Limited Adult Ortho – Six Month Smiles

We all know straighter teeth look better, but did you know they function better and are healthier too?

What’s healthier about straighter teeth?

Misaligned teeth can lead to premature wear, tooth loss, gum disease, and the buildup of bacteria associated with bigger problems, including heart disease.

Some American adults have some kind of issue with their bite, such as crowding, spacing, or overbites — your dentist may use the word malocclusion.

MALOCCLUSION: Abnormal tooth alignment

Are you experiencing:

  • cold sensitivity
  • receding gums
  • biting lips, cheek, or tongue
  • indentations at the gum line
  • teeth chipping or wearing
  • speech changes or lisping
  • food getting caught between teeth
  • bad breath
  • dry mouth or mouth breathing
  • difficulty flossing
  • jaw or muscle pain or headaches
  • self-consciousness when smiling for photos

Straight Teeth are Healthier Teeth

When your teeth are properly aligned, the health benefits are clear.

It’s easier to brush and floss around properly aligned teeth, and you are less likely to have pockets between gums and teeth that trap bacteria.

Properly aligned teeth reduce plaque retention, tooth decay, and the risk of gum disease.

Aligned teeth reduce the risk of tooth chipping, breaking, and wear, which can require expensive procedures to repair. Proper alignment also reduces stress on the jawbones and joints.
