Invisalign Straightens Teeth, But What Else Can It Do? [BLOG]

Invisalign San Antonio, TX | Cosmetic Dental Associates

It’s pretty simple to match up the right cosmetic dentistry treatment with the common smile flaw of crooked teeth.

You find the orthodontic solution that suits you best.

Easy, right?

But what our team at Cosmetic Dental Associates wants you to know is that your choice for orthodontic treatment will be based upon factors that go beyond the position of your teeth.

A popular choice in our San Antonio, TX dental office is Invisalign for its effectiveness in correcting crooked or gapped teeth, as well as its surprising other advantages we’re focusing on today!

Other Ways Invisalign Helps Your Smile

It’s no secret that an attractive smile demands straight teeth and that Invisalign is a modern way to achieve that.

What you may not be familiar with are the other ways Invisalign can help your smile.

Here are three of them!

*Invisalign Corrects Overcrowding*

Keeping your teeth clean every single day is challenging enough without having to deal with overcrowded teeth.

Getting between those places where teeth overlap makes oral hygiene more of a hassle, and consequently, something that could make you less diligent about your daily dental care.

What can happen if overcrowded teeth aren’t thoroughly cleared of food particles is that your risk for cavities and gum disease increases, which poses a threat to your smile and your health.

Fortunately, that’s one of the issues Invisalign will address. It brings inappropriately spaced teeth together, but it also moves your teeth away from each other if they’re overlapping.

*Invisalign Closes The Gaps Between Teeth*

A gap between your two front teeth isn’t necessarily a cosmetic smile flaw.

In fact, it can sometimes serve as a rather uniquely attractive characteristic in a person’s smile.

However, not everyone feels that way about the gaps between their teeth, and it’s often the reason some seek cosmetic dentistry to correct it.

Invisalign is an effective solution because by shifting your teeth into the right position, it closes those gaps and brings your teeth together properly.

This can improve your oral health as well as enhance the appearance of your smile.

That’s due to the reduction of unnecessary openness and vulnerability exposed gums have to food and drink debris and bacterial infections that can cause problems to your oral and overall health.

*Invisalign Improves Your Bite*

When you bite down, your upper and lower teeth should fit together well.

If they don’t, it’s a sign that something isn’t right with your bite alignment.

There shouldn’t be wide open spaces when your teeth come down to meet each other because it’s going to inevitably affect your ability to eat and speak comfortably and properly.

Misalignment with your jaw and bite can aggravate TMJ problems that result in pain, muscle tension, headaches, and other chronic discomfort.

It’s also affects functionality, not only with your speech, but with tearing and chewing your food.

Invisalign can help correct minor issues with overbites and underbites so that your arches fit together as they should.

This is something people often don’t associate with clear aligner therapy, but fixing bite alignment is a great way to protecting your oral health by helping you avoid unnecessary damage and wearing down of your teeth.

Choose The Right Invisalign Specialist

Dr. Moore is one of the most popular dentists for San Antonio residents, visitors, and tourists alike, especially when it comes to Invisalign and other cosmetic dentistry treatment options.

Your Invisalign journey should begin in the hands of the right specialist, and you’re hard pressed to find one better than Dr. Moore at Cosmetic Dental Associates in San Antonio, TX!
