3 Reasons You Should Consider Orthodontics
Why Choose Orthodontics?
Have you been considering orthodontics and wonder if the treatment is worth the time and effort for your smile? We offer several options at our Temple, TX dental office that make your treatment more comfortable, faster, and easier than you might think. But you may still wonder if the investment involved with orthodontic treatment is necessary for your smile. Here are the top three reasons why you should consider orthodontics:
- Appearance – For the majority of people, the problem with tooth alignment is an esthetic one. Everyone wants a set of perfectly aligned teeth, and if you feel self-conscious because of your appearance, it may be time to consider orthodontic treatment.
- Oral Health – Teeth that are crooked and crowded are difficult to clean properly. If you can't get a toothbrush or floss between your teeth, you aren't getting the most out of your oral hygiene efforts. Improper oral hygiene can lead to problems like periodontal disease and decay. Since orthodontics move your teeth into the optimal position, it's easy to brush and floss properly. You won't believe how your outlook can change when you know your teeth are as healthy as they can be!
- Function – If your teeth are misaligned, it can be difficult to eat certain foods because your teeth don't meet properly when you bite down. Problems with your dental bite can cause discomfort such as cheek and lip biting when you eat, which can make you avoid some of the foods you love. Since orthodontic treatment moves your teeth into optimal alignment, you will be able to go back to eating all your favorite foods comfortably.
