Incorporating Orthodontics into Your Perio Treatment Marietta, GA
Woman Pointing at Her New Braces

If you’re someone who has experienced symptoms of gum disease (aka periodontitis or periodontal disease) you may have other things on your mind than orthodontics. But truth be told, incorporating braces or clear aligners into your periodontal treatment plan could help you regain control over your oral health and reduce the severity of your infection.

Here’s why:

Straighter Teeth are Easier to Clean

Statistically speaking, straight teeth are less prone to diseases like tooth decay and periodontitis. Why? Because they’re easier to clean and less likely to harbor bacteria between them, compared to teeth that are leaning or crowded.

When periodontal infections start to pop up around teeth that are crooked, you spend more time brushing and flossing them to eliminate the inflammation. But working with an orthodontist to straighten those teeth can make your oral hygiene efforts more effective!

A Smart Investment

Do you have a few trouble areas in your mouth? Has your family dentist or hygienist mentioned “pockets” around specific teeth? If those areas are challenging to clean, they may only get worse.

Why not consider wearing clear, removable aligners to straighten your teeth? That way you can minimize disease progression and enjoy an easier oral hygiene routine throughout the process. With clear aligners, there are no brackets and wires to clean around, so it’s great for adults who struggle with gingivitis or early stages of periodontitis.
