New York, NY (PRWEB) October 17, 2017
Dr. Alexander Volchonok of AVPeriodontics recently achieved his certification in Invisalign® orthodontics. As a board-certified periodontist, Dr. Volchonok is combining this certification with his periodontal expertise to educate patients on the link between orthodontics and periodontics. Invisalign uses removable aligners to straighten teeth, providing an advantage when it comes to oral health and periodontal care. Dr. Volchonok helps patients affected by gum disease find out if they can benefit from Invisalign in New York, NY.
Crowded or crooked teeth can make oral hygiene routines difficult. Even if patients choose to straighten their teeth with traditional orthodontics, the metal brackets and wires can create a challenge for keeping teeth and gums clean during treatment. Without proper care, the onset of gum disease and gum recession is more likely, as bacteria and plaque gather under the brackets and begin affecting the gums. Cleaning teeth and gums is much easier with the use of Invisalign due to the removable aligners. Patients are able to remove the clear, plastic aligners to allow for adequate brushing and flossing in order to prevent gum disease from developing.
Dr. Volchonok is also able to use Invisalign as a form of orthodontics for those already affected by periodontal disease. Gum disease and bone loss can make traditional orthodontics an unlikely solution, but with the gentle and minimally invasive nature of Invisalign, tooth alignment is still a possibility. Dr. Volchonok can combine Invisalign with periodontal care to assist those who were told they are not a candidate for braces. The benefits of orthodontic treatment include:
- Straight teeth
- Easier at-home cleaning
- Reduced risk of gum disease
- Stronger bite
- Healthy gum line
Along with being removable for easier cleaning of teeth and gums, Invisalign is also a discreet method of tooth alignment, being virtually invisible while in the mouth. Those seeking Invisalign in New York, NY, can contact Dr. Volchonok for a consultation to find out if they are a candidate.
