Learn more about braces here! Orthodontic treatment has many health and lifestyle benefits reaching beyond having confidence in a beautiful smile. Having "straight teeth" can aid in brushing, give you clearer speech, make it easier to eat, give you less accident-prone teeth (protruding teeth are more prone to breaking), fewer headaches, improved gum health, more cost-effective dental care, and increased self esteem. Because you are able to brush straight teeth more effectively, your improved oral hygiene means less tooth decay and gum disease, which are in turn linked to heart disease and high blood sugar.
