Healthy Mouth Tips

If you were told that there are many health benefits from having straight teeth, would you believe it? It is true and there are many ways that you can have better dental health because of straight teeth too. According to the American Dental Association, straight teeth allow a patient a better chance at overall good oral health. When you think about it, a straight smile cannot be perfect if it is not healthy at all. With Invisalign, you will have the confidence you need to smile brightly and reduce your risk for gum disease and tooth decay. If you would like to discuss your options for Invisalign, contact our La Habra office now to schedule an appointment with Dr. Cho.

Teeth Are Easier to Clean

One of the many challenges with having braces is that you cannot remove them. When you cannot remove them, the wires and brackets collect food particles and this leads to the buildup of plaque and tooth decay can occur. If you have Invisalign aligners, you will find that they are removable and you can take them out to brush and floss as you normally would.

Healthy Gums and Teeth

Bleeding, tender, and swollen gums are often the result of teeth that are not properly cleaned or teeth that sit too close or too far apart from each other. The symptoms you experience can be an indication that gum disease is present. When the teeth are crowded or spaced too far apart, the gums do not protect the tooth the way they need to, which can lead to serious issues later on down the road. Invisalign can help to gradually move your teeth closer together and straighten them out, so you never have to worry about little to no protection from your gums.

Overall Health of Your Body

When you think about your teeth, you probably did not think that they are a window to your health. They are. A healthy smile means you are likely healthy and vice versa with an unhealthy smile. If you take care of your teeth, you are more inclined to take better care of the rest of you.

Tooth decay and gum disease is a direct result of bacteria in the mouth that is not removed. This then leads to bad breath, sores in the mouth, tender gums, and more. The ADA wants patients to know that oral infections can have serious lasting effects and can cause heart disease, pneumonia, diabetes, and more.

Invisalign will make your overall oral health better and it allows you to care for your teeth much easier and better. You can reduce the risk of problems in no time and all aligners are able to be removed too. Straight teeth will facilitate better health and you will find that you can talk and chew better too.

Dr. Cho is Awesome

New patient for examination and cleaning: Arrived early 11:48 am for 12:00pm appointment, had paperwork filled out by 12:01, called to the back at 12:16. Had full x- rays, photographs -in my opinion unnecessary - and a panoramic x-ray - which was a bad image as the bottom half of the image was obstructed by the lead apron. The dentist exam included deep poking of gums to check for gum pockets, heavy hands noted toward the back teeth which resulted in bleeding - I brush and floss regularly and never bleed from flossing, however, dentist recommendation was “gum treatment, ” which is essentially a deep cleaning under local anesthesia in all 4 quadrants, this is not fully covered by the insurance, I was quoted $600 out of pocket. I declined stating “I will not pay that.” The regular cleaning was not performed as I declined the deep cleaning, no other option. Just felt like the deep cleaning should be reserved for people with symptomatic gum disease, including symptoms such as bleeding or red gums - both of which I do not experience. I’m definitely getting a second opinion and recommend always getting a second opinion if a dentist readily “recommends” a “gum treatment” on the very first visit, which may be unnecessary and lead to unwarranted invasive treatment with possible complications.

Great personal care

Dr. Kenneth Cho is a dentist that we trust. My family and I have been going to his office for 20+ years. He was the first dentist for both of my children (now collage age), and they still go to him. He can take care of every need for oral health including braces. No need to go from place to place, and everyone in the office is friendly and helpful.
