Many of the patients who come to the surgery seek to solve an aesthetic problem with orthodontic treatment, but there are health reasons, some of them very important, which normally make this type of treatment advisable.
1. To improve the bite.
It allows the teeth to carry out their main function, chewing, correctly, so that we can eat more healthily by improving digestion.
We will not overload the jaw joint and related structures. We will avoid headaches, bad posture, pain in the TMJ, contractures in the head and neck area and …..
2. Fewer cavities and healthier gums
Crowded and misaligned teeth are more difficult to clean and food accumulates in gaps and hard-to-reach spaces. Good alignment will make our daily cleaning more effective and therefore our teeth and gums will be healthier.
3. Dental wear is reduced
Poorly aligned teeth that protrude and do not fit together properly wear down prematurely. Orthodontics also helps us to avoid this problem.
4. Improves self-esteem
This is not a minor or frivolous matter. A healthy and aesthetically pleasing mouth helps us to relate better to others and gives us confidence, raising our self-esteem, reducing stress, encouraging us to smile and sing.
