Why Straighten Your Teeth

Straightening your teeth can have a dramatic effect on your bite, chewing function and speaking ability. A straight smile contributes to healthy teeth and gums, as well as alleviating jaw problems. Another major benefit of orthodontics is the beautiful smile you will have after treatment! A straight smile is a wonderful asset. If you are self-conscious about you teeth, you may not smile or laugh as often. Orthodontic treatment can increase self-esteem, confidence and facial appearance. It may also benefit a patient’s social and professional life. You may also be surprised to learn that straight teeth are less prone to decay, gum disease and injury. When teeth are well aligned they are easier to clean, allowing easier plaque removal. As for injuries to teeth, protruding upper teeth are more likely to be broken in an accident. When they are realigned into the correct position, the risk of fracture is decreased significantly. Orthodontic problems may worsen over time if left untreated. Orthodontic problems can cause; abnormal wear on tooth surfaces, misalignment of jaw joints, excessive stress on gums and supporting bone structure as well as numerous other conditions within the body, like chronic headaches or pain in the face and neck. Treatment by an Orthodontist to correct problems within the mouth early on can actually be more cost effective than restorative dental care required for treating problems which develop later on.
