Invisalign is an increasingly popular option among Australians, especially teens and adults. A winning smile is obviously one of the key reasons, but did you know there are a number of benefits to this treatment?
- To make it easier to clean and maintain the health of your teeth and gums. Overlapping teeth create nooks and crannies that can act as a cave for harmful bacteria to hide in. This can cause cavities in the teeth or inflammation of the gums, also known as gingivitis.
- To help prevent gum recession and gingivitis. Invisalign and clear aligners are not just about straightening the top parts of the teeth that you can see, but also making sure that the roots are in line too. Think of it like building a fence, we need to make sure that all the fence posts are perfectly straight, or they will loosen quickly and the fence will eventually collapse. If the teeth are angulated poorly, the gums and jawbone holding them in will recede over time.
- A wider smile. Have you ever seen someone who appears to have straight teeth but something still doesn’t look right when they smile? We sure have! That is because although all their teeth are straight, the size of the arch on which the straight teeth sit is too narrow. When looking from the front, it looks like they only have 6 top and bottom teeth. Our philosophy is to create wide and vibrant smiles, not just straight teeth!
