When you have teeth that overlap – meaning that instead of lining up next to each other, they seem to crowd – you can be frustrated by the way you look when you smile. Overlaps can be unflattering, and they can make your smile appear less healthy. What you also have to contend with is a greater risk for tooth decay and gum disease, because the spaces where teeth overlap can be harder to clean. Your Prairie Village, KS dentist can provide a solution to this problem in the form of MTM Clear Aligners. In addition to offering quality orthodontic treatment, MTM aligners offer benefits to users that other appliances are not able to offer. Once your work concludes, you can enjoy great cosmetic and oral health benefits!
Teeth That Overlap Can Be Harder To Defend Against Cavities
Why would overlaps between your teeth cause problems for your cavity defense? If you have crowded, crooked teeth, you may have a harder time reaching the spaces where they meet whenever you brush. If you are not properly cleaning these areas, bacteria can gather, and you can be faced with problems like tooth decay, as well as issues with gum disease. You can also put more strain on certain teeth because your bite function is compromised.
Starting Treatment With MTM Clear Aligners
When you start treatment with MTM Clear Aligners, you will begin moving your teeth gradually with your removable braces. As you progress, you move from one aligner to the next, and continue to see results. MTM aligners actually offer a different experience than other clear appliances because they focus more on correcting teeth that are visible when you smile. As a result, your work can be completed in less time, so you can have your smile improved in less time than you might think possible!
What To Expect Once Your Orthodontic Work Is Complete
Once your orthodontic work has concluded, you can be impressed at just how much your improved smile changes your overall appearance. In addition to a boost in your confidence, this work can help you bite and chew more naturally, and you can be less likely to have troubles with tooth decay and gum disease. In other words, at the end of your treatment, you can expect to show off a healthier, better-looking smile!
