Orthodontic treatment with clear aligners is perfect for busy adults or anyone who want a straighter smile without metal braces. If you want to straighten crooked teeth, it’s likely because you want to improve your appearance.
You’ll be happy to know that clear aligners like ClearCorrect or Invisalign in Mount Pleasant, SC help you achieve your goals of a more attractive smile. But you may be surprised to learn about the oral health benefits of straightening crooked teeth.
Improves Your Oral Hygiene
If you want to maintain a healthy smile, you need to remove food particles and bacteria from your teeth with conscientious brushing and flossing. But if your teeth are crowded together or overlap each other, getting your toothbrush and floss between them can be difficult or impossible.
Perfectly aligned teeth, however, are a breeze to keep clean, which helps you avoid dental problems like cavities and gum disease.
Helps Stop a Teeth Grinding Habit
A common reason for chronic teeth grinding is an unbalanced dental bite that develops because your crooked teeth don't evenly meet when you bite down. Your dentist may recommend a night guard to protect your teeth while you sleep.
But the best solution for you may be orthodontic treatment with clear aligners that straightens your teeth and corrects your bite.
Protects Existing Dental Work
Teeth grinding puts excessive force on your teeth that they were never meant to absorb. This stress on your dental work leads to broken, fractured fillings damage to other restorations like dental crowns.
Straightening your teeth protects your dental work and helps extend its lifespan.
