4 Surprising Health Benefits of Getting Braces Marietta, GA
Portrait of smilling couple.

Are braces right for you? They could have an impact not only on your smile’s looks, but also on your oral health.

  1. Enjoy A Whiter, Fresher Smile

    Straight teeth look nice in themselves. But as an added perk, they’re easier to keep clean from the bacteria that cause bad breath and stain. Whitening methods will be a lot more effective on straight teeth than on overlapping ones.

    Remember all those pieces of chicken and broccoli that get stuck between crowded teeth? Eliminate that social faux pas for good with the help of orthodontic treatment!

  2. Lower Your Cavity Risk

    Yes, braces reduce the risk of tooth decay!

    When your teeth are properly spaced out, they won’t accumulate the plaque and acids that wear down enamel. It’s also much easier to clean between your teeth with floss, which is also essential to limiting cavities.

  3. Get Healthier Gums

    Overlapped teeth pack debris closer to the gum line. As gums swell with inflammation, more and more bacteria can hide there. It could be difficult for your hygienist to clean around those teeth and impossible for you to do so at home.

    Getting braces reduces tension on your gums from twisted teeth and helps them stay free from disease.

  4. Relax Your TMJ

    Crooked teeth can throw off your bite so much that your jaw starts to overcompensate. This puts intense strain on your TMJ. It’s quite possible that a little orthodontic treatment could relieve headaches and jaw pain.
