The far reaching benefits of straight teeth

If someone told you that you could improve your heart’s health, boost your self-esteem and happiness, and lower your risk of headaches all by having straight teeth…would you believe them?  If you said no – rethink your answer. These ailments, along with numerous others, are in some cases directly related to the positioning of your teeth.

Benefits of straight teeth include:

  • Easier to floss

Straight teeth allow for easier flossing which keeps gums healthier and less prone to infection and swelling. Regular flossing is connected to improved cardiovascular health.

  • Easier to clean

Teeth that are straight are easier to brush and clean professionally. Clean teeth prevent bad breath and other unfavorable conditions like plaque and tartar buildup.

  • Easier to chew and bite comfortably

By aligning the teeth, there is an improved distribution of force and wear patterns on front teeth and molars. Misaligned teeth can cause jaw tension and headaches, and orthodontics can correct the alignment and relieve tension.

  • Increased self-confidence

No longer do people have to hide their smile because of teeth misalignment. Individuals who have had orthodontic treatment feel confident to show their smile and without fear of judgment.

  • Reduces risk for expensive restorative dental procedures in the future

Because teeth are easier to clean and maintain, and the bite is properly aligned, teeth and associated supporting structures are less likely to break or prematurely age.

If you were not lucky enough to be born with straight teeth you are not alone.  Dr. Roeder serves patients in and around Asheville, NC and has over 20 years of experience helping adults, teens and children with their orthodontic needs.
