Why Orthodontic Treatment With Invisalign Goes Beyond Straighter Teeth

When you think of orthodontics you usually think of two things: straighter, more attractive teeth.

You’re right. But there’s more to orthodontic treatment than your smile appearance (though that’s certainly a valid point).

Invisalign®️ clear aligners are doubly effective. They straighten your teeth (in less time than standard braces) plus they have a number of health benefits.

Is perfection overrated?

It might surprise you to know that straight, healthy looking teeth can be deceiving. The keyword is healthy-looking.

There’s more to oral health than appearance. The greater benefit of Invisalign is what happens to your oral health as result of straight, properly aligned teeth.

 What you might not know about Invisalign

1-Improved tooth and gum health

Problems occur when your teeth are out of alignment. You might not notice them initially.

Tooth decay and gum disease are often linked to having misaligned or crooked teeth. Oral bacteria can multiply in the spaces that are created when your teeth are out of alignment.

This leads to oral health problems such as periodontal (gum) disease, tooth decay, and cavities.

Invisalign moves your teeth into proper alignment over time. Straighter teeth means less space for oral bacteria to invade.

2-Less lifestyle impact

Face it, braces impact your lifestyle. Wires and brackets can be uncomfortable plus they more easily hold food particles that, if not removed, can lead to decay beneath.

Invisalign aligners are removable. This gives you the ease of eating and doing your daily oral hygiene without the hassle or health risks.

You can experience overall lifestyle improvement with Invisalign clear aligners. The progress you make towards straighter, healthier teeth increases your motivation to prioritize your oral health.
