North Arlington patients have long known about the wonderful treatment options provided by the Smile Design Specialists. But, many patients know very little about the many other benefits of straightening crooked or misaligned teeth with Invisalign. True, traditional braces straighten teeth in a similar manner, but the benefits of the treatment are often outweighed by the problems that come along with their uncomfortable and inconvenient side effects.
Why Should You Choose Invisalign?
Invisalign is a convenient and comfortable way to straighten your teeth. However there are many additional benefits of Invisalign including the following:
1) Improve Your Digestion
When your teeth are crooked or misaligned, chewing can be difficult. Additionally, when food isn’t chewed properly, it can impact digestion and create problems processing food. Straightening your teeth can improve your ability to chew properly and result in better digestion.
2) Eliminate Jaw Pain
Crooked teeth can cause jaw pain, grinding, and uneven tooth wear in many patients. Traditional braces can help fix these issues, but their bulk and sharp pieces can cause additional pain and discomfort when you chew, bite, smile, or participate in other activities. Invisalign patients can alleviate mouth pain while helping patients obtain a straight and stunning smile.
3) Get Healthier Gums
Traditional braces can allow food and bacteria to become trapped between teeth and gums. Misaligned teeth can create the similar problems. Both of these issues can increase the chances of gum disease and other awful oral health diseases. On the other hand, Invisalign clear aligners can be removed for brushing and flossing. This helps patients achieve healthier teeth and gums, as well as a cleaner mouth.
4) Reduce Tooth Decay
Invisalign patients have much less trouble keeping their mouth and teeth clean than those patients who utilize traditional metal braces. However, unlike metal braces, Invisalign aligners can easily be taken out for eating, activities, and oral hygiene. And, when you can brush and floss properly, patients can reduce cavities, tooth decay, gum problems, and bad breath.
5) Better Overall Health
Recent dental studies have shown that patients with oral health problems have higher rates of depression, anxiety, gum disease, heart disease, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s, and other dangerous health problems.
6) Increase Your Self-Confidence
Most people already know that their crooked smile impacts their self-confidence, but many never suspect that it can effect their overall health. Patients with poor oral health have been shown to have a greater risk for depression, anxiety, and other mental health problems. Luckily, when you fix your smile with Invisalign, you can help reduce your chances of suffering from many of these ailments.
7) Improve The Shape Of Your Face
Crooked or misaligned teeth can change the shape of your face and leave you with a less-than-attractive smile. When you fix problems like overbites or crooked teeth, you can restore a more normal shape to the face and bring about a more attractive smile.

8) Reduce Dietary Restrictions
Metal braces can make it hard to eat the foods you love. Foods like whole apples, corn on the cob, and popcorn must be avoided with traditional braces. Alternatively, Invisalign offers smooth plastic aligners that can be removed for eating all your favorite foods.
9) Do The Things You Love
Wearing metal brackets and wires can be painful when trying to play a musical instrument or participate in sporting events. Invisalign smooth aligners can reduce discomfort, enhance convenience, and easily be removed to do the things you love. You can even take your aligners out for pictures and special events. Patients need only be sure to wear their aligners for at least 22 hours per day for maximum effectiveness.
