If you have put up with crooked teeth for years, you might have toyed with the idea of orthodontics. The good news is it’s never too late to reap the benefits of a straighter smile and today’s modern braces aren’t just for teenagers. So what are some of the top reasons for wearing braces?
This is why most people want to straighten their teeth as an attractive smile can be a valuable asset. It is a great reason, but possibly not the most important.
Improved Dental Health
If your teeth are significantly overlapping or crooked, you’ll find they are much easier to keep clean once straightened. Your toothbrush will be able to reach a greater surface area and flossing can become a cinch. Having a straighter smile may help reduce your risk of gum disease and tooth decay so it really could be an excellent investment in your dental health.
Teeth Will Wear More Evenly
Teeth that are significantly out of alignment tend to bite together unevenly, placing more force on some teeth than on others. This can lead to some teeth wearing down more quickly than others or even chipping or cracking under the additional forces and it can place increased pressure on your jaw joints. Braces can correct this, protecting your jaw joints from increased wear and tear while ensuring your teeth bite together correctly.
Integrated Dental Care can provide a wide range of braces to suit your needs and lifestyle. After an initial consultation, we can help you choose the best appliance to give a beautifully straight smile.
