Tags – Reasons To Get Invisalign


Invisalign is a great way to get straighter teeth without having to go through the hassles of traditional braces. 

But did you know that there are other reasons to get Invisalign that are not just about vanity? 

In this blog post, we will discuss some of the benefits that go beyond just having straight teeth. Keep reading to learn more!


1. A Better Bite

Worn tooth enamel, or “melamine,” can develop after a misaligned bite, which causes rapid wear and tear on the teeth, as well as fractures. 

However, they are less likely to be damaged after Invisalign aligns them properly and they fit well together.


2. Proper Jaw Alignment

Mismatched jaws, such as having an underbite or overbite, can cause discomfort in the joints, clicking and popping, difficulty chewing, or even inability to chew. 

On the positive side, the teeth will be perfectly aligned as a result of Invisalign treatment and will allow the mouth to open and close freely without deterioration of the jaw or pain.


3. Better Digestion

The mouth is in charge of the initial stages of food digestion, however crooked teeth can make it challenging to chew properly. 

Masticating your meals improperly in your mouth has an impact on the entire process of nutrient absorption throughout the body. 

Simply put, you’ll get less nutrition from what you eat if you don’t take a good bite. Chewing and the whole digestive process may be enhanced with appropriate jaw alignment.


4. Facial Pain Relief

A better bite not only helps patients with painful facial muscles, but it may also help those who have suffered from the effects of grinding. 

Wearing an aligner for several months can assist patients who suffer from TMD discomfort by deprogramming the muscles involved in grinding and relieving their symptoms.


5. Brush and Floss Properly

When teeth do not bite tightly enough together, a threadlike food or vegetable is likely to get caught in between them at every meal, lodging there until removed by floss. 

Food impaction is a condition in which food becomes entrapped in the teeth. The bacteria can feed on the food because of the misaligned teeth. 

Facilitating their development in your mouth will result in faster gum recession and a throbbing mouth pain. 

Teeth should be positioned properly for flossing and brushing to be more convenient and effective. There’s less for you to worry about and do if your teeth are all properly aligned in the proper position.


6. Improved Speech

You may notice an improvement in your speech and pronunciation after wearing Invisalign. Consider this: the position of your teeth has a big influence on how well you can speak words correctly. 

Unfortunately, misaligned teeth might induce or aggravate a lisp, making it more difficult to pronounce specific terms. But with straighter teeth, speech and phonetics are made easier.


7. Shorter Cleanings with Your Hygienist

Teeth that are correctly aligned are more self-cleaning and self-maintaining. 

They’re easier to floss, and the hygienist can clean them more easily! It’s difficult to clean crooked teeth. 

When teeth are twisted and crammed, the instrument used by the dental hygienist becomes useless, allowing germs to evade removal during the cleaning procedure.


8. Improved Health Overall

Oral health has been linked to a variety of general health concerns, including heart disease, diabetes, anxiety and depression, infections, and pneumonia. 

When your dental health deteriorates, it becomes an entry point for germs that may cause illness. 

As a result, the probability of acquiring these diseases rises as your oral health gets worse. 

The simplest approach to defend yourself is to enhance your oral health, and the best method to do that is with Invisalign. As your teeth get straighter and your oral health improves, the germs in your mouth will decrease, lowering your risk of developing any of these other diseases.


Wrapping Up

As you can see, there are numerous health benefits of Invisalign that extend beyond a straighter smile.  

If you are considering Invisalign treatment, be sure to discuss all of your concerns and goals with your orthodontist to ensure that Invisalign is the right fit for you.
