Invisalign and the Benefits of Straight Teeth
Did you know that 75% of North American adults are affected by malocclusion or crooked teeth?
When left untreated, misaligned teeth can lead to issues while having straight teeth can help to improve your oral health.

The Problem With Crooked Teeth
Invisalign corrects and straightens crooked or maloccluded teeth. And the purpose goes beyond the clear aesthetic improvements.
The main problem with misaligned teeth is that they don’t create a neat bite. The repetitive stress of chewing with crooked teeth can expose teeth to excessive amounts of wear. Over time, this can lead to chips and notches along the gumline. Crooked teeth can also become flattened or worn down, with chips and fractures at the tooth’s edge.
Types of Misalignment
- Deep Bite
- Open Bite
- Cross Bite
- Edge to Edge Bite
- Excessive Overjet
Oral Health Issues Caused by Crooked Teeth
Overtime, the abnormal strain on the teeth and jaw created by crooked teeth can lead to the following oral health problems:
- Loose teeth
- Tooth loss
- Gum recession
- Poor bone support at tooth roots
- Jaw pain
- Periodontal disease
Invisalign Protects Teeth by Fixing Misalignment
Invisalign corrects crooked teeth, allowing them to fit together optimally. When teeth come together in a straight bite, they will last longer, avoiding the wear caused by improper bites. This will also go a long way in preventing the need for costly future dental procedures.
Sure, braces accomplish the exact same thing. However, there are very clear differences between Invisalign and braces. Click the link below to learn more!
