- Invisalign®️ aligners are clear and virtually invisible in your mouth.
- Invisalign®️ aligners are removable for easier eating, brushing, and flossing.
- Invisalign®️ aligners are custom-designed to fit your unique bite and tooth structure.
Straight teeth are healthy teeth
The primary benefit of orthodontics, including Invisalign®️, is healthy, aligned teeth. You will also appreciate the lifestyle benefits previously mentioned (more on that in a moment).
Keep in mind that there’s more to your teeth than their appearance. Your tooth alignment (or lack of it) impacts a variety of other oral health issues.
Orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign®️, is effective for solving those dental problems. Your longterm oral health quality depends on straight, properly aligned teeth.
What Invisalign®️ does for your teeth besides straighten them
1. Produces better tooth and gum health
Poor tooth alignment sets in motion a number of dental problems. Many of them go unnoticed until treatment is required.
Misaligned or crooked teeth can increase your risk of tooth decay or gum disease. The spaces created by tooth misalignment give oral bacteria more room to thrive and multiply. Decay, cavities, and periodontal (gum) disease are caused by an overrun of bacteria.
Invisalign®️ gradually moves your teeth into healthy alignment. The gaps between your teeth are eliminated giving bacteria less room to enter and do damage.

2. Enhances your lifestyle and your attitude about dental health
Orthodontic treatment brings a number of changes to your daily routine. For example, traditional braces are often uncomfortable. The wires and brackets can also require more attention with your daily oral hygiene.
Food particles are more easily trapped beneath standard braces. This makes routine care important to avoid decay.
Invisalign®️ aligners can be removed. You will enjoy eating and be able to brush and floss without being hindered by braces.
Your Invisalign®️ orthodontic treatment improves your oral health and your attitude about it. Straight, properly aligned, healthy teeth can increase your motivation to prioritize your overall dental health.
