Annapolis Dental Center is happy to announce that we are now offering “Invisalign” to our patients. Your way to a healthier smile by straitening your teeth. You may be surprised to know that the benefits of having properly aligned teeth using Invisalign extend far beyond a confident smile. According to the American Dental Association, straightening your teeth can actually significantly affect your overall dental health.
Healthier Teeth and Gums
Swollen, red gums can often be the result of having teeth that are too widely spaced or very crowded. Unfortunately, these are also signs of periodontal disease. When teeth are properly aligned, it helps the gums fit more securely around the teeth, allowing for the strongest and healthiest defense against potential periodontal problems. That’s where Invisalign comes in. The comfortable and clear aligners gently and gradually begin to move your teeth into the proper position – without unsightly brackets and wires.
One of the biggest challenges of having braces is removing all the food that gets trapped in the brackets and wires. This can often lead to plaque buildup and eventually tooth decay. With Invisalign, the aligners are removable, so it’s easy to continue brushing and flossing your teeth the way you normally do.
Think of your teeth as a window to the health of your body. Your teeth and gums – and how they look to others when you smile – say a lot about your overall health. If you’re taking good care of both, you’re probably taking good care of the rest of you.
