Misaligned Teeth And How Invisalign Clear Liners Will Change Your Health And Smile!

What's Healthier About Straighter Teeth?

Misaligned teeth can lead to premature wear, tooth loss, gum disease, and the build-up of bacteria associated with bigger problems, including heart disease. More than seven out of ten American adults have some kind of issue with their bite, such as crowding, spacing, or overbites - your doctor may use the word Malocclusion. (Malocclusion=Abnormal tooth alignment)

 

 

Are you experiencing any of the following?
  • Cold sensitivity
  • Teeth chipping or wearing
  • Food getting caught between teeth
  • Difficulty flossing
  • Self-consciousness when smiling
  • Biting lips, cheek, or tongue
  • Indentations at the gum line
  • Speech changes or lisping
  • Bad breath
  • Dry mouth or mouth breathing
  • Jaw or muscle pain or headaches
  • Receding gums

Painful Gums And Gum Disease

It's hard to remove plaque and bacteria from misaligned teeth. This can lead to inflamed gums, soft tissue damage, receding gums, pockets between teeth and gums, bone loss, and tooth loss. Early signs of gum disease include red gums, bleeding when you brush or floss, and bad breath. There may be no signs of gum disease until the advanced stages.

Tooth And Gum Deterioration And Tooth Loss

Poorly aligned teeth can put extra stress and pressure on teeth and the jawbone.

Poor alignment can cause:
  • Receding gums
  • Gum disease
  • Indentations at the gum line
  • Cold sensitivity
  • Chipped or fractured teeth
  • Tooth loss

Overall Health Risks

Problems that start in your mouth can spread to the rest of your body.

Severe gum infections may increase the risks of:
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Lung diseases
  • Problems in pregnancy
  • Complications related to diabetes
  • Alzheimer's disease

Straight Teeth Are Healthier Teeth

When your teeth are aligned, the health benefits are clear. With healthier gums, improved hygiene, and less wear and trauma, the choice is easy to make.

How does Invisalign treatment work?

Invisalign clear aligners use the most advanced technology to give you your best smile yet! Using a series of clear aligners, your treatment can straighten your teeth with 75% more predictability. Plus, your smile is shaped more comfortably than with braces.
