Smile healthy

It's easy to see that a straight, even smile of glossy pearly whites look great. But a cosmetically perfect smile often means it's also a healthy smile. So put yourself in a healthy state of mind, and take a look at the additional benefits of a properly aligned smile.

Healthier gums

Signs of periodontal disease, such as swollen gums and redness, can surface due to teeth that are crowded or too widely spaced. Clinical studies have shown that when teeth are properly aligned, it helps the gums fit tighter around the teeth(1), which can lead to better gum health. Since Invisalign's greatest advantage is its ability to effectively straighten teeth, your gum health may improve after Invisalign treatment(2). And since you can brush and floss normally with Invisalign, unlike with traditional braces, you can more easily prevent tooth decay and related gum disease.

Better oral health

One of Invisalign's best qualities is that it uses no metal bands, brackets, or wires that may trap food and plaque like traditional braces. And since the removable nature of Invisalign allows you to maintain good oral hygiene, you may also reduce chances of plaque build-up, tooth decay, and gum disease.

Improved chewing and speech

When you leave incorrectly positioned teeth and jaws untreated, it can lead to speech difficulties and uncomfortable chewing issues. Invisalign treatment can improve both of these problems by providing better-aligned teeth and jaws.

Maintain comfort and tooth structure

Misaligned teeth and jaws can result in abnormal stress. This can cause painful trauma to supporting bone and jaw joints. These issues can also cause abnormal wear on your teeth, which can trigger continued problems in the future. Invisalign treatment can improve the alignment of your teeth and improve your bite.
