At StarBrite Dental
, the Office of Dr. Maryam Seifi, we very much value when our patients take the time to write about their personal experience in our Rockville, MD dentist office.
“I started Invisalign initially as I had teeth that were chipping due to how crowded my teeth were and the way my bite came together. Every time I came for a cleaning,
I was shown how my lower right tooth specifically was cracking more and more from the stress, and that meant I would end up needing a crown.
I also had several other things going on with my teeth/jaw- these were things I hadn’t put together as having anything to do with my teeth crowding or my bite. I was seeing the hygienist every 3 months for cleanings as I had signs of gum disease developing. I would grind my teeth at night and wake up with jaw aches. I would actually wake my husband up and he used to tell me all the time I “chomp my teeth in my sleep.” I used to get migraine headaches regularly – sometimes every couple weeks. I used to get jaw tightness and pains and every so often had troubles actually opening my mouth without getting severe pain.
My Invisalign process took me roughly 1 ½ years. About a year into it, our hygienist put me on regular 6 month cleanings and told me my gum pockets were now 1’s and 2’s (in regular terms – that means my gums are now perfect and healthy and I am NOT going to need any treatment for gum issues).
I also realized recently that it has been over a YEAR since I have had any migraine headaches. A major plus that I was not expecting.
My jaw pains and tightness ceased almost immediately and I have not had any TMJ issues since starting Invisalign.
And last– the results are just awesome. When the staff took my pictures today to show the before and after shots I was amazed. Along with all the above health benefits, my smile actually looks amazing!
Thank you Doctor Seifi! I see all the miracles you produce every day and am so glad I have had the benefit of being one of them.” ~ K.R., Rockville, MD
