Improving Your Oral Health with a Straighter Smile Marietta, GA
Happy Afro-American family of four with their dog sitting on the porch steps.

If you’ve thought about orthodontic treatment, chances are that it was initially an aesthetic concern. After all, most of us want to avoid crowded or gapped teeth that interfere with the way our smile looks. But did you know that a straighter smile could also help your mouth and body be healthier?

Avoid TMJ Disorders

When your teeth bite together improperly, your jaw motion is compromised. It may have to alter its natural joint movement when you bite and chew, day after day. Correcting the bite will reduce strain on the TMJ, preventing complications like joint pain, headaches and popping.

Prevent Broken Teeth and Fillings

Our teeth are extremely strong, but when they bite together in the wrong places they can wear down prematurely. This will cause flat, chipped tooth enamel and can lead to broken restorations such as fillings and crowns. Instead of having fillings that last for years, they pop out and need to be replaced continually due to the excessive wear.

Improve Your Oral Hygiene

Crowded, crooked teeth are more difficult to keep clean. They tend to have more plaque and tartar buildup around them. As a result, they also develop cavities at a higher rate than teeth that are perfectly straight. Correcting the tooth position makes it easier to clean each day.

Reduce the Risks of Gum Disease

Periodontal disease can increase your risk of health problems such as stroke, diabetes, obesity and even premature labor. People with crowded teeth are much more likely to have gum disease, and thereby higher bacterial levels in their body.
