October is National Dental Hygiene Month.
National Hygiene Month is about raising awareness around proper hygiene and brushing and flossing technique. But it’s also about recognizing the tremendous work that hygienists do to screen for dental disease, teach us about prevention, and perform a physical cleaning of the teeth and gums that isn’t just a “cleaning” – but a necessity to prevent diseases of both the mouth and the body.
In honor of National Hygiene Month, I’m offering my patients a discounted rate on Invisalign, which not only straightens the teeth but, in doing so, makes keeping your teeth clean (and disease free) easier for the rest of your life.

3 Ways Invisalign Can Aid Oral Hygiene
1. Healthier Gums
Invisalign aligners are removable so you can brush and floss normally, which can help prevent periodontal disease and tooth decay. Research has shown that gingival health may improve during Invisalign treatment.
2. Easier Teeth Cleanings
The chances of having plaque retention, tooth decay, and periodontal disease can be reduced with properly positioned teeth. For more on how this works, see my article on the top ten reasons to get Invisalign. For a visual explanation of how straightening teeth with Invisalign improves oral hygiene, click here (it’s a cheesy video, but the information is spot on).
3. Less Stress
Properly aligned teeth are less stressful on the supporting bone and provide better function. Invisalign offers an alternative to aggressive, restorative solutions for orthodontic problems.
I’m offering a $500 matching downpayment with monthly payments as low as $220/month, which might be lower depending on what your insurance covers. You’ll also get free teeth whitening with your Invisalign treatment.
This offer lasts through November 8, 2012. To schedule an appointment, call (408) 737-2100 or email our office manager James: james AT askthedentist DOT com.

Since Ask the Dentist has readers from all over the world, I have to clarify that you must be located within the San Francisco Bay Area to qualify for this special offer. Invisalign requires several in-office visits and, unfortunately, I can only see patients at my office in Sunnyvale, California.
