Invisalign Improves Your Health
Crowded teeth can cause swollen, red gums. Left untreated, those gums can develop into periodontal disease. When teeth are aligned properly through the use of Invisalign, the gums fit more securely around the teeth, allowing for the strongest and healthiest defense against potential periodontal problems.
One of the biggest challenges of having brackets and wires fastened to the teeth is cleaning around them. Invisalign avoids those problems by offering a removable tray, allowing patients to continue to brush and floss as normal.
Furthermore, straight teeth (the end result of Invisalign) prevent the growth of bacteria, which can cause gum disease and tooth decay. Left untreated, these ailments can lead to mouth sores, tender or bleeding gums, bad breath and even tooth loss. Invisalign makes oral hygiene easier, thus reducing the risk of potential problems.
