When teeth don’t grow in properly, it can be difficult to keep them clean, which can result in a host of oral care issues including bacterial growth and the development of cavities. Poorly positioned teeth can be a contributing factor to gum disease. It can also exert undue stress on the muscles in the neck, jaw, and face, which are used for chewing and eating. Improper alignment has even been shown to trigger headaches (which can also be relieved once the teeth are corrected).
To avoid these potential oral issues, we encourage you to have your teeth examined by your Sevierville, TN dental team.
If you have issues with improperly positioned teeth, Dr. William Pippin can help confirm if you or someone you love will benefit from orthodontic therapy.
Orthodontics using ClearCorrect
The ClearCorrect system uses a series of transparent plastic retainers to reposition teeth. After your teeth have been thoroughly examined by the Pippin Dental Care team, a computer program is used to generate a plan for the incremental changes to achieve the desired straightening of your teeth.
The ClearCorrect option is ideal for cases where moderate crowding of the teeth has occurred, or moderate spacing exists between teeth, and major repositioning is not indicated, The great thing about the ClearCorrect system is that they are nearly undetectable, and are comfortable to wear. Unlike conventional braces, they can also be removed for brushing and flossing.
You’ll be happy to know that, if you’re considering orthodontic care, ClearCorrect can be used on patients of all ages. We’ll be happy to tell you more. Just give us a call!
