Can Invisalign Aid in Creating a Healthier Mouth?
September 24, 2014
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. Straightening your teeth helps place the teeth in proper alignment so that brushing and flossing are easier and more effective. 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.
