Did you know that there are benefits beyond the cosmetic for having straight teeth? That’s right! You can have healthier gums and easier dental cleanings too!
Properly positioned teeth are easier to brush and floss than teeth that are crowded, crooked or spaced too far apart. Properly aligned teeth can help gums ‘fit’ tighter around them, which may lead to better periodontal health1. With maintenance of good oral hygiene, the chances of having plaque retention, tooth decay and periodontal disease can be reduced.
Foster Dental Care recognizes straighter teeth are healthier teeth, so if your teeth are misaligned, Invisalign is considered to straighten your teeth to help prevent periodontal disease – all without the hassle of brackets and wires.
