Can Braces Help Combat Tooth Decay? Marietta, GA

Braces are often thought of as a cosmetic treatment, but they can also help improve your oral wellness, jaw function, and even reduce your risk of tooth decay. At East Cobb Orthodontics in Marietta, we believe that straightening your teeth can have a positive impact on your oral health. Here’s how:

  • Crooked, Crowded Teeth at an Increased Cavity Risk – When teeth are crooked or crowded, it can be more difficult to clean them properly. This can lead to an increased risk of tooth decay and gum disease in hard-to-clean spaces. By straightening your teeth with braces, you can create a more even surface that is easier to clean.
  • Straight Teeth are Easier to Clean – When teeth are properly aligned, it is easier to clean between them and remove plaque and bacteria. They’re also less prone to getting food caught between them during meals. Correcting their alignment can help prevent tooth decay and gum disease because it’s easier to access all of the surfaces with a toothbrush and floss.

It’s also worth mentioning that straight teeth can reduce the likelihood of tooth wear and damage, which may also lead to decay and other dental problems.
