Dental Health Benefits of Invisalign

For both teens and adults, Invisalign® clear aligners provide teeth straightening results without the hassle of traditional orthodontia and in less overall time.

But did you know that straightening crooked or uneven teeth isn’t just an aesthetic concern? Misaligned teeth can damage your bite and are more prone to decay, chipping, and other potential damage.

At Sendero Dental Studio, Jeffrey Barrera, DDS and our expert care team recommends Invisalign aligners for our new and existing patients in Rancho Mission Viejo and Ladera Ranch, California. Here’s what we want you to know about the potential health benefits of Invisalign.

Safeguard your teeth with straightening

It makes sense if you think about it: Issues with your teeth’s alignment can lead to larger problems. Your mouth works best when everything lines up right, without gaps or overlaps for food and harmful bacteria to gather and create pockets of tooth decay.

The revolutionary computer visualizing technology that we use to create your custom Invisalign trays lets us pre-track the quickest path to perfect alignment for all of your teeth. As you use the sequence of invisible clear plastic alignment trays, you could show off your newly straightened smile in just 12 months or so.

With straighter teeth, you have a lower risk of an interproximal cavity developing between two of your teeth. You’re also less likely to see chipping or cracks if your bite is aligned and pressure evenly distributed throughout your mouth. 

Whether you have an overbite, a crossbite, an underbite, or an open bite, Invisalign can help.

Improve your overall oral health

Straightening your teeth improves your overall oral health, as well. If your teeth are crooked or overcrowded, hardened deposits of plaque and tartar can lead to gum disease. 

And if your teeth are uneven, daily wear-and-tear can cause more enamel deterioration and even stress fractures over time.

With the Invisalign system, you don’t have to deal with oral health hassles like lesions and sore spots, as you would with the metal brackets and wires of braces. And you benefit from easier oral hygiene routines. Just remove your Invisalign aligners at any time to clean them and your teeth.

You can take your trays out when you eat, so you don’t have to give up your favorite foods during your straightening treatment or worry about snags or popped bands. Just leave your trays in for at least 22 hours each day to ensure the best results.
