The Benefits of Invisalign

Just like traditional braces, Invisalign was created as a corrective treatment option for overcrowded or crooked teeth.

Where traditional braces use metal wires and brackets attached to each individual tooth, Invisalign uses clear, plastic aligners to straighten teeth without wires or brackets.

Another important difference between Invisalign and traditional metal braces is that Invisalign aligners are removable where braces are not removed until the treatment is complete.

While braces and Invisalign are different treatment options, they both serve the same purpose of giving you a beautiful smile and improving your oral health.

Below are 3 important ways Invisalign can improve your oral health.

Improved Digestion

Chewing your food is one of the first steps in the digestion process. Our teeth mash and grind food particles into smaller pieces to make it easier for the digestion process to work more efficiently.

Braces close gaps and spaces between the teeth. When our teeth are properly aligned and spaced, we are able to break up food more thoroughly before the food particles pass to next step in the digestion process.

Reduced Risk of Chipping and Grinding Teeth

If left unaddressed, persistent griding of teeth can cause teeth to chip or become loose. By moving teeth into their proper alignment, braces can be a treatment option for the prevention of grinding and chipping of teeth.

Easier Oral Health Maintenance

Straighter teeth can also help you improve your ability to maintain oral health through brushing and flossing. Regular brushing and flossing can lead to a decreased risk of developing cavities and periodontal disease.
