Over the past few years there has been an increase in the number of adults and teenagers turning to teeth straightening treatments to help improve the look of their teeth and improve their confidence in their smile.
There are a number of benefits to straightening your teeth and these include:
- Improved Confidence and Self Esteem
The main reason that people look to straighten their teeth is to improve their appearance. Straightening your teeth can help to improve your confidence and self-esteem, allowing you to relax and enjoy yourself in situations where you may have felt self-confident before. No longer will you need to worry about taking a photo of a special occasion or a selfie when out with your friends.
- Healthy Gums
If your teeth are overcrowded or crooked it can be difficult to ensure that your teeth are properly cleaned. Food debris can get caught in hard to reach areas between teeth and if left this can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. Straightening your teeth will ensure that your gums will fit more securely around your teeth and you will be able to adopt a complete oral hygiene routine including effective interdental cleaning in between your teeth and around your gums. This will reduce your risk of developing gum disease and in the long term can reduce the risk of tooth loss.
- Improved bite
Incorrectly aligned teeth can cause difficulty speaking, chewing, jaw problems, broken teeth and in the long term if left untreated can lead to headaches and other health problems. By properly aligning the bite through teeth straightening it is possible to reduce discomfort and wear caused to your teeth and jaw.
- Overall health
Your teeth and gums can provide an insight into your overall health. If your teeth and gums are well cared for, you are more likely to care for the rest of your body. Tooth decay and gum disease are caused by bacteria present in your mouth. If left untreated his can lead to bleeding gums, bad breath and possible tooth loss. Studies have shown that oral infections can also lead to more serious health conditions such as heart disease, stroke, pneumonia and diabetes. By straightening your teeth you will have a better chance of reducing oral infections and other potential health problems.

Braces are now becoming more accepted amongst adults and almost considered the norm amongst teenagers.
