Do you regularly wake up with a headache, jaw pain, ear ache, or the feeling you can’t open your mouth all the way? You may be suffering from a common oral health problem known as bruxism, the unconscious grinding and clenching of teeth. It may not seem like a big deal, but untreated, this condition can be detrimental to oral health. Teeth can wear, chip, and break, the temporomandibular joints (TMJ) in the jaw are used excessively leading to strain, and patients may even experience hearing loss. If you think you may be experiencing bruxism, the skilled dentist and team at Virginia Dentistry by Design can help.

For years, patients who wanted to correct misaligned teeth depended on metal brackets and wires to shift teeth into alignment. These traditional braces systems are effective and precise, but they don’t always look or feel great. At Virginia Dentistry by Design, we offer a variety of orthodontic treatment options, and we’re sure we can find one that works for any patient. Invisalign is one of our many popular orthodontic treatment options, and image conscious patients love the subtle look.
Why Choose Invisalign
Traditional braces have been a reliable method of aligning smiles for decades, and they are still a great option for any patient. However, for those who are more image-conscious, too busy for numerous orthodontic appointments, or who struggle with tooth decay or gum disease, Invisalign may be a better option. Some of the benefits of orthodontic treatment using the Invisalign system include:

A 2009 study conducted by researchers through the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation for health philanthropy showed a direct correlation between unemployment and decreased preventive dentistry visits. A 2015 study conducted in Finland reported a correlation between unemployment and poor oral health including increased missing teeth, decayed teeth, and deep periodontal pockets. The evidence is pretty clear that those who are unemployed struggle to receive the dental care they need, but even more startling may be the 2006 study that revealed people who had one or more missing teeth, receding gums, or decaying teeth who had been on unemployment in California for months or years were much more likely to get hired after receiving the dental care they needed. Researchers were unsure whether this change was due to the way employers perceived these individuals, or the increased self-confidence people felt after correcting dental damage. Either way, the research is clear, successful people are more likely to have beautiful smiles. At Virginia Dentistry by Design, we know that cosmetic dentistry is about improving so much more than just appearances. For patients who hide their smiles and cover their mouths when they talk, cosmetic dentistry can be life changing.
