While having straight pearly whites will definitely inspire you to share your smile with the world, there is a deeper layer of health benefits beneath the aesthetic benefits. Your overall health has roots in the quality of your oral health. When your teeth overlap, there is a higher chance that food, bacteria, and plaque will build up in those tough to reach places. Straightening your teeth makes keeping your teeth and gums clean and healthy so much easier.
Inflammation, bacteria, and poor oral hygiene cause gum disease and if left untreated, the affects can spread beyond your mouth. Inflammation is the leading cause of most degenerative diseases, as we have discussed previously. Oral infections that are left untreated can spread and lead to severe maladies such as pneumonia and heart disease. This all stems from inadequate oral hygiene.
Think how easy it would be to brush and floss if your teeth were lined up and the tight spaces between your teeth were perfectly vertical. Another thing to consider is how much easier it is to keep your teeth and gums clean when you can remove your aligners during the straightening process instead of trying to work around a mouth full of braces. Invisalign makes oral hygiene easy during and after your treatment.
When your teeth are aligned, your mouth is better prepared to fight against potential periodontal problems.
Invisalign also makes straightening your teeth discreet, comfortable, and convenient. You can take them out to eat, drink, brush, and floss, but you will barely even notice they are on once you get used to wearing them initially. Invisalign is ideal for a number of different causes and is perfect for adults and teenagers. Invisalign is usually a much faster treatment approach than braces and is far more comfortable.
