When it comes to making sure that your smile stays healthy and beautiful, the most common concern is making sure your teeth are clean and free of plaque and tartar. However, there are more things that can influence your oral health than just oral bacteria, and malocclusion (or crooked teeth) is one of the more serious ones. For older teen and adult patients who wish for a straighter smile but also wish they could avoid having to wear metal braces, Invisalign® may be their most beneficial option.
An easier hygiene routine
Good dental hygiene and preventive care is always important, but it’s even more so when you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment. Traditionally, braces involve brackets and wires bonded to your teeth, which can make it easier for harmful oral bacteria to accumulate and cause harm. With Invisalign®, you can remove your custom aligners before brushing and flossing to ensure your teeth stay healthy and free of disease.
No changes to your diet
Besides easier hygiene, Invisalign® also makes it easier to eat the foods you’ve always loved without worrying about them sticking in your braces. By removing your aligners, you can even eat sticky or hard foods, as long as you remember to brush or rinse your teeth afterward, before putting your aligners back in place.
An improved bite and smile
The most important benefit of Invisalign® aligners is that they actually work, which means you can finally enjoy a straighter, more attractive, and more functional smile. When your teeth are crooked, you may be at a much higher risk of developing bite issues like bruxism and TMJ disorder. By undergoing treatment with Invisalign®, you can lower or eliminate your risks of such issues.
