San Francisco Invisalign Dentist Explains How Invisalign Promotes Good Oral Hygiene

Most dental patients gravitate towards Invisalign treatment because they want to improve the aesthetics of their smiles. Invisalign undoubtedly delivers exceptionally attractive results, but did you know that Invisalign also provides some oral hygiene benefits?

Our San Francisco Invisalign dentist is here to tell you how Invisalign affects the health and cleanliness of your smile! Keep reading to learn more…

First of all, Invisalign can actually help you maintain a clean smile throughout the treatment process. People who have had metal braces know how difficult it can be to keep teeth and gum tissues clean with metal brackets and wires stuck to the teeth. Metal braces can actually make the patient susceptible to suffering from dental cavities and gum disease.

Invisalign aligners are completely removable. So you will actually take them out of your mouth when you are ready to clean your smile. This means that you can brush, floss, and use mouthwash just as you do right now. As you’d imagine, this makes it much easier for you to clean your smile, compared to metal braces.

Invisalign treatment can also help you maintain a clean smile post-treatment. It is notoriously difficult to clean between crooked and crowded teeth. Once your teeth are better aligned, thanks to Invisalign, you’ll be able to more effectively minimize plaque accumulation by brushing and flossing.

Dr. Walley has seen time and time again how Invisalign improves patients’ dental aesthetics and oral hygiene routines.
