The Benefits Of Straight Teeth

The most obvious benefit is the effect straight teeth have on the appearance of your smile. When your teeth are neatly aligned, your smile is more visually appealing. And, fair or not, it also affects the impression you make on other people. Surveys have shown that people with straight teeth are perceived to be more intelligent, friendlier, and more trustworthy.

We’ve also watched the effect a new smile can have on our patients. When people see their new teeth, they light up. More important than that initial reaction is the long-term benefit of a smile you are proud to share with the world.

When you are comfortable with your teeth, you feel more at ease in social and professional situations. Whether you are on a first date or a job interview, you won’t be worried that someone will judge you unfairly because of your smile.

Of course, having straight teeth also is better for your oral health. You still need to brush, floss, and get regular preventive care. When your teeth are in line, all of those things are more effective at removing bacteria, plaque, and food particles. As long as you maintain a consistent oral hygiene routine, you will be less likely to develop decay, gum disease, and more serious problems.

Choose The Right Option For You

If you want to straighten your teeth, you can count on the tried-and-true technique to get the job done. Braces have been helping people improve their smiles for centuries, and modern braces are more effective than they have ever been.

Brackets and wires are an excellent way to move teeth into better alignment and to correct bite issues you may be having. You can feel confident that braces can solve practically any issue you may have with the position of your teeth.

If you are hesitant to wear braces, then you should ask about Invisalign instead. This system uses a series of transparent, plastic aligners to gently push your teeth and transform your smile. the aligners are custom made for each patient. When worn over your teeth, they blend in with your smile. This way you can feel more comfortable wearing them in personal and professional situations.
