Dr. Daniel Stewart at Smile Savers Dentistry in Columbia MarylandYou may have thought straightening your teeth was purely a cosmetic issue, but the benefits of having properly aligned teeth extend far beyond a confident smile. It can actually significantly affect your overall dental health.

Picture your teeth as a window to the health of your body. Your teeth and gums say a lot about your overall health. If you’re taking good care of them, you’re probably taking good care of the rest of you.

With Invisalign®, having a confident smile and reducing your risk for tooth decay and gum disease go hand in hand. When teeth are properly aligned, it helps the gums fit more securely around the teeth, allowing for the strongest and healthiest defense against periodontal problems. Invisalign’s aligners gently move your teeth into the proper position.

Invisalign® aligners make daily oral hygiene easier. One of the biggest challenges of having traditional braces is successfully removing all the food that gets trapped. This often leads to plaque buildup and tooth decay. With Invisalign®, the aligners are removable, so it’s easy to brush and floss your teeth the way you normally do.

Correctly aligned teeth can also alleviate the issues that can be caused by an improper bite, speech or chewing difficulties, jaw problems, and increased wear on the tooth enamel. Invisalign® effectively addresses all of these issues, so you’ll have the confidence of a great smile and increase the likelihood of improved oral health.

If you think you are a candidate for Invisalign®, call the Smile Savers Dentistry office and schedule a consultation with me. I will be more than happy to answer all of your Invisalign® questions!

Regards, Dr. Daniel Stewart
