6 Ways Straighter Teeth Can Boost Your Overall Health

Did you know that having straighter teeth can improve the health of your mouth, body, and mind? Here are 6 incredible and surprising benefits of straightening your teeth, whether with Invisalign or traditional metal braces.

While there are several options to straighten your teeth, many holistic dentists recommend Invisalign. Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gradually straighten the teeth, without the use of metal brackets or wires. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisable and allow you to work, eat and socialize worry-free!

It offers patients many other benefits as well, including:

  • Greater comfort
  • Improved aesthetic appearance
  • Easier to clean your teeth
  • You can eat whatever you want
  • The treatment can be customized to your specific needs
  • Requires fewer visits to the dentist

6 Health Benefits of Having Straighter Teeth

Did you know that having straighter teeth not only improves your appearance, but it will also enhance the health of your mouth, body, and mind? When your teeth are crooked, your gums are more susceptible to collecting harmful bacteria, which can lead to health complications.


However, increased risk of bacteria is just one of many health issues associated with crooked teeth. It also comes with a host of other problems, such as weakened tooth enamel and lower self-esteem.

Here are 6 health benefits you can enjoy when you have straighter teeth:

  1. Your teeth will be easier to clean. Crowded teeth are so much harder to floss, which can lead to plaque buildup and tooth decay. Because the inability to remove all the food caught in the brackets and wires of metal braces may lead to a similar outcome, many dentists suggest Invisalign treatments for their patients. (4 Reasons to Consider an Invisalign Treatment >)
  1. You’ll have healthier gums. When teeth are too widely spaced out or crowded, they can become inflamed and red, and you could be at an increased risk for periodontal disease.
  1. You’ll lower your risk of tooth injury. Crowded or protruding teeth are more likely to be broken or damaged in the event of an accident or sporting injury.
  1. Straight, properly aligned teeth prevent abnormal tooth wear. Crowded teeth often cause one or more teeth to protrude, causing excess wear and problems with the bite. Over time, this could lead to an inefficient chewing function and could cause undue wear to your tooth enamel. 
  1. Your self-esteem and happiness will increase. An important component of your overall health is your mental health and it has been shown that having a more esthetic smile increases self confidence. This in turn leads to various health benefits, such as lower stress levels and improved self-assurance.
  1. Your overall health will improve. The tooth decay and gum disease associated with crooked teeth are caused by bacteria. Left untreated, this bacteria can cause oral infections, which are now being linked with more serious ailments such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and pneumonia.
