It can take a lot of courage to make the decision to have your teeth restored, especially if that decision has been long overdue. But hold your horses for a moment – you may need to have your teeth straightened before undergoing any major restorative dental work. Whether you need a simple crown or partial dentures, straightening your teeth beforehand can have a noticeable impact on the success of your restorative dentistry.
Benefits of Straightening Your Teeth
For adults, teeth straightening may seem like an intimidating prospect, but the benefits far outweigh any potential risk – and modern advances in the dental field have made the process easier, quicker, and more painless than ever.
New Ways to Straighten Teeth
Only a few short years ago the only way to have your teeth straightened was through the use of metal braces. Not so today, when a large majority of patients can benefit from the use of aligner therapy. This technique uses a set of custom-made aligners to move your teeth in increments to their ideal position. They are clear, comfortable, and almost undetectable, and they offer a more effective approach to your straightening plan. And best of all, unlike metal braces, they only have to be worn for a short length of time each day, and can be removed for brushing and flossing.
Ask About Straightening Before Restoration
In some cases, Dr. Holman will recommend that you have your teeth straightened before having your teeth restored with crowns, bridges, veneers, dentures, or dental implants. Even if he doesn’t, you should still check out your options with clear aligners before starting restorative dentistry, especially if you are planning to have your teeth straightened at some point anyway. Give us a call today to find out more about straightening your teeth, and to learn more about the restorative procedures that we offer at Holman Family Dentistry.
