Since many cosmetic dentistry clients who undergo Invisalign treatment do so in order to improve the look of their teeth, they're often pleasantly surprised to learn that Invisalign also improves their oral health. If you're looking for one of the simplest and most effective ways to achieve a healthy and glowing set of pearly whites, then be sure to inquire about Invisalign during your next dental checkup. Here's a closer look at how Invisalign helps you maintain oral health:
Makes Daily Cleanings Easier
Crowded teeth, poorly aligned teeth, and teeth that suffer from a bite problem can be difficult to navigate with a toothbrush since they feature crevices and tiny nooks. After undergoing the Invisalign treatment, and throughout the treatment process, you will see that your teeth are more evenly spaced and therefore easier to clean.
Reduces Leftover Food Buildup
One of the biggest complaints of cosmetic dentistry patients who choose traditional braces to fix their smiles is that food gets trapped in their teeth and in brackets following a meal. Not only can trapped food lead to embarrassment, but it can also be a source of tooth decay in the long run. The Invisalign treatment leaves you free to brush and floss easily after every meal, eliminating any food that is left behind.
Prevents the Growth of Dangerous Bacteria
By reducing the amount of food left behind after meals and by giving you more freedom with your daily cleanings, Invisalign is actually playing a huge role in preventing the growth of dangerous bacteria in your mouth. Infections in the mouth that are brought on by poor hygiene have been linked to diabetes, pneumonia, and stroke, so it's important to invest in effective treatments, such as Invisalign, in order to keep your oral health in check.
