Studies have shown that regular visits to the dentist reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, lung disease, pregnancy complication, and concerns related to diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease.
Bacteria forms a film underneath the gums particularly where teeth are misaligned. Gum pockets form, trapping bacteria and debris. The trapped bacteria inflames the gum tissues and kills gum tissue cells. The bacteria can then invade the connective tissue and blood vessels. As a reaction to the bacteria, your immune system creates white blood cells and proteins to fight the inflammation. The combination of bacteria, toxins, white blood cells, and acute phase proteins damages the cells that line your coronary arteries, resulting in plaque and leading to hardening of the arteries.
Many orthodontic insurance plans cover Invisalign treatment up to 50%. Ask how insurance, flex spending accounts, and payment plans can help you fit Invisalign treatment into your budget.
You can have fewer, shorter office visits and fewer emergency visits. Invisalign treatment can give you back family time, because Invisalign clear aligners don’t need to be manually adjusted by an orthodontist. You’ll never have an emergency visit due to broken wires or brackets.
You can keep living life without interruption during Invisalign treatment. The aligners are virtually invisible and easily removable, so you can still enjoy pictures, social events, and all the foods you love. You can continue to brush and floss as usual for better oral health-and have less cavity-causing plaque than patients with braces.
