Do you think crooked teeth look bad? Just imagine how bad they can smell! We want to tell you about the issues that crooked teeth cause for patients. Most people assume that, since crooked teeth are a cosmetic issue, they can wait. If you’re in this camp, you’re incorrect, as they can quickly become a more serious issue for your smile. Correcting your them now will save you money in the long run. Let us show you why!
Advantages To Correcting Crooked Teeth
- It’s easier to clean your teeth: Teeth that are straight and not overlapping are easier to clean. The gaps and spaces within in your smile make it more difficult to find and remove food or debris. Failure to properly clean your teeth results in tooth decay.
- It improves your overall oral health: Tooth decay and cavities cause many issues in your mouth. Many of these issues are linked to more serious conditions that will affect your overall health, like diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. Also, if you ignore fixing this issue, they will continue to grow crooked, progressively making your condition worse over time.
- It eases or prevents jaw pain: Crooked teeth that are left untreated will keep growing crooked until you correct them. They will cause overcrowding with your surrounding teeth. Eventually, you may form either an overbite or underbite, depending on which way your crooked teeth are growing. Also, crooked teeth that are pushing your jaw forward can put unnecessary stress on your jaw causing a very uncomfortable issue called TMJ.
- It gives a boost a confidence: While the benefits of a straighter smile are so much more than for just appearance, it can’t be denied that a beautiful smile makes a difference in how you see yourself and how others see you as well. It will help your confidence when going for that much-deserved raise or attempting to ask a crush out on a date.
