How Invisalign Helps My Heart

Along with improving your smile, Invisalign aligners have many other benefits when it comes to your oral and overall health. The Invisalign treatment is designed to straighten your teeth, while promoting good oral habits. Practicing good oral hygiene will only help prevent gum disease and other serious oral issues. A healthy mouth means less disease-causing bacteria living in your mouth.

Don’t Invisalign trays just straighten your teeth?

Invisalign aligners are custom, clear trays that straighten teeth overtime and are a noninvasive alternative to braces. They are made of plastic as opposed to uncomfortable metal braces which makes them so appealing. Invisalign trays are almost invisible to the eye whereas braces are very noticeable and not as attractive.

How will Invisalign trays help my heart?

The Invisalign treatment will adjust your teeth while improving your oral health. Poor oral hygiene has been connected to serious health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, pneumonia, premature birth, and more. Though research has yet to determine the exact correlation between poor oral hygiene and these problems, we are seeing a link.

Practicing good oral hygiene prevents an abundance of bacteria from building up in your mouth. Though you do need some bacteria in your mouth to fight off the harmful bacteria, too much bacteria leads to gum disease and tooth decay. Using Invisalign trays, in combination with good oral hygiene habits, is the best prevention from health issues.

After using your Invisalign aligners for the allotted amount of time, you will not only notice a difference in your smile, but in your overall health as well.
