The investment in straightening your teeth is valuable. Did you know that properly aligned teeth that and good overall health go hand in hand? There are many reasons people seek to correct their crooked teeth and improving their appearance is just one of them. The American Dental Association informs of some oral health issues that arise from teeth that are misaligned, crowded, or crooked. These include tooth decay, impaired speech, and jaw pain, or TMJ. You can check with your dentist or orthodontist for their recommended treatment to correct bad alignment and prevent dental problems in the future.
Straight Teeth Are Easier to Clean
Teeth that are crowded or crooked are harder to brush and floss. It is more difficult to clean them as well as necessary. When bacteria are not cleaned from the teeth properly you may experience tooth decay and/or gum disease. Gum disease can lead to bleeding and receding gums, bad breath, and even tooth loss. Visiting your dentist twice a year for a thorough cleaning will help to avoid these problems and keep your mouth healthy.
Oral Hygiene Contributes Greatly To Your Overall Health
The importance of straight teeth are more than appearance and self-esteem. Straight teeth alignment provides an important aspect to ensure correct bite position, clean teeth, and the health of your entire body. Physically, oral health affects your entire body. If you have poor oral hygiene, you could develop bleeding gums and/or gum disease. This can allow bacteria from your mouth to enter your bloodstream. Heart disease and diabetes can occur due to this when infections from your mouth get into your bloodstream.
