What Can Happen if a Tooth Infection is Left Untreated

When you have a bacterial infection in your mouth, you run the risk of developing a tooth abscess. An abscess is a pocket of puss that develops somewhere on one (or several) of your teeth. When you have an abscess, you’ll notice that your teeth are very sensitive to hot or cold. You may have a severe toothache, sensitivity to pressure when biting, and a fever and swelling.

When choosing between traditional braces or Edmonton Invisalign dentists, the most prominent difference is that braces are permanent fixtures in your mouth, and Invisalign is not. Since Invisalign consists of removable trays that only need to be in the mouth for approximately 22 hours a day, you can actually remove them to eat, which means you don’t need to change your diet. Traditional braces, being mounted to your teeth, will require special care when it comes to foods, as well as proper maintenance.

Luckily, Invisalign treatment is completely removable. This makes keeping the teeth clean throughout treatment almost too easy. While eliminating the gaps, spaces and straightening the teeth, your child will also be keeping every area clean along the way! Once they’re done brushing and flossing, they can simply pop them right back in.

Misaligned teeth don’t necessarily equal poor oral health, but your child may be at a higher risk of developing tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral infections if the problem is not closely monitored. Invisalign will ensure the teeth are being correctly moved, and the convenience of being able to remove it whenever needed will help to maintain your child’s oral health long term!

Adding attachments has become normal with invisalign teen Edmonton ; this can make the trays more noticeable, reducing the “invisibility” perk they offer slightly. Your new trays may be uncomfortable, even painful due to the pressure on your teeth, but are still more comfortable than braces.

While it is nice to be able to easily remove your trays for eating purposes, this can also prove to be inconvenient at times; if you’re eating out at a restaurant, for example, on a date, or a guest in someone’s home. (The new Invisalign patient kit will help make that more luxurious)
