Invisalign was developed in 1997 with the sole purpose of helping people with their orthodontic issues, while still retaining an aesthetic appeal with their smile. In addition to creating straight teeth without the hassle of brackets and wires, this innovative technology has numerous benefits to users. Here are 3 reasons you should consider Invisalign for your orthodontic treatment at Glass Orthodontics.
IMPROVE SPEECH AND PHONETICS
Invisalign is quite effective in improving speech by aligning your teeth in a way that you are able to pronounce words more efficiently. For instance, some people have longer front teeth which inhibit their speech. Others speak with a whistling sound due to a gap or an open bite, which can make it hard to pronounce some words. Invisalign comes in handy in correcting these issues, and has the added benefit of helping to adjust your speech, and improve pronunciation and phonetics.
PROPER BRUSHING AND FLOSSING OF TEETH
Teeth that do not fit well against each other often lead to a buildup of plaque. When food gets held up like this, it attracts bacteria, which, after some time, causes harm to your gums and teeth. It can also lead to a throbbing pain and gum recession that can make you quite uncomfortable. Invisalign solves this problem by properly positioning your teeth to make it easy for you to brush and floss. This contributes to better dental hygiene and overall oral health.
PROPER JAW POSITIONING
Misaligned jaws may cause clicking and popping, pain in joints, and inefficient chewing or inability to chew altogether. These complications can have adverse and long-term effects on the health of your teeth, gums and jaw. Invisalign aligners work to align your teeth and to ensure your bite is properly positioned.
Some patients suffer from sore facial muscles as a result of grinding food or biting into something hard. They may also suffer from temporomandibular disorder, where the jaw is misaligned. Invisalign treatment is able to correct this problem by relieving TMD symptoms while properly aligning a patient’s bite.
Invisalign treatment can do more than just straighten your teeth and smile. Proper jaw alignment and the correct bite are always the goal at Glass Orthodontics for our patients.
