At Mission Hills Dental, our team is committed to helping you attain your dream smile. Through numerous treatment options, including Invisalign. An innovation in orthodontic care, Invisalign offers a discreet and comfortable alternative to traditional braces. However, there’s one habit that can significantly compromise the effectiveness of this treatment, which is smoking.

An Unhealthy Combination

Smoking and Invisalign are not a good combination for several reasons. Smoking stains the aligners, making them more visible and defeating the purpose of their discreet nature. Additionally, smoking can increase the risk of gum disease, tooth decay, and bad breath, which can hinder the progress of your Invisalign treatment.

Healing Process and Treatment Time

Furthermore, smoking can interfere with the aligner’s ability to move your teeth properly. The nicotine and other chemicals in cigarettes restrict blood flow to the gums, slowing down the healing process and potentially prolonging treatment time. Moreover, smoking can weaken bone density, which is crucial for the success of dental realignment.

Facilitating Optimal Results

If you are in the process of Invisalign treatment, quitting smoking is essential for optimal results. Not only will it improve your overall oral health, but it will also ensure that your treatment progresses smoothly and efficiently. We service the areas of Granada Hills, Sylmar, San Fernando, and beyond help patients maintain their dental well-being for the long-term.
