To Straighten Twisted Teeth

Crowded or crooked teeth is not an issue, sometimes people like the shape of their teeth. The primary function of braces is to align the teeth and make them look naturally straight. There are many braces which can straighten your teeth such as traditional metal brackets and wires. Braces are recommended for cosmetic reasons and to maintain proper oral health.

Teeth crowding causes lack of proper hygiene makes brushing difficult and accumulates plaque leading to cavities or decay. On the other hand, large gaps between teeth can be a problem for oral hygiene because the food particles can be stuck between these gaps. Food impaction and lack of proper brushing technique will end up with interproximal cavities or bad breath. Straight teeth with proper space are good for brushing or flossing and finally to maintain proper oral health.

The procedure of braces is so amazing that you will see the change in a few months. Straight teeth help in proper chewing and grinding, which is beneficial for our oral as well as systemic health.  It enhances the proper growth of our jaws and proper digestion. Non-align teeth can be a reason for an overbite or clenching during sleep which in turn causes difficulty closing your teeth.

Straight teeth can be a treatment for my problems such as headache, TMJ issues, and sometimes even backache. If you are thinking to get braces and straighten your teeth book your appointment right now with your orthodontist. 

To rectify a Misaligned Bite

Over Bite: An overbite happens when the upper jaw comes out too far in front of the lower jaw when you bite down normally.

Underbite: An underbite occurs when your lower jaw comes out and overlaps your upper jaw.

Both of these bite issues happen due to multiple problems, that includes putting excessive force on some teeth, while the rest of the teeth will see little to no stress at all. These bits also put stress on the jaw itself, causing tension that can make the jaw ache or, again, cause you to clench your teeth, which is as bad for your teeth as it is for the jaw. Due to overbite and underbite, you can easily bite on your cheeks and lips which a really harmful for your mouth.

In many cases, correcting a bite can also have cosmetic benefits, such as once the two halves of the jaw are in a better position, the smile is more even and the teeth fit together much better giving you a beautiful outlook.

If you have an improper bite, getting the wire and bracket braces, along with bands that twist from the top to the lower jaw to help move the bite into better alignment, is the best way to correct this problem. Invisalign is one of the great recommendations for straightening teeth and has the added benefits of being removable for eating and cleaning, and nearly invisible in the mouth, but it can do little for correcting an overbite or underbite.

Crowded teeth or misaligned teeth do not create any serious health problem, but causes poor oral hygiene and gives a bad impression cosmetically. If you will have straight and aligned teeth then you will have a fresh and healthy mouth.

Having proper oral health is important for great overall health, and braces can be one of the treatments to gain good oral hygiene. Braces are helpful for a person who is going through a lack of self-esteem due to misaligned teeth, it improves the way you smile and gives you the confidence to smile without any hesitation. Do you want to restore your beautiful smile? If yes then get help from an orthodontist to smile a little wider and gain your confidence.
