Health Benefits of Invisalign Aligners

a dental check up

Most people prefer Invisalign because of its cosmetic appeal, but the truth is there are many health advantages associated with it. Using Invisalign instead of invisible braces, dentists can quickly and safely better smiles while also enhancing their patients’ oral health. Straight teeth reduce the risk of various oral health problems, such as tooth decay and gum disease among others.

Nowadays, Invisalign is provided by many dental practices including Vogue Dental. It consists of a series of clear, custom-made, plastic aligners, which are virtually invisible. Unlike invisible braces, Luton Invisalign aligners are worn for about a week.  At each appointment, the dentist will provide the patient with one or two sets of aligners to swap at home.

Unlike invisible braces, Luton Invisalign aligners are individually made with exact calculations to steadily move each patient’s teeth into their place. Invisalign aligners are removable and can be taken out for tasks such as tooth brushing and eating. For best results, however, they must be worn at least 22 hours per day.

Healthy teeth and gums

Swollen and red gums are the most common symptoms of gum disease, which can result from crowded or very widely spaced teeth. Straight teeth fit properly around the gums allowing for proper protection against bacteria and plaque. Crooked and misaligned teeth, on the other hand, make brushing and flossing much less effective. Invisalign aligners will gradually move a patient’s teeth into their correct position for a straight smile without uncomfortable and unattractive brackets and wires.

Overall health benefits

Untreated teeth can lead to serious dental conditions such as gum disease, mouth sores, bleeding gums, bad breath or even tooth loss. A study by the American Dental Association has shown that oral health problems may lead to more serious illnesses such as heart disease, pneumonia, and diabetes.

Unlike regular invisible braces, Luton Invisalign aligners can straighten a patient’s teeth and simplify their oral health routine considerably. Furthermore, properly aligned teeth can also improve the consequences of an improper bite, speech or chewing difficulties, jaw problems, and extensive wear and tear of the tooth enamel.

Invisalign aligners can efficiently address many dental problems in the most discreet way possible.
