Getting your teeth straightened isn’t just about getting some braces or aligners fitted so you can have a more beautiful smile.
If you have misaligned teeth there are a number of benefits to getting your teeth straightened.
- It is easier to keep your teeth and gums clean
- There is likely to be less wear and tear on your teeth from clenching and grinding
- There is likely to less stress on the jaw joint and tooth structure from incorrect biting patterns
Your dentist is the best person to give a full diagnostic assessment and determine if you’ll benefit from teeth straightening.
Braces are the first thing many people think of when they consider getting their teeth straightened, but orthodontic treatment has come a long way with a choice now available of classic metal and clear styles. Most adults now like the idea of “invisible” braces or aligners like Invisalign because they are able to clean their teeth to a high standard, and the aligners don’t significantly affect your lifestyle in that they are comfortable to wear and can be removed.
