Clear aligners, like Invisalign and Nu Smile, have been gaining popularity as a more convenient and discreet alternative to traditional braces. The translucent plastic trays fit comfortably over your teeth, gently pushing them to their ideal places over time. They’re much less noticeable and intrusive than metal brackets, so you don’t have to feel self-conscious throughout treatment. Boosting your self-confidence isn’t the only benefit of having straighter teeth, however. Keep reading to learn about 4 health advantages of a more evenly-spaced smile!

Benefit #1: Improved Dental Hygiene

If your teeth are overcrowded, you’re more prone to issues like gum disease and tooth decay. Toxic bacteria can thrive in the places between our teeth, which are notoriously hard to clean if they’re all pressed tightly together. Realigning your teeth allows you to properly brush and floss them twice a day to effectively remove any plaque buildup.

Benefit #2: Better Digestion

Did you know that the digestion process begins in your mouth? As you chew food, you begin to break it down into pieces that your body can digest for nutrients. If your teeth aren’t lined up correctly, you end up swallowing bits that are larger than they should be, which means your stomach and intestines end up working harder. Over time, this can lead to stomach difficulties and a lack of nutrition. It becomes less of a concern once your teeth are corrected.

Benefit #3: Reduce Neck and Head Aches

Bite alignment troubles can lead to exerting undue pressure on your jaw and TMJ (temporomandibular joint). Your jaw is forced to overcompensate if your teeth don’t meet correctly when you bite down, which causes a lot of extra tension. This can result in pain in your jaw, neck, base of your skull, and even along the side of your face. Clear aligners can help you relieve tension by addressing bite problems.

Benefit #4: Decrease Damage

If your teeth are compressed and hard to clean, or if they’re misaligned, they’re more likely to break. If it’s difficult to reach them for your daily dental routine, then they’re weaker and more susceptible to harm. Not only that but if your teeth don’t line up when you chew, the natural wear and tear in the wrong places can lead to chips or cracks.

With so many advantages, it’s easy to see how correcting your grin with Nu Smile will help you look and feel better than ever!
