Invisalign clear aligners are orthodontics that straightens crooked teeth without metal braces. This treatment is popular because the clear aligners are comfortable and convenient, but most importantly—discreet.
Invisalign’s crystal-clear aligners are barely noticeable when worn, an essential consideration for active, busy adults. While Invisalign will straighten your teeth and correct bite problems, there are numerous other benefits to consider.
1. Improved Confidence
If all you notice when you look in the mirror are your crooked teeth, you may feel like that’s what everyone else sees too. Feeling self-conscious about your smile’s appearance takes a toll on your confidence every time you interact with someone.
When your teeth are straight and even, and you know your smile has never looked better, you get a significant confidence boost. Now you can laugh and chat with friends or business associates and never have to worry about the look of your smile again.
2. Easier Oral Hygiene
Brushing and flossing around crooked or tightly crowded teeth can be difficult, if not impossible. When you can’t clean your teeth properly, you are at increased risk for developing cavities and gum disease. overlap and risk trapping food debris that a toothbrush might miss
After Invisalign treatment, your brushing and flossing routine will be more effective because you can easily reach all tooth surfaces.
3. Improved Gum Health
Crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth can lead to gum recession and impact the fit of your gums around your teeth. Gaps between the teeth and gums allow harmful bacteria to build up and cause gum disease.
Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign eliminates the crowding so you can effectively clear away the buildup when you brush and floss.
4. Relief for Head and Neck Pain
One of the results of a misaligned dental bite is head and neck pain and jaw joint pain. Straightening your teeth with Invisalign corrects your bite, eases stress on the TMJ, and helps minimize or eliminate your pain.
5. Reduced Dental Wear
An uneven dental bite can cause you to favor one side for chewing and place abnormal stress on teeth that weren’t designed to handle the load. All the excess chewing forces cause dental wear and erosion that we can correct.
However, restoring worn teeth doesn’t eliminate the source of the wear and tear. Since straightening your teeth with Invisalign clear aligners corrects your dental, it also helps prevents worn teeth.
