More than just a beautiful smile.
For most people, a beautiful smile is the most obvious benefit of orthodontics – Straight and healthy looking teeth will improve your looks. Many studies have shown that an attractive smile enhances your self-esteem as well as the ways in which other people act towards you. While everyone says you “shouldn’t judge a book by its cover” studies do show that people who are perceived to be more attractive are also thought to be friendlier, more intelligent and earn higher incomes.
Another benefit to braces is that ultimately they make your teeth fit together better which improves your bite. Most dentists agree that a better bite helps your teeth withstand biting forces so they last a lot longer. Also, a person with a better bite is much less likely to clench and grind their teeth, or to develop symptoms of TMJ such as head, neck and facial pain.
And last, but certainly not least of all straighter teeth also make it easier to keep the germs and plaque away. In the long run that means less inflammation, healthier gums and ultimately better general health.
