Why choose an orthodontic treatment?
An orthodontic treatment obviously corrects the appearance of the teeth, however, there are many advantages beyond the radiant smile of your dreams:
- Easy to upkeep
- Effective chewing
- Less jaw muscle and joint problems
- Less tooth wear
Properly aligned teeth are much easier to care for and accumulate much less plaque and food debris. Consequently, there is less risk of gum disease (gingivitis and periodontitis) and cavities.
A maximum of contact between the teeth means food is properly chewed, which in turn aids digestion. Incorrectly aligned teeth can also injure the cheeks and cause damage to the gums and palate.
A well balanced dental occlusion promotes a healthy masticatory system.
Properly indented teeth distribute force equally to prevent excessive pressure.
