  • Invisalign, a method of straightening teeth without traditional braces, involves wearing a series of clear plastic aligners to shift your teeth. Obviously, the goal is straight teeth and an aligned jaw. While achieving these goals, Invisalign provides some additional benefits. Let’s find out how Invisalign actually can improve your overall oral health.

    Healthy gums
    When your teeth are straight, they fit securely with your gums. This gives you the best chance of fighting off gum disease. Stress on your gums is decreased, as is redness and swelling that can accompany crowded or gapped teeth. By wearing the comfortable Invisalign aligners, your teeth gradually move into their ideal positions and your gums reap the benefits.

    Easy cleaning
    Because Invisalign retainers are removable, you avoid the hassles of trying to clean around the brackets and wires of traditional braces. It’s often difficult to remove plaque and food particles when braces are glued to your teeth, which is important in avoiding tooth decay. With Invisalign, brushing and flossing is accomplished normally and it’s easier to maintain a healthy mouth.

    Better chewing and speech
    Straight, correctly aligned teeth allow you to speak clearly, which sometimes can be affected by crowded teeth or a misaligned jaw. Chewing can also be more comfortable and effective when your upper and lower jaws are properly aligned.

    Tooth structure
    A correct bite and straight teeth play a part in healthy gums and protection of your tooth structure. Your jaw and teeth may experience added stress when the structures are out of alignment, causing pain and abnormal wear on your teeth.

    Overall Health
    Healthy teeth and gums, and an attractive smile, show that you take good care of yourself. Your self-confidence improves, and your general health can too. Invisalign can do more than just help you achieve a great smile.
