A Really, Really Good Reason for Invisalign in Boulder

August 12, 2017

close-up of a beautiful smileYou have probably heard about Invisalign, the orthodontic treatment that lets you enjoy all the benefits of braces without the, um, braces part. A lot of people think the main reason to get Invisalign is because straighter teeth = a prettier smile. That’s true, but we’ve got one more reason to choose Invisalign in Boulder.

Straight Teeth Promote Better Systemic Health

Your teeth don’t exist in a vacuum. Instead, they and the surrounding oral structures are an integral part of your overall health — and making sure they are as healthy as possible can help you enjoy better systemic well-being. 

When your teeth line up the way they should, your general health stands to improve. Properly-aligned teeth are easier to brush and floss properly. Anyone who has ever tried to floss crowded teeth knows how difficult it can be.

Proper oral hygiene is important because it reduces your risk of developing tooth decay and gum disease. Reducing your risk of the latter is especially significant, given the fact that gum disease has been linked to…

There’s also the function of your smile to consider. When your upper and lower jaw do not fit together properly, you are at a higher risk of experiencing pain in your TMJ, or the temporomandibular joint that helps your mouth open and close. The effects of TMD (temporomandibular joint dysfunction) are uncomfortable at best, and excruciating at their worst.

How Invisalign Works

Invisalign abides by the same orthodontic principles as traditional braces — gradual movement through focused pressure — except the treatment uses clear plastic aligners rather than metal brackets and wires. The trays are practically invisible and removable, too.  

Your dentist will talk you through what to expect with Invisalign. You will need to wear the trays almost around the clock, removing them only to eat and brush/floss. Every week or two, you will advance to the next aligner in the series, gradually working your way to a properly-aligned, beautiful smile.

Invisalign corrects the following orthodontic issues:

  • Crowding
  • Gapped teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite

More significant orthodontic issues will usually require treatment with traditional braces. Scheduling a consultation with an Invisalign provider will help you decide whether or not Invisalign is the best option for your smile.
