Multiple Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment
More mature patients may be seeking orthodontic care for the first time or as a follow-up treatment for teeth that have relapsed from previous orthodontic care. Whatever your reason, a straighter smile provides multiple benefits:
- Teeth are healthier because they are easier to clean.
- Teeth are protected from wearing down and chipping due to a misaligned bite.
- Alleviates pain in the jaw, neck, face and shoulders.
- Can help with migraine and other headaches.
- Gives patients a more youthful appearance.
Look Younger and Protect Your Smile with Straight Teeth
As we grow older, teeth continue to shift, sometimes because of the natural aging process or perhaps due to trauma or health conditions. Even those who enjoyed a straight smile in their youth may see a slow process of misalignment develop. This can add years to your appearance, sometimes giving the mouth a sunken appearance. Orthodontic care can restore a full and linear smile to you.
Another very common problem in older patients with misalignment is the development of tooth attrition. Attrition is when teeth get worn down and enamel is worn off due to teeth frequently rubbing against each other. This damages teeth and makes them more vulnerable to cavities. With restored alignment, teeth function properly and their anatomy is protected.
Crooked teeth can also make effective brushing and flossing more challenging, as bacteria hide in the nooks and crannies of dentition, contributing to tooth decay and gum disease. Straighter teeth are easier to clean properly and can help you maintain your smiles for a lifetime. It can also help prevent costly dental procedures.
Orthodontic Treatment Relieves TMD Pain and Headaches
When misalignment causes an imbalance in the temporomandibular joints, jaw pain can result. The tissues in the jaw can become inflamed, triggering pain in the head, neck, face and shoulder. Temporomandibular Join Disorder (TMD) is greatly reduced in many patients with orthodontic treatment.
Refreshing your smile and feeling more confident in its appearance also improves the quality of your lives. With a smile that enhances your natural beauty, you will add appeal and attraction to your appearance. Careers, relationships, and self-esteem benefit with a beautiful smile and aligned teeth.
