Straight teeth look great but straight teeth also give you a healthy smile. Here are some of the health benefits of orthodontic treatment, which you can get with an Invisalign smile:
Self-confidence – After your Invisalign treatment, you may find your self-confidence boosted by your new smile and the change in your appearance. Some people even feel that way during treatment. As you know, smiling has many benefits. It can help you make a strong impression in lots of different social situations – at school, at work, or at a party.
Healthier gums – When your teeth are crowded or too widely spaced, you can get swollen gums and redness – signs of periodontal disease. All of that can make you less likely to smile, even when you want to make a good impression, like in photos or at an interview. Clinical studies show that when teeth are straight, the gums fit tighter around the teeth, which can lead to better periodontal health. Your gum health may improve after your Invisalign treatment.
Less stress on joints – Misaligned teeth can cause painful stress on supporting bone and jaw joints, as well as cause abnormal wear on your teeth, which can lead to even more problems. The good news is that Invisalign can help solve those problems by properly aligning your teeth.

I really had fun going to the orthodontist when I was in braces. Everyone in the office was happy and enjoyed their work. This and the fact that my father was an oral surgeon inspired me to become a dentist and eventually an orthodontist. I like solving puzzles, thinking, planning and organizing all of which I am able to do as an orthodontist. More importantly, I enjoy getting to know people and making them smile. Learn more

I really care about the people who trust their teeth to me. When you come to Shoreline Orthodontics for treatment you are more than a patient, you are part of the family. Your relationship with everyone at Shoreline will extend beyond the office and beyond your time in treatment. Learn more

I have always wanted to be an orthodontist. While visiting my family home a few years ago, my husband came across an old school project of mine from grade three. In it, we were asked to describe what we wanted to do when we grew up. My answer was “I want to be an orthodontist because I like to make people smile”. Years have gone by and it turns out my answer is still the same. What I have learned now is that what we do at Shoreline is so much more than making people smile – it is helping people find their confidence – and that lasts a lifetime. Learn more

I grew up with a father that is a very passionate orthodontist in South Africa and was fascinated by the career from a young age. My interest might have made my braces experience more difficult for him, but I loved every moment of it. While studying for my dental boards in Australia, I shadowed an orthodontist and realized that was where my passion lay. Learn more

Growing up, I needed extensive dental care due to my addiction to candy (and possibly lack of brushing). These experiences helped me recognize the tremendous long-term impact dental professionals can make. After practicing general dentistry for a few years, I decided to become an orthodontist, stemming from my passion for problem-solving and making people smile. Learn more
