It may be surprising to know that the benefits of straight teeth are more then just having a beautiful smile. By properly aligning your teeth, you can significantly improve your oral health. Gingivitis (swollen, red, bleeding gums) can often be the result of crowded or mal-aligned teeth. When teeth are properly aligned, they are much easier to keep clean resulting in healthy firm fitting gums around the teeth. Orthodontics (including invisalign) effectively address alignment issues giving you the confidence of not only a beautiful smile, but a healthy smile!
