Advantages of straightening your teeth! By Dr Aaron Lai

You know that getting braces will give you straighter teeth, but did you know that the benefits go well beyond that? The benefits of braces are wide-ranging, so choosing us to design your smile can be one of the best investments you will make in your appearance and in your health!


Improved oral health

-Misaligned or crooked teeth can often cause an increase in food buildup between teeth. This is because food debris quickly collects in these spaces. It is less likely to be cleaned thoroughly when you have crooked teeth. As a result, individuals may experience an increase in plaque formation, a soft layer of matrix that is attached to tooth surface. Braces will help by creating an ideal position of teeth for ease of cleaning and eventually reduce the incidence of tooth decay and gum disease.


Improved self esteem and happier life

-Most patients come to do braces because they are unhappy or embarrassed about their smile. Many studies have shown that an attractive smile boosts self-esteem which is important at any age. For children, the development of a positive self-image can carry forward throughout life and contribute to future success.  For adults, self-esteem is critically important in many professional settings and social situations.


Better speech

-Many people didn’t know speech is not affected by voice alone. Misaligned teeth can disturbs pronunciation of certain words as it affects your tongue movement. Moving these teeth into alignment often improves speech issues quickly after treatment is finished.


Teeth are less prone to damage

-Misalign teeth may subject the teeth to unnecessary stress during biting. Uneven biting stress to teeth may cause fractures or tooth wear at a more rapid rate. Patients with protruding front teeth may be more susceptible to tooth damage or accidents as well, especially when playing sports.


Improved eating habits and better digestion

-Patients with teeth issues may experience difficulty in biting and chewing food. Straighten teeth can help improve a person’s health. Our digestive system begins in the mouth by thoroughly chewing the food and breaks it down into easily-digestible particles that allow our body to extract the most vitamins and nutrients from each meal.
