Braces have some very obvious benefits, such as straightening your teeth, but there are a wide variety of other benefits that braces have on the overall health of your mouth which we shall discuss in our latest post.
Braces and Gum Disease
Although you may never have made the connection before, braces can, in fact, help to prevent gum disease. By correctly aligning your teeth and closing the gaps, you will find it easier to floss and brush your teeth effectively. What’s more, with more effective brushing, you minimise the risk of tooth decay by removing harmful bacteria that accumulate in tiny crevices.
If you can’t chew your food effectively, you may find it more difficult to digest. Consequently, once your braces have carefully spaced out your teeth, you will find chewing a wide variety of foods a lot easier and your stomach may just thank you for it.
There’s no doubt about it, braces can have a dramatic effect on your smile and provide you with a big boost of confidence. Whether you are looking to change the appearance of your smile for a special day such as your wedding, or have been wanting straighter teeth for a long time, braces could be the answer.
If your teeth are badly out of alignment, you may find pronouncing certain sounds more difficult. By straightening your teeth with braces, you may find it easier to pronounce certain words and be less likely to bite the sides of your mouth or your lip.
