The Benefits of Invisalign, Beyond Straight Teeth

The main reason someone would choose Invisalign? Straight teeth of course! But the benefits of Invisalign go way beyond just aesthetics.

Confidence

This one is sort of a no-brainer. When you look better (and you know it), you feel more confident. There is even a 2013 study that proves that people with a full set of straight teeth can significantly improve quality of life by boosting self-esteem.

It’s Easier to Clean Your Teeth

When your teeth are crowded and crooked, it’s harder to clean all of their surfaces. If the bacteria isn’t washed away somehow, it turns into tartar and will eventually cause significant tooth decay. When you straighten your teeth with Invisalign, you’ll be able to brush and floss more effectively simply because you can get to each and every surface of your teeth.

Helps with Headaches and Neck Pain

Headaches and neck pain can be caused by a bad bite or jaw misalignment. By straightening your teeth, your bite can improve, and alleviate the stress that’s been put on your jaw joint. This will ease the headaches and neck pain that are associated with this.

Promotes Healthier Gums

When you have gaps or crowding in your mouth, your gums also suffer. It’s harder for your gums to fit securely around your teeth if they have not enough or too much spacing. Sometimes crowding can make it hard to clean around the gums, leaving harmful bacteria between the teeth. This can lead to periodontal disease, which you definitely do not want.

Prevents Abnormal Tooth Wear

If your bite is off, you could have some abnormal tooth wear. There might be a chip in a top and a bottom tooth, that fit together like a puzzle piece when you close your jaw. Getting these abnormalities fixed might not be a complete solution if your bite isn’t fixed as well. Get Invisalign. Fix your bite. Fix the abnormalities. Now you have a complete solution.

The benefits of Invisalign can be life-changing. If it’s something you’re interested in, talk to your dentist and see if it’s right for you.
