Burbank, CA – Burbank-based dentist, Dr. Dino Gharibian, DDS, shares valuable insight about how people can achieve a straighter and more beautiful smile with Invisalign clear aligners. Dr. Dino and his wife, Dr. Angie Terzian, are both dentists and co-owners of DNA Dental Studio.
According to Dr. Dino, Invisalign clear aligners are a more practical and modern solution to traditional metal braces. “These clear aligned fit snugly over teeth and are virtually unnoticeable,” Dr. Dino says, “Each aligner is custom made to your desired smile and helps to correct problems such as crowding, spaces between your teeth, and a variety of irregular biting issues.”
Highlighting the ease of use that Invisalign clear aligners offer, Dr. Dino informs that these custom made aligners can be worn while at work during the day and while sleeping at night. Retainers can be alternated every 1-2 weeks and within an average of 9-15 weeks, patients can achieve straighter and more beautiful smiles.
According to Dr. Dino, Invisalign helps DNA Dental’s patients achieve their desired smile, without the headaches of traditional metal braces. “Our goal is to help out patients look and feel great about themselves,” says Dr. Dino, “We do this by giving them a healthy and beautiful smile.”
In addition to Invisalign’s cosmetic benefits, they also help achieve greater dental and overall health. Countless studies have shown that gum disease (also known as gingivitis and periodontitis) have been linked to increased risks for heart disease, diabetes, and several other systemic complications. “That’s because bacteria can live inside the gums and if they are left untreated and allowed to proliferate, will result in inflammation. This inflammation can then spread to other organs in the body and cause harmful effect to one’s health,” says Dr. Dino, “By having straighter teeth, this reduces the areas where plaque and calculus can build-up in the mouth, thereby reducing the risk of periodontal disease. Although routine dental check-ups should still be a mandatory part of one’s overall health, the benefits of straighter teeth can have significant improvements on one’s health.
Dr. Dino stresses that it’s important to understand Invisalign’s possibilities, and limitations. Invisalign will not be the best solution for every situation. However, when properly used, the before and after photos of Invisalign patients show remarkable results.
