What are the benefits of teeth straightening?

Straightening your teeth can help you enjoy improved oral health and lower your chances of developing cavities or gum disease. Besides improving your confidence in your appearance, straight teeth can also help you have a more comfortable and balanced bite.

Benefits of straightening your teeth with invisalign


You can take out your aligners any time to eat or drink whatever you like.

Virtually invisible

Invisalign® lives up to its name. No one will notice that you are straightening your teeth unless they look very closely at your smile.

Easy oral hygiene

You can brush and floss your teeth as normal and clean your aligners separately.

Save time

Your checkup appointments at our practice will be brief and few because it does not take much time to check the fit of your aligners and provide you with new ones. There are no metal wires to adjust with Invisalign.

Benefits of straightening your teeth

Getting a straighter smile will make you feel more confident in your appearance as you will no longer have to worry about whether people are looking at your crooked teeth.

The benefits do not end there, however.

Teeth straightening may also:
  • Prevent dental decay

  • Improve your oral hygiene routine

  • Lower your risk of developing gum health problems

  • Relieve TemporoMandibular Joint (TMJ) problems

  • Prevent premature or uneven wear on your tooth enamel

It may surprise you to learn that orthodontic treatment can have so many benefits. This is because straight teeth are healthy teeth and if your teeth are out of alignment, then they do not fit together and function as they should. Poorly aligned teeth can trap more plaque bacteria and change the feel of your bite, so correcting tooth alignment with braces or aligners can lead to a reduction in the problems caused by crooked teeth.

The most noticeable benefit of teeth straightening, however, is that your smile will look amazing when your treatment is finished.

What's included in every Invisalign treatment plan?

Face-to-face doctor care

From day one, your Invisalign-trained doctor will walk you through everything you need to know about wearing your aligners, so that you can get the most out of your treatment.

Custom-made aligners

Everyone’s smile is different, which is why each of your aligners are individually fitted and trimmed. This is designed to provide you with a more comfortable and better fitting aligner.

Decades of experience

Invisalign is a leading industry and has a research team that uses their expertise in biomechanics and material science to improve your path to a beautiful smile.

You may be surprised to know that the benefits of having properly aligned teeth extend far beyond a confident smile!

The American Dental Association states that straightening your teeth can actually affect your overall dental health. Part of having a healthy smile is having a straight smile. Thanks to Invisalign clear aligners, you can have confidence in your smile and reduce your risk for tooth decay and gum disease.

Health Benefits

Healthier teeth & gums

Swollen, red gums typically are the result of having teeth that are crowded or too widely spaced as well as being signs of periodontal disease. When teeth are properly aligned the gums fit more securely around the teeth which allows for the strongest and healthiest defense against potential periodontal problems.

This is where Invisalign comes in. The comfortable, clear aligners gently and gradually move your teeth into the proper position – without using any brackets or wires.

Easier teeth cleaning

A huge advantage of wearing Invisalign clear aligners over traditional braces is not getting food stuck in your brackets and wires. With traditional braces removing all the food that gets trapped is a huge challenge. This can often lead to plaque buildup and eventually tooth decay. With Invisalign, you can remove the aligners so it’s easy to continue brushing and flossing your teeth the way you would prior to Invisalign.

Overall health

Your teeth and gums – and how they look when you smile – say a lot about your overall health. Consider them a window to the health of your body.

Bacteria causes tooth decay and gum disease and can cause mouth sores, tender or bleeding gums, bad breath, and possible tooth loss. Did you know that oral infections can lead to other more serious ailments such as heart disease, stroke, pneumonia, and diabetes (according to studies by the American Dental Association).

Invisalign clear aligners can make daily oral hygiene easier when straightening your teeth. This results in a risk of possible problems. Plus, correctly aligned teeth can also alleviate issues caused by an improper bite, speech, or chewing difficulties, jaw problems, and increased wear on the tooth enamel. Invisalign addresses all of these orthodontic issues which give you the confidence of a great smile and the increase in the likelihood of improved oral health.
