Straightening your teeth with Invisalign can help to improve the appearance of your smile and boost your confidence. Today, our Markham dentists share more about the benefits of straightening your smile with Invisalign clear aligners.
Invisalign makes straightening your smile easy.
Orthodontic treatment should be easy with Invisalign's clear aligners.
Unlike traditional metal braces, you can take your aligners out when you're going to eat, which means there are no dietary restrictions with Invisalign. All you have to do is remove your aligners before you eat, store them safely in their case, then when you're finished eating brush and floss your teeth and put your aligners back in place.
Thanks to Invisalign's removable aligners, oral hygiene is easier too! With traditional metal braces, extra care and cleaning is required to maintain your oral health, but with Invisalign, you simply remove your aligners and brush and floss normally.
Keeping your aligners clean and clear is simple. Whenever you remove your aligners, gently wash them with mild, clear soap and a soft toothbrush, then rinse them off and return them to your mouth.
Invisalign clear aligners are comfortable.
Invisalign aligners are comfortable to wear because they're made from a very thin, smooth plastic. A key benefit of Invisalign is that there are no metal brackets attached to your teeth, and no wires to irritate the insides of your mouth.
In fact, you’re unlikely to experience any irritation inside your mouth while undergoing orthodontic treatment with Invisalign.
Straight teeth are healthy teeth.
The most important benefit of straightening your teeth with Invisalign is that straight teeth are healthy teeth.
Misaligned teeth can lead to a number of oral health issues. That's because crooked or overlapping teeth are more difficult to brush and floss effectively than straight teeth. When teeth are crowded or crooked there are more places where your toothbrush just can't reach, increasing your risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
Misaligned teeth may also contribute to jaw problems such as TMJ or TMD, pain in the joints, jaw joint clicking and popping, misaligned jaws, inefficient and painful chewing, or the inability to chew effectively.
Undergoing Invisalign treatment can help to improve the effectiveness of your oral hygiene routine, helping you to keep your smile healthy for life.
