Healthy & Straight Teeth
Invisalign is the perfect treatment option for patients looking to straighten their smile in a way that’s comfortable and convenient. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign offers several benefits that can make getting a straighter smile easier. From healthier gums to fixing cosmetic issues, Invisalign can enhance your oral health while boosting your overall confidence.
Read below to learn about the positive health benefits of using Invisalign.
Preventative Benefits of Straight Teeth
Crooked teeth can negatively impact your oral health, such as making it more difficult to clean them properly. If not corrected, this can lead to long-term issues including cavities, gum disease, and eventual tooth loss. Fortunately, straightening your teeth can avoid these outcomes.
Misaligned teeth not only affect the appearance of your smile. It can also shift your jaw or misalign your bite. By using Invisalign, Dr. Assi can correct these problems and prevent future issues associated with crooked teeth. Having straight teeth goes beyond a picture-perfect smile. Alleviating these issues will enhance your oral health and save you from invasive treatments in the future.
Promoting Healthier Gums
Metal braces can make it difficult to thoroughly brush and floss your teeth. That’s what makes Invisalign a more convenient option for straightening your teeth compared to traditional methods. Since Invisalign aligners are easily removable, they’re meant to be taken out before each meal. This means that keeping your teeth clean is easier and lowers the odds of gum disease.
Dental hygiene is the most important factor for maintaining a healthy mouth. There’s no reason to suffer through an experience like braces when there’s the convenience and efficiency of wearing Invisalign clear aligners.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will Invisalign® harm my teeth?
Invisalign aligners won’t harm your teeth throughout the treatment. Your aligners will be custom-made to fit your smile without straightening it over the course of several months. When you visit our Coral Springs, FL office for fitting, Dr. Assi will make sure your trays are molded to the natural groves of your teeth to avoid any discomfort you may experience.
What happens if I don’t brush my teeth after meals?
It’s important to thoroughly clean your teeth before putting in your aligners, as any food that’s trapped in your teeth will stay on much longer than normal. Certain foods also have the potential of staining your aligners, making them discolored and more noticeable to people. This can further cause bacteria to grow throughout your teeth.
How do I keep my Invisalign® aligners clean?
Practicing a proper oral hygiene regimen is key throughout your Invisalign treatment. Dr. Assi will provide you with instructions on how to clean your teeth while wearing your aligners to ensure that there is no buildup of bacteria. You can also ask your dentist any questions you may have about Invisalign and the steps to keep your aligners clean.
Can Invisalign® help me lose weight?
While Invisalign doesn’t directly cause weight loss, the process of having to take them out for every meal and then brushing your teeth afterward can encourage some patients to plan what they eat for the day. Since your aligners are meant to stay in your mouth for at least 20 to 22 hours a day, it’s important to consider what your snacking habits are. Most patients who have undergone Invisalign treatment reported to have lost a certain amount of weight.
