If we were to ask you what some of the benefits of straight teeth are, what would you say? You would likely think that it is an esthetics thing and that if you want to look good, you should have straight teeth. While this is often the case, there are health benefits hidden behind straight teeth too. According to the American Dental Association, people who straighten their teeth will actually experience better overall oral health. It is important that you take care of your smile and a poorly taken care of smile can be the gateway to other problems within the body. Invisalign provides you with that confidence that you need and at Greenhills Dental Care, we are proud to be able to offer you the option to choose Invisalign in our Fremont, CA office.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR PERIODONTAL EVALUATION IN BRENTWOOD
When you have straight teeth, your teeth will be easier to clean and you will not have to worry about a buildup of plaque and food particles. Invisalign eliminates the difficulty of taking care of your teeth while you have braces on. You can remove the aligner whenever you want and whenever you need to, which allows you to brush and floss properly.
HEALTHY GUMS AND TEETH
Your gums can suffer when you do not have straight teeth or good oral health. In fact, you may experience red, tender, and swollen or bleeding gums and it is painful. Unaligned teeth do not have the proper gum protection, which means your teeth are more vulnerable to decay.
Periodontal disease often arises in the mouths of people who have teeth that are misshapen or crooked. Talk to Dr. Bien today about your teeth and whether Invisalign can straighten them.
Your teeth are often referred to as the window to your health and when you think about it, you will get it. If you have poorly cared for teeth, you may have other infections within your body or you may be suffering from periodontal disease. Clean and healthy teeth show that your smile is important to you and that you likely do not have any other issues.
Periodontal and gum disease is caused by bacteria present within your mouth. If you do not have the bacteria treated, then you will notice that you develop sores in your mouth, experience tooth decay, or even have gums that bleed. The ADA wants people to know that oral infections, especially those NOT treated, can lead to serious health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, stroke, pneumonia, and more.
Invisalign makes your overall dental health easier, better, and healthier, which reduces your risk for serious complications. When your teeth are properly aligned, you will find that your overall dental health is improved.
