The Health Benefits of Straightening Your Teeth with Invisalign®
- Posted on: Feb 25 2015
Invisalign is an increasingly popular alternative to traditional braces that can effectively straighten your teeth for a symmetrical smile. The benefits of a well-aligned smile are not confined to an improved appearance, however; having your teeth in proper alignment also has positive impacts on your oral health.
The Grand Rapids cosmetic dentists at A Life of Smiles are proud to offer Invisalign to teens and adults suffering from common bite conditions such as overbite, underbite, crossbite, open bite, gapped teeth and crowded teeth. To schedule your personal consultation and learn if Invisalign is right for you, please call A Life of Smiles at 616.458.0631 today.
Teeth Alignment Issues
Teeth that are crowded or otherwise unevenly spaced can allow excess plaque to accumulate in areas that are difficult to clean with brushing and flossing. This plaque buildup can eventually lead to premature tooth decay and contribute to periodontal disease. Many bite conditions and teeth alignment issues can also result in early erosion of your teeth enamel and play a role in progressive problems with how you bite, chew and speak.
Invisalign also makes it easy for you to maintain good oral health during treatment. Standard metal braces can trap food particles, allowing plaque to take hold while your teeth are being straightened.
Easy to Use and Care for
The clear, custom-made aligners used in Invisalign treatment are removable for meals and brushing, which allows you to adhere to your regular diet and dental hygiene routine. The aligners themselves are also simple to clean with brushing and rinsing in lukewarm water, or with the Invisalign cleaning kit.
Straightening your teeth with Invisalign can help you achieve a smile as healthy as it is beautiful. But don’t just take our word for it. See the effects of Invisalign for yourself in our Before-and-After Gallery.
