Why Is It So Important To Have Straight Teeth?

For most people their reason for choosing an In-Line dentist in Bournemouth is to achieve a more beautiful smile which they hope will get them noticed for all the right reasons. However, straight teeth are also beneficial to your dental health as well as your overall health.

Straighter teeth give them the confidence to smile in all types of interaction and they don’t have to worry about making a bad impression because of crooked or misaligned teeth.

So aesthetics aside, let’s take a look at the benefits of teeth straightening in Bournemouth:

  • Ease of cleaning

Good oral hygiene entails brushing and flossing your teeth at least twice a day but if your teeth overlap or are crooked, then your hygiene routine may not be as effective as it should be. It can be difficult to get dental floss between and around crooked teeth. Overlapping teeth can obscure parts of a tooth’s surface making it difficult for you to reach with your toothbrush. Because you can’t clean your teeth properly when your teeth aren’t straight, your risk of tooth decay and gum disease is greatly increased. By straightening your teeth, it makes it easier for you to maintain a good level of oral health.

  • Risk of gum disease

Gums that are red and swollen may be the cause of teeth that are overcrowded or gapped. Gums don’t fit as well around teeth which are misaligned and this means that food and bacteria can get lodged in the gum tissue and cause infections which can lead to tooth loss. Gums hug straight teeth closely which helps to prevent this type of infection and in addition, because teeth are held in place more securely, people with straight teeth aren’t so vulnerable to tooth loss.

  • Better digestion

You probably wouldn’t visit your dentist with severe stomach cramps but if you’re experiencing digestive problems, then it could just be your teeth that are causing the problem. Crooked teeth and bad bites can make it harder for you to chew your food completely and as a result you may be swallowing large pieces of food or food which hasn’t been sufficiently broken down by the saliva in your mouth. With tooth straightening, Bournemouth dentists may be able to put an end to your stomach woes.
