Deep Relaxation from the Dentist 12020 Relies On

October 7, 2015

Woman relaxing on the porch thanks to the dentist 12020 relies onNo matter how much we may try to avoid it, life demands routine. Wake up, work, lunch, gym, errands, home, repeat. Does that sound familiar? Whether you’re typing away at a desk, speaking to groups of people or using your muscles at work, your body gets used to moving in a certain way, and that results in repetitive motions that don’t do your muscles any favors.

In fact, we often hold stress in the face, clenching the jaw muscles all day and night. That’s not a good pattern to get into, but it’s next to impossible to break the habit on your own. At the Ballston Spa, NY dental practice of Dr. Frederick Dreher, we emphasize the connection between your mouth and the rest of your body — and we know that when your jaw is tense, it affects the rest of your body in a big way. That’s why we take the Trager Approach to improve your overall wellbeing by focusing on your oral health first.

For many patients, it seems like every picture is just another chance for people to see their crooked or gapped teeth. At our practice, we want every patient to smile with confidence. If your teeth are irregularly aligned or spaced, it’s hard to feel your best, but if the only alternative is the discomfort and hassle of braces, you’re willing to live with a less than perfect smile. Invisalign clear braces may be a better option to straighten your teeth with less discomfort, expense, and time. Find out more about how Invisalign can help you smile confidently. Call Dr. Fred Dreher in Ballston Spa, NY to schedule an Invisalign consultation today.

Invisalign – Straighten Your Smile, Ballston Spa

One of the most popular cosmetic treatment options at any dental practice is Invisalign. For nearly 20 years, Invisalign has offered a teeth alignment option for patients who have sensitivity to metals, suffer from sensitive teeth or gums, can’t invest the time required to complete alignment with traditional braces, and those who simply don’t want to deal with a metallic smile. Invisalign is great option for working professionals as it is virtually unnoticeable, and requires much fewer dental office visits to complete the process.

Rather than utilizing a system of brackets and wires to shift teeth into alignment, Invisalign uses clear alignment trays. If you and Dr. Dreher determine you’re a good candidate for Invisalign, you’ll develop a treatment plan and a customized series of alignment trays will be created just for you. Simply wear these trays, remove and replace every two weeks and in less than a year, reveal your beautiful smile. In the meant time, Invisalign aligners are almost completely invisible. Because they’re removable, you’re able to continue your daily oral hygiene routine unimpeded, and the alignment trays are easily cleaned and reinserted. Unlike traditional braces, you don’t have to worry about giving up your favorite foods. Simply remove the trays during meals and enjoy all your favorite foods.
