If you’re living with crooked or gappy teeth, you’ll know how feeling down about your smile can affect your life. Now, more and more adults are turning to fast, discreet braces to get the smile they’ve always wanted. But are there more reasons why teeth straightening is good for you? Yes! Here are 5 for you:
1. Your teeth will be cleaner
It’s easier to get at all the surfaces of your teeth with your brush and floss when your teeth aren’t overlapping. Cleaner teeth means fresher breath. And teeth will stay in better condition so you will have less oral health problems in the future.
2. You’ll have better overall health
Did you know gum disease can contribute to heart disease and diabetes? Scary stuff. And another reason to keep your teeth and gums clean.
3. Have fewer headaches
If your teeth have alignment issues, it can lead to teeth grinding or an out of shape bite. Both can cause headaches.
4. Avoid chipped and cracked teeth
The more out of line your teeth are, the more likely it is they will chip or crack through everyday use as you get older. Damaged teeth can lead to decay and eventually, missing teeth. So by straightening up your gnashers your investing in your oral health.
5. Greater self esteem and confidence
Research proves that the act of smiling makes us happier. Feeling happy about your smile will give you the confidence to show it off. And you’ll pick up on these happy vibes to boot.
