At Prime Family Dental Care in Laveen, Arizona, Dr. Jordan Karren and Dr. Timothy Yu offers Invisalign® for our patients who want smile correction. By using a system of clear aligners worn incrementally, Invisalign is a healthy alternative to wearing traditional metal braces.
Unlike Invisalign, metal brackets and wires can cause mouth sores and injuries by irritating sensitive tissues in the mouth, and contribute to cavities because teeth are harder to clean–making it easier for harmful plaque to accumulate.
With Invisalign, you remove the aligners whenever you eat, which also allows you to thoroughly clean your teeth afterwards. This improved oral hygiene serves to protect your pearly whites, unlike wearing metal braces.
When teeth are aligned correctly, the gums will fit more completely around the teeth, helping to prevent periodontal disease because the roots of the tooth are protected. What happens if you don’t clean your teeth well daily (which can happen with metal braces)? You are vulnerable to the following oral health problems: tooth decay, gum disease, halitosis (bad breath), sores in the mouth, and swollen or bleeding gums.
With oral infections, your mouth doesn’t just have problems, but your health can pay the price as well. According to the American Dental Association, oral infections can lead to diabetes, stroke, pneumonia, and heart disease. With Invisalign, not only can you straighten your smile, but it won’t come as a cost to your teeth, gums or overall health.
