Orthodontic treatment is truly life-changing. In addition to improving your overall oral health, it increases your self-confidence for the rest of your life. We know that it’s a big decision to begin orthodontic treatment, so we’ve compiled a list of benefits to help you make the right choice.
The Benefit of Braces
Reduces problems associated with a bad bite
Misaligned teeth or teeth that protrude outward or inward can cause you to have a bad bite. Bad bites, or malocclusions, can cause a wide range of problems. Some issues include speech impediments or difficulty chewing and swallowing. Bad bites can also come from misaligned jaws, resulting in headaches and TMJ symptoms. If you hear popping or clicking when you open and close your mouth, you may have a bad bite.
At Skelton Orthodontics, Dr. Aimee Skelton will evaluate your bite and determine the best alignment for your unique needs. If you dream of being able to eat and speak properly without pain, contact our office.
Improves oral health
In addition to a bad bite, crowding is another common orthodontic problem. Crowded teeth can be so severe that they affect your ability to properly clean in between teeth. Even minor crowding can increase your risk of gingivitis and gum disease. Orthodontic treatment can adjust your teeth so that floss is easy to glide between each tooth.
With an improved and aligned bite, you will love your new smile. In addition, by making it easier to clean away hard-to-reach plaque, you will also have a healthier smile for life. No matter what your age, we can help you get the smile you’ve always wanted.
