Not so long ago, you would have to go through the hassle of getting traditional braces to straighten your teeth. They look clunky and would sometimes affect speech. Invisalign offers an alternative for some patients. It’s invisible, making social situations far more comfortable. But why bother straightening your teeth with Invisalign?
Straight Teeth Wear Down Evenly
Teeth wear naturally as we age. There is no avoiding it. Teeth that are straight will wear more evenly and at a slower rate. Those that are uneven are more likely to have problem spots that will require dental treatment.
It’s Easier to Floss Straight Teeth
Flossing is an important part of keeping your teeth clean. Crooked teeth can create challenges when getting into hard-to-reach areas. Straight teeth are much easier to floss, which means you are more likely to get debris out that could cause cavities, bad breath, and gum disease.
Teeth Can Affect your Jaw Alignment
The position of your teeth affects your jaw alignment. Crooked or overcrowded mouths can cause jaw misalignment which can lead to clenching or grinding. Some patients also experience Temporomandibular disorder. Having your teeth straightened will allow your jaw to close comfortably and can prevent several future dental problems.
A Beautiful Smile Builds Confidence
There’s a mental and emotional benefit to straight teeth. A beautiful smile builds confidence and self-esteem. People with straight, healthy teeth feel comfortable smiling more. It can have a positive impact on your day to day life.
