Aligned Teeth are Healthy Teeth! The Hidden Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign treatment is an amazing way to give yourself a 100-watt smile that can light up any room! A great smile, one with straight teeth, plays an important role in maintaing oral health which in turn can impact your total body health.

Did you know that misaligned teeth can lead to premature wear, tooth loss, and gum disease? By treating our patients with Invisalign, our team in Bernardsville, is able to treat various kinds of malocclusion (imperfect positioning of the teeth when the jaws are closed) that puts you at risk. These included crowded teeth, gapped teeth, overbites, excessive overjets, edge-to-edge bites, oben bites, and narrow arches. 

Below is a list of hidden benefits of clear aligners.

#1 LOWER RISK OF GUM DISEASE

Crooked and crowded teeth can be difficult to clean properly. For many patients, it's difficult to properly floss between teeth and that means that hidden sugars will begin to eat away at the enamal teeth. In addition, those food particles will begin to cause inflamed gums which can spread to other parts of your body, including joints and organs. Periodontal disease has been linked to worsening diabetic symptoms, heart disease, stroke, arthritis, and more. 

#2 LOWER RISK OF TOOTH LOSS

When your teeth are not properly aligned, they put extra stress and pressure on each other and on your jawbone. If not corrected, crooked teeth can cause receding gums, cold sensitivity, chipped and fractured teeth, and even tooth loss! Think of Invisalign as a preventative, anti-aging treatment for your teeth! When your teeth are in the proper place, they will wear less and look younger for a lifetime. 

#3 DECREASED JAW PAIN & HEADACHES

An estimated 10 million Americans suffer from TMJ pain. This pain affects a person's jaw muscles and can also cause headaches, and neck and shoulder pain. This pain is usally related to bruxism (teeth-grinding) and can seriously diminish a person's quality of life. Teeth grinding also puts unnecessary wear and tear on a person's teeth.

This grinding and subsequent pain is a result of misaligned teeth! When teeth are in aligment, the temporomandibular joint is able to open and close properly. Throughout treatment, Invisalign aligners are correcting your teeth's alignment, giving you a pain-free smile!
