Teeth Straightening Benefits for Adults
Thinking that you’re “too old” for teeth straightening? Our dentist at Purity Dental Mulgrave might surprise you. At Purity Dental, we have many adult orthodontic patients!
Being Confident About How Your Teeth Look
Having a straight smile changes what you see when they look in the mirror or how you speak or smile for photos. When you feel confident about the appearance of your teeth, you’re most likely going to feel more confident about yourself. And we all know that a great smile is one of the best first impressions a person could ever make!
If crooked teeth is what’s interfering with your confidence, then teeth straightening could help you!
Lower Chance of Gum Disease and Cavities
Crooked teeth are usually far more likely to develop tooth decay or active periodontitis/gum disease. It simply has to do with the way they’re positioned and their increased chances of accumulating bacteria throughout the day. Plus, rotated or shifted teeth are more challenging to clean around. So even if you’re brushing and flossing each day, there might be plaque that’s getting left behind.
Fewer Cases of Headaches or TMJ Disorder
When your teeth occlude (bite) together properly, the pressure is evenly distributed across your entire mouth. That means less pressure on your jaw joint (TMJ) to function efficiently, without having to make special accommodations to chew or bite into your food. When it works like it’s supposed to, the muscles around it can perform efficiently rather than become overused.
