There are some not so obvious, and very important health benefits that come with having straight teeth; achieving and maintaining a straight smile can help reduce the symptoms of gum disease. Correctly aligned teeth can also alleviate the issues caused by an improper bite, speech or chewing difficulties, and increased wear on tooth enamel. Swollen, red gums can often be the result of having teeth that are too crowded.
Invisalign is an invisible, painless technology that lets you have the smile you’ve always wanted without the hassle of metal braces. By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth with results you will notice very quickly.
When teeth are properly aligned, it helps the gums fit more securely around the teeth, and teeth become less vulnerable to the accumulation of plaque and bacteria in hard-to-reach areas. Invisalign aligners make daily oral hygiene easier, thus reducing the risk of possible problems with your gums during treatment.
