Most people find straight teeth to be more attractive, but how often do you hear people mention that a straighter smile is better for your oral health? According to your dentist, a straighter smile offers many health benefits that you may not have realized existed. This includes an easier oral care routine, a lower chance of gum disease and tooth decay, lower chance of tooth wear and injury, and many others!
With benefits like these, it’s no surprise so many people are choosing clear braces in Daytona Beach! You’ll find many benefits compared to the traditional hardware used in orthodontics.
Learn the ClearCorrect Difference!
For all your mild to moderate cases of misalignment and poor bites, clear braces from ClearCorrect in Daytona Beach are an ideal solution. No longer do you have to settle for brackets and wires, which force you to change your diet and brushing routine. These custom-fitted trays are designed to fit snugly around your teeth, applying small amounts of pressure over several months.
Since these aligners are removable, you can still practice regular oral care and eat the foods you want without worry. Since they’re clear, your peers won’t even notice that you’re undergoing treatment and you won’t have to worry about making significant changes to your image.
Straighter Teeth = Easier Oral Care Regimen
When teeth are crooked, it creates far more opportunities for food debris to get caught and breed oral bacteria. It’s also more difficult to clean all the surfaces of your teeth, whether your brushing or flossing. In comparison, straight teeth help you target all the surfaces of your teeth more effectively.
Your Overall Health Will Improve
The easier your mouth is to clean, the less likely you’ll experience gum disease and tooth decay. The less dental disease you have, the better your overall health will be as well! Since oral disease and overall health have been proven time and time again to be connected, the less oral disease you have, the lower your risk is of diseases outside the mouth, including heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.
A Lower Chance of Tooth Wear
Speaking of overall health, crooked teeth are typically more associated with cases of TMD, or temporomandibular disorder. TMD occurs when uneven distribution of force in the bite causes additional stress to your TMJ, a joint that connects your lower jaw and skull. By fixing your uneven bite, you can greatly reduce your risk of TMD and avoid mouth and jaw pain, tooth enamel wear, headaches, and other symptoms that negatively affect your daily life.
Your Confidence Will Soar!
When your smile is looking straighter and healthier than ever, you just might get caught smiling way more often. People who smile more are more likely to:
- Have an improved outlook
- Have a better attitude
- Be considered more attractive
- Appear more confident and credible
So why wait any longer to see if clear braces in Daytona Beach are right for you? Schedule an appointment with your dentist today to learn more!
