Health Benefits of Getting Teeth Straightened

Getting crooked teeth straightened has helped a lot of people become more confident and sociable. Plenty of literature exists of people even sharing how having better teeth has helped them in job interviews. The impact of teeth on self-esteem is not to be taken lightly, as a lot of people have shied away from opportunities because they feel very self-conscious.

Our patients who have undergone our Invisalign treatment have shared how their lives have changed with straighter teeth. You can listen to their stories to know more about what they’ve been through and get in-depth Invisalign reviews.

Here at MiSmile, we have seen how Invisalign has dramatically changed our patients’ disposition for the better. We take pride in the knowledge that we have helped them become healthier. We would like you to be as happy and healthy and would like to share with you how getting your teeth straightened can improve your health.

Healthier Gums and Teeth

Crooked teeth are prone to plaque build-up because it is hard to clean between teeth. This is harmful because plaque breaks down the enamel; your tooth’s protective covering. Plus, the bacteria plaque harbours can infect your gums and cause periodontal diseases like gingivitis. So getting your teeth straightened helps both your teeth and your gums.

Having crowded teeth can also wear your tooth abnormally because teeth that are not supposed to rub against each other do. This makes the enamel wear off at a faster rate.

Less Oral Discomfort and Injuries

Those with crooked teeth are more prone to mouth sores, cuts and infections because their irregularly patterned teeth cut into their mouth’s lining and other soft tissue.

Crooked teeth are also more likely to crack and break when they are protruding. If you enjoy sporting activities, you might have had some difficulty fitting in your mouth guard and might have had more chances of getting cuts in your mouth. Having orthodontic treatment can then be of help to you.

Healthier Body

If you have misaligned teeth and you regularly get tension headaches, it could be because of the uneven pressure your teeth puts on your jaw. So if your headaches have a dental cause, you’d find yourself getting fewer tension headaches if you had your teeth straightened.

Having straighter teeth also benefits your heart. The American Heart Association has found an association between gum disease and heart disease. So getting your teeth aligned can help make your gums healthier and lessen the risk of heart conditions.

We care for your overall health as much as your dental health and we want to lessen your risks for different diseases. Let us help you on your journey to straighter teeth with Invisalign.

Invisalign are clear aligners that straighten teeth without uncomfortable and apparent braces. These virtually invisible aligners are removable so you can eat with ease and brush your teeth easily.
