There are many reasons why one should consider orthodontics. For many, it is for cosmetic reasons, such as having a straighter smile and pearly white teeth. But many do get referred by their dentist for health reasons as well- and rightly so. Oral health is a window into your overall health. Orthodontics can help ensure the proper function of teeth and jaws. A good bite makes it easier for you to bite, chew, speak, and clean. At SKS Orthodontics, we advocate the benefits of orthodontics, and why it’s crucial to consider orthodontics when thinking about your health. So if you’re thinking of investing in orthodontic treatment, here are 3 reasons why it can pay off.
3 Reasons Why Orthodontics Are Important
- Improve Health- Whether braces or Invisalign are right for you, orthodontics can improve your overall physical health. Ailments from bad oral health can have a major effect on the rest of the body, and it is therefore extremely important to maintain excellent oral health. In addition orthodontic treatment can also correct overbites, underbites, open bites, crossbites, crowding, and spacing. This improves function and makes it easier to clean your teeth. And if spots are not cleaned properly, you increase the risk of cavities, tooth decay, and infection.
- Prevention- Not only can misaligned teeth impact your overall health and well-being, but there can be many other impacts as well. For children, early orthodontic treatment can prevent the need for tooth extractions or more complex oral surgeries that may be needed later on if the problem is left untreated. For adults, misaligned teeth can cause teeth to be chipped or broken due to abnormal forces or wear and tear.
- Appearance- For many, orthodontic treatment means having a better-looking smile. A straight and beautiful smile can make a person feel more confident in social settings. Your smile can have an impact on many areas of your life including your career, school, and social relationships.
