Crooked teeth can cause an awkward bite and can provide spaces for bacteria to accumulate and proliferate which can lead to cavities, tooth loss, and periodontal problems. Aside from the obvious aesthetic benefits of straightening your teeth, Invisalign can also alleviate problems caused by misaligned teeth such as jaw strain, trauma to bones and joints of mastication, chipping, grinding, and uneven or abnormal wear on teeth.
Robust Gum Tissue
Crooked or misaligned teeth can have a negative impact on the overall health of the gum tissues that support them. Teeth can even become loose and leave a “pocket” where bacteria or food particles can become trapped and invite gum disease and tooth decay. Crowded teeth can also cause gum tissue to become painful, red, and swollen which can cause a wide variety of problems from tooth loss to gingivitis.
A Cleaner Mouth
The Invisalign patients at our office are able to remove their Invisalign aligners in order to eat, drink, brush, and floss. The end result is a cleaner mouth with Invisalign when compared to those treated with traditional braces. Braces have been knowing to trap food in hard-to-reach places and also to be difficult to adequately clean. Invisalign eliminates all of the hindrances that are commonly associated with orthodontic braces. We provide the expert Invisalign service that allows our patients to keep their teeth, gums, and mouths cleaner than with traditional metal braces thus preventing more cavities, mouth sores, bad breath, and tooth loss overall.
Total Health Benefits of Invisalign
Several scientific studies have confirmed what dental professionals have surmised for decades: a person’s oral health has a strong positive correlation with their overall health. In a landmark study conducted by the American Dental Association, researchers found that oral infections can contribute to far more serious medical conditions including heart disease, pneumonia, diabetes, and cerebrovascular disease or stroke. Invisalign orthodontic aligners allow patients to remove them for the continuance of a good oral hygiene routine thus decreasing the likelihood of cavities and oral infections that could possibly lead or contribute to more serious health conditions.
The straightening of crooked or misaligned teeth can also help to eliminate additional conditions such as chronic headaches, jaw strain or tension, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, difficulties eating or speaking.
