Invisalign is a great way to straighten misaligned teeth that have shifted over time without having to go through wearing unsightly metal braces. Straight teeth may be more aesthetically pleasing, but there are also a number of health benefits to having beautiful straight teeth. When you have straight teeth, you will have a more confident smile and improved dental health. Invisalign not only gives you a beautiful smile, but reduces your risk for gum disease, cavities, and other oral conditions.
Invisalign Leads To Healthier Gums And teeth
Red and red swollen gums often occur when teeth are misaligned. Teeth that are too close together are difficult to keep clean, causing gums to become inflamed. Unfortunately, this is also often the signs of periodontal disease. When teeth are aligned correctly, gums are flush firmly around teeth without leaving spaces open to infection or being overcrowded to the point of decay and pain. Invisalign is a comfortable clear aligner system which gently shifts your teeth toward a healthier position.
Oral Health Is Connected To Your Overall Health
While everyone knows that maintaining good oral health habits helps you avoid bad breath and cavities, poor oral health can actually lead to or put you at risk for a number of far more serious health complications. These include diabetes, stroke, heart disease, and pneumonia.
Invisalign Is Easier To Clean Than Braces
Braces can be painful, and difficult to keep clean. They cause bad breath and tooth decay because they are a food trap. The food that gets trapped in the wires and brackets can contribute to plaque build up and eventually painful tooth decay. Invisalign is removable, making them easy to clean. They do not interrupt your normal oral health routine or put your teeth at risk.
