Orthodontic Treatment – Achieving More Than Just A Great Smile
Posted on 6th May 2021 at 16:42
Today, the options for straightening your smile and correcting other orthodontic issues like crowded and widely spaced teeth are better than ever. Thanks to treatments like Invisalign clear aligners and aesthetic and comfortable fixed brace designs, patients can undergo less invasive treatment than in the past. Whilst teeth straightening will inevitably improve the aesthetics of your smile, did you know there are a whole host of other benefits that often go overlooked? Let’s take a look at some of these below.
A Dose of Confidence
Braces move your teeth into a more aesthetically pleasing position, and this is usually the benefit that patients most associate with treatment. However, with newly-aligned teeth comes new-found confidence and a desire to smile more around friends, family and colleagues. Patients will also find any speech impediments they previously had, cease to exist post-treatment, which can also improve self-esteem and general wellbeing.
Better Oral Hygiene
Removing plaque from your teeth through daily brushing and flossing is essential if you want to keep problems like decay and gum disease at bay. Unfortunately, overlapping, crooked and misaligned teeth can stop you from reaching your tooth surfaces to clean them properly and necessitate more effort to keep your mouth healthy. The effects of orthodontic treatment will leave you with teeth that are far easier to clean and reduce your risk of developing oral health complications.
Easier to Enjoy the Foods You Love
A poor bite (also called malocclusion) can affect how you break down your food, force you to eat on just one side of your mouth, and can even make some foods a total no-go. Moreover, when you chew correctly, food is broken down into many small food particles, producing saliva which washes away bacteria and cleanses your mouth. As a bad bite makes it tougher to do this, saliva stimulation is also inhibited, leaving you more prone to decay.
