Why Braces Are More Important Than You Think

benefits of straight teeth SeattleAt Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry in Seattle, orthodontics have improved the smiles and the dental health of countless patients.

Consider the ways straight teeth can improve your quality of life:

  • They can upgrade your appearance
  • They can set you on a course for long-term oral health
  • They can improve your mental health and self-confidence

If you have straight teeth and an attractive smile, you are more likely to be happy with yourself. Straight teeth also show that you can act and carry yourself as a professional.

Less-obvious benefits of straight teeth

We all now that a beautiful smile improves one’s appearance. Everyone wants to look more attractive. However, the benefits aren’t purely aesthetic.

  • You are less likely to snore if your teeth are aligned properly
  • People may treat you with more respect than if your teeth were not straight
  • They feel good when you rub your tongue over them!
  • You are less likely to feel tooth pain due to displacement or misalignment
  • You are less likely to experience gum recession
  • Straight teeth can prevent decay

If you care for your braces properly, you can form healthy dental habits

Braces teach appropriate oral health behaviors. Having braces can make eating certain foods more difficult, and can especially make attempting to get food unstuck from the teeth harder.
