Braces are more than just to straighten teeth

When you hear the word braces, you probably think irregular/uneven teeth get straightened and it is true. But orthodontic treatment with braces also has various benefits that are often overlooked.

Health Benefits of Straight teeth

  • Misaligned teeth cannot be cleaned properly because brushing and flossing cannot reach all the surfaces in a better way, some areas cannot be maintained with daily hygiene habits.
  • Uneven teeth are more prone to excess buildup of calculus deposits and tartar resulting in gum disease which weakens the teeth, damage the tooth roots and jaw possibly even tooth loss in advanced stages of the disease.
  • Irregular teeth cause excessive stress or abnormal pressure on the chewing muscles, causing facial pain. Sometimes, it causes Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMD.) Over time, the magnitude of the disorders grows and the problems become more complicated.
  • Misaligned teeth can cause jaw erosion by making way for the potential disease-causing bacteria to eat away at the bones. Braces help in the alignment of teeth and prevent jawbone erosion.
  • When the teeth are not properly aligned such as overbite, underbite or crossbite can cause excessive wear on the surface gums, and jaw muscles, resulting in cracked teeth, jaw strain and in some cases, it even causes tooth loss.
  • It is difficult to chew food into tiny pieces resulting in bit longer time for digestion. Straighten teeth can help in easily and fully digestion.
  • Speech becomes a problem or makes whistling sounds with misaligned or overcrowded teeth. Braces will help you achieve a comfortable speaking position.

Braces are the long term investment in creating the flawless beautiful smiles and health of your teeth gums and jaw joints.
