Invisalign – The CLEAR Choice
Whether you’re 4, 40, or 400, it’s always the right time to get a healthier smile with Invisalign! Good dental hygiene habits are essential to maintaining good oral health, but sometimes there is more you can do! Invisalign not only improves the LOOK of your smile, but also improve the HEALTH of your smile! When your teeth are misaligned, you aren’t able to brush and floss to your full potential. You could also be experiencing TMJ or other damage as a result of the alignment of your bite.
When you brush and floss, you aim to remove the tartar and plaque that builds up on your teeth and cause decay. This is why RDH Lisa Thurm stresses the importance of flossing twice a day! If your teeth are not straight, it makes accessing those hard to reach areas even harder. Invisalign, clear braces, can quickly and easily straighten teeth so you can reach your full health potential.
