While having straighter teeth can help improve the appearance of your smile, there are a variety of other benefits to undergoing Invisalign orthodontic treatment. Here are the top 3 reasons to get Invisalign from our dentists at Academy Dental Group in Winnipeg.
Invisalign aligners are convenient.
Invisalign aligners help make your orthodontic treatment process a little easier.
For starters, you can take them out to eat, which means that you don’t have to worry about all the dietary restrictions that comes with traditional metal braces. All you have to do is take them out before you eat, and put them back in (after brushing and flossing) once you’re done.
As you can probably guess, the fact that Invisalign aligners are removable makes oral hygiene during your orthodontic treatment simple, too.
You can take your aligners out and brush and floss just like you normally do.
And cleaning the aligners themselves is also straightforward. When you take them out, wash them gently with mild, clear soap and a soft toothbrush, and then rinse them off. That’s all there is to it!
They’re comfortable, too.
Invisalign aligners are made of a smooth plastic that is very comfortable to wear. Because there are no metal pieces attached to your teeth, you’re unlikely to experience any irritation inside your mouth.
Straight Teeth Are Healthy Teeth
The most important reason to get Invisalign treatment is because straight teeth are healthy teeth.
Misaligned teeth can cause all sorts of oral health problems. They are more difficult to brush and floss properly, because they often have deep crevices that a toothbrush or floss can’t properly access. This can increase your risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
Over time, misaligned teeth can also contribute to jaw problems. These include TMJ or TMD, pain in the joints, jaw joint clicking and popping, misaligned jaws, inefficient and painful chewing, or the inability to chew effectively.
In other words, undergoing Invisalign treatment can help improve your overall oral health, so you can keep your teeth healthy for life.
