Keep Your Teeth
Over the years, patients have been told that they need straight teeth in order to keep them, which is true, since straight teeth are easier to clean as well as easier to fix and restore should you have cavities or any other problems. It is therefore essential to get braces or Invisalign if you want to keep your teeth longer.
Straight Teeth Are Comfortable
It is difficult to say how comfortable straight teeth feel. However, you should be aware that if all your teeth chew food uniformly, your teeth will rarely be annoying or bothersome. If your teeth aren’t straight, you may find your bite is uncomfortable or feels off because of aging, wear and tear, trauma or fresh fillings. Furthermore, you may have had a sleep apnea appliance that has re-arranged your teeth, leaving you requiring orthodontic aligners or braces.
You get your teeth straightened if you care about your appearance since you may be critical of every space, turn and twist. You may also want to correct severe under-bites and flaring. Whatever the case, you should understand that once our orthodontist starts to work on a particular concern, they are obligated to complete the dental correction. This is because often, the problems that you notice are as a result of an underlying problem that you may not see or understand, such as a crooked lower tooth which may be caused by an upper tooth that is positioned too far into the palate, which is unnoticed.
Society places a high priority on a charming smile. Often, our orthodontist may create this smile themselves or with the help of other dentists. For example, older or middle-aged adults may have many veneers or crowns planned by their dentists. To achieve that, they have to place the teeth roots in correct positions before orthodontic restorations. The extra treatments by the dentists make the final result more attractive and successful.
