Getting your teeth straightened isn’t simply about getting some braces fitted so you can have a more beautiful smile. Granted a perfectly-aligned set of teeth can deliver a winning shot of self-esteem, but there’s more on offer. Some other good reasons to straighten your teeth
If you have crooked teeth there are:
- It is easier to keep your teeth and gums clean
- You’ll have less wear and tear on your teeth from clenching and grinding
- You’ve got less chance of damaging your gums
- There’s less stress on the jaw joint from bad biting patterns
While there is no guarantee that teeth straightening will conclusively fix your dental problems, it can make a significant difference to problems caused by ‘malocclusion’, more commonly referred to as misaligned teeth.
It’s easy to look in the mirror at less-than-perfect teeth and conclude you could benefit from some teeth straightening. But with many conditions treatable by non-orthodontic means, you’re best checking with your dentist who can perform a full diagnostic assessment and determine if you’ll benefit from teeth straightening.
It’s quite possible your dentist will be trained to provide these services, but they may also decide you could benefit from a referral to a specialist orthodontist. If you undergo treatment by an orthodontist, you’ll also need to keep seeing your dentist for regular check-ups.
Braces are the first thing many people think of when they consider getting their teeth straightened. But braces have come a long way with a choice of classic metal or clear styles, or clear removable aligners.
