Can Invisalign Make Me Healthier?

Most people that walk into our office for a San Diego Invisalign treatment want to have a more beautiful smile and more confidence to laugh and smile at will. We are more than thrilled to offer our patients the amazing confidence that a beautiful smile brings. However, the benefits of Invisalign extend beyond your smile. According to research from the American Dental Association, it turns out that straighter teeth can lead to a healthier you.

How does this work?

When teeth aren’t straight, it means that there is either too much space or crowding happening somewhere in the mouth. These extra spaces or crowded teeth lead to problems such as periodontal disease and gum disease. Invisalign takes care of this problem by providing a safe way to straighten your teeth.

Furthermore, Invisalign aligners can be removed so that you can clean your teeth more thoroughly, decreasing the amount of plague and decay that can be associated with traditional braces.

Finally, correctly aligned teeth eliminate pockets that act as a haven for bacteria. Bacteria buildup in your mouth can lead to a host of problems, such as heart disease, stroke, pneumonia, and diabetes, among others, according to the American Dental Association. 

In the end, Invisalign can make you healthier, as well as give you a more beautiful smile and more confidence. If you’re interested in learning more, ask us a question, contact our office, or schedule an appointment to come and meet our team. We would love to give you excellent dental care that results in a happier, healthier you.
