Oral Health Benefits of Invisalign®
- Posted on: Oct 25 2012
Like traditional braces, Invisalign provides important health benefits. Some of the benefits of Invisalign are as follows:
During treatment: Invisalign aligners are removable. You must take the aligners out to brush and floss, which means dental hygiene can be just as easy and effective as before your orthodontic treatment.
Of course, effective dental hygiene is possible with traditional braces as well, but it can be a little difficult to brush and floss around and beneath the braces. With Invisalign, this added difficulty is not an issue.
After treatment is complete: The health benefits of orthodontic treatment include:
- Straight teeth: Teeth are straight and aligned after Invisalign and other orthodontic treatment. Typically, straight teeth are easier to floss and brush than crooked and crowded teeth.
- Aligned bite: When your upper and lower teeth come together in a properly aligned way, you enjoy optimal chewing and speaking function from your teeth and jaws. A good bite also prevents painful headaches and other symptoms caused by TMJ disorder.
Straight teeth provide aesthetic and health benefits, and you can straighten your teeth less noticeably with Invisalign.
