February’s big for love and hearts, and not just because of Valentine’s Day—it’s also American Heart Month. Learn how keeping your mouth healthy and your heart happy and getting your teeth straight with Invisalign can make a big difference.
Why Your Mouth Matters to Your Heart
Not everyone knows this, but the health of your mouth is super connected to the health of your heart. Studies have found that gum disease can up your chances of heart disease and other heart troubles. That’s because the bad bacteria from your gums can get into your blood and cause inflammation in your arteries, which is bad news for your heart.
How Invisalign Helps Your Heart
You might be wondering what Invisalign has to do with all this heart stuff. Well, it’s all about how fixing your teeth can make your mouth healthier:
Since you can take Invisalign out, you can brush and floss like a pro. This cuts down on gum disease and cavities, which is great for your mouth and heart.
No More Crooked Teeth
Invisalign straightens your teeth, which means no more tight spots for bad bacteria to hide and mess with your gums.
Looking good with straight teeth makes you feel good, too. When you’re feeling confident, you’re more likely to take care of your teeth and health, keeping both your smile and heart in top shape.
