Straight teeth: It’s not just about looks…the medical benefits of Invisalign

December 30, 2022

Typically, the motivation for getting Invisalign is to improve appearance and give yourself a brand-new smile. But, the end result of the treatment is even better — your oral and overall health will improve.

At Seaside Dentistry in Jupiter, FL, Dr. Ashley Pare has seen this happen time and time again with Invisalign patients. Here are a few benefits that patients can expect.

Less jaw pain
You may have difficulty biting and chewing your food correctly, and your bite patterns may be uneven at best. This misalignment can cause teeth grinding, jaw clenching, jaw pain, and even poor digestion because you can’t properly chew your food. Invisalign helps take care of all these problems by straightening your teeth so your jawbone will be straight and healthy.

Better oral health
With traditional braces, it’s easy for food and bacteria to build up on wires and brackets and between teeth. With Invisalign, you can remove the clear aligners when necessary, which makes it easier to practice good oral hygiene like brushing and flossing. This will lead to a cleaner, healthier mouth and cut down on additional issues like mouth sores, cavities, bad breath, and tooth decay.

Improved overall health
Health issues have been linked to oral health, including heart disease, diabetes, anxiety and depression, infections, and pneumonia. Your mouth becomes an entry point into the body for the bacteria that can cause these diseases. This means your chances of developing these diseases increases as your oral health decreases. The simple solution to protect yourself is to improve your oral health, and one of the best ways to do that is with Invisalign clear aligners. As your teeth become straighter and your oral health improves, the bacteria in your mouth will lessen and your chances of developing any of these other health issues will decrease.
