Using teeth-straightening treatments like Invisalign does much more than improve the aesthetics of your smile. About 74% of American adults have crooked teeth, which, if left untreated, could lead to serious oral issues like periodontal disease.Crooked teeth, crowding, and other problems can place unnatural stress on your teeth, which causes chips, notches, and even pain in the jaw. Over time, these problems can cause headaches, gum recession, and periodontal disease that make it even more difficult to care for your teeth and gums. Invisalign can gradually move the teeth back into place to decrease your risk for these issues to leave you with a beautiful smile.Check out this video to learn more about Invisalign and what it can do.
