10 Brace Problems You Can Avoid with Invisalign

Invisalign perfectly fits your smile and feels comfortable to wear. Here is a review of the brace problems you can avoid with Invisalign.

Prevent Periodontitis and Associated Illnesses

When your teeth are straight and aligned correctly, the gums can tighten around your teeth, leading to better periodontal health. With Invisalign braces, you can better brush and floss your teeth, which means you will be less likely to develop tooth decay, which can lead to or exacerbate other illnesses, such as oral cancer, eating disorders, anemia, and diabetes.

Less Wear and Tear on Your Teeth

One of the surprising benefits of Invisalign is that they work to protect your teeth while you sleep, almost like a nightguard. Your Invisalign braces help prevent grinding that can occur while you sleep, which, if left untreated, can cause a lot of extra wear and tear on those precious pearly whites.

You Can Continue Your Dental Care During Your Invisalign Braces Treatment

It should stand to reason that no matter what dental treatment you receive, you can continue to receive dental care. You do still need dental care while wearing Invisalign. Continuing with your routine dental care will reduce the buildup of plaque and tartar, and hygienic cleaning will help prevent cavities and gum disease development.

Improve Your Mental and Emotional Outlook on Life

Most of us understand the benefits of a smile. When we are proud of our teeth and comfortable with our smiles, we are more likely to smile. It’s good for mental and emotional health. When we smile, neurotransmitters in our body are released, reducing stress levels, and pushing away negative feelings.

Relieve TMJ Symptoms, Such as Headaches

A common cause of TMJ disorder is jaw misalignment. And braces are a highly effective way of correcting this alignment. Thus, with Invisalign clear aligners, the upper and lower jaw is repositioned to align your teeth and frequently eliminate the pain and discomfort.

Easier To Clean Your Teeth

You may see this as a repeated theme, but the Dr. Alex Rubinov Dental team wants to reiterate how much easier it will be to clean your teeth when you have Invisalign braces. Invisalign clear aligners are customized to fit your mouth and are removable. This means you don’t have to use a unique tool when cleaning your teeth like you would if you had traditional metal braces. You can brush and floss your teeth like normal. But better yet, when you are done with your Invisalign treatment, you’ll have straighter teeth and be better able to clean those spaces between your teeth.

Freshen Breath

You will get straighter and better-aligned teeth when you have Invisalign braces. This will make it easier for you to brush your teeth twice a day and floss twice daily, as you will be better able to get into tight places. You are more likely to brush away plaque that can lead to bacteria, causing tooth decay and bad breath. Straighter teeth mean fresher breath.

Relieve Sleep Apnea Symptoms

You may never have guessed it, but Invisalign teeth can also reduce the symptoms related to sleep apnea. The growth process associated with Invisalign technology inevitably increases the amount of space inside your mouth.

The Importance of Cleaning Your Retainers

Cleaning your retainers must be part of your oral hygiene regimen. Using a soft-bristled brush, gently brush your retainers each time you brush your teeth. Do not apply toothpaste because abrasive particles damage the retained surface and craft spheres for correct bacterial colonization.
