Interesting Benefits Of Straight Teeth – Parenting Prattle


If you have bad teeth, that are perhaps misaligned or just a little crooked looking; it can dent your self-confidence and stop you from smiling.  When you don’t smile because of bad teeth, don’t feel good on the inside and don’t look good on the outside.  While it is true that having straight teeth can give you a beautiful smile which makes you feel and look more attractive; having straight teeth has more than just aesthetic and psychological benefits.  As you will see in the following article, there are many other positive benefits to having straight teeth; giving you good motivation to seek out invisible braces.

Decrease In The Risk Of Gum Disease And Tooth Decay

When you have crowded or crooked teeth, they often overlap with one another and create very tight and small gaps in between and therefore the chance of chipping a tooth is greatly increased.  It is also a lot trickier to brush and floss your teeth and gums effectively when your teeth are not properly aligned.  This gives plaque and other bacteria the chance to build up, which in turn can lead to gum disease and tooth decay.  When you have orthodontic treatment, such as having invisible braces put in, to correctly space and align your teeth, you able to brush better.  This means that your gums will be healthier and there will be little to inflammation on them.  As bad breath, or halitosis, is caused by bacteria growing on food particles left in your mouth, having straight teeth that are easier to brush and maintain, not only improves how your mouth looks on the inside, but how it smells as well.


Improves Your Speech

Although you may not realise it – your teeth play a very crucial part in your speech.  Within your mouth it is your palette, tongue, lips and teeth that work together to form sounds.  Many of the sounds you make when you speak are made by pressing or curling your lips against your teeth.  Distortions in the sounds that may occur in your speech patterns could be the result of some or all of your teeth leaning too far back or forwards or out of line with one another.  Wearing braces can enable you to speak in a much clearer, more professional manner because they help to re-position the teeth.  In any professional career, regardless of whether it involves speaking to public gatherings or audiences or not, you are required to communicate and speak in a clear and professional manner.

Therefore, if you have crooked and misaligned teeth that cause your speech to sound muffled and distorted in one way or another; it could adversely affect your career options.

Slows And Prevents Bone Erosion

The gun and bone tissue in your mouth starts to erode when there are no teeth in place to support   However, you can expect the same result if your teeth are not aligned properly and there are spaces and gaps.  By wearing braces you can slow down and prevent the bones and tissues in your mouth eroding.

Improves Your Digestion

As well as the above, teeth also play a vital role in digesting food.  Long before your food actually arrives in your stomach, it has already been digested by your teeth.  However, if your teeth are no aligned properly, they will be unable to as effectively help digest your food than if they were straight.
