How Invisalign® Can Help Your Smile’s Health

Posted .

When it comes to aligning your smile, Invisalign® can accomplish more than just straighter teeth. According to the American Dental Association (ADA), when your smile is aligned correctly actually improves your overall health. This is in addition to fixing the oral issues brought on by an improper bite such as chewing difficulties, problems with the jaw, and wear on tooth enamel.

Dr. Leo Eliezer and our Jones Bridge Dental Care team are excited to offer Invisalign clear aligners for our patients in Alpharetta, Georgia looking for straight teeth. Invisalign effectively corrects orthodontic issues, so you can achieve an attractive smile and increase improved oral health. Let’s take a look.

Gum Health

When teeth in your smile are crowded or spaced too widely, you may experience red, swollen gums. Swollen gums are a sign of periodontal disease, so this is not a good sign. However, when teeth are aligned properly, your gums will adhere to your teeth more securely, protecting against gum disease. Invisalign successfully addresses these issues by using a series of clear aligners that are comfortable to wear while gradually moving your teeth into alignment.

Oral Hygiene

By now you know that oral hygiene is the basis of strong oral health. With braces, it is challenging to remove food particles and plaque which can become stuck in the brackets and wires. If not removed daily, you are inviting tooth decay. Because Invisalign aligners are removable, you can brush and floss your teeth like normal, without trying to work around brackets and wires.

Systemic Health

Your mouth contains bacteria that can cause tooth decay and gum disease if not removed daily. This can lead to sores in the mouth, or tender, bleeding gums, halitosis (bad breath) and even tooth loss unless treated. According to the ADA, oral infections are linked to heart disease, diabetes, pneumonia, and even stroke. With the help of Invisalign, you can achieve a healthy, aligned smile while protecting your body in the process.
