Having straight teeth is not only beneficial to build confidence in your smile, but it can also affect your ability to have a healthy mouth overall. We often think of braces as being used primarily for cosmetic purposes, but crooked or misaligned teeth can have far-reaching consequences for overall oral health as well.
Properly aligned teeth can prevent tooth decay by enabling you to clean around and between teeth properly -overlapping or crooked teeth may have more nooks and crannies where bacteria and food can hide. In addition, bite problems can cause imbalanced strain on the jaw muscles, which can lead to problems such as excessive tooth wear, TMJ disorder, and other painful conditions.
Comfortable, Convenient, Subtle Straightening
For many people, metal braces are cosmetically unappealing. Invisalign offers a viable alternative to metal braces for certain orthodontic patients. Invisalign is a smooth, clear insert (aligner) for your mouth that aligns teeth over time with gentle force. The aligner trays are thin and lightweight, making them ultra-comfortable.
In addition to the comfort benefits that Invisalign offers, many patients also prefer it for aesthetic reasons. The clear aligners are virtually indistinguishable in your mouth, allowing you to get teeth straightened more subtly than with traditional braces. They are also much more convenient than traditional braces, because they are not bonded to your teeth, so they can be removed for meals and hygiene.
