There’s much more to aligned teeth than just the look of a million-dollar smile. Crooked or misaligned teeth lead to a bad bite or malocclusion, which impacts your smile, oral health, and overall health. At Unionville Orthodontics, we want to help you lead a happy, healthy, and prosperous life. Let’s look at some of the benefits of having a set of properly aligned teeth.
Stop Living in Pain
Patients are often quick to associate headaches and neck pains with stress or hunching over a computer screen. However, these chronic problems can also originate from your mouth.
Poor teeth alignment, missing or uneven teeth impact your bite and may strain the jaw joints. Inflamed, sore, and irritated jaw joints can lead to temporomandibular joint disorder or TMD. The inflammation may lead you to grind your teeth and clench your jaw.
Eventually, this strain in the jaws can shift into your facial muscles, causing chronic headaches, neck, and shoulder pains. TMD-induced headaches and pains are severe in the morning, after a night of grinding and clenching.
Improved Professional Success
You’ll have better chances in the job market when you’re armed with a beautiful smile. Candidates with healthy, attractive smiles are more likely to be hired or promoted. They’re often perceived as more confident, self-assured, friendly, and likeable.
People with dental problems are often self-conscious and often try to suppress their smiles to avoid exposing bad or missing teeth. Without a ready smile, you’ll come off as stiff and unfriendly.
How Do I Fix Misaligned Teeth?
Malocclusion (a bad bite) is one of the most common oral issues, but it’s easily corrected with orthodontic treatment. Our team uses fixed braces, hidden braces, gold braces, color braces, or clear aligners such as Invisalign to fix misaligned teeth. Each case is unique, and we’ll help you decide on an appliance and personalized treatment plan during your consultation.
