For as long as you can remember, you’ve been ashamed of your Smile. This insecurity has held you back from pursuing opportunities and feeling confident in yourself. It has also made you hesitant to smile in situations where you would naturally feel compelled to. That’s why you’ve decided to choose Invisalign clear aligners. You know it’s the best route to get the smile you desire, but your dentist in Orlando says the benefits extend beyond just aesthetics. Read on to learn more about them.


Invisalign clear aligners are clear, BPA-free plastics trays that are custom designed to adjust your teeth gradually until you achieve your desired smile. Most people prefer them to traditional braces because they are discreet and removable, making for a more enjoyable process.


Beyond just the cosmetic benefits of straight teeth, Invisalign aligners of Orlando help to improve functionality, which plays a major role in your oral health. This is because the better your teeth function, the better you can maintain their care. Here are some of the areas specifically affected by having straight teeth:

  • Oral Hygiene – Straight teeth are easier to clean because they aren’t crowded or misaligned, and don’t block the entry to your gum line and the surface of your crowns.
  • Prevents Oral Health Issues – An indirect benefit of having straight teeth, also, is that it helps to prevent oral health issues like gum disease. This is part of the positive domino effect. Once you have straight teeth, you can clean better. And properly cleaned teeth and gums help to prevent oral health issues.
  • Prevents Abnormal Tooth Wear – Another benefit is that properly aligned teeth prevent the abnormal wear that can occur when there is an over or underbite.
  • Fewer Headaches – Misaligned teeth can cause headaches because it alters your jaw structure and causes pressure to be applied in unnatural ways. With properly aligned teeth, you don’t have to worry about that problem anymore.
  • Better Digestion of Food – The better your teeth are aligned, the better they will be able to chew food and encourage proper digestion.

Finally, studies show that when you have straight teeth and a perfect smile, you feel better about yourself and perform tasks with a sense of urgency and drive to do them well. Furthermore, 58% of people polled say that those fortunate enough to have perfect smiles are more likely to be successful than those lacking. When it comes to your smile, you don’t have to choose aesthetics or function because they both can and should co-exist in harmony.
