Does Invisalign Work?

Does Invisalign Really Work?

When planning to get Invisalign, patient compliance is just as important as doctor experience. I, Dr. Ammar Taimish, have gone to many conferences for Invisalign and have given it to numerous patients at Norton Dental Downtown.  If I decided you're a good candidate and you wear your aligners as instructed (minimum 20-22 hours/day) you should have a favorable result. Invisalign, is the best way to go, they are comfortable, really easy to apply, and no one would know you are wearing them.

gingivities.jpgCauses, incidence, and risk factors

Gingivitis is a form of periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is inflammation and infection that destroys the gum tissues that support the teeth, including the periodontal ligaments, and the tooth sockets.
Gingivitis is due to the long-term effects of plaque deposits (simple put no brushing and flossing). Plaque is a sticky material made of bacteria, mucus, and food debris that develops on the exposed parts of the teeth. It is a major cause of tooth decay.
