Benefits of adult braces
For many of our patients, their reason for orthodontic treatment is purely cosmetic. They may simply wish to have the confidence to smile in public, or they want to straighten a crooked front tooth that has been bothering them for years.
But there are significant health benefits from having orthodontic treatment as well.
- Straight teeth can reduce plaque build-up, thus reducing your risk of developing gum disease, known as gingivitis.
- Correctly aligned jaws can enable you to chew your food properly, thus helping your digestive system and ensuring your body extracts the necessary vitamins and minerals from your diet.
- Well positioned teeth are much easier to clean, thus reducing bacteria which can cause other adverse side effects.
