Crossover appeal. Consider it the “cherry on top” of whatever you already know has value.
You’re aware that orthodontic treatment straightens your teeth. That alone is typically enough to persuade you to make the investment.
Straight, aligned teeth can transform your appearance. Sure, looks aren’t everything but they sure do provide a boost to your confidence.
Invisalign® delivers an appealing smile. And yet there’s a crossover benefit that you may not be aware of.
The American Dental Association (ADA) confirms what treatments like Invisalign® provide. They have determined that overall you will experience improved dental health following orthodontic treatment.
Straight teeth are only the beginning of what Invisalign® helps you achieve.
1-Experience less impact on your lifestyle than with standard orthodontic treatment.
You’re not alone if you have postponed orthodontic treatment because of the hassle. It’s much easier to avoid traditional braces due to the impact they have on your lifestyle.
Traditional braces use brackets and wires to bring your teeth into alignment. It’s easier for food to be caught and your risk of plaque build-up increases since basic dental hygiene is a bit more difficult.
Invisalign® uses removable, clear aligners to correct your misaligned teeth. You can remove your aligners for eating and when you brush and floss your teeth.
The removable design enables you to eliminate harmful bacteria from your teeth and gums. This reduces your risk of tooth decay and other potentially harmful dental issues.
2-Improve the health of your teeth and gums
Poor tooth alignment puts your teeth and gums at risk. More so, you might not be aware of what you cannot see happening.
Gum disease and tooth decay can have a silent impact on your health. Many symptoms are not noticeable until damage has occurred.
Crooked teeth are as vulnerable as your otherwise straight teeth. This makes it vital that you schedule consistent dental check-ups and teeth cleanings.
The symptoms of gum disease can be diagnosed and treated before they get worse. Your misaligned teeth are an effective reminder to have a thorough check-up.
Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign® will restore your teeth to their proper alignment. At the same time the procedure can help reduce your risk of damage to your teeth and gums.
3-Establish lifelong healthy habits.
There’s a proven connection between good oral health and your physical health. Straight, aligned teeth can increase your desire to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Health problems arise when you give poor attention to your dental care. Gum disease, tooth decay, bleeding gums, bad breath, and occasionally tooth loss can result from inconsistent or neglected dental hygiene.
Invisalign® improves your appearance and how you feel about it. Straight teeth are healthier teeth and they’re a good sign you’re prioritizing your health.
When you look good you feel good and you take steps to assure that continues. How’s that for crossover appeal?
