Biting and chewing are actions we perform often, and you may spend little time thinking about how you are moving your jaw when you perform them. With that being said, the alignment of your bite is more important than you might realize, and an uneven bite can raise your risk for dental problems, including TMJ disorder. So why do some people have problems with their bite alignment? One issue that can affect people is the alignment of their teeth. Gaps and overlaps can throw off your ability to naturally apply pressure evenly. As a result, you can put more strain on your joints and muscles, or become too reliant on certain teeth without realizing it. With SureSmile Clear Aligners, our Prairie Village, KS dentist’s office is able to offer a discreet solution for this problem. Your appliances will be able to discreetly fix your smile, and they can do so in less time than other aligners require.
Malocclusion Can Affect More Than Just The Way You Look
Malocclusion is a problem for many people. If your teeth are not in the right positions, the quality of your smile can make you self-conscious. In fact, many people seek orthodontic treatment because of the benefits to their appearance. With that said, an issue with the spacing and alignment of teeth can also be a concern for your oral health. Your teeth may be harder to keep clean because they overlap. You can also struggle with an uneven bite, which can lead to problems with jaw pain and stiffness.
Discuss Treatment With SureSmile Clear Aligners
SureSmile Clear Aligners are a different approach to orthodontic work, one that will not require the use of traditional metal braces. Instead of using fixed appliances, your aligners are removable, and they are made from a clear material that leaves them difficult to see. Over time, you will move from one appliance to the next as you gradually fix your smile. While some appointments to check on your adjustment can be scheduled, you can require fewer trips to a practice than you would when using traditional braces.
Your SureSmile Aligners Can Produce Results In Less Time!
SureSmile aligners separate themselves from other appliances by offering shorter treatment periods. This is possible because their design is affected by a goal of prioritizing the movement of front teeth. This change leads to visible results in a shorter period of time, and it can produce final results in as little as a year!
