Crooked and misaligned teeth are unsightly and will affect the appearance of your smile. It will also be difficult to clean crooked teeth thereby increasing the risk of periodontal disease and tooth loss that may result in tooth loss. However, such crooked teeth can be treated through various orthodontic treatment. An orthodontist will, however, recommend the appropriate orthodontic treatment for you.
Orthodontic treatment is very necessary for people with crooked and misaligned teeth. This is because crooked teeth will not just be hard to clean but could lead to other issues such as the TMJ disorder, headaches, neck and shoulder pain. Your smile will also be affected by the unsightly appearance. For individuals with an unsightly smile, they often avoid going to social activities or events because they feel embarrassed. However, you can restore your smile through orthodontic treatments.
Orthodontic treatment uses braces to treat crooked and misaligned teeth. Traditionally, metal braces are used to straighten crooked teeth. The problem with metal braces is that there are a number of shortcomings associated with them. They often look unsightly. This means that people will realize you are receiving orthodontic treatment. Because it can be embarrassing wearing metal braces, such people will often avoid going to social events and activities.
Today, however, you can choose an alternative to such metal braces. Such alternatives are Invisalign and clear braces. The treatment options help to boost your confidence even as you receive the treatment. Unless a person gets so close, they would not notice you are wearing aligners.
When your teeth are straightened using beautiful smile braces, your healthy, beautiful smile is restored. You will also enjoy other benefits when you have a straight smile. You will have an improved self-confidence which can impact on your career. You will also not avoid social events and activities due to the increased confidence.
Other than enhance smile appearance, orthodontic treatment comes with other benefits. Some of the benefits will include the following.
1. Better oral hygiene.
It is not easy cleaning crooked teeth. Because of poor oral hygiene, chances of cavities increase and tooth loss may also occur. But once you have straightened teeth, it will be easier to clean your teeth. With such improved oral hygiene the risk of periodontal disease and tooth decay is reduced.
2. Reduced TMJ discomfort.
TMJ disorder may occur due to the strain on chewing muscles by orthodontic problems. TMJ disorder results in headaches and sore jaws. When you have a straight smile, the discomfort caused by the TMJ disorder is minimized. A straight smile reduces the strain on the chewing muscles thus decreasing TMJ discomfort.
