Straighter Teeth and Healthier Smiles with Invisalign Clear Braces


Let’s be honest, you’re checking out our site because you want a more radiant, healthier smile… right? That’s typically the reasoning behind visiting the website of a local dentist, at least. Well, one of the most proven ways to ensure that your smile becomes healthy – and stays healthy – is by ensuring that your teeth are straight. Properly aligned teeth aren’t just a confidence booster, they have a measurable impact on your dental health. And, with Invisalign, these benefits can be reaped without the stigma or hassle of traditional metal braces. In this post, we’re going to look at three of the major health benefits of straight teeth.

Easier to clean

It shouldn’t be a surprise that straight teeth are easier to clean. With fewer gaps, nooks and crannies for food to hide in, brushing and flossing are more effective. As a result, plaque and tartar are more easily removed and the long-term ill effects of those agents are avoided.

Reduced risk of gum disease

Crowded or widely-spaced teeth often lead to the early stages of periodontal disease: tender, red gums. When teeth are aligned, the gums fit more snugly around the teeth, creating a more effective defense against the onset of unhealthy gums.

Overall dental health

As they are both easier to clean and reduce the risk of gum disease, straight teeth are a leading contributor to an overall healthy smile. The ability to more effectively remove bacteria from straight teeth means that, overall, the teeth are healthier, happier and more protected.

At Halonen Family Dentistry, we are proud to offer the industry’s best solution for crowded or unevenly-spaced teeth: Invisalign clear braces. Less intrusive and as effective as traditional braces, Invisalign is an ideal way to achieve a brilliant, radiant smile.
