Fairfield, CT Dentist on Overall Benefits of Straight Teeth

DARIEN, CT--(Marketwire - Oct 4, 2012) - Dr. James G. Diette, a practitioner of Fairfield cosmetic dentistry, works to create healthy, beautiful smiles for every patient; however, the benefits of straight teeth extend beyond cosmetic considerations. At Darien Family Dental Care, Dr. Diette says patients who choose Invisalign® to straighten their teeth receive more than a pretty smile.

The cosmetic advantages of Invisalign® are obvious -- straight teeth have become a standard of beauty. The custom-made clear aligners are adjusted and changed over a period of time to create even, straight teeth, eliminating the need to endure years of painful braces. But Dr. Diette points out that a patient's looks are not the only factor to take into account when considering Invisalign®. Crooked teeth can make it difficult to remove bacteria from areas of the mouth where teeth are overcrowded, increasing the chance of gum disease. Overcrowded teeth also accelerate wear on tooth structure, prematurely wearing down the teeth over time. In addition, a misaligned bite can lead to instances of jaw pain and other problems.

Dr. Diette says his patients have been pleased with the results, as well as the added comfort Invisalign® provides compared to traditional braces. The clear bracing system allows patients to enjoy the benefits of straightening their teeth with aligners that are virtually invisible -- as well as removable. Because the Invisalign molds are removable, cleaning the teeth becomes a much easier process compared to more traditional methods of teeth straightening.

The time it takes to see the beneficial results of Invisalign® varies for each individual patient because computer software is used to create custom treatment plans to straighten teeth with a series of aligners. The Fairfield cosmetic dentist stresses that it is also important for patients to wear their aligners as directed in order to stay on track with the estimated treatment time. He adds that he understands some patients are concerned with the cost of Invisalign®. In response, he says his practice offers a variety of payment options to help patients afford a healthy mouth because he believes that an investment in straight teeth can prevent future dental problems, which will ultimately save patients money in the long run.
