Teeth that are straight and properly spaced can enhance a person’s facial appearance. Not everyone is born with a perfect smile, but orthodontic treatment from a specialist at Orthodontist Select can make this goal possible. Going beyond their cosmetic effect, orthodontic treatment can be important to your dental and overall health in the following ways:

Orthodontics can prevent dental diseases

Teeth that are crooked or crowded together lack the spaces in between to allow for proper cleaning. The hampering of brushing and flossing can result in the accumulation of plaque and bacteria, which can in turn lead to both decayed teeth and diseased gums. In combination with good hygienic practices, braces can reduce the chance of such problems developing over time.

Orthodontics can enhance speech

In addition to the tongue, teeth are important to proper speech. Teeth that are badly misaligned, leaning too far one way or the other, can adversely affect a person’s speech patterns. This can be frustrating personally and socially. By properly adjusting the teeth, braces can improve your speech and perhaps even how you interact with others.

Orthodontics can protect the underlying bone structure

The support provided by teeth atop the gums is important to the bones underneath. The spaces that result from misaligned teeth can thus lead to bone erosion and its implications. However, bone erosion is much less likely if teeth that have been straightened by braces continue to provide this support.

Orthodontics can help with proper digestion

The ability to eat and properly digest food is important to the entire body, but is only possible through the actions of the mouth and teeth. Misaligned teeth may not adequately break down food products, which can adversely affect the entire digestive process. Proper nutrition can thus be enhanced by teeth that have been straightened by braces.
