Think it’s all cosmetic? Top 5 health benefits of Invisalign from Dental Rooms

When it comes to straightening your teeth as an adult, it is easy to assume that the causes for seeking the treatment are purely cosmetic.


Of course, it is a factor but in a similar vein to traditional braces, invisible options can also help to correct a myriad of underlying health issues. Even if you have a mild to moderate misalignment, you may be surprised at the difference wearing an adult orthodontic appliance can make to your health in the long-term.

At Dental Rooms, our team has helped thousands of patients gain straighter smiles using braces like Invisalign in Wimbledon. Invisible (as the name suggests), removable and easy to maintain, this invisible brace also offers its users far more than a slightly straighter smile.

But what are some of the health benefits of wearing Invisalign in Wimbledon? Read on to find out!

Better hygiene

It goes without saying that straighter teeth are easier to clean.

When your teeth are spaced or misaligned, plaque and bacteria can accumulate in those hard to reach spaces which can lead to cavities and decay.

By choosing Invisalign in Wimbledon, these orthodontic issues can be quickly resolved, resulting in easier to clean teeth and better overall oral hygiene.

Better diet

It happens to the best of us; we will be eating something like an apple or a piece of pasta, only to have it become stuck between your teeth.

If your teeth are slightly crooked or misaligned, these occurrences may be more frequent, prompting you to avoid certain foods altogether. By using an invisible brace, the chances of food becoming trapped between your teeth are greatly reduced, allowing you to eat a wider range of foods, improving your overall diet.

Better sleep

If your teeth are severely misaligned, chances are when you close your mouth your upper and lower jaw do not sit together properly.

While this may seem fairly benign, it can have a significant impact on the quality of your sleep, as your jaws may grind together during those 40 all-important winks. As invisible braces will need to be worn during the night for you to benefit the most from them, this will not only prevent the grinding from occurring but in the long-term, it will allow your jaws to sit together correctly. Sleep well!

Better digestion

Teeth which do not sit well together often struggle to grind food correctly, leading to digestive issues.

In short, larger pieces of food reach the stomach and require more acid to break down, leading to conditions like acid reflux and indigestion. Having an invisible brace enables your teeth to grind food correctly and effectively, reducing gastrointestinal discomfort.

Say goodbye to headaches and migraines!

As established earlier, misaligned teeth can exacerbate issues such as grinding and bruxism. And, after a night of grinding, it is likely that your facial and neck muscles will be sore; a precursor to headaches.

Once you begin using invisible braces, your grinding will reduce and so will your headaches and migraines. Fantastic!
