Why straighten teeth?
Most people seek teeth straightening treatment to improve one of their best assets – their smile. But did you know there are other important reasons to get your teeth straight? Check out why below.
Top six reasons why you should get teeth straightening treatment
Bite, chew and speak effectively
Permanent teeth straightening could improve crucial everyday functions such as chewing and speaking.
Avoid malocclusion complications
If you have a bite problem, teeth straightening may help you avoid painful symptoms and long-term complications related to your condition, including more serious TMJ disorders.
Easier teeth cleaning
Straightening crooked, crowded or overlapping teeth makes cleaning them easier, which can reduce the chances of tooth decay.
Lower chances of gum disease
It's harder for food and bacteria to get trapped between straighter teeth, contributing to healthier gums.
Improve teeth condition
Teeth straightening aligns your teeth, which means there can be less wear and tear due to teeth grinding and so on.
According to a survey conducted by the Australian Society of Orthodontics, over 60% of Australians believe a good smile gives you confidence. Yet more than half of us feel self conscious about our teeth.
