INVISALIGN

Whether you need to straighten your teeth for aesthetic concerns or correct a bite and alignment for function, Invisalign is the industry leader and Dr. Moran's choice for clear orthodontic alignment. Dr. Moran ensures all our patients finish their treatment with their teeth in the position that is the best for them aesthetically and functionally.

 

The way your teeth come together and the alignment of your teeth affects the health of your teeth and your gums. Having an uneven bite can cause excess wear on specific teeth and cause localized areas of gum recession. Crowding and overlapping teeth can cause gum inflammation and recession due to difficult in cleaning crowded teeth. If crowding or a poor bite is not fixed during the early stages, it can continue to get worse and can cause further issues.

  • Why do I need to floss?
    Brushing cleans all surfaces of your teeth EXCEPT the surfaces in between your teeth. The only thing that cleans between your teeth is flossing. If you don’t floss at least once a day, plaque and bacteria build up between your teeth and into your gums, causing a higher risk for you to get cavities in between your teeth and gum disease.
  • How often should you floss your teeth?
    Everyday! ​We only ask for you to floss once a day. It takes just 2 extra minutes of your day. It doesn’t matter when or where you floss as long as you floss once a day.
  • How do I know if my gums are healthy?
    Just remember that healthy gums don’t bleed. If your’re asking yourself why your gums bleed a lot, this indicates the presence of gingivitis. When you have gingivitis, your gums bleed when you brush or floss your teeth, this means that you’re gums are inflamed. ​If you brush twice a day, floss once a day, and see us at least every 6 months, it gives you a better chance of having healthy gums.
  • Which toothbrush is better, electric or manual toothbrushes?"
    Both are good. We do however, recommend an electric toothbrush as the vibrating and rotating bristles allow for a more thorough cleaning without extra scrubbing motions. Sonicare and Oral B are both the leading brands in electric toothbrushes.
  • What can cause my gums to recede?
    There are many factors that can cause gum recession, including brushing too hard, your bite (malocclusion), misalignment of your teeth, chronic inflammation of your gums, and a genetic susceptibility to gum recession. We will help you do whatever it takes to treat your gum recession by having our specialist perform gum grafts and/or prevent further recession by determining and eliminating factors that is causing the recession.
