Discover the benefits of braces from your Folsom and Sacramento dentists!
Have you thought about improving your smile but aren't sure if braces are the right option for you? Drs. Jeff and Shaina DiMariano, your Folsom and Sacramento, CA dentists, discuss how you can benefit from orthodontics.
Like it or not, our society places great emphasis on a perfect smile. If your teeth aren't straight or you suffer from a noticeable bite issue, it can be hard to feel confident in social and business situations. Orthodontic treatment gives you the boost you need to feel confident in any setting.
Correction of bite issues
Bite problems occur when your bottom and top teeth don't fit together properly. If these problems are severe, you may accidentally bite the inside of your cheek and experience uneven wear to your teeth. Bite problems put added stress on your jaw and can lead to jaw pain, stiffness and headaches. Orthodontic treatment corrects underbites, overbites, cross bites and open bites, in addition to addressing under or overcrowding issues. Correcting bite issues can also make it easier to speak clearly.
Better oral hygiene
When your teeth overlap, it's much harder to keep them clean. Unfortunately, if plaque builds up in the overlapping areas, your cavity risk increases. People who have crooked or overlapping teeth are also more likely to battle gum disease, a dental issue that can occur when plaque turns into tartar, a hard deposit. After orthodontic treatment, your teeth will be straight and much easier to brush and floss.
Your teeth are designed to act as one unit, but when several are out of alignment, your risk of injury increases. If you experience a blow to the face or are injured playing your favorite sport, the teeth that protrude will take the brunt of the blow and may be damaged or knocked out. Braces reduce your injury risk by ensuring that all of your teeth are aligned properly.
