Health Benefits of Invisalign Invisible Braces

A Pair of Invisalign Braces

Most people choose Invisalign aligners because of their cosmetic appeal, but the truth is there are many health advantages associated with them. Using Invisalign invisible braces, you can quickly and safely achieve the straighter smile you have always wanted while also enhancing your oral health. Straight teeth reduce the risk of various oral health problems, such as tooth decay and gum disease among others.

Nowadays, Invisalign is provided by many dental practices, including PDC Dental in Barnsley. The Invisalign system consists of a series of clear, custom-made, plastic aligners, which are virtually invisible. In most cases, Invisalign invisible braces are worn for about two weeks and at each appointment, your dentist will need to give you at least one or two sets of aligners to swap at home. Each set of invisible braces is individually manufactured with exact calculations to steadily move your teeth into place. Invisalign invisible braces are removable and can be taken out to eat and clean your teeth. However, they have to be worn at least 22 hours per day for best results.

Healthy Teeth and Gums

Swollen and red gums are the most common symptoms of gum disease, which can result from crowded or very widely spaced teeth. Straight teeth fit properly around the gums allowing for proper protection against bacteria and plaque. Crooked and misaligned teeth, on the other hand, make brushing and flossing much less effective. Invisalign invisible braces will gradually move your teeth into the proper position for a straight smile without uncomfortable and unattractive brackets and wires.

Overall Health Benefits

Your teeth are directly related to your overall health. Left untreated, dental conditions such as gum disease can cause mouth sores, bleeding gums, bad breath or even tooth loss. A study by the American Dental Association has shown that oral health problems may lead to more serious illnesses such as heart disease, pneumonia and diabetes.

Invisalign invisible braces will straighten your teeth and simplify your oral health routine. Furthermore, properly aligned teeth can also improve the consequences of an improper bite, speech or chewing difficulties, jaw problems, and extensive wear and tear of the tooth enamel. Invisalign invisible braces can efficiently address all of these problems in the most discreet way possible.
