The Benefits of Braces
Having crooked or overlapping teeth can cause serious issues for your smile but braces can help.
Are you looking for a way to fix that gap between your teeth? Do you hate how crowded your teeth have become? Do you wish your teeth were less crooked and more even? If so, you certainly aren’t alone. Both children and adults are turning to our Port Orchard, WA, dentist, Dr. Ronald Schoepflin, to get braces. Find out the many advantages to getting orthodontic treatment.
A more attractive smile
This is one of the more obvious benefits but one that shouldn’t go ignored. After all, being able to get a straighter smile and get rid of gaps between teeth and crookedness can go a long way to improving your appearance. Since a smile is often one of the first features someone notices about you, knowing you have a gorgeous smile will certainly improve your appearance.
You’ll feel more confident
This brings us to our next point: confidence. Anyone with spacing issues, malocclusions (“bad bites”) or crowding will tell you that they feel embarrassed by their smile. Of course, the moment those braces come off and your smile is even and straighter you’ll instantly feel a boost to your self-esteem. You won’t have to worry about needing to hide your smile from those around you.
You’ll reduce your risk for decay
Since teeth that are crowded or overlapping often make it more challenging to clean properly our Port Orchard general dentist finds that having these issues puts patients at an increased likelihood for developing cavities. Even the very best brushers and flossers won’t be able to get around these hard-to-reach areas. In this case, the best way to combat this is to get braces to fix these issues and make cleaning teeth much easier.
You’ll be less likely to deal with dental injuries
If you have a severe overbite or underbite then there may be unnecessary pressure being placed on some of your teeth. As a result, you are more likely to deal with chipped, cracked or fractured teeth. To prevent this dental damage all you have to do is get braces. There are so many different types of braces available, from traditional metal braces to clear brackets to nearly invisible removable aligners. How you straighten your smile is up to you.
