5 Reasons to Straighten Teeth With Invisalign
Nowadays Invisalign® has become one of the most popular methods for teeth straightening, and there are many benefits to choosing it over other options such as traditional braces. When considering this treatment or teeth straightening in general, it is helpful to know how it can benefit your smile, oral health and overall well-being.
Reasons to consider Invisalign® treatment
Invisalign® treatment is about more than just correcting misalignments in the mouth; there are other benefits to straightening teeth. The following are five of the more notable reasons to consider following through with this treatment to fix alignment issues of the teeth and jaw.
1. A more attractive smile
Invisalign® is effective in correcting minor to moderate malocclusions, and it is ideal for a wide range of complications, including crooked teeth, crowded teeth, gaps between teeth and more. Having a straighter smile often helps in many areas of life. Many patients find they feel more attractive, which can help when pursuing personal relationships.
2. Improved oral health
The cosmetic benefits are perhaps the main reasons people seek teeth straightening through Invisalign®, but there are oral health benefits as well. Having a straighter smile makes it easier to brush all sides of the teeth, whereas crooked and overcrowded teeth are often more prone to cavities. Also, many who enjoy the results of Invisalign® treatment are more motivated to keep their smile looking great and their teeth healthy and stain-free.
3. Increased confidence
Confidence is powerful, and it often helps people achieve their goals in life as well as in social interactions. No one should have to feel insecure due to misaligned teeth, and fortunately, Invisalign® helps many who may feel embarrassed by their smile achieve a higher level of confidence while around others.
4. A professional appearance
In an ideal world, the way we are perceived professionally would not be influenced by our physical appearance. Unfortunately, however, that is not the case, and whether subconsciously or consciously, employers often take appearance into account. A straighter smile often appears more professional and shows confidence, which helps in a work setting such as a job interview or meeting with a prospective business client.
5. Savings of time and money
Some people may put off Invisalign® treatment thinking it is too expensive, but many patients often save money in the long-term. Those who have straighter teeth often have fewer cavities, oral infections and other oral health concerns than those who have crooked or overcrowded teeth. Subsequently, Invisalign® often decreases the risk of expensive oral health dental procedures in the long term, saving the patient money and time.
