The Health Benefits of Invisalign

Did you know?…

Two-thirds to three-fourths of adults have some degree of malocclusion (crooked teeth). Malocclusion presents many challenges to good oral hygiene.


  • Overlapped or crooked teeth are much more difficult to clean  at home
  • Usually, bone is irreversibly lost around misaligned teeth.
  • Several large national studies have shown that the bacteria associated with periodontal disease can play a significant role in our overall health and is specifically linked to cardiac disease, diabetes, stokes, pancreatitis and pre-term under weight babies.
  • The unique bacteria found around crooked or overlapped teeth has been shown to be much more aggressive and virulent than the bacteria around correctly positioned teeth.
  • Crooked teeth left untreated will always worsen over time!

The simple fact is straight teeth are healthier

More and more Americans are choosing aesthetic, low profile treatment solutions to get straighter teeth and correct their misaligned teeth.  One of the most popular of these treatment options is Invisalign, a method of straightening teeth using a series of clear, almost invisible, removable aligners. Invisalign uses a computer-generating program to make sets of custom-made aligners that move teeth in very precise increments. While a beautiful, healthy smile is the most obvious benefit of orthodontic treatment, recent studies show that straight teeth can also have a positive impact on overall physical health and self-esteem.  And smilin’ big make you good all over.

    This is some great information, and I appreciate your point that straight teeth are healthier than crooked ones. My teeth are pretty crooked, and I didn’t realize that it could be detrimental to my dental health! I’d rather not go through the embarrassment of having brackets and wires at my age, so I’ll definitely look into using Invisalign as a less noticeable option. Thanks for the great post!

    Thanks for sharing this blog post with us. Definitely invisalign braces are helpful in maintaining oral health care & improves your smile. Ultimately it builds confidence among you and give you a new look. Due to their almost invisible feature, these are highly used & recommended to the patient.

    I didn’t stop to think that straighter teeth are healthier. But it does make sense! I never had to get braces but I do have two teeth that I would like to be a bit straighter. I have considered Invisalign to help with those pesky and crooked teeth!

    I love that we have the option of low profile treatments like Invisalign or even incognito braces to help our teeth get straight. I remember having braces as a kid and they were big and bold. I would love for my kids not to feel as self conscious as I did!

  9. I agree with you that with the orthodontic treatment we can get healthy smile and beautiful smile. When your teeth are crowded then it can cause problems with your gums and gum diseases. This time invisalign is very beneficial for you because this device move your teeth at correct position and prevent gum disease.
