrects jaw issues including overbite, underbite, crossbite or open bite, so you can enjoy undamaged teeth and stress-free jaw movement.

You have many orthodontic options to choose from at DiMariano Family Dentistry & Orthodontics, including:

  • Conventional metal braces, with metal brackets and wires
  • Clear braces, with clear brackets and tooth-colored wires
  • Lingual braces, which are cemented onto the back surfaces of teeth

Dr. DiMariano also offers revolutionary Invisalign, virtually invisible orthodontic treatment. This innovative treatment uses clear plastic aligners which you can remove for cleaning and eating. You can have a straight smile in as little as nine to fifteen months with Invisalign.
