Not only can Invisalign aligners straighten your teeth, but they can also fix that pain in your neck, face or jaw! Here, our dentists explain how the clear custom aligners can help ease your pain.
Orthodontic treatment is not only about giving you a pretty smile, it is also an effective way to improve your overall health so you can live without pain.
Those who suffer from sore facial muscles or from the effects of teeth grinding can benefit from Invisalign both during and after treatment.
Throughout the treatment process wearing an Invisalign aligner can help relieve symptoms of Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD).
TMD is a common jaw condition that can cause pain in the joints, clicking and popping, misaligned jaws, inefficient and painful chewing, or even the inability to chew properly.
Invisalign aligners can help by deprograming the muscles involved in TMD helping to lessen the painful symptoms.
Once treatment has been completed patients will have an aligned smile and a better bite which will allow the jaw to open and close freely, without causing deterioration or pain.
