Did you know that the benefits of straight teeth can go beyond simply cosmetics? According to the American Dental Association, straightening your teeth can actually significantly affect your overall dental health. Fortunately, with treatments such as Invisalign, you can have a beautiful smile and reduce your risk for gum disease and tooth decay!
One of the biggest challenges of having braces is removing all the food that gets trapped in the brackets and wires. This can often lead to plaque buildup and eventually tooth decay. With Invisalign, the aligners are removable, so it’s easy to continue brushing and flossing your teeth the way you normally do.
Both tooth decay and gum disease are caused by bacteria. Left untreated, they can cause tender or bleeding gums, bad breath, and possible tooth loss. Studies by the American Dental Association have shown that oral infections can also lead to other more serious ailments such as heart disease, stroke, pneumonia, and diabetes. Invisalign aligners make daily oral hygiene easier, thus reducing the risk of these possible problems so that not only can you have the confidence of a great smile, you can and increase the likelihood of improved oral health.
