Teeth Straightening

Is Teeth Straightening Really Worth The Money?

Published on 06/10/2015

Many adults believed they had missed the chance to have straight teeth and a smile to be proud of when they were children. However, over the past few years, there has been a large increase in the availability of teeth straightening procedures to help improve the appearance of crooked or overcrowded teeth no matter what your age is.

There are a number of benefits to straightening your teeth and these include:

Improved Confidence and Self Esteem

The main reason many people will look to straighten their teeth is to help improve the appearance of their smile. With some people so embarrassed at what people may think of the

state of their smile that they feel they need to cover their mouth when they talk or smile, straightening your teeth can help to improve confidence and self-esteem, allowing you to achieve things you never thought were possible.

Healthy Gums

If your teeth are overcrowded or crooked it can be very difficult to effectively clean in and around them. If food debris is left trapped between teeth it can lead to gum disease and tooth decay. By straightening teeth the gums will fit more securely around teeth and it will be much easier to perform an effective oral hygiene routine removing any plaque or calculus present. In the long term, this can help reduce the risk of tooth loss.

Improved bite

If your teeth are misaligned this can lead to problems speaking, chewing and can cause your teeth to wear and crack more quickly. This may also put an increased strain on your jaw muscles which in the long term can lead to headaches and other health conditions. By straightening teeth and properly aligning the bite, it is possible to reduce discomfort and wear caused to your mouth and jaw.

Overall health

Your teeth and gums can provide a clear picture of your overall health. If you look after your teeth and gums you are also likely to look after the rest of your body. Bacteria present in your mouth which cause tooth decay and gum disease can if left untreated cause bad breath and even tooth loss. Studies have shown that oral infections can also lead to more serious health conditions such as heart disease, stroke, pneumonia and diabetes. By straightening your teeth you will have a better chance of reducing oral infections and other potential health problems.
