THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF STRAIGHT TEETH
We all know how a beautiful, straight smile can enhance a person’s appearance, making them look youthful, attractive, and healthy. But what many people aren’t aware of is that straight teeth also improve the health of your whole mouth.
- When your teeth are crowded or overlap each other, the tight spaces can be tough to clean and create a haven for bacteria to multiply, which leads to dental decay, infections, and gum disease
- If your bite is not correctly aligned, it can cause uneven wear and tear on your teeth and even damage your tooth and gum structures
- Bite problems can affect what you feel comfortable eating, reducing the number of crunchy, but healthy, fruits and vegetables you eat
- Issues with your bite and teeth also cause systemic issues such as headaches and tension in your jaw muscles and joints
Also, just as importantly, having a healthy smile that you are confident in showing off can have numerous benefits on your social, home, and work life. When you’re not afraid to smile, it can bring positive change in all aspects of your life!
