3 Improvements Gained From Straightening Your Teeth

Thanks to modern orthodontic technology and treatment methods, you may be pleasantly surprised by your experience with orthodontic treatment. You can have your adjustments made with Invisalign, which will make it highly unlikely people will even notice you are wearing an appliance. You can also choose tooth-colored brackets, which offer less conspicuous treatment, but still provide results on par with traditional metal brackets. By straightening your smile, you can see a big change to how you look. Of course, you also have the benefit of making some important oral health improvements.

1. You Lower Your Risk For Tooth Decay And Gum Disease

If your smile is negatively affected by teeth that overlap in uncommon ways, you are dealing with more than just a cosmetic problem. Those overlaps can keep certain portions of teeth from being as accessible when you brush and floss. That can make it difficult to clean your teeth as well as you should, meaning you are more likely to have problems with cavities and gum disease.

2. You Are Less Likely To Develop TMJ Issues

A corrected bite means a corrected bite alignment, and that can mean less strain on your jaw joints. Patients who leave their bite misaligned may develop TMJ problems. This condition causes pain in your face, neck, and head, and can make your jaw movements more difficult.

3. You Can Enjoy A More Attractive Smile

While your orthodontist certainly wants you to enjoy your healthiest smile, there is an obvious benefit to your appearance when you straighten your teeth. By going through with orthodontic care, you can come away with more confidence in how you look.
