Why You Should Opt for Orthodontic Treatment
When you’re weighing the cost of orthodontic treatment with the normal length of treatment, it’s not uncommon to wonder if braces are worth it at all. They are indeed a significant commitment, and for people who need minor fixes, the benefits of the treatment might seem less obvious than for those with serious misalignment. But even for minor misalignment, braces can greatly improve your oral health, overall health, and confidence for the rest of your life!
3 Benefits of Straight Teeth
Improved Hygiene: Having straight teeth makes it easier to clean between teeth, in those hard-to-reach areas, that might otherwise be inaccessible with crooked teeth. Crooked teeth create spaces that are difficult or impossible to clean, which can lead to cavities, tooth decay, or even gum disease.
Lower Risk for Gum Disease: Having access to clean between your teeth prevents plaque buildup, which invites bacteria that can penetrate the gum line and ultimately lead to gingivitis or even more severe periodontal disease.
Lower Risk for Tooth Loss: Misaligned teeth can lead to plaque and bacteria buildup under the gum line near certain teeth and can eventually lead to the loss of those teeth. Big gaps in the teeth also can lead to jawbone decay underneath those spaces
