Top Dentist Issues Opinion on Health Benefits of Cutting-Edge Orthodontics

New York City Dentist Dr. Jan Linhart reveals health benefits of orthodontics

New York, NY (Vocus) June 25, 2009 -- Dr. Jan Linhart, a top-rated dentist with offices in Manhattan, claims that orthodontic work can be beneficial not only superficially, but also to a patient’s health.

"While orthodontic procedures such as Invisalign and iBraces are extraordinarily effective at creating a beautiful smile, and this can have an important impact on a patient’s confidence, dental care is ultimately about health," states Dr. Linhart. “When someone’s back teeth do not mesh in just the right way, this can lead to problems." He further explains that uneven wear can result in muscle stress and pain in the jaw, and, if the bite is bad enough, could even ultimately lead to tooth loss because of its effect upon the gums and bone structure. Orthodontics, he claims, can help prevent deterioration of this degree.

"It’s true that a misaligned bite is often not severe enough to lead to such extreme problems, and in such cases orthodontics are often recommended for more aesthetic reasons," says Dr. Linhart. "But even so, properly aligned teeth are much easier to care for." Overcrowded teeth, Dr. Linhart clarifies, are more difficult to clean. "Toothbrush bristles reach less of the surface area, and it’s much harder to floss between teeth that fit together too tightly." Alternately, too much spacing between teeth leaves pockets in which food and bacteria can collect. States Dr. Linhart, "When food and bacteria build up in the mouth, bad breath can result, not to mention excessive plaque and, ultimately, more severe oral health problems."

Different problems can result when a patient has an underbite or an overbite, according to Dr. Linhart. "These are misalignments best treated in young patients—one reason why our offices offer Invisalign Teen. They can represent detrimental facial imbalances and lead to tooth chipping or other dental injuries, especially in active, athletic young people."

"It is for all these reasons," says Dr. Linhart, "that orthodontics can benefit a patient’s health. And it certainly doesn’t hurt that they also result in a more attractive smile. As an added benefit, orthodontic technology today has advanced to such a degree that a patients can watch their smiles improve throughout the process without having their teeth marred by big, ugly metal braces."
