When you have misaligned or crooked teeth, it’s harder to remove the plaque and bacteria. Plaque is a sticky film of bacteria that forms on everyone’s teeth all the time. This can lead to bleeding and inflamed gums, soft tissue damage, gum disease, bad breath, bone loss, and tooth loss. Bacteria forms a film underneath the gums particularly on crooked or misaligned teeth, further trapping bacteria and debris. The combination of bacteria and toxins damages and triggers inflammation.
The mouth is a window into the health of the body. Problems that start in your mouth can spread to the rest of your body. Severe gum infections may increase the risk of your health. Gum disease has been linked to serious chronic conditions such as Heart disease, Arterial blockage, Stroke, Lung Disease, Diabetes, Pregnancy complication, Alzheimer’s, Dementia, Liver, and Pancreatic Disease.
When your teeth are properly aligned, it’s easier to brush and floss, and less likely to have gum disease. Straight teeth and healthy gums reduce plaque retention and tooth decay. A healthy mouth leads to a healthy life!
There are ways to straighten your teeth. INVISALIGN is a comfortable and easy way to straighten teeth. It’s a clear plastic that you can remove when you eat and brush/ floss your teeth. It’s easy to clean, just remove your aligners, clean your entire mouth, and put them back in. Eating is easier with INVISALIGN, all you have to do is remove it and pop those trays back in. The amount of discomfort is not as bad as the metal braces. INVISALIGN exerts gentler pressure and will not cut your cheeks and gums.
