Invisalign® offers one of the most discreet, comfortable, and effective ways to correct common orthodontic concerns for straighter teeth and a more beautiful smile. While the aesthetic benefits of Invisalign® are some of the most prominent, there are a number of ways this treatment can improve oral health, as well.
Teeth that are misaligned or overcrowded can cause the surrounding gums to become red and swollen. Invisalign®’s ability to move the teeth into proper alignment can help the gums maintain a more secure fit around the teeth, allowing for stronger protection against the development of periodontal (gum) disease and other concerns. Plus, by straightening the teeth and improving bite issues, Invisalign® can be a way for some patients to reduce pain and other symptoms associated with TMJ Disorder.
Making daily oral hygiene routines easier to perform is yet another potential health advantage of Invisalign®. Orthodontic problems can make it challenging to brush and floss as effectively, which can lead to gum disease and tooth decay. If gum disease is left untreated, it can create serious risks to one’s oral and general health. Teeth that are correctly aligned can help patients perform their oral hygiene regimens in more precise and thorough ways.
Invisalign® can also reduce wear on the teeth that can be caused by crowding and misalignment issues, and it can help many patients improve their ability to speak and chew. All of these potential health benefits are in addition to the many ways Invisalign® can improve aesthetics and help you obtain a beautiful new smile!
