Benefits of Straight Teeth
Posted on 03/09/2017

After helping thousands of patients achieve beautiful, healthy smiles, we know the true benefits of straight teeth. Patients are most excited to see themselves with beautiful, brand-new smiles. However, the benefits of a straight smile do not stop there. A healthy smile with straight teeth comes with a variety of benefits you will enjoy for the rest of your life, whether you are a child, teenager, or adult.

A Healthier, More Beautiful Smile

Perhaps the most obvious benefit of straight teeth is the cosmetic enhancement after orthodontics. Straight teeth lend a beautiful appearance to the smile and to the overall appearance of the face. After orthodontic treatment with braces or Invisalign, you will feel the effects of a more beautiful smile you can enjoy forever.

In addition to aesthetics, a “straighter” smile also provides a psychological benefit. Having a beautiful smile may provide a boost in confidence, happiness, and self-esteem in both your personal and professional life. From first dates to big presentations at work, everything is easier when you feel confident about your smile, and that confidence stays with you for life.

Health Benefits

In addition to aesthetic and psychological benefits, a straight smile also improves your oral and general health. Straight teeth are easier than misaligned teeth to keep clean. Crooked teeth create nooks that are perfect places for bacteria and plaque to grow and develop. By aligning your teeth, it is easy to keep them clean, thereby minimizing your risk for dental decay and cavities. Since there seems to be a link between periodontal infections and more serious conditions like cardiovascular disease, the health component of a straight smile is potentially the most importatnt.
