For decades, braces have been primarily regarded as serving a cosmetic purpose. But having properly aligned teeth goes way beyond pearly whites and a confident smile. The American Dental Association confirms that straight teeth have a positive impact on a person’s entire dental health. Keep reading to learn the top benefits of straight teeth.
- Healthier teeth and gums – It could be that you already maintain good dental hygiene habits, brushing and flossing your teeth on a regular basis. However, that doesn’t always prevent swollen, red gums as a result of teeth being crowded or too widely spaced. Keep in mind that these are also signs of periodontal (gum) disease. Teeth that are properly aligned help the gums fit more securely around the teeth, allowing for optimal defense against gum disease.
- Fewer orthodontic issues – There are a number of issues that can be caused by an improper bite, speech or chewing difficulties, jaw problems, as well as increased wear on the tooth enamel. It’s important to know that correctly aligned teeth can alleviate all of these.
- Improved overall health – Our Sandy cosmetic dentist routinely reminds patients to think of their teeth as a window to their overall health. Believe it or not, your teeth and gums play a major role in heart health, for example. Remember that tooth decay and gum disease are caused by bacteria. Left untreated, that bacteria can cause tender or bleeding gums, mouth sores, bad breath, and even tooth loss in some cases. ADA studies have shown that oral infections may lead to heart disease, stroke, pneumonia, and diabetes. That’s why it’s so important to keep six-month dental cleaning appointments. The last thing you want is for something minor to snowball into a serious ailment.
