Dr. Steven Hever and our Finesse Dental Care team offer Invisalign clear aligners for our patients in Westlake Village, California wanting straighter teeth. The American Dental Association (ADA) has found that an aligned smile is good for one’s health as well as fixing oral issues derived from a misaligned bite, such as chewing difficulties, problems with the jaw, and wear and tear on tooth enamel.

With Invisalign, orthodontic issues can be corrected while improving health. Let’s take a look at how Invisalign can benefit your teeth and your smile health:

–Gum Health: Healthy gums support your teeth, but if they are red and swollen because your misaligned teeth are preventing them from doing their job, you can find yourself at risk for periodontal disease. This can happen when your teeth are crowded together or spaced too widely apart.

Fortunately, when teeth are aligned, your gums can support your chompers properly and lower your risk of gum disease. Invisalign helps align our teeth so the gums can do their job while your teeth gradually shift into alignment.

–Oral Hygiene: A healthy smile is a result of diligent daily hygiene. Traditional braces can make removing food particles and plaque from brackets and wires challenging, but failing to remove this oral debris over time puts you at greater risk for tooth decay. Invisalign aligners are removable so you can easily maintain your brushing and flossing routine without worrying about cleaning around brackets and wires.

–Systemic Health: Your mouth is an ideal environment for bacteria which leads to tooth decay and gum disease. This is prevented with daily brushing and flossing. Without this consistent care, you may find yourself with sores in the mouth or tender, bleeding gums, halitosis (bad breath) or possible tooth loss.

The ADA has linked oral infections to heart disease, diabetes, pneumonia, and even stroke. This makes straight teeth a benefit to your mouth and body. Invisalign will align your smile even as it helps you maintain a healthy smile and a healthy body.
