A Straight Smile is A Healthy Smile!

Everyone knows that a straight, well-aligned smile looks wonderful. Did you know that kind of smile often means it’s also a healthy smile.  Put yourself in a healthy state of mind, and take a look at the many benefits of a properly aligned smile with Invisalign can provide for you.

*Healthier gums*

The Invisalign Smile 

Early signs of periodontal disease, such as swollen gums and redness, can happen due to teeth that are crowded or too widely spaced. Clinical studies have shown that when teeth are properly aligned, it helps the gums fit tighter around the teeth, and can lead to better periodontal health.  Invisalign’s greatest advantage is the ability to straighten your teeth therefore the health of your gums will improve when Invisalign treatment is complete.  Since you can brush and floss normally with Invisalign, unlike with traditional braces, your gums will stay healthy while going through the Invisalign process.

*Easier and Better cleaning*

One of the Invisalign’s greatest qualities is that there are no metal bands, brackets, or wires like traditional braces have.   Because of the metal in traditional braces it can act as a foodtrap, collect, and is much  harder to clean, which can lead to periodontal disease.  Since Invisalign is removable it allows you to maintain good oral hygiene habits so you may also reduce chances of plaque buildup, tooth decay, and periodontal disease.

*Improved chewing and speech*

When teeth are not positioned correctly it can lead to speech difficulties and uncomfortable chewing issues. Invisalign treatment can improve issues by giving you better-aligned teeth and a better bite.

*Maintain comfort and tooth structure*

Misaligned teeth and jaws can result in abnormal stress to your teeth and jaw.  This can cause pain to your jaw joints. Teeth that are misaligned can also cause abnormal wear which can trigger problems in the future.  Invisalign will help align your bite so these problems will not happen. 

Not only will invisalign give you the smile that you have always wanted but will help keep your teeth healthy so you can keep them the rest of your life.  For more information check out our website or Call Dr. Duke in Salt Lake City to schedule your free consultation today!!  801-355-2202
