Everyone wants an attractive smile and braces are a popular dental treatment to enhance your appearance. Did you know, though, that orthodontics offer more benefits than straighter teeth? Manson Dentistry offers several orthodontic options to give you a beautiful smile and better oral health.
A Healthier Smile
When teeth are crooked and crowded together, it creates an ideal condition for bacteria to flourish and tooth decay to occur. Teeth that are in too close proximity to one another are difficult to keep clean and floss between. By creating better alignment and spacing in your smile, you can keep your teeth cleaner and reduce your risk of gum disease and cavities.
When teeth are misaligned, daily biting and chewing can take a toll on your smile. The uneven force of crooked teeth can increase your risk of tooth fracture, while causing wear and tear on your tooth enamel and jaws. Orthodontic therapy improves the quality of your dental health by creating a more comfortable, natural bite.
Relief From Migraines and Muscle Pain
Misaligned teeth often result in a misaligned bite – and that can lead to muscle pain. The tension that begins in your jaw can move into your neck and then your shoulders, eventually causing painful migraines. With orthodontic treatment, we can correct your bite, and sometimes relieve your muscle tension, and ultimately treat the underlying cause of your migraine suffering.
Better Chewing Function
Orthodontics can do more for your smile than straighten your teeth. Dr. Manson often uses braces to correct problems such as overbite, underbite and narrow arches. By improving your jaw structure, you can benefit from better chewing motion and function.
