Three great benefits of straighter teeth
1 Improved self confidence
A beautiful smile boosts your self-esteem. Having straight, white teeth dramatically changes your appearance and actively improves your self-confidence.
When you know you have a lovely smile you want to show it. You smile and laugh more on a daily basis, which releases endorphins; the chemicals responsible for making you feel happier and less stressed.
Those with crooked teeth often feel self-conscious and shy away from smiling. This can have a negative affect on your wellbeing and prevent you from feeling comfortable in social settings.
2 Healthier teeth and gums
It’s not all about looks. There are actually a number of health benefits to having straight teeth. Having teeth that are overcrowded or unevenly spaced can lead to gum irritation and rawness.
When teeth aren’t straight, pressure from chewing is unevenly distributed among them, which can cause your teeth to wear down.
Having straight teeth allows a balanced bite, preventing this damage to your teeth.
3 Easy to clean
Crooked teeth are hard to clean. Some surfaces will be tucked away and hard to reach whilst brushing. These spots will collect bacteria more readily, which if left untreated, can erode your tooth enamel and wear holes in your teeth.
Straight teeth are easy to clean with a normal toothbrush, which allows you to remove any bacteria that has built up during the day.
