Can Invisalign Make Your Smile Healthier?

Invisalign - the clear alternative to braces.

If you’re interested in Invisalign, you’re likely lured by its discreet design and proven ability to correct your crooked teeth. But Invisalign does more than just address your smile aesthetics, it can also improve your oral health too. For patients that have overlapping or crowded teeth, Invisalign can do make a significant difference in their dental health. If you have been told your teeth are “crowded”, it simply means that they are aligned too close to one another.

The following oral health consequences can develop from a crowded smile:

Gum Disease – When crowding occurs, it leaves tight spaces in between teeth that are difficult to keep clean. Food debris is easily trapped at the gum line, which largely contributes to infection and gum disease. Certain foods, like chips or popcorn, can even make small lacerations in the gums when they become lodged.

Enamel Damage – Another concern from crowded or overlapping teeth is the wearing down of dental enamel. This can result from extra friction on the teeth or an improper bite. Once your enamel goes away, you can’t replace it. You may suffer from sensitive or discolored teeth.

Jaw Problems – Speaking of an improper bite, it is also possible that your crowded teeth don’t allow your upper and lower teeth to bite down in a comfortable or proper manner. This can cause excessive strain on your jaw muscles, leading to TMJ issues.

The good news is that Invisalign is highly effective in correcting crowded teeth, as well as other types of misalignment. Invisalign is the perfect choice for improving both your smile appearance and your smile health. Best of all, you won’t have to sacrifice your self-confidence and lifestyle in the process.

Susan

Dr. Gilreath is incredible with my kids. They love going to the dentist now! And this busy mom loves the warm neck wraps, the soft music and enjoying a latte while I relax!

Kenneth H.

Was lucky enough to find these guys when I got insurance that my old dentist did not take. Very professional and friendly staff! Office has the latest greatest technology as well. If you're looking for a new dentist, search no further!

Susie L.

Very personable and friendly, they took the time to go over my complex dental history and did not pressure me into anything. They gave their recommendations and priced out any options I had. Great group!

Camille Y.

Dr. Gilreath and his staff are top notch. I received the best cleaning I've ever had while watching my favorite show. The Doctor and his staff were all very polite, friendly, and courteous. They explained everything to me clearly and presented me with options in a gentle way that didn't make me feel pressured at all. It's obvious they really care about the wellbeing of their patients. The facility and equipment is really nice as well. I will definitely be back!

Juan R.

Always willing to work around my kids and my schedules. Today I had a long appointment. They started on time and always made sure I was comfortable and that the pain was managed so the procedure could’ve been completed without issues. Very courteous and professional staff.

Lucia B.

Awesome dental practice! The staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Gilreath is thorough and versed in the latest technology and procedures. I love that he can make crowns in the office while you wait (so no walking around with a temporary crown for days or weeks). I would strongly recommend this dental practice!

Matthew W.

I've been going here for about a little over a year now. I've had a few cleanings, a filling, and started Invisiline so far. Hands down, the best run dental office I've ever been to. In the past at other dental offices I often had to wait 30 or more minutes beyond my appointment time before being seen. At Dr. Gilreath's office I've been seen on time every time. They seem to have systems in place to make every part of your visit run smoothly. From how they took x-rays, to billing and appointments, to the work done by the hygienist/dentist, everything seems to run like a well oiled machine. On top of that all the staff are all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The office space itself is also quite nice. Very clean, well maintained, and seems very "up to date" with their equipment. If you're looking for a dentist and are anywhere in the northwest metro area I would highly recommend Dr. Gilreath.

Jhion R.

The staff is always so courteous and personable. They make us feel like family every time we have an appointment. Service is excellent, too. My wife recently went for a cleaning and Dr. Gilreath noticed a chip in one of her fillings. He knew we recently had another baby and that her time was very limited so he went ahead and did the filling right then and there, an extra thirty minutes tops. Dr. Gilreath is always looking at the big picture and really knows his stuff. We will never go anywhere else
