First, it’s important to understand that misaligned teeth are not only a cosmetic issue. In fact, properly aligned teeth offer many health benefits. This is why Halonen Family Dentistry offers orthodontic treatment in the form of Invisalign in Battle Creek for our patients. In this post, we will look at ways that aligning your teeth with Invisalign can help to not only improve your smile, but also improve your oral health overall.
Most importantly, it’s much easier to properly clean aligned teeth properly. This is because teeth that are misaligned are often overcrowded and overlap, making more difficult – or even impossible – to floss in between them or properly brush the whole tooth’s surface area. You may also need Invisalign because of gaps and extra space between your teeth. When you have this issue, food is more likely to get stuck and lodged in between your teeth. The inability to floss and brush properly can cause gum disease. Also, having properly aligned teeth will allow your gums to fit closely to your teeth, helping to prevent gum disease.
At Halonen Family Dentistry in Battle Creek, we know the importance of properly aligned, straight teeth when it comes to your oral health. So, in order to serve our patients who are in need of orthodontic treatment, we are happy to offer Invisalign in Battle Creek as an alternative to traditional wire / bracket braces. Invisalign is also a favorite of teen and adult patients who want straighter teeth but would prefer something a little more discreet and less noticeable. If your teeth are not properly aligned, do not hesitate to contact us so we can see if you are a candidate for Invisalign. We look forward to helping you improve your smile and your oral health!
