If you have crooked teeth, you’re probably focused on how the misalignment impacts the aesthetics of your smile. But crooked teeth, crowded teeth, or overlapped teeth also wreak havoc on your oral health and put you at risk for cavities and gum disease.

Your dentist in Pike Creek, DE has helped many patients straighten crooked teeth with Invisalign. The benefits are a straighter smile, but you’ll also enjoy improved oral health. 

How Invisalign in Pike Creek, DE Improves Oral Health

Crooked or crowded teeth make you feel self-conscious, but that’s not the only problem.

Difficult Oral Hygiene

Oral hygiene is difficult when your teeth are crooked, crowded, or overlap each other. You won’t be able to brush all surfaces of your teeth, and you may not even be able to slide your floss in between your teeth to remove plaque and food debris.

When you don’t brush and floss adequately or miss these spaces because you can’t reach them, you are in jeopardy of developing tooth decay and periodontal disease.

In some cases of tooth misalignment where the gums don’t fit securely around the teeth, bacteria can lead to periodontal disease.

Bite Problems and Oral Health

Bite problems, such as an overbite or underbite, are common with tooth misalignment and come with their own set of challenges. A misaligned dental bite can interfere with proper chewing and put excess strain on your teeth and muscles in your jaw, increasing your risk of a worn or broken teeth and TMJ problems.

Invisalign Delivers a Straight, Healthy Smile

Treatment with Invisalign straightens crooked and crowded teeth and also improves your oral health. The crystal-clear aligners are virtually invisible, so no one has to know you’re straightening your teeth. Invisalign treatment is also convenient because you remove them for meals and to brush and floss thoroughly.
