Why straight teeth?
MORE THAN JUST FOR GOOD LOOKS
7 benefits of having an even smile
Everyone wants to have a straight and beautiful smile. Most of us don't understand the real benefits of having an even smile. Believe it or not, having an even set of teeth is more than just for good looks! There are plenty of dental, medical and psychological benefits to having a straight smile. Let's take a look at the top 7 reasons why you should straightening your smile:
(1) Looking good
There's no question that having a beautiful smile has a big impact on how others perceive you. After all, your smile is the first thing that others notice. So stop hiding your smile! Our definition of having a beautiful smile includes 3 characteristics, which are:
(1) Straight teeth
(2) Pearly-white teeth
(3) A full set of teeth
Clear aligners and braces can help you achieve your straight smile. For a whiter smile, considering getting professional teeth whitening or take-home whitening trays. Finally, to replace your missing teeth, talk to your dentist to discuss your tooth replacement options using a bridge or dental implant.
(2) Feeling good
Straightening your smile can transform your life. Having crooked teeth reduces your self-confidence and affects the way you perceive yourself. Sadly, people with crooked teeth smile less, don't like taking pictures of themselves and are constantly worried about being judged by their flawed smile. Some even learn to maneuver their lips or tilt their heads in such manner to hide their teeth. So yes, having a straight and beautiful smile can have a huge impact on your overall confidence.
(3) Healthier teeth
It's much, much easier to clean straight teeth as compared to crooked teeth. Having crooked teeth makes it more challenging to brush and floss properly. People with crowded teeth are at a much higher risk of developing dental cavities and tooth infections. Those suffering from crooked teeth are particularly susceptible to developing cavities in-between their teeth (known as interproximal cavities). Straightening your smile makes it easier to maintain adequate oral hygiene. As a result, you're likely to reduce your chances of developing dental cavities once you straighten your smile.
(4) Healthier gums
Having a straight smile protects your gums the same way it protects your teeth. People with straight teeth generally have healthier gums as compared to those with crooked teeth or gaps in their mouth. Teeth which are pressed tightly against one another are more difficult to clean. Similarly, gap teeth contributes to food trap and bone loss within the gap regions. These both increase your likelihood of developing gum disease. Gum disease causes your teeth to become sensitive, loose and possibly infected. Sad as it sounds, many people end up losing their teeth as a result of gum disease precipitated by crooked teeth. Straightening your teeth helps improve your gum health dramatically. This can help you clean your teeth better to reduce or even eliminate your gum disease once and for all.
(5) Fresh breath
Straightening your smile could also mean saying goodbye to stinky breath for good! Crooked teeth gather more plaque and tartar. This plaque and tartar buildup on your teeth can cause you to develop bad breath, also known as halitosis. Unfortunately, many people with bad breath aren't even aware that they're suffering from halitosis. How can you tell if you have persistent bad breath? There's a couple of ways to go about figuring this out discreetly:
- You may feel a persistent foul taste in your mouth
- If you put your hands on your mouth and exhale forcibly, you may be able to tell that something stinks!
- Maybe someone has hinted at your bad breath in the past
- If you suffer from sever dry mouth, you're probably suffering from halitosis as well
Luckily, there's a solution for those of you who are suffering from halitosis: straighte your teeth. Yes, straightening your smile can actually fix your bad breath! Having a straight set of teeth makes it easier to clean your teeth and gums. You gather less plaque and tartar on your teeth. This reduces, or possibly even eliminates, your bad breath problem once and for all. So quit buying more TicTacs and start saving up for some clear aligners or braces instead!
(6) Protect your bite
The average person chews 250,000 times a year ...that's a lot of chewing! Grinders, clenchers and stress cases tend to place 3 to 6 times as much forces on their teeth. All this stress can damage your teeth and existing dental restorations. If you also suffer from a poor bite, this also increases the pressure exerted onto your teeth. Consequently, people with a poor bite are much more likely to have trouble with their teeth as they continue to age. After all, your teeth can handle so much stress before they start cracking and falling apart! Here's what happens if you keep putting more and more pressure onto your teeth without doing something about it:
- Your teeth start to crack and break
- Existing dental restorations in your mouth, such as fillings or crowns, start to fail
- Your front teeth become chipped, cracked and worn out as you age while your back teeth become flat and lose their chewing efficiency
Straightening your smile helps improve your bite. It also protects your teeth from getting over-stressed. You'll probably end up spending much less time and money getting your teeth fixed when you're older. Straightening your smile also addresses your underlying bite problems to further protect your teeth against unexpected problems which may arise as we age.
AND THE FINAL REASON TO STRAIGHTEN YOUR SMILE ...
(7) Protect your head and neck
Having a poor bite does more than damage your teeth, fillings and crowns. A poor bite can also contribute to developing head & neck pain and discomfort. Having a poor bite strains your head and neck muscles, tendons and joints. This leads to muscle fatigue and pain which is ultimately responsible for headaches and migraines. One of the most common side-effects of a poor bite is over-stressing your TMJ (temporomandibular joint) which directly leads to tension migraines. Correcting your bite helps reduce the stress onto your muscles and joints and protects your head and neck. This could help reduce, or even eliminate, your head and neck problems which are caused by an uneven bite relationship.
