Health Benefits of Invisalign

July 1, 2022

Did you know that investing in Invisalign offers many benefits beyond the perfect smile? 

Abnormal bites or misaligned teeth can lead to a number of oral health issues. According to the ADA, failing to correct your bite can result in “tooth decay, gum disease, tooth loss, speech problems, wear to tooth enamel, and jaw problems” (ADA).

Thankfully, proper orthodontic treatment such as Invisalign can be used to solve or even prevent these issues. Once your teeth are back in alignment, it will be easier to take care of them, bite into your favorite foods, and feel more comfortable with your smile. 

Cleaning Teeth Will Be Easier Than Ever

As mentioned above, misaligned teeth can be harder to clean. Since these teeth may be crowded or overlapping each other, it is much more difficult to floss and brush them properly. Improper care can eventually result in tooth decay and periodontal disease.

Invisalign trays will straighten out your smile, making all of your teeth much easier to brush and floss.

Treatment Can Help Your Speech

Severe underbites or crossbites can also result in speech issues. Misaligned jaws or placement of the teeth can restrict the movement of your tongue, resulting in a lisp or speech impediment. 

Using Invisalign to shape your smile can reverse this issue and help you speak and communicate with confidence. 

Fixing Alignment Can Help Prevent Grinding

Grinding during sleep can occur if the top and bottom sets of your teeth do not match up. This results in the deterioration of the enamel, which can lead to painful infections. (Cedar Walk Dentistry) 

With Invisalign, your teeth will slowly start to go in their proper place, greatly reducing the risk of grinding. 

Invisalign Can Improve Your Bite!

You may find it difficult to bite into your favorite foods with a misaligned smile. Aligners will slowly move your teeth so you can eventually bite and chew with ease. 

Once your treatment is complete, your mouth will feel so much better!
