Invisalign is made of a set of clear plastic aligners that’s worn over a patient’s teeth in order to move them in place based on a plan prepared by his/her dentist. It can effectively correct a person’s bite without the usual wires and brackets that’s commonly associated with metal braces. This advanced orthodontic treatment can give you more than just a beautiful smile as it also provides some health benefits that aren’t present in traditional teeth straightening procedures.
Traditional braces are fixed appliances that make it hard for a person to eat their favorite meals. They’re also hard to clean as bits of food could get stuck behind the wires and brackets. Invisalign is removable, which allows you to take it out whenever you need to eat, drink, or clean your teeth.
Promotes good digestion
Your teeth play a vital role in the digestion of food. Since Invisalign is detachable, you can properly chew and break down your food so your body can easily absorb and use the needed nutrients.
Enjoy a healthy diet
There are no food restrictions during Invisalign treatment because you can simply pop it out when you want to feast on your favorite meal and pop them back on afterwards. Your diet will not be limited to soft foods, so you’re free to indulge in your favorite meals and pursue a healthy diet.
Makes it easy to brush and clean your teeth
Invisalign won’t interfere with your daily routine. Simply take off your aligners to brush and floss like you normally would. Then, clean your aligners as instructed by your Lincroft dentist before putting them back on. With regular cleaning, you’ll get rid of the bacteria and plaque that cling to your teeth and gums. This decreases your chances of developing tooth decay and gum disease.
Maintains your tooth structure
It straightens your teeth and aligns your bite. This reduces excessive stress on your supporting bones and jaw joints. Additionally, it reduces the risk of breaking a tooth.
