A dazzling smile with straight teeth, not only makes you look attractive, it can boost your confidence and make you feel happier. There are numerous health benefits to having teeth straightened too.
Orthodontic treatment is no longer just for children; many adult patients are now understanding the benefits of straight teeth. Our Invisalign treatments are more discreet and work to straighten your teeth quicker than ever before.
Many adults who have lived with crooked teeth all their lives wonder if orthodontic treatment is worth it. The truth is braces not only straighten teeth, but they can also help with other issues too.
If your teeth are crowded or overlapping it can look unsightly, but it can also mean that cleaning between your teeth becomes more difficult and this can eventually cause cavities and decay. Straightening teeth can overcome this.
Some patients suffer from a bad bite. This could be an overbite, underbite, or a cross bite,etc. All can cause issues with eating and make your jaws tired, cause excessive tooth wear and they can eventually lead to tooth loss. Teeth straightening can help resolve bite issues.
If your teeth are overcrowded, you cannot clean them properly. Bacteria can accumulate in the crevices which can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. Teeth straightening with braces can space out your teeth so you can brush and floss more easily and this will improve your oral health.
Gaps in your teeth can look unattractive and affect your confidence. Teeth straightening with dental braces can gently move your teeth into position so that these gaps are closed.
If you’re unhappy with your teeth, you’re less likely to smile and this can affect your confidence as well as your relationship with others. Straight teeth can give you a brilliant smile and improve your self-esteem.
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the hinge joint in your jaw which allows for movements with chewing and speaking. Teeth that aren’t properly aligned can cause pressure on this joint which can lead to TMJ disorder and cause pain in the face, mouth, head, neck, shoulder, and even lockjaw. Dental braces can work to realign your teeth to lower the risk of developing TMJ.
