If you’ve been interested in straightening your teeth but keep putting it off, there has never been a better time to get started than now!
Advancements in alignment technology have grown leaps and bounds, and gone are the days when traditional train track braces with headgear were your only path toward the smile of your dreams. Let’s be real, we all remember the “nerdy” girl in every teen movie, and she always had braces.
Whether you are a teen or adult, Invisalign is an excellent option at any age to enhance your smile. Learn the benefits you’ll experience from Invisalign treatment.
Attain The Smile You’ve Always Dreamed Of Having
Let’s start with the most important factor that draws patients into Invisalign treatment. You will get the smile you have always dreamed of with Invisalign treatment or Invisalign treatment and a combination of other cosmetic dentistry procedures.
Invisalign uses unique technology to help move your teeth into the correct position, eliminating crowding of teeth, tipping and tooth rotations. As well, Invisalign can reduce spaces or gaps in between teeth. Invisalign can also change your tooth-to-gum ratio when you smile, correcting a “gummy” smile. Most patients also like to whiten their teeth after their Invisalign treatment.
Corrects Your Bite & Reduces Strain On Teeth
When your teeth are correctly aligned, you are able to bite and chew evenly on both sides, reducing strain on any individual tooth. This actually helps to prevent wear and tear on your teeth, including chipping, fractures and broken teeth. A corrected bite also helps to prevent conditions such as clenching and grinding and reduces pain in your TMJ.
Additionally, gum recession risk is also reduced when your bite is corrected. Gum recession refers to shrinking of the gums, which reveals more of the tooth structure.
Invisalign Helps Prevents Cavities & Gum Disease
Here is the benefit that gets us dental professionals excited. By aligning your teeth, you can help prevent cavities and gum disease. Teeth that are out of alignment, especially crowded teeth, are more prone to plaque bacteria accumulation and are more difficult to clean adequately.
When plaque is left on teeth and gum surfaces, it accumulates in heavy plaque build-up and leads to cavities between teeth, on the biting surfaces of teeth and even at the gum line. It can also lead to gum disease in the form of gingivitis.
