Braces: More Than Just Teeth Alignment
Braces are often believed to be a luxury that has low priority if you’re not very particular with the way your teeth look when you smile. This idea underestimates the real necessity of braces for those who really need them. The reality is, aside from a beautiful smile and a more confident you, braces have more benefits health-wise and comfort-wise. Below enumerate these benefits:
Braces Prevent Cavities. True enough, having better aligned teeth makes it easier to remove food trapped in-between teeth. Properly spaced and aligned teeth minimizes hard to remove food particles by simply allowing a toothbrush to do its work or for hard to remove food items (beef, pork, etc.), it is easier to floss as compared to flossing crookedly aligned teeth.
Braces Prevent Gum Disease. Gums cannot properly support a tooth when crookedly aligned resulting to gum disease. This weakens the gums around the tooth allowing foreign particles and bacteria to reside between them. This normally result gingivitis… or worse… periodontitis. Properly aligned and spaced teeth allow the gums to firmly hold each tooth eliminating unnecessary spaces where bacteria and foreign food particles may get trapped and eventually cause discomfort.
Braces Promote Good Digestion. Properly aligned teeth allows you to chew food properly and comfortably. This is the first step of the digestive process when, if not properly done, results to the stomach working overtime to digest the food, or worse, indigestion.
Braces Promote Proper Jaw Movement. Have you ever felt your jaws get tired of chewing even for brief time of chewing? This may be caused by jaws not properly aligned due to crooked teeth. This also causes overbite or underbite that may cause discomfort, and in some cases, having your jaws get overworked may result to lockjaw. Properly aligned and spaced teeth gives ease when chewing and further prevents damaging the enamel of teeth in-between bites.
