How Orthodontics Changes Your Smile
Have you ever wondered what orthodontics could do for your smile? Orthodontic treatment, which can include braces, Invisalign and other options, can completely transform the look, feel and function of your smile. It can even change the way you feel about yourself.
1. Orthodontic treatment can balance your bite.
An imbalanced bite can cause many dental problems, including TMJ disorders and bruxism. Bringing your upper and lower jaws into proper alignment can balance your bite so that the bite forces are properly distributed.
2. Orthodontic treatment can make more room for crowded teeth.
Crowded teeth can be hard to clean, and you may find that you have more plaque and tartar buildup in hard-to-reach areas. This can lead to gum disease, tooth decay and other future dental problems. Straightening and improving the spacing between your teeth can make it easier for you to clean your teeth.
3. Orthodontic treatment can close gaps.
Gapped teeth can catch debris, which may leave you vulnerable to tooth decay and gum irritation. Closing those gaps can give you a more attractive smile, as well as a healthier smile.
4. Orthodontic treatment can reduce your risk of dental problems.
Properly spaced teeth and a balanced bite are less likely to suffer long-term dental problems and more likely to stay healthy. Many people find themselves caring for their smile a lot more frequently to keep the long-lasting results.
5. Orthodontic treatment can give you a more attractive smile.
Crooked, badly spaced or poorly aligned teeth can be unattractive, especially with today’s society focusing on beauty. Braces or Invisalign can straighten your teeth for a smile you cannot wait to share.
