Health Benefits of Straight Teeth

Health Benefits of Straight Teeth

As your trusted orthodontist, we understand the benefits of having straight teeth. That’s why we at City Orthodontics strive to be on the cutting-edge of orthodontic treatment for all those in and around Toronto, ON. Whether you decide to use clear braces, Invisalign, or another orthodontic treatment, our procedures will allow you to gain all the benefits of having a perfect smile. Here are a few reasons why it’s more beneficial to have straight teeth.

It Makes Your Teeth Easier to Clean

When your teeth are crowded or otherwise crooked, food is more likely to get trapped between them. Also, flossing and regular brushing to maintain good oral hygiene will be more effective when your teeth are straighter. The added benefit of undergoing treatment with Invisalign is that you can continue to brush your teeth just like normal; you just remove your aligners when it’s time to brush or floss.

It Will Make Your Teeth and Gums Healthier

Since food tends to get trapped in crooked teeth a lot more often, this will lead to gum disease and tooth decay much faster. Crowded teeth can also cause red and swollen gums. Orthodontic treatment will allow your teeth to shift into a more favorable alignment, allowing the gums to fit more securely around the teeth, lessen the food that gets trapped in them, and improve their health.

It Improves Your Overall Health Too

Unhealthy teeth can lead to gum disease and tooth decay. When left untreated, bacteria can cause other oral problems as well. This doesn’t just stop there either. This can also lead to even more serious risks such as heart disease, diabetes, and strokes.

It Can Boost Your Self Esteem

Orthodontic treatment can be used to boost one’s confidence as well. A lot of people with crooked teeth tend to hide their smiles and keep themselves from laughing around others because they don’t want their teeth to be seen. With the usage of orthodontic treatments such as Invisalign, a person can feel more comfortable smiling, laughing, and just acting like his or her true self. This can allow someone to achieve more confidence in social or professional settings.
