You may be surprised to know that the benefits of having straight teeth extend far beyond a beautiful and confident smile. Apart from the aesthetic benefits of braces, there are also a number of health benefits that patients will experience. In many cases, patients with orthodontic issues may not be aware of the dangers associated with improper or misaligned teeth. As a result, patients can receive a wealth of benefits, ranging from personal confidence to improved dental and overall health.
Common Issues With Crowded Teeth
Crowded or crooked teeth, or ones that overlap each other, are a great opportunity for bacteria to firmly embed themselves in those hard to reach gaps and overlaps. The avid teeth cleaner may have difficulty manipulating the tooth brush or floss into those tight spaces. Bacteria cause tooth decay and periodontal disease. Left untreated, tooth decay and periodontal disease can cause bad breath, mouth sores, tender or bleeding gums and even tooth loss.
Besides Straight Teeth, What Are The Benefits Of Invisalign?
Healthier Teeth And Gums
Teeth that are crowded or too widely spaced can lead to swollen, red gums, which are signs of periodontal disease. When teeth are properly aligned, gums fit more securely around the teeth. This creates the strongest and healthiest defense against potential periodontal problems. With Invisalign, having an attractive, confident smile and reducing your risk for tooth decay and gum disease go hand in hand. Comfortable and clear Invisalign aligners gently and gradually move your teeth into the proper position, without unattractive brackets and wires.
Difficulty cleaning your teeth often leads to plaque buildup. With Invisalign, the aligners are removable, so it is easy to continue brushing and flossing your teeth for optimal plaque removal.
No Embarrassing Metal Braces
Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible with the added benefit of being removable and comfortable. No metal wires and quick, beautiful, healthy results!
