Benefits of Orthodontics
The overall benefit of braces is straighter teeth and pleasing smile, but the results of treatment add up to so much more. The Epic Dental orthodontics team focuses on giving you an improved smile as well as a properly aligned bite. This will help boost your self-confidence and your ability to efficiently clean and maintain your teeth, enabling you to enjoy a healthy smile for a lifetime.
- Self-confidence: Most people choose braces and orthodontic treatments to correct imperfections so they can love their smile. If you are a child, an improved smile can mean freedom from self-consciousness. If you are an adult, it can lead to a better social and professional life. A beautiful, healthy smile translates into happiness, invites communication, and opens the doors to success and fulfillment!
- Easier ability to clean your teeth: Since crooked teeth are harder to clean and maintain, people with crowding tend to have more tooth decay and gum problems than people who have had orthodontic treatment. Cavities and worsening gum disease can eventually lead to tooth loss. Pre-emptive orthodontic treatment, such as braces, can be less costly than the additional care required later to treat dental problems and periodontal disease arising as a result of neglected orthodontic issues. As a bonus, your regular visits for dental hygiene will be easier with straight teeth.
- Improved bite & less tooth wear: Chewing is the important first step in digestion. Orthodontic problems can contribute to abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, resulting in inefficient chewing function. Abnormal forces stemming from a misaligned bite can also cause excessive stress on the gums and the bone that supports the teeth. It can even lead to misalignment of the jaw joints. Orthodontic treatment will correct you tooth alignment and improve your bite, correcting these issues. You will be able to properly chew your food, and stress to the gums and bones will be alleviated.
