Making Braces/Aligners Part of Your Gum Disease Care Plan Marietta, GA
Orthodontic Treatment

Are you experiencing symptoms of aggressive gum disease, periodontitis, or periodontal disease? Teeth straightening might be the last thing on your mind. However, braces and clear aligners can help you regain control of your oral health and decrease the severity of your infection when used in combination with your periodontal treatment plan. Here’s why:

Straighter Teeth Are Easier To Clean

Statistics show that straight teeth are less susceptible to periodontitis and tooth decay. Why? Because they are easier to clean than teeth that are crowded or crooked.

Periodontal infections often persist around crooked teeth. An orthodontist can help you straighten your smile in those areas, making your oral hygiene routine more effective on a daily basis. When you can clean those spaces better, your gum health will naturally improve.

Managing Hygiene in Hard-to-Reach Spaces

Are there specific problem spots in your mouth? Has your Marietta dentist or hygienist mentioned that there are pockets around certain teeth? These areas can worsen with time, especially if they’re already hard to clean.

You might want to consider using clear, removable aligners for straightening your teeth. This can help prevent the progression of disease as they allow you to maintain a more effective oral hygiene routine. Clear aligners are easy to clean since there are no fixed wires or brackets. This makes them a great choice for anyone who already has gingivitis or shows early symptoms of periodontitis.
