The Health Benefits of Straighter Teeth

Straighter teeth mean a healthier mouth that has a more pleasing appearance and teeth that are more likely to last a lifetime.


 

The need for straighter teeth isn’t always cosmetic. For adults, Invisalign can discreetly give you the straighter smile you desire, while also playing an important role in maintaining oral health. 

Crowded teeth make brushing and flossing more difficult, and being unable to properly clean your teeth can lead to decay and gum disease. Gaps between teeth can create pockets between the teeth and gums where food can get stuck. That can cause soreness and bleeding of the gums and can lead to periodontal disease, which has been associated with diabetes and high blood pressure.

Additionally, about 20 percent of the population has some degree of malocclusion, a misalignment in how your teeth fit together. This can cause problems with your bite, such as an overbite or deep bite, underbite, cross bite and open bite, and can lead to jaw pain and excessive wear on your teeth. An incorrect bite can also lead to difficulty in chewing or speaking correctly. 

But with Invisalign, straighter teeth mean a healthier mouth that has a more pleasing appearance and teeth that are more likely to last a lifetime. Correcting orthodontic problems can put an end to issues such as bad breath, gingivitis, tooth sensitivity and chipping of teeth. As well as resolving immediate problems, Invisalign can also help to prevent more serious issues from developing, including tooth loss.
