Dental Health Benefits of Invisalign®

Invisalign® is a popular way to straighten uneven or crooked teeth. It’s grown in popularity over the years because it uses clear, plastic aligners rather than the metal brackets and wires used with traditional braces. 

While often used for cosmetic purposes, Invisalign can also provide benefits to your overall oral health.

Our dentist, Dr. Kenia Cuevas, at VidaDental in Doral, Florida, is an expert in preventive care and cosmetic dentistry. Along with our team, she can help you regain your beautiful smile and improve your dental health with Invisalign. 

How Invisalign works

Invisalign requires no metal, which is why many people choose it. It requires minimal intervention and becomes almost invisible when worn. Invisalign works in a series of trays that gradually shift your teeth into place. 

Each tray is manufactured so that one tray is straighter than the next. Because your teeth move often (up to 0.25 mm per tray), you receive a new set every two weeks. Each week, your teeth continue to move toward their ideal state, eventually giving you a straight smile. 

Invisalign is a convenient option for those on the go. With easily removable aligners and easy-to-clean trays, the convenience factor goes unmatched. 

How Invisalign can improve your dental health

Invisalign has a lot of dental health benefits. The aligners can safely straighten dental arches by leveling and derotating the teeth. Gapped teeth, overbites, underbites, and crowded teeth are just a handful of conditions commonly treated with the help of Invisalign aligners.

Many of these conditions can cause long-term damage. Gapped teeth leave gums unprotected and can speed up periodontal disease. Overbites and underbites can lead to joint problems that put stress on your jaw. 

Overly crowded teeth frequently lead to plaque accumulation because it’s difficult to floss effectively and can result in cavities forming at these crowded areas. 

Invisalign addresses all of these problems and more, promoting your best possible oral health. 

How Invisalign improves your smile

While many opt for Invisalign to treat underlying dental problems, you can also get Invisalign for purely cosmetic reasonsl. Invisalign treats all the same cosmetic issues as braces, including:

Because of Invisalign’s convenient process, straightforward upkeep, and generally shorter treatment time, people have hopped on board with Invisalign treatments.
