Health Benefits of Invisalign
Not only does Invisalign offer advantages for straightening your teeth, it also offers a significant amount of oral health benefits. Studies have shown that straightening your teeth can actually benefit your overall health as well. Did you know that overcrowded, overlapping, or gapped teeth can lead to swollen gums, redness and other types of periodontal disease or tooth decay? Invisalign does more than create a confident, beautiful smile; it works to correct more serious issues and promote a healthy lifestyle. Dr. Jeffrey Roeder is a Premier Invisalign Provider, which means he helps connect many patients with the benefits of treatment.
Strong and Healthy Gums
The gums around your teeth can fit tighter when they are straight. This can lead to better periodontal health because there is less room for colonies of bacteria to form and grow. When teeth are overcrowded, gums can become swollen and red, which can lead to gum disease, infections or ultimately tooth loss. Dr. Roeder and the team will assess both your teeth and your gums when recommending a treatment plan with Invisalign.

Freestyle Teeth Cleaning
Another benefit of Invisalign is the ability to brush and floss your teeth with no interference from wires, brackets, or bands. No special tools or cleaning implements are needed for your routine care. Your dentist will have an easier time with regular cleanings without maneuvering around orthodontic components. With Invisalign orthodontic treatment, you can pop out your clear aligners at any time and brush and floss your teeth like normal. Having consistent oral hygiene will help prevent tooth decay, plaque buildup and cavities.
Strong Tooth Structure
When teeth in are aligned properly, changes can be seen and felt in the way you bite, chew, swallow and talk. Invisalign’s flexibility allows for simple teeth straightening while simultaneously addressing any structural issues which may impede function or aesthetics. Studies have shown that proper teeth, jaw and bite alignment can also alleviate headaches and muscle tension caused by stress on the jaw or mouth.
