Straight Teeth is About More Than Cosmetics


A “perfect” smile can do wonders for your self-confidence, but the benefits of having properly aligned teeth extend far beyond a confident smile. In fact, straightening your teeth can significantly increase your dental and overall health. And thanks to Invisalign, you can have the beautiful, healthy smile you’ve always wanted without worrying about the unsightly and uncomfortable side effects of traditional wire braces. Here is a closer look at some of the surprising benefits of having straight teeth.

Healthier Teeth and Gums

Having teeth that are crowded or too widely spaced apart can lead to periodontal disease. Straight teeth are much easier to clean, as there are fewer places for food and bacteria to get trapped. And when your teeth are straight, they fit more securely in the gums, which can also lower your risk of developing periodontal disease.

Reduced Risk of Heart Disease

According to studies by the American Dental Association (ADA), oral infections and diseases can cause mouth sores, tender or bleeding gums, bad breath, and tooth loss. Worse, oral infections and diseases have also been linked to more serious ailments such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Because straight teeth are easier to clean, you will reduce your likelihood of developing oral complications that can affect your overall health.

Better Self-Esteem

A confident smile and great self-esteem go hand in hand. If you want to feel more confident in your own skin, start by improving your smile. The health benefits of straight teeth are important, but the personal benefits are equally important, especially if you are self-conscious about your teeth and gums.
