Invisalign Clear Braces
February 6, 2013
Most patients want Invisalign to straighten their teeth for aesthetic reasons. However, what most patients do not know is that Invisalign helps with a healthier mouth. Gums may be affected by over-crowding and cause periodontal disease symptoms. Straightening your teeth helps place the teeth in proper alignment so that brushing and flossing are easier. In addition, straighter teeth help prevent decay and bad breath. Imagine crowded teeth that may overlap and food gets trapped daily in those areas. This causes rapid decay if the patient is not diligent in brushing and flossing those areas.
