When you want your teeth straightened, traditional metal braces are not your only choice. At Peak Dental, you can rid yourself of the self-consciousness by choosing Invisalign braces, which are essentially invisible. They have other benefits, as well, while providing you with the same degree of effectiveness in terms of moving your teeth as you would get with metal braces.

Very often, the reason for having teeth realigned is primarily cosmetic, but there are other drawbacks of improperly positioned teeth. They can cause discomfort, throw your occlusion (bite) out of sync, and threaten your oral wellness by making it more difficult to floss between your teeth. Our Invisalign in Irmo is a revolution in orthodontic care. Instead of messy impression material and using an outside dental lab to make a pair of metal braces, we use digital photos and 3D computer software to design your braces, and state-of-the-art machinery to make them. Each set of aligners plays a part in the overall process. With our Invisalign in Irmo, you’ll wear multiple sets; one every two weeks. You then move on to the next one. Most patients need somewhere between 18 and 36 aligners, with an average treatment time of about 11 months. Of course, this varies by individual. You only need come in for a progress check up on a six week schedule since there are no adjustments to make. And if you like the idea of having freedom to eat any type of food you want, you’ll be glad to know that there are no restrictions with Invisalign. Just take your aligners out and have even sticky, crunchy, and chewy foods.

A brief examination and consultation will determine if you meet the qualifications for our Invisalign in Irmo. Schedule a visit with us right now by reaching out to our office.

Preventive dental care is more valuable than any treatment can be, especially when it comes to the effects of dental plaque and tartar. At Peak Dental, or Irmo dentist will work as your partner in maintaining the well-being of your teeth and gums.

As vital as it is for you to visit our office twice per year, if you don’t take good care of your own oral wellness the rest of the year, you cannot expect the kind of results that you really want. A nutritious diet that includes a limited amount of sugar is an excellent start. Brushing twice per day, first thing in the morning and last thing before bed, along with a daily vigorous flossing combine to do an excellent job of removing plaque. Some, though, can manage to escape the reach of your home oral hygiene by hiding in gum pockets. Eventually, that plaque will harden into tartar, after which there is no effective way to eliminate it other than a professional teeth cleaning. That same process will also stop the progress of early stage gum disease (gingivitis), and reverse any of its effects. If gum disease is allowed to continue unhindered, the inevitable result is that it reaches the advanced stage of periodontitis, which brings with it severe symptoms including receding gums, persistent bad breath, erosion of gum and bone tissue, and possibly even tooth loss. Our Irmo dentist will also be able to find any cavities while they’re still small, with the help of x-rays. A filling placed in a timely fashion can prevent a root canal treatment or a tooth extraction down the road, along with the complications and costs of each.

The good news is that just by contacting us to book an appointment with our Irmo dentist for your twice-yearly exam and cleaning, you can make the future look a lot brighter regarding your oral health.
