STRAIGHT TALK about Crooked Teeth
- Posted on: Feb 10 2017
While many might believe that pretty straight teeth are purely cosmetic, nothing could be further from the truth.
Straight teeth are HEALTHIER teeth. Straight, properly aligned teeth can help you avoid the negative effects of periodontal disease.
Properly aligned teeth are easier to brush and floss than crowded or crooked teeth. Properly positioned teeth can help gums “fit” more tightly around them, which may lead to better periodontal health.
With good oral hygiene, the chances of having plaque retention, tooth decay, and periodontal disease can be reduced.
DECREASED RISK OF ABNORMAL WEAR AND TRAUMA
Properly aligned teeth also reduce the risk of expensive procedures required to repair the effects of abnormal force, such as tooth chipping, breaking, or wear; and can be less stressful on the supporting jaw bone and joints.
So, what’s the big deal with Periodontal Disease? Severe periodontal infection, if untreated, can increase risk for heart disease, stroke and lead to complications with diabetes and pre-term labor.
