There is a direct link between oral health and systemic health. This makes one of the largest Invisalign® health benefits the ability to properly clean your teeth. Because they can be removed, Invisalign® aligners will not interfere with proper brushing or flossing. Removed also while eating, no food particles will get lodged into your aligners, helping prevent tooth decay and gum disease which has been linked to systemic problems including a heart attack and stroke.
There are distinct differences between Invisalign® and traditional braces. There are even distinct differences between Invisalign® and “clear braces.” The primary difference is that Invisalign® uses a series of clear plastic aligner trays to straighten your teeth. Both traditional and clear braces use brackets attached to the teeth and connected by wires.
