Straight teeth contribute to good health for patients in Citrus Heights

Citrus Heights Straight teeth contribute to good health

Amazing advances have been made in cosmetic dentistry in the last 50 years. Today we can whiten teeth, contour gums, and disguise a variety of imperfections. Yet no smile can look truly radiant if the mouth isn’t vital. Did you know that straight teeth are healthier as well as attractive? Citrus Heights patients are getting beautiful smiles, and improved oral health and whole body wellness with Invisalign.

Healthier mouth

Teeth that are crowded, twisted, turned, or have gaps create food traps. These spots are difficult to keep clean, even with excellent home oral hygiene. Bacteria move into the crevices to feast on bits of food debris, and they multiply quickly. At any given time, there are about 20 billion microbes in your mouth, because they double in number five times every 24 hours. As bacteria eat, they excrete acids, which irritate gum tissue and erode tooth enamel.

Invisalign moves teeth with low force. Each patient is different, but a typical Invisalign treatment plan takes about a year. At its conclusion, teeth are straight and attractive, and bacterial habitat is significantly reduced. As an added benefit, Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can brush and floss normally during treatment.

Improved wellness

There is a growing body of evidence linking the strains of bacteria that cause gum disease to grave systemic illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, respiratory disease, and some forms of cancer. Individuals with straight teeth have less risk of developing gum disease.

Emotional balance

Smiling triggers additional physical and emotional benefits, including reduced stress and a boost to the immune system. When you feel confident that your smile is attractive, you are more likely to use it, easing tension, improving relationships, and fostering a healthy self-image.

With Invisalign clear aligners, patients in the Citrus Heights area are discovering a host of unexpected health benefits from straight teeth. Call Sacramento Natural Dentistry today at (916) 823-8585 to schedule an Invisalign consultation.

I want to give a recommendation for a natural dentist to anyone seeking a holistic leaning dentist, or any dentistry at all for that matter. I had a dental emergency due to several cavities that ended up being put on hold because of the virus shutdown. Living in Tahoe, the options of which dentists I had to choose from was short, and all of them were closed still. Over the last month I wound up with severe tooth pain from the bacteria in the cavities that very nearly became systemic. Two days ago I searched google for a natural dentist in Sacramento and the first one that was open and actually answered their phone was the good people at Sacramento Natural Dentistry. I explained to them my predicament and they got me an appointment yesterday at two o'clock. (Next day appointment after being closed for two months!) After taking x-rays and seeing the severity of the condition, I was offered a choice in treatment options. Yes you heard that right, a choice as to which procedures best fit my life situation. After a conversation about my options, some lidocaine was administered and 3 cavities were filled with precision and amazing efficiency followed by an extraction of a tooth that we determined was beyond being worth saving. The staff was helpful and kind and treated me with respect. The dentist who performed the procedure, Dr. Darryl Azouz who has twenty two years experience in dentistry, was patient and attentive, professional and very personable. I immediately noticed his authenticity and genuine care for others. Throughout the procedure we conversed and I really must say that overall it was the most pleasant time I've ever had in a dentists chair. Any of you out there who are looking for good holistic dental care at a fair price as well as a heart based approach, I can tell you that he and his team were well worth my drive from Tahoe for a visit. I am grateful to have found them and will return for future dental work without hesitation. Keep safe and many blessings.

I love this office! Dr. Azouz is the best dentist my family has ever had. I have had nothing but positive experiences every time I have had anything done in this office. I have referred several friends and family and all have been so happy with Dr. Azouz. My kids now love going to the dentist and I appreciate how good Dr. Azouz and the staff are with them. This is an office you will not be disappointed in, and is great for all ages!
