Are you ready to make a change with your smile? Summer is a great time to start working on the smile you’ve always wanted with Invisalign! With more free time in the summer months, you can concentrate on adjusting to your aligners and fit in appointments with ease. What are some of the benefits you can reap from using the Invisalign system? Here are just a few of the reasons why you shouldn’t put off starting your treatment any longer.
Health Benefits of Straight Teeth
Straight teeth look great, which is reason enough to start using Invisalign, but the benefits are more than cosmetic. Straight teeth are also good for your health. Spacing issues make it difficult to keep your teeth and gums clean. Overlaps and crowding can partially obscure tooth surfaces, which means your toothbrush can’t sweep away all of the bacteria. Crowding also makes flossing difficult. In turn, plaque and bacteria build up, causing tooth decay and gum disease. Widely-space teeth leave your gums vulnerable to injury. Straight teeth can even improve your digestion, since tooth misalignments can compromise your chewing.
Invisalign System Advantages
Invisalign offers many advantages over traditional braces. Because Invisalign treatment uses a series of clear, plastic aligners to straighten teeth, no one will know that you are undergoing treatment. Since the aligners are removable for eating, no foods are off-limits, like they are with traditional braces. The aligners can also be removed for brushing and flossing, so you don’t have to change your oral health routine. Many patients with braces struggle to adapt to brushing and flossing around their brackets and wires, so they end up with tooth decay. Lastly, Invisalign treatment is usually faster than treatment with traditional braces.
