Benefits of Straight Teeth

Benefits-straight-teeth

 

Many people believe that straight teeth are just for cosmetic purposes. However, there are many health benefits that accompany a beautiful smile. Read on for more information on how a straighter smile can help you be a healthier person!

1. Easy Maintenance

Simply put straight teeth are easier to clean. Crooked and crowded teeth make it more difficult to brush away and debris. It is also more likely for bacteria to grow in the pockets, causing possible tooth decay if not cleaned properly.

2. Avoiding Inflammation and Infection

When teeth are not aligned, they can irritate the gums and cause inflammation. Inflamed gums can be a characteristic of periodontal disease, which can be very serious. We can help prevent this by straightening your teeth.

3. The Mouth-Body Connection

In addition to the damage caused to gums, periodontal disease is also linked to other diseases in the body including heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. Periodontal disease occurs when bacteria builds up and begins to wear away your gums. Straight teeth will reduce the risk of these disease’s and health issues.

4. Straight Teeth are Safe Teeth

Straight teeth are safer because they are less likely to get chipped or damaged. When everything is correctly lined up, there is less surfaces that are sticking out and exposed to potential harm.

A healthy set of teeth leads to more confidence on top of all the health benefits. Beautifully aligned smiles are associated with increased self-confidence and lowered stress. When stress is lowered, your body is able to function better as a whole. Start reaping the benefits of a healthy, straight smile! Schedule an appointment by calling us today! We look forward to helping you get started.
