A bright smile full of perfectly straight teeth is a wonderful way to show someone you care or make a great first impression! Unfortunately, not all of us are lucky enough to have one of those smiles without a little help. As it turns out, there are many benefits to having straight teeth aside from it being a great confidence booster.
First of all, feeling comfortable about your teeth means you’re far more likely to smile. Smiling boosts your self-confidence! Something as simple as grinning to yourself and others throughout your day promotes the desire to accomplish goals and get things done. Straight teeth also vastly improve your physical health. They help keep gums healthier as they’re easier to floss thoroughly. Avoiding flossing or missing spots of your gums due to overlapping teeth can lead to periodontal disease. This causes bleeding gums that can allow bacteria to enter your bloodstream and lead to major health issues. Maintaining your million-dollar smile also prevents bad breath, tooth loss, and receding gums. All of which can be extremely unpleasant and lead to more serious issues down the line.
Also, straight teeth make the way you bite, better! Having uneven teeth that don’t align correctly as you eat can cause major issues such as chips or cracking of teeth, decay, uneven wear on the enamel of your teeth, as well as jaw pain and other TMJ issues that cause extreme discomfort and sensitivity. Once enamel is gone, it can’t be replaced so it is vital that we care for it as well as possible.
