In our last post, we talked about some of the most convenient benefits of straightening your smile with Invisalign, the first being that Invisalign is clear and the second being that Invisalign is removable. But the second benefit isn’t just about convenience; it also benefits your oral health.
With traditional braces, food can become trapped around the brackets and wires that move teeth into their ideal alignment. If these bits of food aren’t cleaned away through brushing and flossing, they can make patients more vulnerable to common oral health conditions, like tooth decay and gum disease. What’s more, some foods can actually damage braces, requiring extra office visits.
With Invisalign, our Juno Beach patients don’t have to worry about either of these. Because Invisalign uses removable aligners, you can enjoy the same foods you always have. You don’t have to worry about hurting your braces, because you take them out for meals. Plus, because you’ll also take your aligners out for brushing and flossing, you can clean your smile as thoroughly as you would without braces.
Both of these benefits translate into a potentially healthier treatment time. Because you’re not limited in what you can eat, you can enjoy a balanced, nutritious diet that includes healthy but hard-to-eat foods. You can also take better care of your smile with regular at-home care and professional cleanings.
