WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS TO ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT?
The benefits of orthodontic treatment can truly last a lifetime making it a great investment at any age. Some of these benefits include:
Positive psychological effects:It can have a very positive impact on the way you feel about yourself. Your self-esteem in daily life will grow and you will feel more confident about interacting with others and increasing your circle of friends.
Healthier teeth and gums:This is possible since straight teeth eliminate the hard-to-reach places in your mouth that are tough to brush and floss. This can reduce your risk of developing cavities and periodontal (gum) disease over time.
Alignment of your jaws and bite:Orthodontics can improve your jaw and bite alignment that improves their ability to chew and function properly. The proper function of this complex system of jaw joints and muscles allow them to work in harmony and comfort.
Reduced wear and tear of your teeth: Wear and tear can cause weak, fragile, severely worn, or even broken teeth as well as the loss of supporting bone and gum tissue caused by unhealthy amounts of forces or stress placed on them. Orthodontics can help reduce that.
